Debian Multimedia :: Radeon Stopped Detecting Proper Resolution In Testing-Wheezy?

Apr 19, 2011

I have a LMDE (Mint Linux Edition based on testing, now Wheezy) i386 that I just did a dist-upgrade on and now it isn't properly detecting my monitor resolution. I have two 1680x1050 monitors, one attached to the DVI and another to a VGA video switch. When I rebooted to the new 2.6.38-2-686 kernel both monitors were giving me 1024x768. I futzed around for a while and could then get the the DVI monitor to correctly identify the proper resolution, but the VGA monitor resolutely refused to see more than 1024x768.

I was able to get the proper resolution by entering these commands:


Should I file a bug report, and if so, with whom? I have to say, the Debian bug report process is not too newbie (or even not-so-newbie) friendly, but I'd like to help if it doesn't require me to hand-configure a MUA.

Also, I suppose I shouldn't mention it in a single post, but my mouse is behaving rather unpredictably now (click speed, selecting), and trying to reboot dismounts the file system and then starts up again giving me my display manager (in my case KDM), without restarting the system (both from "sudo reboot" and trying to restart with KDM or the Gnome widget). If I really want to restart the system I have to halt it first and hit the power button.

Debian :: Radeon Driver And By Consequence Gdm3 In Wheezy?

May 21, 2011

I want to use the open source radeon driver. My video card is AMD/ATI RADEON HD4850. I want 3D acceleration even if it's inferior to fglrx's although I would like if it exceeded fglrx's performance but the performance of the driver is not the point of this thread. Fortunately, fsck was checking the hard drive upon booting so I had time to write the boot output in this computer which I believe would be of help.

Video card:
Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV770_pfp.bin"
*ERROR* Failed to load firmware!
disabling GPU acceleration

gdm3: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request firmware. I attempted to install firmware-linux and do sudo gdm3 but all that did is say gdm3 lasted for 0.x seconds where x changes and it kept re-printing that sentence infinitely. I also rebooted and tried to let gdm3 start itself.

Firstly, I'm assuming the open source driver relies on proprietary firmware. Why is this the case? Secondly, how do I get the radeon/RV770_pfp.bin firmware? Is it not in the firmware-linux package? Why does it matter that GPU acceleration is disabled for loading gdm3? Isn't simple 2D enough? (I'm not saying this because I don't want to have 3D enabled since I do want it enabled but because I would imagine that 2D capabilities are enough to load gdm3). If more information is needed, just ask.

Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD 3200 HDMI Audio On Wheezy

May 6, 2014

I recently switched over one of my Ubuntu machines to Debian Wheezy. On the Ubuntu system I was able to get the HDMI audio working by adding to grub. I've tried this on this system to no avail. The fglrx-legacy-driver causes underscan and I'd like to avoid it if possible for convenience.

Things I've tried:

fglrx-legacy-driver - Introduced underscan while not solving the in grub boot line - No effectGoogling for several hours - There's a lot of topics about this, but most are old and irrelevant, and the ones that are current enough didn't solve my issue.Yelling at it - HDD light blinked a few times, no change
lspci shows

Debian Hardware :: HD4850 Not Working In Wheezy With Radeon Driver?

I have wheezy up to date and the xserver-xorg-video-radeon package is at version 6.14.2-1. I am using the linux-image-2.6.39-2-amd64 package as well for the kernel. When I boot, it stays on the tty1 console and I can't start gdm3 manually (it also doesn't start automatically).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Monitor Won't Detect Proper Resolution / Solve This?

Dec 27, 2010

This has been happening with the majority of screens I try to plug into, but the proprietary nvidia driver never detects the correct resolutions -__- the open-source driver works perfectly with a little xrandr magic, but I'd like to have some 3D acceleration going on. I'm using the desktop version of Nvidia ION and ubuntu 10.10, with the current nvidia driver (from the repositories). The native resolution is 1440x900 @60 Hz. Any thoughts on this? Again, the nouveau driver is great but I'd like to have VDPAU and the like working. code...

Networking :: Debian Testing (Wheezy) Update REALLY Broke Networking

May 8, 2011

The update that broke things contained some 400 packages.The problem is NOT hardware related. There are 2 other linux installs on the laptop that work the way they should.This is all related to using a wired network connection.The update removed the package network-config and did not replace it. Not sure that is the problem because that package is related to the gui and I can not get an ip in cli.

I am stuck at cli because the new kernel broke nvidia (pretty normal). There was also a new xserver, which tends to break nvidia, and as I recall a new kde. Anyway I am unable to rebuild the nvidia driver because I can not establish a network connection to my network to get the packages needed to fix it.

