Debian Multimedia :: Second Xserver Has No Connected Output With Radeon DIS
Mar 26, 2016
My notebook thinkpad w500 has two video cards, intel / radeon. When i test some 3d games by wine or some videos by mpv using dri_prime=1 to dynamic enable radeon card, the game/video window always tearing, see bug report [URL] ....
So I try to start second xserver directly use radeon card, command like this:
I put 20-radeon.conf into /etc/X11/radeon, which is:
Option "DRI" "3"
If i just put 20-intel.conf into /etc/X11/radeon (just use intel IDG), the second xserver runs ok. Just using radeon DIS the second xserver started without any conntected output. run DISPLAY=:1 xrandr could confirm that, all disconnetted, so it's black screen on second xserver vtn, and default xserver vt7 still ok.
Am i missing something to config second xserver using radeon DIS, or it's not possible...
I currently cannot get my printer to work (nothing ever get's printed) even though CUPS seems to be correctly configured and reports all jobs as "completed" without any errors. As I know that my printer works (I can print from my laptop on it) I currenty suspect my new PC's parallel port to maybe have a hardware issue. My question is now is there any way to check the parallel port?
Here are some details: from dmesg: lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven). from lsmod: parport 27954 3 ppdev,lp,parport_pc
In the BIOS the mode is set to EPP. So as far I can see (I am not really an expert) the kernel-modules are there, /dev/lp0 exists and has the proper permissions. Yet doing 'echo -en " Hello f" >/dev/lp0' does not produce any Putout on my printer that is connected via the parallel port.
I have installed Debian Lenny today from netinst cd. It all went good, hen I installed some basic utilities, daemons and libraries like dbus, hal, libgtk2.0, libasound2, alsa-utils, htop (for checking system load). Then I installed X.org with commandaptitude install -R xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-input-mouse xserver-xorg-input-kbd xserver-xorg-video-intel xinit xterm twmI used -R to pull less dependencies. When I ran startx X Server started, and I got on twm. But when I checked on htop, my memory usage was 175MB, and before starting X Server it was only 25MB. Why is X Server using so much memory on Lenny? I also have Debian Sqeeze on a different partition, it uses so much memory with all gnome services running+ iceweasel and amsn.
i somehow screwed my xserver (I guess it is the xserver). I got the following problem:
1) When i have 2 monitors connected, the cursor stays at the left one even though i select text on the right one.
2)(i plugged the left one out)As soon as i open a window and click on something in the window the window cannot be moved anymore, and the desktop cannot be selected anymore either (though u still can do something inside the window), as soon as you close the window (if you are lucky and there is a "close" button) the desktop can be used again.
This all started when i played a flash game which froze like everything but the game, and i had to restart the computer. I guess it somehow screwed the .conf file or the xserver. I already tried the xorg.conf.backup but it didn't help!
I have Lenovo 3000 n200. I'm new in debian, but it's great to me! I wan't to stay with this distro, but i Can't upgrade this to testing or unstable version. Lenny have too old packagges for me. All versions of squeeze (downloaded or upgrade from lenny) is broken. I can't run xorg. For about 2 weeks i'm serching for answer and i only found that this is xserver-xorg-conf. That's true this is the package that is broken, but cannot install this.
When i upgade system the synaptic package manager write me one package is broken (xserver-xorg-conf), so i delete it and install one more time. This same problem. So i downloaded and i have this same problem. When i restart system i cannot run xserver and gnome.
I recently installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers and I have a problem starting gdm. Xserver fails, only throwing a warning concerned to xkbcomp, something about ralt having two symbols... but just a warning anyway. Then, after waiting the screen flash between the tty and a black screen a few times;
i'm on the tty, from where I can "startx" without problem. I tried using the nv driver and gdm worked.. so i think it has relation with the nvidia drivers... If I start gdm from the tty, instead of using the startx command, then gdm appears but if I try to log in.. all freezes up.. Here's my xorg.conf generated by nvidia-xconfig: [URL]
I experienced this problem on Friday but didn't have time to write a warning.A couple of days ago, xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1+b1 reached Testing before a corresponding dependency (recommendation), thus breaking the hardware acceleration. The issue is (better) described here (1) by a developer.A possible solution is to keep (2) the previous version (2:1.10.2-1) or, if you already installed the faulty one, to grab the former version from Debian Snapshots (3) and downgrade the package.Because the error was a simple path change, one could also keep the new version of xserver-xorg-core and link the DRI Mesa modules to the directories that are inspected now (as described here ).The issue has already been addressed (5) and a new version should appear in Testing shortly.[URL]
I just wanted to post this in the forums for anyone else that was having the same issue. I looked all over the internet for 4 hours and could not find a solution and finally figured out what to do. Maybe this will help save some time for someone else.

redrawing windows in KDE is very, very sow (since 4.4 or so I guess, but maybe it was always like this). When I switch to a desktop running Kopete and Amarok, it takes like 2-3 seconds to redraw the applications. GTK apps are faster to redraw, although far from ideal. This happens both with the effects enabled as well as disabled. When the effects are enabled, it's faster, but still very slow.
