I have been trying to install the FGLRX driver for a Radeon HD 4850. According to this page and others on the web, it says that Xorg 7.5 isn't supported by the driver. I was just wondering is it possible to install Xorg 7.4 on Fedora 12, if not what release of Fedora should I use (i.e does Fedora 11 support Xorg 7.4?)
I realize that Canonical is not responsible for the Catalyst driver, but I can't seem to operate outside of the Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode for 64 bit Natty, and I was curius if anyone else had encountered or resolved this.
When I upgraded from 10.10 (I was using the fglrx package), xorg would immediately crash. I was able to reach the gdm screen only using recovery mode. I uninstalled the fglrx package, and now I can boot into Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode only (no other desktop will work) using the open-source driver at no greater than 1280x1024.
When I try to re-install the catalyst driver using aptitude or Administration->Additional Drivers, the installation fails:
(jockey.log: WARNING: modinfo for module fglrx failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module fglrx)
Similarly, package generation from the AMD page fails:
I'm using openSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4. My graphics card is an Asus EAH 5450 with an ATI radeon HD 5450 GPU. I'm using the opensource radeon driver. When I open sysinfo:/ in Konqueror, I see the following info:
Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc Model: 2D driver: radeon 3D driver: swrast (No 3D Acceleration) (7.8.2))
How do I switch on 3d acceleration without installing the proprietary driver from ATI/AMD? I know this must be possible because on another computer, I have also openSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 and an ATI radeon HD 4350 installed and it has 3d enabled directly after installation of openSuse with the opensource radeon driver.
since i installed nvidia proprietary driver on opensuse 11.3 my boot-image is gone. This is not really in issue but i would like to have it back. is there a way to get it back or a bootimage howto or something?
Card is the Radeon x300 and in the past in a wubi install I installed the propreitary ATI driver. I'd like to do that with this installation too. I've located the proper driver and tried to run in the terminal.
I get this error:
I've read were I have to uninstall the xorg drivers and make a .deb package but idk how to do that.
I have ATI Radeon HD 5650 (code name Redwood) on Ubuntu 11.04. And I have been experimenting with open-source and proprietary driver.
The problem with proprietary driver is bad 2D rendering when watching movies in VLC (and any other), because if vsync is off, video is tearing and when its on, the video seems to stutter (the background moves in steps, not smooth). I have tried open-source radeon driver and its far better, but that driver doesn't have 3D acceleration for playing games. I was trying to play Hive Rise, and with proprietary driver works great, but with open-source the game starts, but i don't see the interface (start game, options, etc.).
It seems that Mesa 7.10 (in Natty) doesn't have 3D support for this card, but Mesa 7.11 (in Oneiric) will have that. Is that correct? I just want to have good 2D performance with ability to play games.
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 just replaced my older monitor with a slightly newer, much nicer Dell 1905FP. I need to have it rotated, but I have no clue how to rotate it. I have seen several xorg.conf modifications that are supposed to work for some of the nvidia drivers, but nothing for the generic radeon driver. The radio buttons in SaX2 are grayed out as well. How do I set up X11 to rotate my display? Preferably without installing the other ATi driver, as I have tried before to switch to that one, and have been unsucessfull.
I try to connect my graphic card with my TV. I have ATI Radeon 4850 card with 7 pins S-video output and I want to connect it my TV using s-video to RCA cable (the RCA output is yelow, red and white, I assume the 7 pins has audio signal as well).
My card doesn't have problem when connect it wit my monitor via DVI, but the S-video out is not detected. How can I enable it? Can I configure the card from KDE? If so, how?
I'm using the driver from Slackware package and I'm using Slackware 13 stable 64.
I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition (based on Debian Testing). I have installed an ATI Radeon 4850 w/ 1GB RAM. I am using FGLRX, and Catalyst Control Center seems to be working. However, even though I have selected "Override Application Settings" in CCC, I get no AA whether it be during gaming (Urban Terror) or in Compiz (3D Cube).
I'm having a teensy problem with installing something. About time, too, everything was going so smoothly. Anyway, I'm trying to install the ATI Proprietary Linux Drivers so this new video card (well, I say "new" though it's actually a rather old card, a Radeon x300, but still better than my embedded gpu) that I have will be stable whenever I play some games, and I get one particular problem I'm having trouble getting around..
I really don't know how to fix this. Completely clueless, in fact, except for maybe reinstalling XFree86 or changing the PATH env variable to something else, but I don't know what to change it to. Hm...
I've just installed Debian and then installed the ATI driver to correct the resolution and to hopefully give me better performance, it seemed to give the opposite effect and has made my computer painfully slow and choppy.
There is one thing missing (I think) a clear guide to clearing out Nvidia and replacing it with nouveau. For all but hardened gamers, nouveau on 11.4 delivers. It also removes one more barrier to what I think is the intended goad of Tumbleweed.The problem IMHO is not that there are no clear guides. The problem is there are too many. No sooner does one person do a guide (that is clear) and someone else who does not like some point writes another guide that they think is more clear (but in fact is less clear in other aspects). And this goes on ad infinitum.IMHO we have too many guides - many of which are sufficient clear ... but the VAST number only serves to confuse users more.
Having typed that, IMHO this is NOT a Tumbleweed specific issue, but its MUCH WIDER in scope and hence does not belong as a discussion in this Tumbleweed thread.
