Software :: Where Is The Source Codes For The Open Source Drivers For Each Distros

Jan 2, 2009

We all know we can install a linux system such as Fedora 10 and use it. Being linux, one should in principle get the source codes for everything that has been precompiled (except the proprietary drivers such as nvidia) in the installation DVDs/CDs. Where are the source codes ? Is there a place I can download them ?
To avoid confusion, I am not referring to the kernel source that can be compiled to give a linux kernel, but that does not include the drivers, such as intel_drv.so.

To be more specific, the intel graphic i810 driver has been built into any linux system, but where is the exact source? One answer may be that primary source intellinuxgraphics.com. However, if anyone tries to download the every changing (i.e., keep updated almost every single day) driver source codes from freedesktop.org, it is almost certain that the source codes will not be the same as the one that is finalized in Fedora 10.

Ubuntu :: Restore ATI Open Source Drivers?

Apr 22, 2010

I have been testing with the ATI Catalyst drivers. I have made a package from the 9.12. I have found that they were not working the way I want, so i tried to switch back via synaptic. I have removed everything which had to do to "fglrx"

now when I restart, here is the message i get

Quote:

UBUNTU is running in low graphic mode The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this. (EE) failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)

For information, it does start in low graphic mode. I have reinstalled the "fglrx" module, but the problem is still the same. If I reinstall the fglrx drivers from synaptic or terminal, I am back with the newer catalyst driver. I cannot switch back to the ubuntu repository one it seem.

I have done the following to try to get the open source back

Quote:

sudo /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh # (if it exists)
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

I still have the same problem. Now I do not have any package installed with "fglrx" I have reconfigured xserver-xorg and it will only start in low graphic mode.

Ubuntu :: Sound Through HDMI With Open Source Drivers?

Jul 12, 2010

I have been trying to get sound to work through the open source HDMI drivers, does anyone know how to do this?

I get a perfect picture through HDMI but no sound. The ATI HDMI option is not muted and is enabled. I dont know what else to do. I opened a terminal and did "aplay -l" and I can see the device in there. I DO get sound using the proprietary drivers supplied by ATI, but I get screen tearing and makes the picture look horrible.. So for now its Sound vs Picture quality... Why cant I have both :/

Ubuntu :: ATI Open Source Drivers: No Hardware Acceleration

Mar 13, 2011

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series (I believe 5470, but I forget). I installed the open source ATI drivers using instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver. Wonderfully, this gives me triple monitor support (LVDS, VGA, and HDMI at the same time), which the proprietary drivers couldn't do for me. But now I don't have 3D support (and XBMC crawls horribly as a result.) glxinfo shows me I have software rendering:

Code:
$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.9-devel
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

Ubuntu :: Replacing FGLRX With The Open Source ATI Drivers?

Apr 3, 2011

I have an ATI Radeon 4200 HD Mobility, with 256 MB of my RAM dedicated to it. I installed FGLRX, but the performance actually dropped compared to the open source drivers that come installed by default. I removed fglrx, and reinstalled the Radeon packages, but no avail.

Now, when I boot, I get the error, "unable to load module 'fglrx'," and my only option is to run Ubuntu in Safe Graphics Mode. This tells me that the computer is still trying to load FGLRX, and there's something that needs to be altered down at the boot level.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Install ATI Open Source Drivers

May 23, 2011

As far as I can tell, I have the proprietary AMD drivers installed.

I want to install the open source drivers instead to see if I can get better performance.

According to this site, I have to install the PPA to my software sources as instructed here. I've done that. But how do I actually install the open source drivers?

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.)

Debian Hardware :: Switchable Graphics And Open Source Drivers

Sep 10, 2014

My questions is about switching graphics card on a Intel/AMD hybrid system using open source drivers (Envy 15 with HD4000 and AMD 7690M). I was waiting for an proprietary driver from AMD but apparently it will not be released in the near future and I need to use AMD chip for my 3D intense applications.

Debian Hardware :: 8.0 Crashed After Installing ATI Open Source Drivers

Sep 11, 2015

The ATI/AMD graphics hardware is:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Oland [Radeon HD 8570 / R7 240 OEM]

I installed "AMD/ATI Open Source Drivers" according to: "[URL] ....":

Reboot after "apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree", the system automaticly reboot after grub, then went black screen forever (no tty1,tty2.., seems cannot booting). I reinstalled serveral times but same problem (having tried both cd/live dvd, debian8.1/8.2).

It seems that "firmware-linux-nonfree" is the cause, since debian crashed once firmware-linux-nonfree installed.

The problem went away by installing ATIProprietary driver("[URL] ....").

PC is dell 9020, i7

Software :: GUI Tool For Configuring Open Source Radeon Drivers

Sep 4, 2010

Last year I had a gui tool for configuring the radeon open source drivers in my old slackware install but now I forgot the name of it. I'm pretty sure it was gtk based and no matter what I type in google I can't seem to find any reference to it. There is a radeontool but that's not it. Anyone know what the name for it was, or something else that provides easy configuring of the open source radeon drivers? I remember it had lots of options to configure including some I've never heard of. Thought it'd be easy to find now since it seemed so officially supported during the time I used it!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgrade Open Source Drivers To Newer Ubuntu?

Nov 15, 2010

I have a thin client HP t5730 with a ATI x1250 ()Running Ubuntu 10.04 everything works fine, the graphic card is recognized with the open source drivers and everything looks good. I am planning on installing XBMC Live, which is built upon Ubuntu 9.10, and no matter what i do, it never detects the card. I have tried everything, installing the appropriate ATI drivers, installing EvnyNG and the list goes on. Aticonfig still shows: no supported adapters. My question is, is it possible to upgrade to the newer open source drivers that Ubuntu comes with or does anyone have any other idea?

General :: Non Rolling Release Source Based Distros?

Sep 11, 2010

I've used worked with gentoo for a little while but I kind of get annoyed by the rolling release. It seems that I need to emerge something every week. So I was wondering if there was a source based distro that had a dated release of stable packages, kind of like ubuntu. The primary use of this distro will be for my latitude 2100 net-book with touchscreen and an atom processor, so it will need to have a fairly new kernel. Also, I love the way gentoo is built from scratch. It allows for a very clean system. I would be happy with either linux or bsd based system. Also, since it is this is a notebook, I would like to be able to compile through a nfs network so i can use the resources from another system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Compile Drivers Or Hostapd From Source + Ath9k = No 11n

Nov 19, 2010

I've been running hostapd for a while in 11g mode with great success. Having upgraded the router machine to maverick today, I had a poke at getting hostapd working in 11n mode without too much fuss. From cursory reading of old forum posts, this appears to now be built in functionality without needing to compile drivers or hostapd from source - this is borne out by a few 11n-related lines in the default configuration file.

When adding those two lines to my config file, though, I get the same error message I did a few years ago when trying this out for the first time:

Ubuntu :: Open Source Pdf Plugin

Oct 8, 2010

I can not seem to find a pdf viewer browser plugin other than the actual craprobat plugin from Adobe. The default Ubuntu install comes with a perfectly good open source stand alone pdf viewer, but this means that the browser has to save it to your download directory then run the external viewer, and eventually your download directory is all cluttered up. I would much rather just view the pdf in the browser.Is there no open source browser plugin?
