Hardware :: ATI CrossFireX With Two Radeon HD 3650 Cards?

Aug 20, 2010

For some time, almost since it came out, I've been using a single Radeon HD 3650 with two (dissimilar) monitors. It's fine and works well with fglrx and openSUSE. ( Although now that I come to think of it, openSUSE 11.3 does only have preview support in my current fglrx. ) I now have a second, identical card. My hardware is:

Video cards: 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 3650
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 1.0
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black


My video card did come, if I remember rightly, with a crossfire bridge but that has been thrown away (not by me). However the motherboard specifications do include support for CrossFireX. I've tried, although with very little understanding of how, to use aticonfig to set up my cards for crossfire. As it stands crossfire is not enabled and aticonfig claims that it does not support this platform:


# aticonfig --cfa --adapter=all --crossfire=on
CrossFire chain added
Warning: X needs to be restarted before CrossFire changes take effect.
CrossFire chain(s) enabled


Is it possible to get this working?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD 3650 - 3D?

Feb 2, 2009

I am running openSUSE 11.0 on a Toshiba laptop with the ATI Radeon HD3650 graphic card. After installing the ATI drivers using the "1-click-install" feature found in the suse wiki, the 3D acceleration seems to be working... sort of.


I haven't tried to launch Compiz. However when I try the OpenGL screensavers, they run fine in the preview but when I test them, they only show in what seems a 640*480 portion of the screen in the top left corner. The rest of my 1200*800 screen is blank.

OpenSUSE Install :: ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP Boot?

Feb 20, 2011

I have installed OpenSuse 11.3 . System doesn't boot in NORMAL mode, system boots only in Fail-safe mode. In NORMAL mode i have kernel panic (may be i am wrong, but Caps Lock + Scroll Lock are blinking synchronously during NORMAL boot). ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP figured on thread Subject because i am sure that the problem is in this video card. 2 weeks ago i have installed ATI Proprietary driver for this card and system successfully boot in NORMAL mode without any kernel panic. You may ask me, "What the problem, install this driver again and have fun!". The problem is that when I install this driver and boot in NORMAL mode video sub system works very slowly. For example one mouse scroll in Internet browser takes 2 seconds to redraw the window. It is not only browser window problem. It refers to all windows. I even can see the wave from up to down on the screen when any window redraws. Very poor performance of 2D video. So , installation of this driver is not the solution.

In the Fail-safe mode 2D video performance is not so cool as at Windows XP but is much more better than in NORMAL boot with proprietary driver installed. Now I have clean installation of system without any drivers installed over distributive. now system configuration:

1. Motherboard: Intel 845D(has on board AC'97 sound, but this sound is disabled in BIOS currently)

2. CPU:Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz.

3. Main memory: 1,5 GB DDR 266MHz.

4. Video card: PowerColor ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP (512 MB, 64 bit).

5. Sound card: CMI8738.

Fedora Hardware :: Power Management On An ATI Radeon HD 3650?

Jun 1, 2011

I'm trying to enable power management on my ATI Radeon HD 3650 video card (GPU: ATI RV635; see my Smolt profile). I'm using the open-source radeon driver (xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.14.1-1.20110504gita6d2dba6.fc15).I've followed the instructions found on the Arch Linux Wiki.In order to verify if power management really works, I've tried to enable the "low" power profile through these commands:


echo profile > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_method
echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile

I've also added the above-mentioned commands to /etc/rc.local to have them executed at startup.Although this page on the X.Org Wiki says that power management on my video card is supported by the radeon driver, GPU clock frequency doesn't seem to decrease: cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/radeon_pm_info reports


$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/radeon_pm_info
default engine clock: 725000 kHz
current engine clock: 722250 kHz
default memory clock: 500000 kHz


Also, enabling dynamic frequency switching through


echo dynpm > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_method

seems to have no effect. how to actually enable power management on my GPU?

OpenSUSE Install :: ATI Radeon 3650 Can Not Boot (into LiveCD)

May 14, 2011

I can not porpperly boot into live CD. I get the option menu in beginning and when i select the liveCD option it starts loading the kernel and then screen gets garbled. full of very small dots. Its liek the graphics card is not recognised propperly. I've read about similar issue here: ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP boot problem

but as i see the user's specific problem in taht thread was caused by having an AGP card and on an older version. however my card is PCI. it should boot normally. i haven't tried nomodeset parameter mentioned in that thread, but the card shouldn't need it anyway.

