View Full Version : HOWTO: ATI drivers

Ok, there have been many many posts about this, many users breaking their heads over this.

I've been trying to get it to work for months. Finally last night I stayed up chatting with guys at #ati on irc.freenode.org and finally here's the solution. I simply have to share this with everyone as there were certain things I need to change in order for the graphics to work that I have not seen mentioned anywhere else (doesn't mean that they don't exist).

First of all: BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!

Second, but not least: Don't just copy and past all the commands, make sure I don't have any typos and that you have those dir, ideally type it in and use the tab key to complete.

There is no need to make your life more miserable by reinstalling your Ubuntu everytime you screw things up (That's why I left Windows, at least one of the 10 billions of reasons)

Do:

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup

Now:

Download this file:

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm

Once downloaded go to the dir you downloaded it to. Always a good idea to create a downloads file in your home dir. Do: (only for ubuntu & debian users)

sudo alien fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm

Now you should have the following .deb package:

fglrx-6-8-0_8.10.19-2_i386.deb

Type:

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite fglrx-6-8-0_8.10.19-2_i386.deb

You have to force overwrite otherwise it wont install. Mesa wont let you.

Now we need to edit you xorg.conf

Now it's time to configure:

type fglrxconfig

also type in another terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

you will need to find your monitor frequencies, in order to punch them in to your fglrxconfig when it asks you for them. Before writing your fglrxconfig to file make sure to close your xorg.conf.

In fglrxconfig the defaults should work fine, when it comes where it asks you to use external AGP choose "YES" note the default is "no" for those trigger happy users who just press the enter key without thinking much.

when you come to the the hsync (horizontal sync) and vsync (vertical sync) part choose the option which allows you to enter a custom range (the last option). Copy what is in your xorg.conf "monitor" section and paste it.

Save the file. Restart X, reboot, whatever u want.

type:

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Make sure your Device section looks like this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 9200 SE (RV280)"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:2:0:0"
Option "backingstore" "true"
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"
EndSection

Obviously if you don't have a radeon 9200 the identifier will be different. The important ones are Driver should be the same, Option 1 and Option 2

Now go to the Modules section:

Section "Module"
Load "bitmap"
Load "dbe"
Load "ddc"
Load "dri"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "int10"
Load "record"
Load "type1"
Load "vbe"
EndSection

Note the Load "dri" if it's not there add it.

Now go to the "extensions" section, it should look like this:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection


NOTE: It's either 3D accl graphics or composite effects such as fading and shadowns, not both. Make your choice. To me the choice is obvious. If it's important to you, then an NVIDIA card should be your next choice.

Ok, almost there!

type:

cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/

sudo sh make.sh

For the next command you need to be out of X. I press ctrl +alt+ F2

cd /lib/modules/fglrx

sh make_install.sh

startx

If sh make.sh give you errors then you'll need to apt-cache

Unfortunately it was late at night so I don't remember the command, I will try and find it and then edit thei HOWTO, if anyone else know what it is, please post it.

I deffinetaly needed it, so I'm sure others do too.

Hope this helped.

feel free to ask me.

It should be noted that you should try this method if using the normal packages does not work, which it does for some people(me included).

Normal method being download and install the xorg-driver-fglrx, fglrx-control, and most importantly linux-restricted-modules-<kernel type> using apt/synaptic.

And then changing the line in your xorg.conf file from reading

Driver "ati"

to reading

Driver "fglrx"

Thanks, it's working here now.

But i only get ~115 fps in glxgears. I got ~880 in slackware
Are you familiar to this problem?

In glxgears, with MESA GL, i get like 350-400 fps.


With FGLRX i get 4000 FPS :)

Hi Did the above but now get this error message when I try to change screen resolution.
Any help appreiciated.

"The X Server does not support the XRandR extension. Runtime resolution changes to the display size are not available."

When using the fglrx driver, you must configure your resolution in the xorg.conf file - resolution changes cannot be made on-the-fly.

