Ubuntu Multimedia :: Catalyst X86_64 Driver For Radeon 4850 Install Failing?

May 2, 2011

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:

Installation complete.
*** glibc detected *** ./ double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x000000000259f630 ***

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Installation - GUI Failing To Start

Dec 5, 2010

I had an Ubuntu 10.10 installation that ran fine for around a month or so. I decided to go out and try to install aptosid (formerly known as sidux) as a dual boot. I couldn't get the desktop to boot in the LiveCD and kept getting an error saying that the nouveau module could not be loaded. I rebooted and at the main LiveCD screen, I added xmodule=vesa xres=1440X900. I was able to get a 1024x768 resolution. I decided that I really didn't like aptosid, so I shut it down and took out the LiveCD. When I booted back into Ubuntu, my resolution changed down to 640x480 for some reason. I decided to remove the proprietary nVidia driver I had installed via jockey. Once it was removed, I restarted. Now, I see no startup splash or a login screen - my monitor just goes to sleep.

I have all my files backed up already, so I decided to pop in my Kubuntu 10.10 LiveCD to install that. Once I choose the "Start Kubuntu" option, my monitor goes to sleep. I tried putting in Linux Mint Debian Edition LiveCD to see if that would work, and I had the same issue. After this, I went for the nuclear option and installed Windows 7 to see if it would wipe out any memory of my Linux drivers from the system. The Windows drivers for my card worked fine, so I decided to put the Kubuntu LiveCD back in and got the same problem. I am currently running a Partition Magic LiveCD, but could only boot into it using the Xvesa option instead of Xorg. My video card is an nVidia 9800 GT - and it has always worked in the past.

Networking :: Network Service Failing To Start

Mar 5, 2011

I have recently installed CentOS onto an old machine to get it up and running as a basic web/mail server. Originally the Network Interface worked ok, however I have been editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to try and set the IP address to be static.Now when I run the 'service network restart' command it won't bring the eth0 interface up and comes up with the following errors;

ifcfg-eth0 Line 3 DEVICE: command not found
missing config file ifcfg-ifcfg-eth0

It doesn't seem to like any of the command words, even though most of these were in the original file that worked and the ones I added to do static I have commented out.

Fedora :: Services (Haproxy And Stunnel) Failing To Start

Dec 3, 2009

I have 2 services registered one for HAProxy and one for stunnel. When I type service start haproxy or service start stunnel they start and everything works fine. I ran ntsysv and they are set as autostart, and I have init.d scripts that work. I have checked the runlevel and using chkconfig runlevel 3, 4 and 5 are :on. And I also added service haproxy start and service stunnel start to inittab. But when I restart the computer haproxy and stunnel fail to autostart. I am a fedora novice and I have no idea why this isn't working...

Debian :: Systemd Failing To Start System - Recovery Mode Fine

Nov 5, 2015

My previously running debian system recently started failing with systemd failure messages as some services are being started. It never completes. I can log into recovery mode.

I added systemd.log_target=kmsg systemd.log_level=debug into my grub parameters.

After I do that all that I see scrolling down the page on boot are:

systemd-journald[36] /dev/kmsg buffer overrun, some messages lost
and the occasional
systemd[1] Looping too fast Throttling execution a little

Is there a way that I can boot without systemd using sysvinit?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Start Kde After Installing ATI Radeon 3450

Aug 23, 2010

I can't get kde to start. I boot through the blue ubuntu 10.04 splash screen normally, so my video card is putting out something, but then i drop into a tty terminal. I log on ok, but when i do startkde from the command line i get a message saying can't connect to xserver, when i do startx, i get these errors: (i can't stuff them here cuz i don't have a mouse or a cut and paste ability)EE) NVIDIA:

Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module.
EE) No drivers available.

But here's the backstory: I have a ASUS M3N78 PRO MB with an on board Nvidia GeForce 8300 graphics capability. It was intermittently failing, so i disconnected it put in an ATI RADEON PowerColor HD 3450 graphics card, and then my problems started. Seems to me I must have the Nvidia driver since i can boot to KDE fine using the Nvidia onboard analog output (at least some of the time).