Debian Multimedia :: I386 And Amd64 Proper Deb Packages Of UMPlayer

Apr 3, 2011

the mcr85+1 packages were built using qt 4.6.3, so will be squeeze-compatible. umplayer is a fork of the abandoned smplayer project which adds skinning, shoutcast stream, and minitube-like videos search, playback, and download capability to the program.


i did a pull and build from the svn repo, since that is newer than the 0.92 debs on the website and solves some videos issues. debianized sources included so one can build the program on any architecture that supports qt 4 4.6 and it's a good idea not to trust anybody's binaries off the web, so to be really safe, rebuild the program yourself if you don't know who the heck i am. update 20 april 2011: link to svn 143 builds and sources: [url] update: 25 june 2011: new pull from svn--fixes the returning control bar problem with skins and kde 4 kwin desktop effects enabled:


squeeze users should use the mcr85 packages, the mcr110 ones need qt 4.7. sources included as usual. it looks like it would be a nice addition to the debian repo...

Debian Multimedia :: Broken Scrollwheel In Wheezy

Apr 13, 2015

Something within the group of updates which I installed last week (April 6 to 10 or so) has impaired the functionality of my mouse's scroll wheel. It will no longer scroll pages on Iceweasel, Midori, some PDF readers, PCManFM, and others. The "up arrow" and "down arrow" seem also to have been compromised. I suspect the culprit might be libx11. This is an amd64 system with the nvidia video driver.

If you do, please let me know what sound card you're using. I'm beginning to think its the driver. All kinds of weirdness in early bootspace and also alsactl init fails with a missing init directory for the device.

I'm on a Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE and it's completely non-functional. I've seen bugs reported with the audigy LS but never the SE.

Fedora :: Second Monitor Not Showing Proper Resolution?

Oct 1, 2010

It seems that whenever I boot my laptop (hp probook 6450b) without a monitor attached, then boot with a monitor later attached, the configuration gets all messed up.

Currently, if I boot with the monitor attached, right after the blue loading screen (at the login prompt) i get two black monitors and a mouse, with no login screen. Unplugging the monitor shows the login screen on the laptop.

If i boot without the monitor attached, log in, then plug it in, i see the following from xrandr:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2390 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 310mm x 174mm
1366x768 59.6*+
1024x768 60.0


However, now when I reboot, all settings are lost, and if the monitor is attached, i get the black screen with a mouse at login.

I did notice that when I shutdown, it hangs on "Running guests on default URI", and i get a stack trace. It will keep dumping stack traces, and i have to hold down the power button to force it off.

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Display The Proper Resolution

Feb 2, 2010

I installed 9.10 on a computer I'm working on, and right away the graphics went out. It won't display the proper resolution without shoving the display significantly to the left.

After MUCH Googling, I found that this can be fixed by a driver called i915. After much MORE Googling, I found [URL], which as you can imagine filled me with relief.

And THEN I try to follow the instructions and discover to my pure horror that GRUB has been gutted and made unusable in 9.10. GRUB2 just simply does not seem to have an option to insert the i915 driver into my boot command.

should I just forget this unstable release and burn a 9.04 disk instead?

Ubuntu :: Unable Getting Proper Screen Resolution?

My machine is dated, that's for sure, but it's never given me problems. Ubuntu has worked flawless until the 10.04 update. Now I'm not getting my proper screen resolution of 1024.768, and Ubuntu won't recognise my screen. Also, when I try to load up my nvidia drivers on the Hardware Drivers app, and reboot the computer, when GDM loads I get an error that the nvidia module fails to load, and there is no such driver.

CentOS 5 :: Cannot Get Proper Monitor Resolution To Display?

Jan 7, 2010

I am having video issue with ubuntu 9.10 and centos 5.4 cannot get resolution higher than 800x600 on Viewsonic vg930m monitor...The first time I installed ubuntu 9.10 worked great, since then no better than 800x600 on both linux distros. Any ideas it is very annoying, like using web browser on a small tablet pc....This monitor works great with opensolaris, though.

Using both distros in virtualbox right now but even if not virtualized install on hard drive I cannot get higher than 800x600...Driving me nuts.

Debian Multimedia :: Ffmpeg X264 Only 2 Presets In Wheezy?

Jan 12, 2015

I use ffmpeg to covert video files for the net.

Code: Select allffmpeg -i infile -vcodec libx264 -vpre ipod640 -b 250k -bt 50k -acodec libfaac -ab 56k -ac 2 -s res.mp4

which works good. I was wondering if I could use larger resolution presets, but

find /usr -iname '*.ffpreset' only gives

with only 2 presets for libx264.

I installed ffmpeg from deb-multimedia. Is there a package which provides further preset files? There should be e.g. hq, max etc..

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Won't Install On Wheezy 7.8 Sparc

Jan 18, 2015

So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?
