Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATi Radeon 9200 + TV Out Work With The Open Source Drivers?

Aug 3, 2010

A friend of mine is looking for a cheap PCI graphics card to do TV-out from his PCI only PC for MythTV duties. We've found cheap old PCI Radeon 9200's with TV Out on eBay. These appear to only be supported by the open source drivers now, but will the TV out work with 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.)

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 :: Radeon 5770 Open Source Driver

Mar 2, 2011

I just upgraded my rig from a 4770 to a 5770 video card.

My 4770 had basic 3d support out of the box with the open source radeon driver. My 5770 doesn't seem to (basic rendering only with no compositing), although this page suggests it does:

[URL]

Is there anyone out there who is running a 5770 or knows how I can upgrade to a newer version of the open source driver? I'd rather not use catalyst (Id don't game with ubuntu) and I found the open source driver to be quite nice.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Proprietary Vs Open-source Driver On Radeon HD 5xxx

Aug 23, 2011

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.

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?

Ubuntu :: ATI Radeon 9200 Unusable In Maverick?

Nov 5, 2010

Did anyone try to get ATI Radeon 9200 working on Maverick? For me, the DVI flickers all the time like crazy and is totally unusable.

frglx doesn't seem to support it anymore, adding Option "NoAccel" partially solved the issue

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 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?

Ubuntu :: How To Grab Open Source Radeon Temps

May 2, 2010

Does anyone know if it's possible to grab the temperatures from an ATI card using the open source radeon driver (not fglrx/catalyst).

I must say that the radeon driver has come a long way and works wonderfully under Lucid for my needs. I'm just a bit worried about the lack of PM support and how high my temps might be. I would prefer some way to keep an eye on things

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.

Ubuntu :: Performance With Open Source Radeon Driver With X1650

May 28, 2010

I have a performance issue using the open source radeon driver. I normally would just attribute this to the driver still not ready, but it was working fine on the Mandriva install I just wiped out. I replaced madriva in order to have Qimo sessions for my daughter to use. When I try to run glxgears the gears basically don't move.

Fedora :: Hardware Acceleration Using Open Source Radeon

May 3, 2011

My system config is in my sig.I want to know if I have hardware acceleration using radeon open source driver.I did substantial searching on the internet and have come across this post:ATI Hardware Acceleration - XBMC Community Forum

I am doing all this because I have read on the internet that the open source radeon driver does not enable H/w acceleration properly which means that choppy performance while playing HD movies and / or while playing OpenGL games. Not that OpenGL games don't work, they just work very slowly even with Direct Rendering of Mesa drivers. Then there's this thing about Kernel Mode Setting as well which isn't available in the proprietary ATI driver.

Ubuntu :: Built On A ASUS P4S800D-E Motherboard And It Has An ATI Radeon 9200 LE Graphics Card

May 23, 2010

I just lost my weekend trying to install Xubuntu 10.04 on my pc I made the ps a while back - its built on a ASUS P4S800D-E motherboard and it has an ATI Radeon 9200 LE graphics card. It has a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, 1Gb of memory and a 160Gb PATA/IDE hard drive (I unplugged the SATA drives) Every time I installed or made a tweak to the config it failed in the same way. It showed its failure by continually repeating the first character typed. Regardless of whether this was the password screen for synaptic or just the first character typed into a terminal. Until the first character was typed the mouse seemed to work ok but then it would stall too

I've tried most things, running Xorg with/without an xorg.conf file, loading the ppa kernel and tweaking loads of bios and grub boot parameters all to no avail. So I think I want a more linux friendly graphics card and I fear I may need a new motherboard. Can someone recommend a replacement graphics card for this motherboard? Can anyone reassure me that my motherboard is ok with linux?

Debian Hardware :: ATI R7 Graphics Card - Open Source Radeon Or Fglrx Catalyst?

Jul 11, 2014

I've set up this new PC, the graphic card I picked is the ATI R7 260X, pretty good card with lots of core processors, high clock and 2GB memory. I'm now currently using the 14.4 catalyst drive, it works actually alright, though, there are some mishaps with this driver:

First my hdmi screen had scale down, leaving black borders around, even though the catalyst control said the correct native resolution, this turned out to be a underscan that fglrx does and I've finally managed to fix it. Other caveat is that the screen simply won't suspend or turn off( via software), DPMS actually works, forcing it turns the screen blank for some seconds but something does not allow the screen to sleep.

Performance wise it seems pretty good though, everything is pretty smooth, being able to play games maxed out on resolution and ultra settings, though, I still haven't tested out that many games.

The open-source radeon on the other hand, well its open-source, fully xorg and linux compatible, which is a major plus point. It seem it has come a long way, supporting lot of features and providing better performance in some cases.

Before installing Catalyst I had issues with mesa and steam, steam would complain about not finding the 32bit libraries, this is however a steam runtime issue, maybe it could already be fixed.

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

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:

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.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get OpenGL To Work On Radeon Free Drivers (Jessie)

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie. All the firmware packages are properly installed, and so are the radeon free driver packages.

However, Gallium falls back to llvmpipe, which from what I understand is a software rasterizer and not actually hardware rendering.

Everything works fine except some specific things like KDE's cube animation, which says it can't be enabled because it requires OpenGL.

How do I get Debian to run Gallium properly?

I attached some relevant info...

Fedora Installation :: The Video Card Is An ATI Radeon And The Drivers From The ATI Site Don't Work

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.

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.

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] ....").
