Slackware :: Ati Radeon Drivers - Everything Freezes Or It's Just Dead Slow

Nov 5, 2010

My Nvidia card broke down recently, I replaced it with Ati Radeon 2600HD Pro.

Now I have no compositing, everything freezes or it's just dead slow.

As for now I'm using fglrx drivers, but I've tried xorg drivers before, without success either.

Ubuntu :: Slow Frame Rate With Radeon HD 6450 And Proprietary Drivers Under Natty 11.04?

May 3, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10. I have a Radeon 6450 with 1GB of video RAM which should give me pretty good performance, but I'm only getting a measly 60 fps with the new ATI diver (11.4). I installed like this, making sure I'd removed the open source driver:sh ati-driver-installer-11-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/nattyThen installed the debs and ran an aticonfig --initial. The module builds and installs fine:tnugent@translocon:~$ fglrxinfo display: :0.0 screen: 0OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6450OpenGL version string: 4.1.10666 Compatibility Profile ContextBut this is not good:

tnugent@translocon:~$ fgl_glxgears

274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 54.800 FPS

Slackware :: Slow Graphics With 13.37 And Radeon Mobility X1600

May 4, 2011

I've upgraded (reinstalled) from Slackware 13.1 to 13.37 on an old iMac and have problems with slow graphics.
lspci says this about the graphics card:

Code:

With Slackware 13.1 I had no KMS enabled and graphics speed was okay. It wasn't very good, but okay for everyday work. Now with 13.37 it's extremely slow. glxgears runs with only around 38 fps, no matter what I do. And every now and then when logging off, I get a black screen and no new kdm-login. But I can ssh into that machine and restart X by issuing 'init 3;init 4'.

KMS is enabled (I've also tried disabling it, but then KDE crashes right after logging in) and it's a fresh installation of 13.37 with a 2.6.37.6 kernel.

What can I do?

I have to admin I don't know this video and X stuff very well and I used to have machines with NVIDIA cards.

If there's anything else than the usual Xorg.0.log needed.

To me the log doesn't look like there's any problem whatsoever:

Ubuntu :: Firefox Dead Slow On Formum But Not Most Elsewhere?

Jul 11, 2011

ubuntu 10.10 Firefox 3.6.18 I have been running ubuntu 10.10 since it came out and this problem just started for me in the last couple of weeks and seems to be growing worse.

Firefox was still stalled after 2 minutes of waiting to create this Post. The way I finally got here was to hit the manual refresh. Clicking on the URL Line and hitting Enter didn't help. I have noticed this happens on a few other sites, as well, but for the rest of them, Firefox seems fast. Chromium jumps onto the UbuntuForum bang fast.

I applied the fix I found at [URL]..It didn't appear to help. However just now, when I clicked the bookmark of that URL to get the URL to paste here, it loaded darn fast, whereas last time I waited 3 to 4 minutes for it. Does anyone know what is happening and how to fix this for all sites, especially UbuntuForum?

General :: Ubuntu Karmic Is Dead Slow And Hangin ,stucking ,fadin Into Grey While Transfer?

Feb 9, 2010

I came to know about this bug or something in Ubuntu only in karmic version which slows down file transfer I've used ubuntu from version 8.10 and having considerable speeds like 3-4Mbps sometimes 2.5 to 2. Even though very less its seems okay for me transfering a big 5G file or a movie to external Hdd without stucking and allowing me to do other work. Now in karmic the transfer rate is of no change but its stucks ,fades into grey and hangs . It's not allowing me to do any other work like browsing and it stucks in mouse cliks and movements. I never noticed this kind of behavior in Jaunty ,Intrepid even though transfer rate is less.

It really took me more than 30 min to transfer 4.5GB iso image to external WD 40GB HDD . Its so odd and frustrating . Many people to whom i've introduced Linux and Ubuntu specially were complaining and some already went back to vista and xp.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE Very Slow Redraw On Radeon

Nov 29, 2010

redrawing windows in KDE is very, very sow (since 4.4 or so I guess, but maybe it was always like this). When I switch to a desktop running Kopete and Amarok, it takes like 2-3 seconds to redraw the applications. GTK apps are faster to redraw, although far from ideal. This happens both with the effects enabled as well as disabled. When the effects are enabled, it's faster, but still very slow.

When switching apps or desktops in Gnome with Compiz running, it's almost instantaneous... I don't think it's because of any particular effect like Blur, because I've disabled them all, though the compositing is up (e.g. the bar is transparent, but all other effects are off in KWin). On the other hand I have plenty of effects enabled in Compiz and it's still ways much faster.

I have ATI Radeon X1200 integrated card, using the radeon driver 1.6.13.2 (I'm not sure whether is it from experimental or Sid, but I don't think it matters, since the older versions were slow the same) without any particular configuration from my side (i.e. no xorg.conf).On my other computer with either quite powerful NVidia card or an Intel card the performance is the same in KWin and Compiz...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon 5750 Drivers?

Apr 18, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Drivers For The ATI Radeon X1200?

Oct 13, 2010

My laptop currently is : [url]

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.

Debian :: Installing Drivers For Radeon Hd4350 ?

Jan 30, 2010

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.

Debian Release 5.0.4 (lenny) Kernel Linux 2.6.26-2-amd64 GNOME 2.22.3
MSI KA780G mothboard
2x1gb ddr2 pc2-5300

Software :: Current State Of Radeon Drivers ?

May 14, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon HD 5650 Gets VERY Slow After Enabling Compositing In KDE?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a laptop with the radeon HD 5650 video card. I used ubuntu's hardware drivers program to install the official drivers, and it seems to be working well, including 3D acceleration in games. However, it seems that enabling compositing in KDE makes it much slower. For example, running glxgears without compositing gives me about 35000 frames in 5 seconds, after I enable compositing it's only 6000 frames. But it's not just glxgears, the slowness is very noticeable in games as well.

On my old computer, I had an nVidia card, and enabling compositing in KDE made it a little slower, but the difference definitely wasn't that huge. o_O Is it some wrong configuration, a bug in ATI's drivers, or something else?

Debian Hardware :: Both Radeon Drivers Cause System Failures

Mar 14, 2016

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 [0300]: 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.

OpenSUSE :: PC Speed Under 11.4 - Radeon Graphics Drivers From YaST

Jul 28, 2011

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?

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse Radeon HD 5850 Drivers?

Mar 7, 2010

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.

2)sh ./ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run
7) /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial

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.)

Debian Multimedia :: No 3D With Radeon HD 4200, Open-source Drivers?

Feb 21, 2010

I'm running a Squeeze system on a PC with an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. Until recently I had been using the fglrx drivers without difficulty, but a recent upgrade removed fglrx - apparently this is because ATI has yet to release drivers for Xorg 1.7. So I've switched to the open source driver (radeon), but am not getting any 3D acceleration - hence can't run desktop effects in either kwin or compiz. When I run "glxinfo | grep OpenGL" I get the following:

OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.6.1
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
OpenGL extensions:

It's the software rasterizer that is the problem, I gather. After Googling for similar problems encountered by others, I've installed firmware-linux and firmware-linux-nonfree, but to no effect. All fglrx-* packages are purged. Does anyone have any other thoughts? (I don't currently have an xorg.conf file in use.)