When switching apps or desktops in Gnome with Compiz running, it's almost instantaneous... I don't think it's because of any particular effect like Blur, because I've disabled them all, though the compositing is up (e.g. the bar is transparent, but all other effects are off in KWin). On the other hand I have plenty of effects enabled in Compiz and it's still ways much faster.
I have ATI Radeon X1200 integrated card, using the radeon driver 126.96.36.199 (I'm not sure whether is it from experimental or Sid, but I don't think it matters, since the older versions were slow the same) without any particular configuration from my side (i.e. no xorg.conf).On my other computer with either quite powerful NVidia card or an Intel card the performance is the same in KWin and Compiz...
I have Debian WHeezy 7.7 KDE, card Radeon 5000 series. Card has HDMI, video on HDMI working, but sound not working. System see sound device, but if I select this and try to play music then no sound. I tried many things. Below is some lists.
I'm running a Squeeze system on a PC with an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. Until recently I had been using the fglrx drivers without difficulty, but a recent upgrade removed fglrx - apparently this is because ATI has yet to release drivers for Xorg 1.7. So I've switched to the open source driver (radeon), but am not getting any 3D acceleration - hence can't run desktop effects in either kwin or compiz. When I run "glxinfo | grep OpenGL" I get the following:
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.6.1 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20 OpenGL extensions:
It's the software rasterizer that is the problem, I gather. After Googling for similar problems encountered by others, I've installed firmware-linux and firmware-linux-nonfree, but to no effect. All fglrx-* packages are purged. Does anyone have any other thoughts? (I don't currently have an xorg.conf file in use.)
I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition (based on Debian Testing). I have installed an ATI Radeon 4850 w/ 1GB RAM. I am using FGLRX, and Catalyst Control Center seems to be working. However, even though I have selected "Override Application Settings" in CCC, I get no AA whether it be during gaming (Urban Terror) or in Compiz (3D Cube).

In Totem Movie Player I got full screen but playing is like slow motion, and in SMPlayer I can't get full screen. Window is in full screen but movie is not...
I have an older computer and I did a fresh install of Jessie
Procesor AMD, Graphic card ATI Radeon 9200 PRO / RV280
After instalation my computer boot into black screen. I have no problems with wheezy.
I installed manually firmware-linux-nonfree (in case) module R200_cp is loading correctly.
When I configure Xorg, my log file says something like that: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (EE) Segmentation fault at address 0x0 Fatal server error: (EE) Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting --------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
I try to connect my graphic card with my TV. I have ATI Radeon 4850 card with 7 pins S-video output and I want to connect it my TV using s-video to RCA cable (the RCA output is yelow, red and white, I assume the 7 pins has audio signal as well).
My card doesn't have problem when connect it wit my monitor via DVI, but the S-video out is not detected. How can I enable it? Can I configure the card from KDE? If so, how?
I'm using the driver from Slackware package and I'm using Slackware 13 stable 64.
Im trying to be able to output video to my tv with a low end atom cpu box(link below) running debian lenny. I realize it wont likely be true HD video. I also realize I wont be getting surround sound. My tv is a little bit older so it doesnt have a monitor input or I would have tried that. It does have HDMI and component though and i have a DVI to hdmi adapter and audio cables that will work once I have a video out solution. It does have a PCIE expansion bay but the power supply is only like 150w so i dont know that Ill be able to use a regular video card. I had considered some sort of usb output but dont know if any of that will work on linux. Any suggestions? Im pretty novice with the whole computer on my tv area and dont have alot of money to build a whole new system or i would just do that.
Excuse me if this is in the wrong place, I am new to the forum and Debian.
Today, while installing Ubuntu, I had a strange issue with my laptop in which after installation, I heard startup sounds and had no video display. After hours of frustration and about 7 install disks, I plugged my laptop into another monitor, and low and behold, it appears both of my desktops are on the external monitor. After trying to solve this issue, I decided to give the Debian Gnome live CD a try, but I now have the same issue.
I have used Debian Linux for two years, most recently the seventh or so iteration of Version 5. I use the Gnome desktop and the Synaptic Package Manager, not the Update Manager, for updates because it's easier to build a log with the former.In my most recent update, Synaptic stripped out all the xserver-xorg filesÔŅĹ47 in all. I thought it peculiar but did not know enough to interfere. When I rebooted, the system told me I must install xserver or correct GDM configuration and restart.
Have I been hacked? Am I being tested by the Linux Illuminati? Or does it have something to do with the warning message I received at the end of the update-upgrade, attached? And how do I go about reinstalling xserver? With Aptitude? I have tried running apt-get -f install, to no effect.
I'm using mplayer with shell-fm, in my shell-fm.rc I have the line extern = nice -10 mplayer -really-quiet -ao jack -cache 512 -noar -nojoystick -nolirc -noconsolecontrols -nomouseinput -demuxer lavf -lavfdopts format=mp3 -af-adv force=5:list=resample -af resample=44100:1:2:extrastereo-1.5 - This to me at least produces a pleasant audio output but despite the -really-quiet option mplayer is still outputting text, generally something like [mp3 @ 0xa3f5380] max_analyze_duration reached I've also tried the -msglevel all=-1 option and had a play with the MPLAYER_VERBOSE environmental variable, all with no joy.