Supposedly Lucid Lynx has the ATI drivers for my card preinstalled, plus the new card does drive the splash screen. Is there some clash in some script between the Nvidia on the MB and my ATI Card? I upgraded to GRUB2, reconfigured xserver-xorg, tried to run jockey from the command line and failed, tried sudo nvidia-xconfig. Nothing changed anything.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Kde Won't Start With Radeon Driver

Nov 11, 2010

I got 11.3 64-bit installed properly the first time around and working with a Radeon HD4350. I noticed X to be somewhat sluggish on certain apps under KDE so a couple of days ago I tried to install the Catalyst 10.10 tool from the unofficial repository. I didn't like it and uninstalled it.

After some research it turned out that the proper driver is radeon so I uninstalled the radeonhd driver and rebooted hoping Xorg will pick up the radeon driver automatically as it is included with my kernel. Didn't work and I couldn't even get past the failsafe login screen. Regular boot doesn't even get to the login screen. Just hangs and won't respond to any keyboard commands.

I followed the instruction at this SDB Configuring graphics cards in openSUSE 11.3 using the ATI Xorg -configure option from level 3 console and creating a radeon xorg.conf file. It all works to the point of "startx" as regular user which just brings me back to console. Rebooting and does the same things as before under failsafe and regular. Even nomodeset doesn't help. The output error from startx in failsafe console mode is the following:


Could not open library ksmserver: Cannot load library /usr/lib64/ ( cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory) reinstalling is not an option as I have a lot of custom stuff on this box.

Hardware :: Can't Start X On Radeon Xpress 200M

Aug 22, 2010

I can usually solve this type of problem myself, but this time around I'm totally stumped. Can anyone lend a hand? A little background: I have an HP Pavilion ZV6233NR with no screen installed, connected through the VGA to my LCD TV. This is a somewhat older desktop replacement laptop. I have repurposed it to run as both a server and a media center (e.g. it connects to my TV). I'm upgrading from Debian Etch to Debian Squeeze (never installed Lenny). With Etch, I used the proprietary fglrx driver, however the fglrx package in Squeeze doesn't support such old hardware (obviously), but the new foss radeon driver does.

The problem: First, suppose I run X with no arguments, the (EE) and (WW) lines in /var/log/Xorg.0.log read (excluding missing font files):

(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory


I've attached the full Xorg.0.log for that second case (radeon driver using the conf file), in case that helps. Three things I've tried (but for all I know bungled, test me if you think I might have):Fresh installation from the CD. (In case I had left over fglrx stuff lying around.) Horizontal and vertical refresh rates for the screen (although I didn't actually look them up in the LCD screen's manual).
Setting modes in the screen section to restrict the resolution and/or color depth.

Debian Hardware :: X Doesn't Start With Radeon 9200

Mar 11, 2011

I changed my graphics card from Nvidia GeForce 2 MX200 (drivers I used were nouveau) to ATI Radeon 9200SE (now drivers should be radeon). Unfortunately I couldn't get X to start. It leaves me to black screen with white cursor blinking. Both cards are AGP on old Slot 1 motherboard. Reason for change was that GeForce didn't support interlacing on VGA. There are no updates installed to Debian (Squeeze), because there is no internet connection on this computer currently. I tried few things but they didn't work:

* I tried to reconfigure xserver-xorg, didn't help
* I tried to make xorg.conf with X -configure and then moved it to correct place, didn't help
* I tried radeon.modeset=0 option, but it didn't help, I had some other problems with this but I think it's not important (I'll tell later if needed)

I tested Fedora 15 Alpha XFCE LiveCD, but it didn't boot because of my CPU I guess (VIA C3 1 GHz, Nehalem core). I also tested Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD, but it told that there was an error with radeon and low graphics mode is needed or something like that. So it was as bad as Debian. I took few logs and stuff to pastebin.

I have set up a nis slave server on Fedora 14. It was set up on a laptop so that the user can log in when he is at home (no NFS, local home dir). However, whenever the eth0 is disconnected, ypbind fails.

I have tried the same setup on a RHEL 4 (configured it as a slave server) against the same master nis as on the Fedora 14. Disabling eth0 on it however does not fail ypbind.