I'm new to linux, and i have installed linux slackware 64bit..after a complete setup i downloaded the latest Nvidia proprietary drivers, the binary package from nvidia.com..i have a geforce gts250..it's the first time i encounter this issue..i have already installed the driver with my old monitor (an lg flatron with max 1680x1050)and it always worked fine..with this new monitor (lg w2243s with a res of 1920x1080) it seems that every bin package from nvidia don't recognize the monitor...after installing i find a res of 640x480 and i get stucked, i tried to force it by editing the xorg.conf file..but nothing changes..how can i get the max res with nvidia bin package?
I would like to get better 3D performance, so I decided to try the proprietary ATI driver. The Arch Wiki page about it (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst) isn't very helpful, I don't really understand it. It mentions different packages and something about some kernel modules, with no explanation at all about what they do and very poor instructions on how to use them.
I just tried installing "catalyst-daemon" from the AUR, but it just gives me a blank screen when I start X. Nothing happens when I try to use Ctrl+Alt+F2, and nothing happens when I try to blindly log in and enter "shutdown -r now" (I ended up pressing the Reset button). I uninstalled it (everything still worked fine as long as you don't start X), and now everything's back to normal.
I've been on numerous websites--with tutorials telling how to install the ATI drivers, I'm running Squeeze 6.0.1 Gnome amd64, the tutorial I am using is located at the ATIProprietary Debian Wiki [URL] when I try the following: sudo apt-get install fakeroot debhelper build-essential libstdc++5
I get this: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package fakeroot is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.
Package debhelper is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'fakeroot' has no installation candidate E: Package 'debhelper' has no installation candidate E: Unable to locate package build-essentials E: Unable to locate package libstdc++5 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libstdc++5'
I have a feeling that apt-get is not searching the web, yet searching a CD perhaps? Because when I've tried the apt-get update, I get the following: Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54] squeeze Release.gpg Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54' in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press enter
After doing that, nothing happens, and my apt-get still doesn't work, everything I try and install like build-essential says it's not found. Also when I su nano /ect/apt/sources.lst the list in nano is empty???
I'm currently running a dual boot with windows xp/debian but as soon as I can get everything working, I'm going to turn this into a full linux system. Also my sound doesn't work, but my sound is HD sound that goes via the video card, I have it hooked up HDMI to my LG tv/monitor, sound works fine on xp. I think once I get the video card drivers installed it should possibly fix my sound issues at the same time.
I have acer laptop with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics card. I have downloaded ATI Radeon 5xxx driver from ati official site. When I ran it using the command below, it gives me the following error
I've been running OpenSuSE 11.2 for some time now; my system is a Dell 64-bit with an ATI 46xx graphics card and I've used the proprietary ATI driver without difficulty, as the driver provided with OpenSuSE was pretty much unusable. I'm considering upgrading to v11.3, but there seem to be scattered horror stories involving ATI cards, particularly when it comes to ATI's proprietary driver.
I installed ATI 10.7 driver successfully but its not up to my expectations, e.g VLC not working right (video stutters, etc). And I want to revert back to the default radeon which was a lot better until the ATI 10.8 driver comes out.
By the way, what is this in my /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install? code...
I have a machine with an ATI Radeon 7000/VE graphic card and I can not get the screen resolution I need. This is running on redhat enterprise 4 OS (32bit). My monitor is a 1600x1280 but I can not get anything better than 1024x768. I did set the desired resolution in the xorg file. I guess this would rather be a driver issue? I am running with radeon driver at the moment. I tried to get the fglrx from ATI but they do not seem to give any linux support for this card.
The screen goes black while "waiting to populate /dev/"and only by adding acpi=off can I boot into my system, and then I see that I get an error message during boot when "populating /dev/ " that says"fatal error during GPU init", even after I've installed the firmware-linux-nonfree.deb, which is the one for the R300 family, which I'm guessing is the right one, since lspci tells me I have:Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350MI've read the wiki[URL]
I`m using a N5010 dell laptop with an Ati Radeon mobility 5650, I tried to install the ati drivers on F14 which caused a black login screen and there is no way to open the console and do anything. On top of that I`m using Ubuntus Grub2 so I`m practically stuck.
i have an asus radeon x1650xt vga, i can use the latest radeon driver in ubuntu 10.04 and also in the newest fedora but in slackware 13.1 i get the same black screen i used to get with older ubuntu, fedora and other distros. i can only use slackware with the vesa driver, what could be the problem...here is my /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I've given it the old college try for a couple years, starting with openSUSE 11.1 without success. I'm up to 11.4 now with no change or relief. My openSUSE box with NVIDIA proprietary driver and the default refresh settings of 80KHz/75Hz, has an annoying beat frequency with... something, somewhere, causing an annoying ghostly flicker on my trusty 1280x1024 LCD display. I can run both openSUSE and Windows XP on this hardware and they both have the same annoying flicker at those settings. However, in Windows XP, all I have to do is select a 70Hz refresh, resulting in settings of 74.6KHz/70 Hz, and the annoying flicker is cured... for Windows only, of course. I have tried to change these settings in openSUSE to no affect. In 11.4, I find that the advice is to create modelines using CVT and edit xorg.conf, but despite rigid adherence to instructions, there's no change. The monitor continues to see refresh settings of 80KHz/75Hz and the annoying flicker persists.
I hate to rag on openSUSE since it does so many things well, but there's a number of adjustments I'd like to make, especially the vertical refresh, that simply won't change, even when following documented or testamented procedures. Concentrating on the vertical refresh for now, is there anything that really works?
