Debian :: Version Of OpenGL Does Radeon Driver Support?

Jun 4, 2011

I have the HD4850 and, I wanted to know if it is possible to use the CLI to see which version of OpenGL is the latest version I can use according to my driver. If it's not possible via the CLI then, what's the next best way? (I can't find a website for the radeon driver listing the latest OpenGL support per supported card).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon Driver Opengl Support ( Lack Of )?

Sep 20, 2010

I'm an owner of a ATI mobility radeon X1300 card. Since ATI tagged my card as legacy, i'm stuck with the open source radeon drivers. Wich doesn't bother me, as i know they are slower and openGL support doesn't equal fglrx. What does bother me is that the current version 7.9 dev. claims to have full opengl support up to 2.1. I'm trying to use a extention that is part of the openGL version 1.3 and it's failing. This is a known issue for a long time now and it really disappoints me. "Compressed textures" is what i'm talking about.

Is there any way to make sure that drivers aren't tagged with something they support if they obviously don't? I guess the KDE4 kwin vs drivers thing is the same as i'm trying to say now. Drivers should be documented with what they effectively support and not what they should support. What can I do to make this public to xorg developers? I could only think about posting this here as i have no idea where to put it elsewere. Could someone please point me in the right direction to where i should send this complaint?

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get OpenGL To Work On Radeon Free Drivers (Jessie)

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie. All the firmware packages are properly installed, and so are the radeon free driver packages.

However, Gallium falls back to llvmpipe, which from what I understand is a software rasterizer and not actually hardware rendering.

Everything works fine except some specific things like KDE's cube animation, which says it can't be enabled because it requires OpenGL.

How do I get Debian to run Gallium properly?

I attached some relevant info...

glxinfo | grep -i opengl

Debian :: Compiling Wine 1.2.2 From Source Has No OpenGL / D3D Support

Feb 13, 2011

After finally figuring out how exactly how to compile something from source, I did it with Wine. However, there's a problem, when I'm trying to play a game on Steam (Half-Life) on a TNT2 graphics card (With NVIDIA drivers 71.86 installed as well as all of the packages needed to compile Wine from source), everything either lags or has an error.

One of these errors is that OpenGL32 isn't being initialized after attempting to start the game in that mode. Another error (or I should say problem) is that in Direct3D mode, it just.. crashes lol. Also, in Software mode, it LAGS horribly and I don't think it has to do with the hardware limitations I have on this machine. I did however install the glx and gl drivers AFTER I compiled Wine, do I have to do yet another install?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 3D Support With Radeon UMS Driver + Kernel 2.6.34rc5 + X Server 1.8?

Apr 26, 2010

This is just to report that I've got 3D support successfully enabled on my Mobility Radeon HD3200 chip with the open source driver on openSUSE 11.2. I did this to replace the proprietary fglrx driver that has already been installed for quite some time on my system.

Uninstalled fglrx, and here we go... Basically what I did was to get the latest X.Org server (1.8) and Mesa from Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.2 I changed all the corresponding system packages to the versions in that repository. I noticed that I cannot get any 3D support when pairing the last X server with the updated openSUSE 11.2 kernel (2.6.31.12_0.2). With RadeonHD driver it gives me no acceleration at all (No DRI), perhaps it is still intentionally disabled to prevent lockups in r600 cards. With Radeon KDE wouldn't start.

So to get usable driver support I have to update the stock kernel to the one in Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.2 I installed the 2.6.34-rc5-22 kernel and reboot. Immediately I notice that KMS is working, but I could not get DRI to work, presumably caused by the drm being unable to locate two related firmware files (it is there in the kernel, just doesn't know why it is not being loaded). Other than that I do not know why I can't get any acceleration with KMS on. To workaround I passed the 'nomodeset' parameter to the kernel to run in UMS mode instead, and voila! with UMS 2D + 3D accelerations are working. I can enable kwin effects just fine.

Since this is a laptop I need suspend & resume and power management working. Good news is s2ram works perfectly with extra parameter. And all the new Radeon power management options: DynamicPM, ClockGating and ForceLowPowerMode can be enabled just fine! (For UMS you need to generate a xorg.conf and put those options in)Performance is good. So far it's faster than fglrx in some areas and slower in some other area. Now this is truly amazing!

Debian :: Which Driver For Mobility Radeon 7500?

Jan 31, 2011

I'd installed Puppy and was very happy with the performance on my laptop, but I decided to switch to Debian because of the ap-get feature. I decided to go with JWM instead of one of the default desktop environments, but now I'm having to configure everything manually, and I'm pretty lost. So far, I've got X and JWM installed (though no graphical login, and have to startx manually).

Priority one is to update the video driver and get the best performance possible. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500. I know the fglrx driver doesn't work with this card, but I don't know which package to install. When I type "apt-get install radeon", it spits out "E: Couldn't find package radeon"

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 :: Installing ATI Radeon HD 5700 Driver On Squeeze 6.0.1

Jul 19, 2011

I've been on numerous websites--with tutorials telling how to install the ATI drivers, I'm running Squeeze 6.0.1 Gnome amd64, the tutorial I am using is located at the ATIProprietary Debian Wiki [URL] when I try the following:
sudo apt-get install fakeroot debhelper build-essential libstdc++5

I get this:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package fakeroot is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.

Package debhelper is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package 'debhelper' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package build-essentials
E: Unable to locate package libstdc++5
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libstdc++5'

I have a feeling that apt-get is not searching the web, yet searching a CD perhaps? Because when I've tried the apt-get update, I get the following:
Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54] squeeze Release.gpg
Media change: please insert the disc labeled
'Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54'
in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press enter

After doing that, nothing happens, and my apt-get still doesn't work, everything I try and install like build-essential says it's not found. Also when I
su
nano /ect/apt/sources.lst
the list in nano is empty???