Server :: SSHD Daemon Is Failing

Jun 29, 2011

I have a Redhat fedora core release 6 ( server and form time to time ssh fails although I am still able to ping the device and with a reboot the device will start working correctly so upon further investigation it appears the sshd daemon fails.Not knowing a great deal about Linux I thought I would ask some advice on the path I am thinking of taking. The first would be to put an entry in the cron to try and start the ssdh every hour or so. Would this cause issues in the long term run it multiple times when the sshd daemon was still running?

The Second though I had was having a bash script to check if the process was running and if not restarts it and if it was just exit the program which would seem like a neater way to do it but this is where my limited Linux knowledge hits a wall so was looking for suggestion on how to implement this?

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server RAID5 LVM Failing After Reboot Due To It Using The /dev/sd* Designations

Dec 5, 2010

I'm a light linux user over the last couple of years and I decided to built a HTPC/NAS device.

40gb ide -> usb boot drive
3x2tb sata (4k Sector) drives

I've got another 2tb identical drive but it's holding data that is going to be copied to the raid after it's up and running and then be 'grown' into the raid array to yield a final 5+tb array. I tried doing a disk util raid array and it ended up failing after reboot due to it using the /dev/sd* designations and they swapped. I have no idea how to do the UUID version, my googlefu and practical guide to ubuntu. So I decided to do it manually in order to also fix the sector issue as disk util wasn't formatting them correctly and once formatted wouldn't let me create a raid array from the discs.

General :: Booting - Lvm - Failing Hard Drive - Ubuntu Server

Aug 3, 2009

I seem to have a complex issue on my hands that i can't figure out. first, i wasn't able to get access to my LVM'd hard drives via SSH without half of the content being missing or locked out (read-only or unable to open at all). the problem then went up to being unable to boot up - all i got was a long slew of [100.1234] ata1.00: error messages (they eventually DO stop once they get to around 998.234234 or whatever, and then i can log in and it seems to be "stable").

Part way through this rebooting ordeal i realized / decided to make power-on-self-test stop and wait if it finds errors (via bios) - that showed me that my 750G SATA drive is "bad" and my two (older) 120G & 250G IDE drives are "ok". i then unplugged the SATA drive, rebooted, and didn't see those error messages. however, my LVM was still obviously not coming together (since LVM was made up of the 120G, 250G, and 750G drives)

So, now it seems:

a) I can't boot smoothly with all drives in place
b) I can't do anything with lvm if i remove the 750G sata
c) With all drives hooked up, i can wait 10mins for the errors to go away, but STILL can't do anything with lvm
d) I need to recover the lvm stuff so that i can nicely migrate ALL those files (1.1TB of it) onto a new 1.5TB drive and do away with lvm

This is all running ubuntu 7.10 server edition (32-bit version on a 64-bit computer). i DID post a question on the ubuntu forum as well but so far got no replies at all.

Here's a few pics of the booting process, with one or two "fail" lines showing.

Server :: Red Hat 5.4 Kickstart / Clustering And KVM Installation Failing

Mar 14, 2011

I added the "@clustering" and "@kvm" keywords to my ks.cfg file but during installation, an error about not being able to find either of these packages popped up and it wasn't installed.

I do see the Cluster and VT directories in my redhat_es5.4 directory along with the Server directory. The rest of the files install just fine.

In doing some net and forum searching, I find a reference to a base.repo file that lists the directories but I'm not sure if it's related to creating a yum repository or if not, should it have been created in the redhat_es5.4 directory.

While I've built kickstarts for several years and am comfortable with the file, this is the first time I'm working with rpms outside the main Server path.

Server :: Cron Backup Failing / Need To Browse Tape

Feb 9, 2010

we have a server that runs a backup (cron job) at 9:15 every night. When I log on in the morning I have mail message that gives me a long list of all the files that were backed up the night before. For a couple of weeks now, the mail message gives me an empty list. Yet, when I run the same job manually from a #prompt, it runs. I am not able to run this job with cron in the daytime because too many users are in it. I wanted to browse the tape to see if the backup is really failing to copy the files or if they are on the tape and the mail message is bogus.

Since the backkup was done with cpio instead of tar, I'm not sure if I can browse the tape with restore -i anyway.What would be the best way to browse the tape on /dev/rmt/1 without actually restoring anything ?This is an ancient DGUX system, not Linux, and I'm not a unix expert I just inherited this server recently, but a lot of things are very similar to Linux and it looked like this might be a good place to ask.

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


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...
