Fedora Installation :: ATI Radeon HD3400 Drivers - No Display
Oct 7, 2009
I am using Dell studio 1537. I tried to install propitiatory driver for my ati radeon hd3400. After installation and reboot, I got no display and my system rebooted. Now I had just reinstalled fedora11. Any Way to install ATI driver safely?
I've loaded Fedora and must say what a nice OS! But I'm having some issues getting the video working correctly so let me jump right into the issue. The video is very garbled and hard to read. can't seem to find a way to correct what would appear to be a driver issue. Here are a list of things tried:
- display works fine with Ubuntu
- display is clear but is chopped off when using an external monitor from onboard vga slot
The video card is an ATI radeon and the linux drivers from the ATI site don't work with the new images that are out yet.
Just finished wiping and re-installing F12 From a DVD on an Dell Inspiron 9300 with a NV 6800. The NVidia site driver refused to install, so I used the method documented here
as instructed to in the sticky. On rebooting, after the load animation, the screen goes blank/black. If I click around, I can hear some beeps from the OS so I assume that things are running but i just can't see anything.
I upgraded my HP Elitebook 6930p from 9.04 to 9.10. When X starts the display shows random lines. I can boot into "recover" mode from GRUB and get the command prompt. 9.04 worked fine so I'm pretty sure it's not the video card. The video card is ATI Radeon HD 3400.
I just finished building my new machine. I've got windows 7 running just fine on it, but I wanted to dual boot Ubuntu 10.04. I downloaded the 64 bit iso and tried installing it from both a live cd and a usb drive. When I boot from either (cd or usb), I see the Ubuntu loading/boot screen, but after the data is loaded, my display goes black and seems not to be able to find a signal. I assumed initially that it was probably due to the fact that I was connecting to my tv by HDMI cable. I guessed that Ubuntu did not have HDMI drivers for my video card, ATI Radeon HD 5750, by default. Then today, my new monitor arrived and I switched to the DVI output on my video card. I assumed that this would allow me to boot and install. I was wrong. I experienced the same symptoms on my monitor via DVI as I did on my TV via HDMI. why my monitor drops the signal as soon as it leaves the loading/boot screen?
I want to get Debian stable working on an iMac 11,2 (previous model):
1/ Same problem as this one, but I solved it by installing the fglrx-driver 2/ New problem: magic mouse and wireless keyboard don't work - solution: install .38-kernel from backports 3/ New problem: fglrx for .38 requires linux-headers.38 requires linux-kbuild.38...
So again stuck with the vesa-driver. I'm quite happy with the wireless mouse and keyboard working, so I'd rather stay with linux-image.38.
Two possibilities: 1/ I get the radeon-driver working 2/ I get the fglrx-driver working
I'd prefer the first method, but as you can see in the log (infra), there's a version mismatch between the kernel and the radeon-module. Any ideas how to get around this?
Using the radeon-driver gives me the following EE's in xorg.0.log.old: (EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed because of a version mismatch. (EE) RADEON(0): Acceleration initialization failed (EE) RADEON(0): clock recovery failed (EE) RADEON(0): channel eq failed (EE) GLX error: Can not get required symbols.
The las error is also shown as the only error when I use the VESA-driver; so clearly that is not the problem. I have tried without an xorg.conf, and the following xorg.conf won't work either: Section "Module" Load "glx" Load "dri" EndSection ..... I also tried the radeonhd-driver, but that doesn't change anything.
Well I've been trying to get drivers installed for this card for a few days now and I can't get anything to work. The proprietary drivers for this card don't support the xorg version installed in F14. I've tried mesa and ati drivers but I can't get them to actually work, they both just cause x to crash during startup. I've looked through the threads for ati drivers but they all seem to talk about using the latest catalyst drivers and thus non of them have helped me much.
The display card of my notebook is ATI rd 6370m ,the OS is fedora14. After I installed the driver download from ATI web site, it says that my computer can only run 2D can't run 3D. I want to know if some one used the same card with me in fedora14 has run 3D sussesfully? After the installlation I run "#aticonfig" it says "can't find the adaper".
I just installed Ubuntu last night parallel to windows vista ultimate (no problems). My biggest problem is that when I tried to install the nvidia display drivers, I somehow downloaded a server based driver (and am having amazingly difficult problems). I use a dual monitor set up (both are plug and play LCD displays) and i'm not too worried about aesthetics but rather, performance. I downloaded the correct driver but now I don't know how to install it. Is there a way to uninstall this server driver?
I have a MacBookPro5,1 system that can boot into Fedora 12 x64 as well as Mac OS X. My installation of Fedora is set to use the nVidia graphics drivers to provide 3D acceleration when running the operating system natively. I have installed VMware Fusion on Mac OS X, and I can use it to boot my installation of Fedora into a virtual machine. However Fedora refuses to go into X Windows and just sits there with a blank screen. I can use Ctrl+F2 to switch to a command line and log into the system through the command line interface.
