Fedora Hardware :: Can't Find ATI Graphics Drivers For Version 12

Mar 9, 2010

I have been searching for ages for graphics drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. I have several software that need hardware accelerated 3D. I found several threads that deal with this issue, but none of them seems to help. I tried the following:


I rebooted after each one and I still cannot get any hardware accelerated 3D; it is as if I installed nothing.

Fedora :: Can't Boot After Installing Graphics Drivers

Aug 2, 2009

I installed fedora 11 yesterday, and didn't get time to do anything else. And the first thing I did today was to install the nVidia graphics drivers. But after I rebooted the loadings screen comes up (the one with 3 loading bars) and then it's just a black screen with a blinking _

Fedora :: F15 Freezes On Different Hardware And Graphics Drivers?

Jul 3, 2011

My workplace is conducting a pilot of fedora15 for adoption as our SOE desktop. We've installed on 3 desktops and two laptops, and are experiencing an intermittent lock-up on each platform. In all cases so far over our two week trial, whilst users are performing routine work on the gnome desktop (e.g. email, web browsing, etc), the screen will freeze, and the mouse/keyboard appear to be inoperable, so it is impossible to go to a virtual desktop, etc. Only a hard reboot brings the PC back, and there are no logs, core dumps, etc.

We've been trying to eliminate sources, and have seen the fault on the following combinations:

* AMD/Intel
* A variety of graphics hardware (e.g. nvidia, intel 945)
* nvidia drivers (various versions), and nouveau
* Gnome 3 in normal and fallback mode
* rpms from the initial F15 release, and also after a full yum update (last week).

We have not been able to correlate the lock-up with particular usage patterns or system load. Sometimes, the desktop will be usable for a day or more, and other times, we may see three lockups in an hour.

There is a bug on this matter:


I am raising the matter here to see, because I am puzzled as to why we are experiencing it on all platforms, and yet it does not seem to be so prevalent in the wider community.

Fedora :: Poor Graphics In Wine Version 1.3.10 On F14 Using X.org Nouveau Driver?

Jan 13, 2011

I'm using a remix of F14 called Fusion Linux. It's all the same as fedora14. It's come preinstalled with xorg x11 nouveau driver. So, i'm not using Nvidia driver. Now, the problem is that the graphics in wine application are really poor. Fonts appear to be really hazy. See this image to get me better: [URL].. In earlier version of fedora and wine, i used nvidia driver. Graphics used to be good at that time.

Fedora :: Kernel Changed After Installing Nvidia Graphics Drivers

Jan 14, 2010

im having an intel E2180 processor with 2 gb RAM and an nvidia 8400gs graphics card. Lately i installed Fedora 12 on my system and found that with default settings the desktop 3d is not working. so installed the kmod-nvidia using yum after following the instruction.i also edited the grub.conf file to rdblacklist=nouveau to blacklist nouveau drivers.

Then once i rebooted i found two kernels in grub ie the old one and the one with PAE extension. when i booted into the old kernel its Xwindows failed to load showing a black screen and when i tried the new PAE kernel it booted in 640 x 480 resolution. {earlier i was getting a resolution of 1440 x 900 on my 17" widescreen monitor}. it also showed that the nvidia drivers failed to load. I also read in some forums that the PAE kernels are for systems with 4gb+ of ram. So i thought it better to reinstall the whole thing.
then i reinstalled the whole operating system using my fedora 12 dvd and performed the 'upgrade or replace the existing linux distribution'. interestingly now my older kernel has disappeared and the PAE kernel is the one that is remaining.

Fedora Hardware :: Graphics Card - Install Proper Drivers First?

Jan 29, 2010

I want to install a new graphics card, Nvidia Geforce 9400 GT, into my system running Fedora 12, x86_64.

* Should I install the hardware into the system first?
* Or should I download the proper drivers and install them first, before hardware?
* Do I need to disable or remove drivers for my integrated graphics card (Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics) before I do anything?

