Hardware :: Doesn't Support The Video Card ATI Radeon HD4670 Driver
Jul 22, 2010
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.
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 have an ATI Radeon HD4670 graphics card. I am trying to run OpenCL on it, so I installed the ati driver 11.4, and the AMD app sdk 2.4, and then rebooted. Now, when I try to run one of the samples, it says this error message: GPU not found. Falling back to CPU device I obviously have a GPU, as I have used it before with version 2.3 of the ati stream sdk. How can I make it recognize my GPU?
I'm trying to find out when QME2572 (Qlogic) card became support by the kernel. We have a RHEL 5.1 system that is moving to new hardware, however the kernel at this release doesn't support the new hardware, due to the Qlogic card change. I tired the Redhat KB and Bugzilla. Is there a Kernel change list etc I can search. Never really played around with the kernel too much so I'm just after some pointers for looking up this information. Offically its not supported until Redhat 5.3, I'm trying trying to research kernel info so I can tell the customer they have to upgrade.
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).
With Karmic there's some support for the ati radeon 7000 ve, but it's the default driver with limited or no 3d function. Previous distros supported radeon 7000 ve. Is it likely to expect that Lucid will not support this video card.
I'm an owner of a ATI mobility radeon X1300 card. Since ATI tagged my card as legacy, i'm stuck with the open source radeon drivers. Wich doesn't bother me, as i know they are slower and openGL support doesn't equal fglrx. What does bother me is that the current version 7.9 dev. claims to have full opengl support up to 2.1. I'm trying to use a extention that is part of the openGL version 1.3 and it's failing. This is a known issue for a long time now and it really disappoints me. "Compressed textures" is what i'm talking about.
Is there any way to make sure that drivers aren't tagged with something they support if they obviously don't? I guess the KDE4 kwin vs drivers thing is the same as i'm trying to say now. Drivers should be documented with what they effectively support and not what they should support. What can I do to make this public to xorg developers? I could only think about posting this here as i have no idea where to put it elsewere. Could someone please point me in the right direction to where i should send this complaint?
I am thinking about buying a new computer. It has ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphics. Does Fedora 14 support ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphicst? Will I have to install a driver and if so where would I download the driver?
This is just to report that I've got 3D support successfully enabled on my Mobility Radeon HD3200 chip with the open source driver on openSUSE 11.2. I did this to replace the proprietary fglrx driver that has already been installed for quite some time on my system.
Uninstalled fglrx, and here we go... Basically what I did was to get the latest X.Org server (1.8) and Mesa from Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.2 I changed all the corresponding system packages to the versions in that repository. I noticed that I cannot get any 3D support when pairing the last X server with the updated openSUSE 11.2 kernel (184.108.40.206_0.2). With RadeonHD driver it gives me no acceleration at all (No DRI), perhaps it is still intentionally disabled to prevent lockups in r600 cards. With Radeon KDE wouldn't start.
So to get usable driver support I have to update the stock kernel to the one in Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.2 I installed the 2.6.34-rc5-22 kernel and reboot. Immediately I notice that KMS is working, but I could not get DRI to work, presumably caused by the drm being unable to locate two related firmware files (it is there in the kernel, just doesn't know why it is not being loaded). Other than that I do not know why I can't get any acceleration with KMS on. To workaround I passed the 'nomodeset' parameter to the kernel to run in UMS mode instead, and voila! with UMS 2D + 3D accelerations are working. I can enable kwin effects just fine.
Since this is a laptop I need suspend & resume and power management working. Good news is s2ram works perfectly with extra parameter. And all the new Radeon power management options: DynamicPM, ClockGating and ForceLowPowerMode can be enabled just fine! (For UMS you need to generate a xorg.conf and put those options in)Performance is good. So far it's faster than fglrx in some areas and slower in some other area. Now this is truly amazing!
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 have an Acer Aspire 5516 and have been running ubuntu for a while. I couldn't resist the upgrade notice to 10.04 so I did it. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to recognize my video card ATI Radeon X1200 and I have to boot in safe graphics mode. I can use my computer but the display is a bit off. I have tried to install the ATI driver but get the following:
ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2: x86_64:lib32::none:2.6.31-14-generic; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.eqUOxU
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 ?
