How do I get the s-video out to work. I have a Visiontek Xtasy Radeon 9250 128mb Pci Video Card and OpenSUSE 11.3. I attempted to install the ATI drivers and doesn't really seem to work at all... With the default install i get flickering and black and white output on my TV and it calls my tv "uknown monitor" in the video card settings. I had wanted to setup a spare computer to output multimedia to my TV in addition to being a home server....
I'm trying to install the driver for my ATI Radeon X1600 Series video card. I got the driver from the ATI site. Heres the link: [URL]... I'm using 10.04 LTS. I have attached a screenshot of the message I get when I run the installer.
I'm a new Mandriva user,and have no clue about Linux system,but to be honest I don't want to use Windows product anymore. So I got the Mandriva 1 Spring Gnome,and installed it on my DELL Optiplex Desktop,works fine and very fast,therefore I decided to do the same with my Studio XPS 1640,but after I got a dark screen,so I used an external display(My TV) then realized that it doesn't support the video card on it ( ATI Radeon HD4670 ),and I don't know what to do.
Is there a distro where an ATI 9250 video card will work out of the box? I am currently using Debian Lenny and the instructions for getting it to work are too much. I just want to get dual monitors working.
I'm new to Linux, been running Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop, love it. I set up a dual boot with XP on my desktop, but it's seemingly impossible to get my ATI Radeon 9250 working with any reasonable performance with later versions of Ubuntu (as several more experienced users have assured me).
Does anyone know of decently easy-to-use distributions that work out-of-the-box (or without dedicating more hours of work) with the Radeon 9250?
I've tried Ubuntu 9.10, 8.04, and OpenSUSe, latest version. No dice.
I have an Asus M4A78L-M motherboard that has integrated ATI Radeon HD3000 video. Should I be looking for a driver specific to the integrated video, or should I be looking for a driver specific to the motherboard? I'm not sure if I should look for something different if the video is integrated onto the motherboard, as opposed to a separate video card. This is what I found: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...5&lang=English
Are there best practices for updating video drivers before I make any changes? I don't want to hose my video.
I have installed a 9200 Radeon (the card says 9250 on it, but computer reads as 9200) on a AMD Sempron 2500+ 64 bit,Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome 2.30.2, Kernel Linux 2.6.32-26; Samsung VGA 941BW monitor.
A friend told me if I added more RAM (512mb), the card would run properly & the graphics would be stellar.
He also told me the drivers were installed.
When I did this & started the computer, before I got to my login, a box appeared, telling me my graphics were running in "Low Mode", & do I want to configure them. When I said "Yes", it told me to restart. When I did, nothing happened & the video card is still running on "low". I checked the fglrx info, and was told "command not found".
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP Desktop with an ATI Radeon 2600 pci card that has four outputs. I want to run the same 3-monitor array that I had in windows. Is it possible to get this thing running and configured right in Linux? At the moment I can only get it to send a signal to 2 monitors. I installed the drivers step by step from the manufacturer, but I can't seem to get a signal to all 3 monitors.
Using this video card but unable to find the setting for it in the options. I am using a generic VGA setting right now and it's getting less than optimum resolution. What's the proper setting for this card?
This is RedHat Enterprise edition. The machine is Dell OptiPlex 745 The monitor is Dell 2005FPW (Digital)
I am setting up a system that I was recently given and am having some problems with the ATI card configuration/driver (I think).
System is P4 3.0Ghz, 1GB RAM, 200GB SATA with new full install of Slackware 13, Fluxbox WM/DE.
Code: lspci lines:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] 01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] (Secondary) I have read a lot of things that seem confusing to me, but I have set it up mostly with info from slackwiki.org, and after reading various threads here at LQ.
I am using an xorg.conf created with Xorg -configure, with the radeon driver and have added the DRI section and enabled options per the above URL.
First, X starts and I can run glxgears and get a frame rate of 3100+.
But glxinfo seems incorrect:
Code: glxinfo |grep -i render GL_RENDERER: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL I see no "direct rendering: yes" as seems to be required (am I missing something?).
Most things seem to work such as video playback from DVD and Flash.
At boot the vesa modes do not work and I have to use vga=normal, which is no big problem, although a better framebuffer mode would be nice if possible.
But the first big problem I hit is running Blender. When it starts my screen goes blank with just the mouse cursor visible and moving. To get out of this I can kill X or ctl-alt-Fx to get a new login and kill the blender process. Oddly, I found I can also alt-F2 (Open a Run dialog in Fluxbox) which opens with a running Blender behind it - but any attempt to interact with the blender window reverts to the blank screen with mouse cursor.
I believe this to be due to the lack of DRI mostly because of a similar problem once encountered on another system - but am open to other suggestions.
But I think I need to better understand and configure the drivers for this video card before troubleshooting any applications.
So, I guess my questions would be:
1. Is the radeon driver the best choice for this card? 2. Are there advantages/disadvantages to using the ATI driver instead? (Is there a slackbuild for the proprietary driver?) 3. Can someone point me to any better sources of info for ATI cards/drivers used under Slackware?
I'm attempting to get Debian (Squeeze, latest net-install CD) working on a Power Mac G5 Quad with a Radeon X1900 Mac edition video card (PCI-Express.) The installer acted a bit weird right from the start, telling me that the step "Install the system" failed (with nothing in the way of useful error information,) but I got the base system installed at least. It booted fine to framebuffer console, so I set about installing GNOME on it. apt finished with nary a complaint, but when I rebooted, I found that when it's ready to launch into X, it chokes up and just sits there with a blank screen and a cursor. (Weirdly, though, the screen itself flickers on and off at a high rate, faster than the actual cursor blink.)