Ubuntu :: ATI Mobility Radeon Hd 3650 Graphics Card Is Not Supported - Compiz

Nov 8, 2010

I'm having problems with my graphics. I have ATI mobility radeon hd 3650 and I get an issue with desktop effects. They can't be enabled even though the card is supported. I had some trouble with installation and used this thread's instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9133906. I finally seem to have it installed and configured but I still can't use desktop effects. Also this whole process started because I couldn't get minecraft working getting the GLX13 error.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon - 2 Cards And 3 Monitors (Xinerama)

May 21, 2010

After working on trying to get my 3 monitors to work with Ubuntu 10.4 and my ATI Radeon HD3200 (IGP) and HD4850 cards, I just had to share the xorg.conf. I am using the default open source drivers that came with 10.4 and I kept KMS enabled (it wouldn't work without it).

Here is my conf:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XOrg (Opensource) Drivers For ATI Radeon Cards?

Jan 4, 2010

For those of us who were stung last year by ATI's decision to drop support for <= R500 series cards from their closed source, or proprietary driver (known as the FGLRX driver), we are now forced to use the opensource ATI XORG driver. This is not as bad as it sounds, as in doing so, ATI has released a lot of the hardware specs on these older cards and the opensource driver has improved dramatically in the last year as a result.

Ubuntu includes both the ATI and the FGLRX driver install capacities in recent releases (since Intrepid(?)). If one can install the FGLRX driver, you should be able to do this by choosing System>Administration>Hardware Drivers and choosing to activate the ATI drivers; or you can manually install them using this guide: [URL]

However, if you have a card that is or below the R500 series (i.e. not R600+) DO NOT install the FGLRX drivers - you will break your X server (video display). If you don't know what series chipset you have, try the following:

$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 PCI Express Root Port (rev 0c)


If you're like me and need a production machine, but just want updated drivers, try this link: [URL]

To add the PPA (Guide): [URL]

These are fairly easy to remove (as described on the site); just remove the PPA from your Software Sources and downgrade the drivers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 And 2 ATI Radeon 4870 Cards - Only One Adapter Will Show At A Time

Jun 11, 2010

I am trying to dual boot into Ubuntu and thus far everything works great on my machine. There is one HUGE issue.

I am running 2 Radeon 4870 Cards. Only one adapter will show at a time. I am used to Having 4 monitors and the max amount of Monitors it will allow me to have are two.

It does recognise the Second Adapter when I go into the Catalyst Control (it shows the option for Cross Firing) and it shows both adapters when I do:


I have tried:


The closest I had was that my main two monitors showed the splash page when the other two monitors on the other adapter were displayed. So It did switch once... But I have yet get all four monitors to work.

Hardware :: Printing Via Network Using The HP DeskJet 3650 Fails?

Jan 8, 2010

I can't print via our network printer (HP DeskJet 3650) which is connected to a WinXP PC on the network. My laptop is wireless connected to the network. My distribution is openSUSE 11.2 and I tried setting up the network printer via CUPS:

Went to http://localhost:631
Add Printer
Device: Windows Printing via SAMBA
Device URI: smb://UMBRELLA/SMOKE/HP3600
Make: HP
Model: HP DeskJet 3650, hpcups 3.9.8 (en)
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.

Then clicked the "Print Test Page" button. At this point the printer actually starts making sounds.. the same sounds it makes when it's preparing to print something. But then, it stops. The printing job is still present in the printer queue at the WinXP PC, but it won't print.

So I looked at this documentation: [URL]

Step 2 from this documentation tells me to install a PPD file.. which I can't find anywhere. It's not on the original HP driver CD, neither can it be downloaded from this page: http://www.openprinting.org/show_pri...P-DeskJet_3650.

Also, I believe I have everything installed:

serrano@saibot:/usr/share/cups/model/HP> rpm -qa hplip hplip-hpijs foomatic-filters

Fedora Hardware :: Replacing Radeon 9550 With Radeon X1300/X1550 - Low FPS

Apr 4, 2010

I replaced an ATI Radeon 9550 with a Radeon X1300/X1550, in hopes of better performance.