I'm not exactly sure why this is happening. However, I suspect that it is because when the system runs virtually, it does not make use of the nVidia graphics card. Instead VMware Fusion provides a virtual VMware SVGA 3D adapter. What would it take so that Fedora would use a driver that is compatible with this virtual display adapter when running in a virtual machine, and then use the nVidia driver when the system boots natively?
I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit (I had 32 bit before) and I want to get my graphics card working. I have an ATI Radeon 5750 hd card. I tried to use the proprietary drivers from "hardware drivers" but I get a watermark in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and the resolution is terrible. Also, the whole screen seems to be vibrating, which kills the eyes, so I got rid of that driver.
I also tried to download and install the driver from ATI website [URL]... but ubuntu couldn't open the pakage. I gave me some error message about the "encoding text" or something like that. So how (if it's possible) do I get my video card working so that I can use compiz and run 1080 resolution? I have been through tons of threads but none of them helped my any.
Unfortunately I'm having trouble finding proper driver support for the ATI radeon x1200 as described by another poster:
You should still be able to get full 3D support for your hardware by downloading & installing the drivers manually.
This is where it gets complicated, unfortunately.
ATI dropped support for some "older" 3D devices some time back (actually not all that old in many cases - it made a lot of ATI card owners very upset). So I'm not sure which drivers you'd need to download & install to get your 3D hardware working.
The Radeon x1200 device in your notebook is, confusingly, not the same as a desktop Radeon x1200 card.
I just attemted the install for the Radeon unified drivers. Im running Ubuntu 10.04 with a X1200 series graphics card. 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller : ATI Technologies Inc RS690M [Radeon X1200 Series] [1002:791f] The setup seemed to go fine and I restarted as it suggested. but now when I attempt to open the new catalist control center application it gives me a message about not detecting any Radeon components or I need to configure them. Sadly this message isnt copy/pasteable.
I just built myself a new 64bit computer, but I'm having a little trouble getting it going. At first I put windows 7 on it, but it requires 1gb of RAM just to run it's basic programs, and it's all bogged down with all these useless programs, and when I tried to turn off some programs to make it faster, half my stuff stopped working all together, because they required all these programs just to run other programs, it's just absolutely ridiculous.
So I looked into Linux, and after asking around a bit, I installed Debian. It's exactly what I want in an operating system, completely customizable, but I guess I've been spoiled by microsoft and I'm not that good with all the command lines and configuring the kernel.
Righty now I'm trying to get my video card going, but I can't even figure out how to get the drivers installed. I went to amd.com and got the drivers, but when I try to just put them in the bin, but it keeps telling me I don't have administrator priveleges, but I do. Then I tried following this manual wiki.debian.org/Manual-Howto#Atibinarydriver]Manual-Howto - Debian Wiki , but I got stuck at the part where it tells me to copy and edit my xorg.config. When I go to copy, it tells me the directory doesn't exist, but it does. And when I go to edit the xorg.config, it tells me I don't have priveleges again.
So is there any easy way to get my video card installed, or do I really have to create this new kernel and go through this whole long process? My motherboard has hybrid crossfire technology, am I able to use that with debian?
Here is what I have in my comp, in case the info is needed.
Can anyone update me a little on the current styate of Radeon Drivers? I have a laptop with an RS690M video card on Slackware64 & Slamd64
There is 1. Kernel driver (drm/radeon.ko) but I am finding it difficult to find comments on it, except that it does some power management stuff 2. Proprietary fglrx had a recent significant update, and now talks to my card after a fashion (Experimental support) 3. OSS Radeonhd for X, which I gather is probably the worst atm but it's what I have in xorg.conf 4. OSS radeon driver, which is supposed to have more work done on it.
I don't need framebuffer stuff - the screen is hard enough for me to read as it is, but I do like to watch the occasional tv program or dvd and I'd like the video to be keeping up in full screen. ATM, Xvid, Opengl, and just about everything fails to, except sdl.
The last few weeks I have been dual monitoring from my lcd monitor to my hdtv. LCD was connected via vga and my tv via hdmi. To my knowledge, my pc has two graphic cards, both ATI Radeons. One I believe is on the mother board, ATI Radeon 4200HD series, and the other is in a PCI slot ATI Radeon 5600HD series. I think that when I had it dual monitored the tv was connected via 4200HD and LCD via 5600HD (could be wrong).