Framebuffer console still works, at least, so I was able to boot into single-user mode and do some investigating in my own limited capacity for this stuff (by which I mean "Google error messages and see what specifics are requested.") lspci -k shows the video card properly with the manufacturer and product name, so it is recognizing it, at least. When I try Xorg -configure, though (Xorg 1.7.7, it says,) it aborts with a "No DRICreatePCIBusID symbol" message. Checking dmesg gives me a "process Xorg mapped non-existing PCI legacy memory" message, followed by an "invalid ROM contents" message underneath.
I'm not sure what all to make of this. I've found a thread about problems getting the same basic setup (G5 Quad, X1900, Debian) to work, but it's a couple years old and the symptoms are different. There's some discussion there about the radeon/radeonhd driver looking for Atom BIOS information on non-Atom BIOS cards, which would explain the "invalid ROM contents" message, but on the other hand, if lspci recognizes the card properly, would that be the problem? I don't know. Obviously it's playing nicely enough to run framebuffer console output properly, but beyond that I have no idea. I'd really like to get this working - it'd really improve things over the GeForce 6600 it came with...
I recently bought 1GB video card of 'xfx radeon hd 5450'. It came with cd for drivers of windows. I installed fglrx. Still in ubuntu 10.10 (lucid) I ran: lspci -v | grep -i prefetchable which shows 256M which is video memory of my ASUS motherboard.
I have a fresh install of suse 11.0 and there is no 3d acceleration available. If I use the suse repository, which driver do I need to enable 3d accesleration? The video is integrated on the motherboard. The box is an hp pavilion a1130n and amd 3500+ processor. I installed the same suse 11.0 on a dell box with an ati 128 rage and 3d was enabled after the install.
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.
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 recently bought a HIS HD 4670 IceQ card but can't get it to work in openSUSE 11.2 Under Windows the card works fine, so I assume there is no hardware problem. I tried this card in two computers with different mainboards, but it does not work. Several times I reinstalled openSUSE completely from scratch (tried both 32bit and 64bit versions) but no luck. The problem: Right after the installation it uses the radeonhd driver. This basically works, but without 3D (no Tuxracer...) and even 2D is slow (dragging around windows on the desktop is slow, page scrolling in firefox also).
Then I tried to install the ati proprietary driver, both from rpm (the rpm's from the "official" ati repository have a checksum error, as already mentioned in another thread!), and by downloading the driver from AMD and running the install script. The install script seems to work successfully. The kernel module is compiled and loaded. "aticonfig --initial" makes a rudimentary xorg.conf. But then, when starting X, it does not work:
- on one of the 2 tested systems, even kdm does not start, the screen simply stays black with a frozen cursor top left, even CTRL+ALT+backspace doesn't do anything - on the other system, kdm starts and shows the login screen, but when trying to start KDE kwin crashes, and the windows have no title bar (when I googled for this symptome I found lots of people also having this problem...) - trying to configure the system using sax2 didn't help, even sax2 doesn't display properly I have now spent 4 days trying to get this to work and now I'm really tired of those buggy graphics drivers, be it proprietary or open source...
Can anyone recommend me a graphics card that is approximately as powerful as the radeon 4670 (I bought this card because it is said to be the most economical card (both in price and energy consumption) that allows to play Anno 1404 reasonably well on windows), but is known to work in openSUSE 11.2, even in 3D mode (tuxracer...)?
If I take out the existing video card and put in another one of a different type (but not a different brand), how does Ubuntu behave? I know what Windows typically does. Windows starts up the screen using a default video driver which is at least 1024 by 768 and then asks you what this new bit of hardware is and asks where the drivers are. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has default drivers of its own, but I don't know what their resolution is.
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?
Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.
I have ATI graphic card with HDMI video and Audio:
I see that I have HDMI connector and S/PDIF connector on the mortherboard, I just have HDMI connector on the monitor, I have no problem with the video but the audio does not work, I just want to confirm that the audio should also go throught the HDMI cable right ?
After a bit of work I got 3d acceleration (direct rendering) working on my system. Now, whenever I use intensive graphics, (certain screen savers, Google Earth overlay animations) all performs fine for a while (1-2 minutes) and then causes a full system freeze. Only solution at that point is a hard power reboot. I don't know where to look for a solution, since I can not check any diagnostic files when the system is frozen.
System: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz ATI FireGL V3100 graphics Card OpenSuse 11.4 with radeon driver.
Am trying to install the correct driver for my RV710 Radeon HD4350 grahics card.which version out of these two I should install: * x11-video-fglrxG02 (for HD2000 series and later) * x11-video-fglrxG01 (for Radeon 9500 - X1900)
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).
I'm having some trouble on the search for the correct driver to my video card, an Intel Chipset. In the HP site, I can only find the driver in the windows format, and I can't find any other proper linux file on the Intel or Nvidia webpages, althougth I know they provide it. how to download the correct file?
The properties from my video card and the webpages I said are below.

I been searching for months on how to get the s-video to work on my pci VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500] card. I found a site with instructions.
This is how I got it to work.
I install Debian 5.0 Lenny Desktop
added the Driver "radeon" to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
This work and I was able to use my tv as a monitor however when I try to play a video file from totem or vlc all I could get was audio with no video; These files work and played fine in the CRT monitor.