My System: P4@3GHz, 1.5Gb RAM, Fedora 12, kernel

Faults: Screen refresh is extremely low. Glxgears outputs 25 FPS. Dragging windows around is sometimes really slow.

What I did so far, in hope of fixing it:

1. Installed 'system-config-display', for providing an xorg.conf
2. Did: yum --enablerepo=rawhide update mesa-dri-drivers-experimental mesa*, fixing this, but to no avail...

I cannot find any errors in the log...I don't know what to do...

I am posting my Xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log and Glxinfo through links to pastebin.com


When running GlxGears, I get a bit of motion, and then the gears freeze for 1 second. And this goes on and on. But...if I move the mouse around, I get 1100FPS!

Now I messed a bit with xorg.conf and the "SWCursor" Option, but the above happens when this option is on "true". On "false" there is no 1100FPS, only the freezing loop...

Ubuntu :: Freezes Due To TWO RAM CARDS?

May 18, 2010

I am new here, and clueless as to what im doing. Soo.. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 i386. It took me forever to install because it would hang up (Mouse lock and light go off, keyboard lock, screen lock) every time i got to the graphical part of the installer, so i used the alternate installer. After installing correctly, it would still lock up within 3 minutes of login. Now that ive removed one stick (512) of ram, there are no more problems.

Here is my comp config:

Installer: ubuntu-10.04-alternate-i386
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Motherboard: Albatron K8T800
Ram: 1 gig Corsair ram(2 x 512) **Note, I removed one to get the comp to work, so its actually 512 now.
Video: Nvidia Geforce 6800gt

Both sticks of ram are the same so it is not because of mix and matching ram.

Ubuntu :: Use Only One Of Two Graphics Cards?

May 9, 2011

My situation is like so: I have two NVIDIA GTX 460 graphics cards running the latest (260.19.06) proprietary drivers. I SLI these together under Windows 7 for gaming. However, for day to day usage I have Ubuntu 10.1 running on my two monitors using twinview.

My problem is that the xserver refuses to load (I get the "screens found, but none have a usable configuration" error) when both my graphics cards are plugged in and powered; if I remove the power to one, the system works fine. If I was just using Ubuntu, I would simply leave one unplugged but, because I'm not, its a pain to have to plug/unplug one every time I want to switch operating system.

I have tried every modification to the xorg.conf file that I can think of and a few more found in the documentation and via google, all to no avail. I have also tried everything again with twinview disabled and only one monitor plugged in.

I am aware that SLI isn't compatible with twinview, I don't really need to use it, although it would, of course, be nice.

Ubuntu Networking :: Using 4 NIC Cards?

Jul 13, 2011

I am setting up a class using a vmWare ESX server. Because of security proceedures, the students are not allowed to connect directly to the internet. Because of file space, the are severated on 3 servers. I am trying to set up a server that connects to the internet and all 3 subnets that the students are on.

I have configure 4 virtual NICs 1 with DHCP connected to the internet. The other 3 goes to each student network. I can get 2 working at a time. 1 using the DHCP and 1 of the other networks. It seems to be order dependent. On the main server I can ping the local address. When I ping the students systems, I can reach 1 but not the other 2. I get a host unreachable message.

Is there a limitation to 2 NICS. If not, is there any magic incantation to run the 4 nics?

Fedora :: F14 And Xinerama With Both NVidia And ATI Cards?

Mar 16, 2011

I've got a Dell Xeon with two video cards - an nVidia Quadro2 MXR/EX/Go and an ATI Radeon 7000/VE. Under Fedora 10 Xinerama worked just fine, but I recently upgraded to F14 and Xinerama no longer works.The X server tries repeatedly to start but fails, with gdm-binary eventually giving up in disgust. If I comment out the ''Option "Xinerama" "On"' line it starts up (see attached xorg.conf), albeit with a few quirks. I have two X screens (:0.0 and :0.1 - one for each monitor), where :0.0 works just fine but :0.1 has no window manager - I can bring up windows on it but they have no window border ( no min/max/close buttons, can't be resized, etc). The mouse moves freely from one monitor to the other, but windows don't.The error messages I get when I try to use Xinerama are as follows. In /var/log/messages I get:

Mar 10 10:32:41 valdez kernel: [60328.892005] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Allocating FIFO number 1