I'm currently running a dual boot with windows xp/debian but as soon as I can get everything working, I'm going to turn this into a full linux system. Also my sound doesn't work, but my sound is HD sound that goes via the video card, I have it hooked up HDMI to my LG tv/monitor, sound works fine on xp. I think once I get the video card drivers installed it should possibly fix my sound issues at the same time.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 4870x2 Catalyst Driver \ Finding The Proper Configuration Of OS Version And Driver Version?

Apr 8, 2010

I've been searching for an hour or so and can't seem to find a concrete answer. My endgame is having Ubuntu successfully installed (either 9.10 or 10.04) with a fully working Ati 4870x2. I desperately need some help on finding the proper configuration of OS version and driver version. I installed 10.04 with the 10.3 driver package from ATI's site and it was a no go - I had nothing but problems.

I would like to have full 3d acceleration so I can play some games through Wine. This is a powerful card - I know ATI doesn't have a great reputation in the Linux world but I really hope there is a driver version I can install to get some good results.The rest of my specs are in my signature I need to install 64 bit Ubuntu to make use all of the system and video ram.

Alright, Lenny has a working "fglrx-driver" package for my laptop, but Squeeze does not. Would it be possible to install the one from Lenny on Squeeze since Squeeze has newer libraries and such? I know I can't install new stuff with older libraries, but can I install the old stuff with newer libraries? I am at the end of my rope here! I mean ATI sucks and we all know this, but I've always found a Linux/open-source alternative that worked, until Squeeze.

Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD3200 And Official Driver In Squeeze?

Apr 5, 2010

I am using the latest squeeze (2.6.32-6 kernel) on a Thinkpad X100e.Most things works fine (after some tinkering though) but I cannot install the official ATI driver.I have tried:1) Downloaded the latest official drivers from ATI's site.a) If I choose install, it says that everything works but the driver is not actually installed. After reboot I don't have X anymoreb) If I choose build packages for Debian testing, the packages are not built. 2) Downloaded the not so latest official drivers. Same as in case 1)3) Tried to install them with the sgfxi script. The script reports a success but still after a reboot, I have no X.4) Tried to apt-get install fglrx-driver package from sid. Everything installs fine, after reboot I have X but no 3d acceleration.

Debian Configuration :: ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470 Non-free Driver Installation?

1- I'm trying to install the ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470 driver over the non-free repository ...the problem is that until now i didn't found a recent documentation ...and to be honest i don't know which procedure should i use to rightly install the driver .

2- I have two graphic cards (integrated Intel with the i5 processor), and i can't change the default one to the ati! because debian had set the intel card as a native one...! that's why i m wondering if just an installation of the non-free drivers will solve this or not! I think every body will ask me how the lspci output looks like so here is it : 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor DRAM Controller (rev 02) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor PCI Express x16 Root Port (rev 02) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset HECI Controller (rev 06) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller (rev 05)00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)

Debian Hardware :: Radeon X1050 - Is This Card Supported In Squeeze By Either The Non-free Firmware Or The Proprietary Driver

Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Driver Support: Built-in Or Loadable?

Jun 26, 2010

Is there a way to programmatically determine whether a particular driver support is built-in rather than a loadable module? I'd be grateful if somebody would share how. I have written a shell script using the RTC (real time clock). I can check whether the rtc-cmos kernel module exists and load the module accordingly as needed, but I don't know how to determine when the driver is built-in. Of course, if the driver is built-in then the module does not exist.

I seem to recall there is a method to query the kernel config file (/proc/config.gz), through which I probably could grep for the CONFIG_RTC_DRV_CMOS parameter. I also can check whether /proc/driver/rtc exists. If that file exists then either the driver is built-in or the module was loaded.I realize the rtc-cmos driver is built-in with the standard Debian kernel build, but I still would like a way to query where the driver is supported.Is there a straightforward or direct method to query the kernel whether a particular driver is built-in?

We have a RHEL 5.1 system that is moving to new hardware, however the kernel at this release doesn't support the new hardware, due to the Qlogic card change. I tired the Redhat KB and Bugzilla. Is there a Kernel change list etc I can search. Never really played around with the kernel too much so I'm just after some pointers for looking up this information. Offically its not supported until Redhat 5.3, I'm trying trying to research kernel info so I can tell the customer they have to upgrade.

Debian Configuration :: Radeon DRI Driver, Clicking "Apply" It Fails?

Mar 3, 2011

i couldn't get out after many hours of reading documents/posts/forums etc.

The issue:In Kde 4.4.5, using xorg and radeon opensource driver, i can't set OpenGL for desktop effects. Clicking "Apply" it fails. OpenGL seems corrupted someway. I have to stay on XRender. This is the glxinfo output:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.7.1
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
OpenGL extensions:

The story:i was running previously kde with nvidia propertary driver and a nvidia board. Then i removed the board for a fault and put a sapphire radeon HD5450. Initially i set up propertary radeon fglrx. At the end, i decided to use the opensource drivers, removed in the best way all fglrx files and links. So i then followed the wiki for reinstall open source radeon drivers, did it many times, also reinstalling xorg with purge, same for libgl1-mesa-xxx etc, but i still cannot use the OpenGL hardware support (should be DRI, that is correctly installed but not loaded).

Seems to be really an opengl corruption, if i disable the check on apply, and select OpenGL rendering, i get a complete blank screen.

Some information of the system:
01:12 ] angelo@angel3 [~] cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0
vendor_id: GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