Fedora Installation :: After Installing Graphics Drivers Computer Not Booting Into 14

Jan 22, 2011

I recently switched my primary desktop over from Windows 7 to Fedora 14. I successfully installed the OS on to my hard drive and booted up, following which I installed all of the updates and rebooted. After my first reboot I downloaded the 10.11 Radeon driver and installed it (because the 10.12 was having an md5 hash issue), the install was (supposedly) successful, but when I restarted my computer it first progresses to this screen (copied from softpedia) and then goes black for a second, and then returns to that screen and halts at the end of the progess bar and does nothing. I am looking for help to get back into my system.

Fedora :: NVidia Drivers Installed - Graphics Errors Using Firefox

May 6, 2011

Sometimes, in Firefox, after looking a video and closing the corresponding tab, a still picture of the video appears in other tabs, even in some other applications than Firefox (e.g. Terminal). I've installed the nvidia drivers on Fedora 14. They seem to work properly.

Fedora :: Graphics In The Program Maple Doesn't Work Properly With The Default Drivers

Nov 1, 2009

I had originally followed the advice at Mauriat Miranda's Fedora Nvidia Driver Install Guide [URL] for installing nvidia's display driver on my HP Pavilion system 64 bit running Fedora 11. I had used his first method which just installs the relevant kernel module kmod-nvidia from RPMFusion. He also suggested an alternate method: obtaining Nvidia's installer NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-185.18.36-pkg2.run and using that. I downloaded it from Nvidia, but I didn't run it.

I recently lost X. This had happened previously after a kernel upgrade, and I just used grub to boot an earlier kernel to recover X, and then installed the upgraded kernel module to fix the problem. But this time, being deeply involved in something else, I panicked slightly, and, using dumb terminal mode I ran the Nvidia installer. It asked me to make various choices and in response to my answers, it decided to compile a new kernel module. This recovered X, but I then compounded things by installing the updated kmod-nvidia.

I realized afterwards that using both methods might create some conflicts, but X seemed to run properly. (I can tell because graphics in the program Maple doesn't work properly with the default drivers provided by Fedora 11.) Since then, when I restart nvidia, I get.

Fedora Hardware :: Enable The Gnome Shell With An AMD 6950 Graphics Card And The Default 15 Drivers?

May 25, 2011

how to enable the Gnome Shell with an AMD 6950 graphics card and the default Fedora 15 drivers? I may try the AMD Catalyst proprietary drivers but from history those usually lag behind the Fedora versions. I also read some people had issues with the current AMD Catalyst drivers in the Catalyst guide thread.

Also, the AMD 6950 graphics card fan is at full speed all the time in Fedora 15. I do believe you can with the Catalyst drivers using aticonfig but was wondering about the default Fedora 15 drivers?

Ubuntu Networking :: Update Drivers In 10.10 - Fedora 14 Using Same Version?

Dec 11, 2010

I've got an Atheros AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter and it works perfectly in Ubuntu 9.04 to 10.04, but when I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 I had to restart my computer several times before the wireless card would start and I would be able to connect to any networks? I then changed to Fedora 14 and the problem was also present so I assumed the problem was my wireless card and not the operating system. However I recently wondered if it was the OS again and went back to 10.04 and my wireless card works flawlessly again. So I'm wondering if there was an update to the drivers in Ubuntu 10.10, and I assume Fedora 14 using the same version? How would I be able to see if they did change? And how would I be able to use the version of the drivers in Ubuntu 10.04 in 10.10 if it is the drivers what changed?

Fedora Hardware :: How To Install Old Version Of NVidia Drivers From RPMfusion

Nov 5, 2010

The actual nvidia driver version (260.1912) does not work for my laptop (a Sony Vaio F11 series type, see bottom of page [URL]), I would like to install an older version (e.g. 256.53). Up to now, I cannot figure out how to tell yum to pick up an older version. Is there a way to do this (because kmod-nvidia is a meta package, there may be problems?), or do I have to install 256.53 manually (using the installer provided by nvidia)?