Look for the Subsection "Display" in the "Screen" section - specifically the "Modes" line. The order of these modes is the order X will try them until it gets one that works - make sure you have your desired mode first.

The best indication for if your driver works is not the glgears test, but running an app.

After all if ur apps are running smooth, what do u care?

Try an app and see if it works slow. If you are still using mesa as your gl, that is a msitake and needs to be fixed. If you followed the steps exactly as I mentioned mesa should have been replaced with ati.

Sometimes I get 2000 sometimes 500 and yet I play half-life 2 and its always smooth.

Seems to me that mesa is still in charge. Did you check?

type fglrxinfo

Tried this in Warty, and of course X didn't like it. Had to fix it from command line. (sorry, just proud of myself for fixing a linux problem)

Look if in your xorg.conf.


You see driver : fglrx instead of ati.

When i did this, everything worked.

This is my xorg.conf, can you guys se anything wrong?

fglrx is probed, but X aint loading it

Try putting the DRI section at the bottom of the file. Also the Internal AGP GART should only be removed if you are using a NFORCE2 chipset mobo, if your not then delete that line so that it can be functional.

This is what I think yours should look like :D

Hi

Everything went well up till the part where I had to do

sudo sh make.sh

I got an error message that said:

ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
file: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h


and so sh make_install.sh wouldn't work either :(

Any idea how I might solve this problem?

thanks!

I guess I'm lucky in that the hoary ones work for me (and much better than the warty ones ever did since I have yet to experience a crash).

Just curious why ATI doesn't support composite stuff. It's surprising fun to mess with that stuff.

Looks like you need to install the linux headers for your kernel version from synaptic.

yeah man that is the part that i dont remember how to do. I ahd the exact problem. Go to irc.freenode.org and join #ati ask them there. You have to apt-cache certain headers and then it will work.

You have to install the linux-headers for your kernel version.

Do:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers
(or something similar, you should be able to select/find the correct name of the package by searching for it in synaptic)

Hi again

I managed to fix the problem of make.sh not working by following the instructions at this link

http://www.ubuntulinux.org/support/documentation/faq/compile-kernel-module

It turns out I was indeed missing the kernel headers :)

Unfortunately, even after successfully running make.sh and make_install.sh, fglrxinfo still tells me that Mesa is running : /



I think make.sh didn't run perfectly though, here's the output when i type in "sudo sh make.sh"

ATI module generator V 2.0

==============================
You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx
and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module.



Does anyone have any ideas what that warning message means, if anything?

Thanks for the quick replies btw everybody, I appreciate it!

Well, it does say it has succeeded, so I would go ahead and try continuing with the installation. You`ll know if it hasn`t worked properly when you come to attempt the modprobe.

If you have your old xorg.conf backed up you have nothing to lose. :)

Good luck.

Ok guys this is what you have to download if your sh make.sh doesn't work.

type:

sudo apt-cache search linux-headers

find your platform. Most people have a 386 kernel, so download the one with the 386 which is:

linux-headers-2.6.10-5-386 - Linux kernel headers 2.6.10 on 386

or

linux-headers-386 - Linux kernel headers on 386

type:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-386

now you probably noticed the linux-headers-2.6.11-1-386. Do not dowload that, as your kernel is only 2.6.10-5. Don't go looking for the 2.6.11-1 kernel either, as it's not supported yet, and if like me u want to be at the edge of things and end up downloading it your linux will freeze after login in X.

Hi, i'm still having trouble getting this to work. I did everything described in the first post and fglrxinfo still says I'm using Mesa :|

I'm having this problem too. I followed the first post pretty closely (Closely is an understatement considering the reason I'm using Ubuntu now is because I actually ruined my Fedora 3 trying to get this crap to work: Fedora wasn't as good as Ubuntu anyway, too much bloat.)

