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 :: HD4850 Not Working In Wheezy With Radeon Driver?

Aug 4, 2011

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
Identifier "HD4850"
Driver "radeon"
Endsection

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).

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 radeon.audio=1 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:

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:

[Code]...

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 Hardware :: Wheezy - Cannot Upgrade Nvidia Driver To 319.82 Backport

Nov 17, 2014

I'm on Wheezy with version 304.117 of the proprietary nvidia driver installed and working, but an application I have needs a newer version of the driver. I'm trying to install the 319.82 version in backports by following the instructions given here, but when I issue the command to install nvidia-kernel-dkms, I get the following:

Code: Select all> sudo aptitude -t wheezy-backports -r install nvidia-kernel-dkms

The following NEW packages will be installed:

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q

The mint-flashplugin problem is a separate issue which I've had for a while. I assume that it can be ignored for the purposes of this post.

If I'm reading the aptitude output above correctly, it's telling me that the only way to "resolve" the conflict is by uninstalling all nvidia support, leaving me with no driver at all. Is that right?

Debian Hardware :: NVidia Binary Driver Causing Hot GPU In Wheezy / Fix It?

Apr 21, 2011

Having upgraded to kernel 2.6.38 in wheezy, you now have to blacklist the nouveau driver as just uninstalling the packages don't seem to be enough as it is with squeeze. The latest nVidia 270 driver makes my GPU run over 10s hotter. The 264 driver in the Debian repo has the same effect. I can't install the 195 driver (which I know is ok with my GPU), for some unknown installation error (error 1 during compile).

I have a GeForce 7950GTX on my Dell laptop. The hardware is ok, as the temperatures are much lower with squeeze, and I have cleaned inside the laptop.

Is anyone else having any issues with excessive heat with nVidia? Could this be a driver or a kernel issue?

And why did I have to blacklist the nouveau drivers even though they weren't installed?

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 :: 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).

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.

Debian Installation :: Radeon ATI Gives Black Screen, Even With Nonfree-driver?

Debian Configuration :: ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 Driver In Squeeze?

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?

Jun 6, 2011

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

Jan 13, 2011

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 :: 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:

Debian :: No Gdm3 On Boot?

May 2, 2011

In playing around trying to get Debian/X installed/working on my PowerBook (machine details in signature), I at some point installed gdm. I then decided to try installing Gnome desktop from the list of tasks in aptitude. I didn't install absolutely everything in the list. (I skipped the accessibility stuff for the most part, for example.) But I did try installing gdm3. Since this conflicts with gdm, this meant uninstalling gdm. No problem. The install etc. seemed to go OK and Debian's configuration tool let me choose between gdm3 and xdm as the display manager. I chose gdm3.

Problem: gdm3 will not start on boot (and I'm not sure whether or how to start it later without leaving root logged in). I found that the init scripts for gdm were still installed in /etc/rc2.d/ etc. but nothing for gdm3. There was a script at /usr/sbin/gdm which appears to want to (1) delete itself; and (2) start gdm3. But the init script /etc/init.d/gdm contains a check for gdm being the default display manager. However, it isn't. The file it checks contained /usr/sbin/gdm3. So I tried using the update-rc.d and also insserv commands to disable gdm and to install the scripts for gdm3. I could disable the commands for gdm fine but not install links for /etc/init.d/gdm3. This script seemed to want console-screen which I didn't have but managed to install by some guesswork. I then got the init script for this installed for /etc/rcS.d but still couldn't get anything installed for init for gdm3. I also tried creating the links manually but this made no difference on boot. I also tried purging gdm rather than just uninstalling it and reinstalling gdm3. No go.

Eventually, I gave up and removed and purged gdm3 and reinstalled gdm and now the display manager starts as it should on boot.

I'm not sure what I did wrong and would like to know. I don't know that I'm bothered one way or another about gdm3 vs. gdm but I'd like to understand what is going on in case something similar happens with something I *do* care about. (I don't know what the advantages of gdm3 are so maybe I should care...)

I'm using Squeeze and my sources list includes stable contrib and non-free (added the last two so I can get firmware needed for wireless).

Debian :: Where Does Gdm3 Get Its Default DPMS Timeouts

Feb 9, 2016

There's a short version at the bottom.

I just installed jessie with gdm3 and use xfce.

I like my monitor to turn off when I'm not at the computer for more than 10 or 20 minutes or so and it wasn't doing that. I haven't used Linux for years and was used to xorg.conf/x11.conf and xinitrc and such.

So I rediscovered xset is responsible for DPMS settings. xset -q revealed DPMS was off. So I used it and put it in ~/.xinitrc. It didn't work. After some canoodling around I found out about xfce's Session and Startup gui thing. I was using that to run ~/.xinitrc.

When I got to my desktop and did a check with xfce4-terminal by running xset -q it would show DPMS enabled but the values were wrong. 600, 0, 900 to be exact.

After some searching I came across the information that xscreensaver will override DPMS settings as it manages DPMS too. So after more canoodling I found out about xfce's Screensaver preferences dialogue and used that to set my values. The values would immediately be set but the problem is that they are not persistent. If I reboot or log out the values will revert to 600, 0, 900. They will only reset to what I want them to be by running xfce's Screensaver preferences dialogue manually.

man gdm3, info gdm3, grep -r DPMS in /etc/gdm3, grep -r dpms in /etc/gdm3 reveal nothing related to DPMS. I've done some searching and nothing useful.

there is an /etc/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver-nogl which has some DPMS settings but the times are too large (2 hours); the only thing that matches is the off setting which is specified there.

xscreensaver -no-splash is present in the output of ps so it is xscreensaver and not gnome-screensaver.

The weird thing is that I re-enabled my ~/.xinitrc in xfce's Session and Startup gui thing and it is being run, but the numbers are getting set wrong after it is run. (I put an echo command after xset dpms 900 1200 1500, and the file is appearing in ~)

Where does 600, 0, 900 come from? Mystified on how to proceed from here. I don't remember enough on how to see what's doing what. Is there some sys thing or proc thing I can monitor to find out what's setting these values?

Short version: my xset dpms values are getting reset to 600, 0, 900 every time I logout or reboot. They revert to 600, 0, 900 every time I get to my desktop. I use gdm3 and xfce. Where are these coming from?

Debian :: System Won't Boot - Hangs On Gdm3

Jun 29, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on a Dell Studio Laptop, and this morning my computer woke up and gnome was randomly frozen. I dismissed this as a random error and proceeded to hard-reboot the computer. It now will not boot at all. After multiple attempts, every time the boot process hangs on "Starting GNOME display manager gdm3." I even left it there for 2 hours while I was gone to see if it would get past the hang. It did not, and was still stopped at that same line when I got back. get my system back. I have a live CD available to perform maintenance if anyone has an idea of what's wrong.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Log Into X Session As Root Using GDM3

Sep 20, 2015

To use most of my Kali applications, I want to be able to log into an X session as root. I know it is generally a bad idea and I don't want to do it as a rule, but it is useful for penetration testing (e.g. nmap and its GUI don't have most of the useful options when run as a regular user).

So how do I get GDM3 to allow me to log in as root? Currently, if I type in the user name "root" and log in, it just takes me back to GDM3. Could it work to add root to my user group (I really don't want to add all kinds of security holes)?