What I Did: Everything was working fine (i was mainly just using the HDTV as my only monitor and main monitor). As you can guess I was gaming on the hdtv, but I was not satisfied with the slight lag I felt. So I looked at forums to see what I could do and they mostly said 1) change settings on tv to game mode, 2) turn off vsync on your graphics card. So I did #1, but when I tried to do #2 I could not open my graphics cards "menu" aka CCC aka Catalyst Command Center.
So I read up on why this might happen and they said I should uninstall drivers and reinstall the drivers, so I did this as well (with most current drivers from the AMD site, version 10.9) and still I could not get into the CCC. As I was reading more forums, they were saying the 10.8 version mainly has this problem. So what I did was I downloaded 10.7 (did not install yet) and uninstalled the new 10.9. When I went to reboot the cpu after the uninstall of 10.9 there was no display on my HDTV.
I figured I just need to go back to my LCD which was still hooked up to my cpu. No display there as well. I tried dvi and vga hook ups from the monitor to both graphic cards but nothing worked to get me a display. I also tried my girlfriends monitor, which only has vga, to both graphics card and still nothing worked. So at this point I have NO display. After about an hour of trying different combinations of cords, monitors, plugs, tv's etc.,
I RANDOMLY somehow got a display with my girlfriends monitor vga to the 5600 card (I think). I had to hold the vga cord a certain way on attached to the monitor in order for the display to work. So since I had a display, I quickly installed 10.7. After installation, it did not prompt me to reboot (which I thought was weird) so I just went to properties and tried to change the resolution to the max 1600x something, to see how it looks. The screen went blank and the display never reappeared. Now I basically have NO DISPLAY again.
I'm trying to span my desktop across my 2 displays. I tried to edit xorg.conf-vesa to no avail.
Here is xrandr:
bash-3.1$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1600 HDMI-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 287mm 1920x1080 60.0*+ 1680x1050 59.9
I have attached a portion of xorg.conf-vesa and xrandr --verbose.
I need some help installing the driver. I am very noob. so when I try to build a deb file with sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing
# sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing Created directory fglrx-install.7aYYig Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing ATI Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver-
i just migrated from fedora to debian, and i already love this system. it only seems that i am facing a serious problem with this graphic card.running on debian 8.3.booting my system, i do get this message:
[8.167619] [drm:radeon_pci_probe] *ERROR* radeon kernel modesettingfor r600 or later requires firmware-linux-nonfree.
after that the system seems to run normally except of the fact that it doesn't look well and i cannot set the appropriate resolution for my monitor.
lspci -nn | grep VGA output: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Barts PRO [Radeon HD 6850] [1002:6739]
already tried both, the open source and the proprietary drivers, and both cause serious problems.
i tried to install the proprietary driver following these instructions: URL...
after restarting the system i get a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left corner, and that's it.
then tried to install the open source driver following these instructions:URL...
but after restarting the system my monitor goes into some sort of a "sleep monitor mode", and that's it.in both cases i wasn't able to boot the system through the recovery mode, so i didn't know what else to do and re-installed the whole system each and every time i tried a driver.let's say i have installed the system like 5 times in the past 12 hours.
I've recently managed to install 11.4 with both Gnome 2.32 and KDE 4.6, moving from 11.3. However, there seems to be a significant speed degradation in terms of opening applications, switching windows, clicking on links etc. I have installed the Radeon graphics drivers from YaST, without much success. IMHO, Gnome seems slightly faster than KDE; however, it's still not great.
My machine worked well with 11.3 and seemed to be going pretty well; however, I wanted new and shiny, so. The PC has an AMD dual-core chip (can't remember the exact spec). Alternatively, is there good benchmarking software I could try to see if I can get an idea of my real speed?
I have been having lots of trouble getting my system up and running after I installed a Radeon HD 5850 on my suse machine. I did as they told by uninstalling the previous drivers and installing the new ones as stated in ATI Catalystâ„¢ 10.2 Linux Installer Note.
This was all done from a terminal... And I did this for Suse distributions 11.1 and 11.2. Both times my mouse cursor disappeared, but this could easily be fixed by adding the option "SWCursor" "on" option under the Device section.
This was only part of the solution as I still have incredible lag on my windows e.g. when I scroll down a web page it takes incredibaly long to render and you can see it rendering the page in steps from the bottom up. As well as when I drag a window across my desktop it lags behind and you can se it reforming at the new position.
Finally I tried different releases of the proprietary driver. I tried 10.1 and this did not give me the mouse cursor issue, but the window lag still prevails. These are my xorg.conf and xorg.0.log files for my current setup. Opensuse 11.1 and proprietary driver version 10.1. I have an Radeon HD 5850 card.[URL]..
I should add that I am on a private network, and only have the oss, non-oss and packman repositories available. (Is it possible to add the AMD driver repository? Because I have trid and the firewall refuses connection.)