I'm having the same troubles as Gasley. Fglrxinfo still says I'm using Mesa - and the xorg.conf file just doesn't seem to be what it should. I've followed fglrxconfig, it was rewritten differently - but it seems sketchy. For example: Under devices it says



# Standard VGA Device:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Standard VGA"
VendorName "Unknown"
BoardName "Unknown"


Yeah? Why? I wasn't recieving errors or anything all the way through - no harm done thus far. But my xorg.conf file just doesn't seem right anyway.

That section about the Standard VGA is just an example that fglrxconfig put there.

Okay, I can see you have set UseInternalAGPGART "no". Setting this to yes would crash the X server right? (it does here)

Might be helpful if you post your Xorg.log.0 (or something like that) here, this greatly increases the help we can give you.

Edit: Oh and Liau, that error message is quite 'normal', it appeared on my rig too, but fglrx is working, so you can ignore the error.


Warning: could not find /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/.libfglrx_ip.a.GCC3.cmd for /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/libfglrx_ip.a.GCC3

It should be noted that you should try this method if using the normal packages does not work, which it does for some people(me included).

Normal method being download and install the xorg-driver-fglrx, fglrx-control, and most importantly linux-restricted-modules-<kernel type> using apt/synaptic.

And then changing the line in your xorg.conf file from reading

Driver "ati"

to reading

Driver "fglrx"

Holy crap it worked! I uninstalled the fglrx-6-8-0 file from synaptic. Then I installed the fglrx-control and the xorg-driver-fglrx files from synaptic. Restarted X, and VOILA! Direct rendering: Yes // And glxgears gave off FPS above 10,000. I'm an idiot who lucked out after ruining one OS and spending a couple weeks on this. WOO!!

I've just done the same thing, using fglrx-6-8-0 from the ati website worked for all the kernels bar 2.6.10-5, but the "official" hoary drivers now work. People should also realise that forcing fglrx-6-8-0 to install will cause problems with mesa packages later on, did with me anyway.

Is there anyway of getting a gtk based ati-control? I wanted to install it but didn't want to install the qt library.

Might be helpful if you post your Xorg.log.0 (or something like that) here, this greatly increases the help we can give you.

I was supposed to post that logfile too, but I seem to have forgotten that.

Had to upload it to my homepages, since it was too big to post inside code-tags or as an attachment: Xorg.0.log (http://wesley.laatikko.org/Xorg.0.log.txt)

it works perfect, but unreal 2004 works slower than windows :(
glxgears gets 3034.600 fps (radeon 9600PRO with 128MB).
is this score normal for this video card?

*sorry if i had any english grammer \ spelling mistake.
english isn't my native

I'm using the latest hoary releace (RC) and have installed the drivers through synaptic aswell as the kenrel headers and am still having problems. Here is the part of my xorg log where it started giving me probs.

<snip>



If you are going to use these drivers, please use the fglrxconfig application supplied to generate an X config file.

I did actually get the fglrx drivers to work with the apt-getted ones. But 2D seems to SUCK with those drivers.. The mesa ones is MUCH better, not good, but better..

Is there any reason for me to try these or will it be the same?

I dont need any super acceleration, but to get the windows move smooth would be a big plus!

Thanks

If you are not using 3d applications/games, it would probably be better to stick with the open source drivers.

When i run the fglrxconfig that comes with hoary it says it is designed fro xf86config; hoary uses xorg. when i try to use it, X won't start; even if i rename it xorg.conf

Can you give us your xorg log? It is at /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I also did the uninstall and install through synaptec as described a few posts back. It also worked for me! I would suggest anyone with ati to do as described there first as it is simple and quick. I am now getting 3000+ fps in glxgears and I can now play World of Warcraft in cedega! It all runs very smooth. Thank you very much for everyone's effort and help in this issue.

I have tried MANY linux distros and always get frustrated at the lack of community and help. If I would ask a question they would give me a few steps that only a linux guru would know. Here you help with step by step directions that I can follow and learn from. Kudos to the Ubuntu community, the best one around!

OK. Thanks. If I'm to annoied Ill switch to my GF3 card instead..