Ubuntu :: Ati Graphics Drivers Don't Appear To Work?

Aug 18, 2010

While trying live usb versions of different gnome and kde distributions, i noticed very unusable performance, however since i read that live media versions of linux did not perform well, i merely assumed that was the reason.

The sad thing is though, i installed ubuntu 10.4 x64 and i am still having the same problems. The only way to get the system slightly usable is to completely disable desktop effects. However, even then, it sort of feels like windows xp before you have installed graphics drivers - like it's not using the hardware at all.

Even the little fish screensaver is basically unrunnable.

My graphics card is an ati radeon x1950 pro AGP version. I read on their site that they only support up to x-org 11.4 and i heard that the linux distributions as of now are beyond that - so i cannot install the official drivers for it (whether they are any good anyway?). I saw in the package manager there are radeonhd drivers also, but i didn't really know what these are and this card is before ati started making their hd series.

So basically, i don't really know what to do or where to turn to in regards to this.

Some other small, unrelated questions are:

How can i increase the amount scrolled with each click of my scroll wheel so it's equivalent to windows? it seems to be one line at the moment, where as in windows i think it is something like 3 - whatever the case, it seems painfully slow.

Also, of my 5 button intellimouse explorer, strangely, the extra forward and back buttons seem to work, but the middle click button doesn't - or at least, holding it in and dragging the mouse to scroll doesn't seem to work - or should it be used for something different in linux?

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Up After Graphics Drivers

Jan 29, 2011

I made my Ubuntu-server(with GNOME desktop) unbootable after playing with the binary drivers for nvidia(my card is gtx 470). I was able to use it in the past with the proprietary drivers, but somehow I tweaked some settings, tried to install new drivers etc and actually I don't remember much of what I did because I had finals at school so my ubuntu install just remained unbootable like that. All I know is that I can't even boot in recovery mode (command line). I tried to boot with a live cd, chroot into the ubuntu partition and fix the graphics but it didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Enabling Graphics Drivers In 11.04?

Mar 12, 2011

I'm using an ATI Radeon HD 6850, and although drivers aren't enabled, 11.04 fits my resolution, and has animation/shadows. I need to enable drivers so games like Minecraft will run better. Whenever I install the drivers, 11.04 fails to load, or it'll just give me a barrage of glitches. How can I install the latest ATI Drivers for Ubuntu 11.04?

Ubuntu :: Use Older Graphics Drivers With 11.04?

Jun 13, 2011

For me, Ubuntu 11.04 can only use "software rasterizer" with Open GL. I think this is possibly because I have to disable kernel mode-setting on my PC and the new drivers with 11.04 need KMS to work. Though that's just my guess. In Ubuntu 10.04 hardware accelerated OpenGL works fine with KMS off. So does anybody know how I can use those older drivers in 11.04? OR Does anybody know how to make Ubuntu 11.04's drivers work with KMS disabled?

Fedora Networking :: Wireless - Harsh Packet Loss - Cannot Find Any Native AR5008 Drivers For My Card

Nov 2, 2010

I am recently trying to get a steady wireless connection running. I am currently using the default settings/driver Fedora 13 is stocked with. As my internet browsing is somewhat up and down in load times, I decided to check in a video game which is generally a good test for me. haha I am harshly spiking and cannot find the source of my problem so my guess is a driver issue.

lspci | grep Network:



It is is seemingly right, my Windows 7 harddrive works just fine, this is just one last of the few issues I'm having from fully formatting my winblows HD to use as Linux storage.

I cannot find any native AR5008 Linux Drivers for my card and it has been a frustrating day. I guess I'm not cut to be a network analyst just yet.

System specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
4GB DDR2 667
Gigabyte GTX465 1G