Every time I open my terminal a warning message shows up. The warning is the following:
Code: Select allwarning: output DFP2 not found; ignoring
There is no output DFP2 in my system. I ran xrarndr and the outputs are the following:

After updating Squeeze (i386) on my Via C7 laptop with the Via Openchrome video driver vlc video ouput shows only alternating white/green grainy vertical bars. I tried changing the video output driver to x11 and sdl without success. I'll be trying to find a fix and if successful I'll post back. For the rest of you just beware of the latest upgrades. More information - My AMD/ATI desktop also running Squeeze (amd64) updated fine. It has the onboard ATI 2400 video driver.
I'm currently trying to get the game "Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory" working on a second XServer. So far, it runs nicely. However, I've got no sound which probably definitely isn't even connected to the game itself but rather PulseAudio, the XServer or the Ubuntu implementation:Sound on the 1st XServer (desktop) works perfectly. As soon as I start the game on the second XServer (and automatically switch to it), desktop sound is suspended (Totem even crashes) while there is no sound coming from the game. Also, people can't hear me talking on Mumble. When I switch back to the Desktop I can hear the game's (i.e. the second XServer's) sound, can listen to music again and people also hear me on Mumble again (and vice versa). A look at pavucontrol tells me that Enemy Territory is accessing and using the correct audio device. Switching back to the game yields the same result as 2)
Further notes:I have added my user account to the audio group. When started on the first XServer, Enemy Territory runs well and with sound. However, this is no solution for me as it affects the game's performance and I can't minimize the game then.)
Ideally, I'd like to continue listening to music and using Mumble while playing Enemy Territory. But first of all, sound in ET has to work at all.
At the moment I'm completely confused and don't even know where to look for an answer. I have found several bugs that might be involved in this which I'd like to mention for documentation purpose. The proposed solutions (1. using ck-launch-session, 2. running PulseAudio in daemon mode) haven't worked for me, though: [URL]
Unfortunately, I can't remember whether sound worked on the second XServer when I installed the game the last time (because there were other problems preventing me from playing it). According to this guy it did.
I'd be grateful for any hints that might point me in the direction of solving the issue. If necessary, I'd also get my hands dirty and look for the bug in the source code. If I just knew where to start? So, even if you don't have a solution for me, you can maybe answer the following? In Ubuntu, is sound (PulseAudio) supposed to be associated with an XServer instance? If so, is it only the X session currently being displayed which is allowed to play sound? Or should the sound of all sessions get mixed and be played no matter which X session is active?
I'm using Debian Jessie, KDE 4.14.2. At some point over the last 6 months or so a couple of related problems appeared on my desktop...
1) Sometimes sound appears not to be working and I have to go to change the output device to get this to work (right click on kmix, audio setup, hardware setup, device conguration dropdown to change between analog output and speaker.. -see screenshot [URL] ....). This is often a problem but is particularly a problem if I boot up with a headphone/speaker plugged into the jack...then if I remove this, it doesn't output to the laptop built-in speakers unless I change the settings.
What I want it to do is fairly straightforward, I just want it to use the laptop speakers when nothing is plugged in, but use headphone/external speaker output if i put something in the headphone jack.
2) I have lots of sliders when I click on kmix in my taskbar - I don't really understand what all of these do, they seem like duplicates...and also, sometimes sliders for specific applications seem to behave independently, defaulting to very quiet, or so on - generally behaving strangely! see: [URL] .... for a screenshot.
Similarly, when I click the button to go to mixer, I get multiple duplicate tabs, some with lots of sliders again - some with none: [URL] ...., [URL] ...., and [URL] .....
I also have a problem, much more minor, but perhaps related: when I'm playing music in banshee, if I reduce volume using the system volume (keyboard shortcuts/ kmix), it goes down in banshee...but doesn't go back up again. so if i mute system sound then unmute it, banshee stays muted and i have to use the specific setting within banshee...
I'm not sure where these problems came from as it all previously worked fine within kde for me. Perhaps i messed something up intentionally or perhaps an update caused this ...
I have recently acquired a Lenovo Q150 machine and attempting to use it as a HTPC. I've been reading that with this platform a newer kernel is required to make wireless, sound and a few other tweaks work correctly--so I bumped up to testing repositories to upgrade to the 2.6.38 kernel.[URL]...
The audio on this device has been more than a pain. I'm currently using XBMC to play media on this device and after setting the outputs to custom: plughw:1,9 sound is played correctly. I found this out by using alsamixer, selecting the sound card with the F6 key (Nvidia 1) unmutting all outputs, quiting, and running speaker-test -D plughw:1,X where X is the sub-device from the output of aplay -l until sound could be heard from the receiver.
Now my problem is that applications like mplayer, and iceweasel won't output any sound. I'd prefer not to use the optical out on the device and would like to send sound over HDMI. Has anyone had any luck getting it to work as it should?
I've also installed pulseaudio, not too sure if this is really needed. I've also used module assistant before upgrading to compile alsa from source, it worked but i just decided to upgrade the kernel instead of dealing with m-a every time an update comes through.