Sorry for my delayed response. I might just format since there is probably conflicts between the two drivers since i have tried them both. Which method is guaranteed to give me 3D support? anyways, here is my xorg log:

NOTE: I had to trim some of the fat off since it was too large to paste in.

Hrmm....well if there is nothing critical, a reinstall of hoary is probably the easiest. As for drivers, I'm using the one in hoary, it was just recently updated the 8.8.25 so unless I've misunderstood something there doesn't appear to be any advantage to compiling your own. Especially because the hoary one just worked for me (just sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx)

Sorry to say that I can't help you....just newbie at the whole linux thing myself. ;-)

Ok, did a fresh install of hoary and am using the fglrx drivers that you get through apt.

After examining the Xorg log more closely i noticed this:

(EE) fglrx(0): cannot init AGP

I've just done the same thing, using fglrx-6-8-0 from the ati website worked for all the kernels bar 2.6.10-5, but the "official" hoary drivers now work. People should also realise that forcing fglrx-6-8-0 to install will cause problems with mesa packages later on, did with me anyway.

Is there anyway of getting a gtk based ati-control? I wanted to install it but didn't want to install the qt library.

Allan
Hey man

All you'll need to do is shutdown x: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
remove fglrx: sudo apt-get remove fglrx-6-8-0
update xlibmesa: sudo apt-get install xlibmesa-gl
reinstall the fglrx: sudo apt-get dpkg -i --force-overwrite /path/to/file/fglrxpackagefile.deb
startx: startx

Then you'll have your mesa-gl updated, your fglrx graphics 100% and no headache ;)

Hey thanks for the reply, I'll remember that for breezy development! I'm happy enough with the hoary drivers for now, but ati do need to get em sorted, I can't restart X with these drivers and stuff like that. Beginning to wish I'd gone nvidia...

it works perfect, but unreal 2004 works slower than windows :(
glxgears gets 3034.600 fps (radeon 9600PRO with 128MB).
is this score normal for this video card?

*sorry if i had any english grammer \ spelling mistake.
english isn't my native

I think that UT2004 uses direct x rendering on windows, I could be wrong here but I'm pretty sure that was the way they went. Obviously on linux opengl is the only option, so performance is likely to be better on the windows platform. If ut2004 does use opengl on windows and I'm wrong then I'd put it down to the drivers, ati is fairly infamous for its opengl drivers!

UT2004 on windows uses Direct3d - but also has an opengl rendering path - classed as 'experimental'. So it is likely to be slower using opengl on windows as well as linux.

Well whenever I try ctrl + alt + backspace, my monitor tells me that there is no video input and I'm forced to restart the computer, I can't even get to a terminal by ctrl + alt + f1. I'm putting this down to the drivers because when I used the latest drivers from ati's website (which caused the problems with the mes library), I didn't have this problem.

that is weird.Did you apt-get your drivers?

I downloaded the xorg driver from ati. It's an rpm, used alien to make deb. and that was it?

Type dpkg --licence for copyright licence and lack of warranty (GNU GPL) .

Options marked produce a lot of output - pipe it through `less' or `more' !
root@denniss:/ #

Any ideas what the conflicting actions are?
I have not seen or written the --field or --install, so I take it that is a part of the install procedures of dpkg? :-?

It could have occured due to trying to install the i386 version. I have an AMD 64. So do I have to uninstall the i386 version first. Which did not install any way, in the first place. And how do I do that?

Thanks for any help. ](*,)

Silly me. :roll:

I did put the -overwrite in first time I tried it, but not the --force. As you can see, only one -. :o

Then I took out the -overwrite to try, but did not work either.

As Bob pointed out, I only put one - in front of force.

Thank you bobmitch. It has gone in this time, using:-
dpkg -i --force-overwrite fglrx64-6-8-0_8.10.19-2_amd64.deb.

I'm just about to reboot now.

I'll let you know if it works.

Thanks Bob.

Yup. Just do a search for 'gcc' in synaptic and install the relevant package. I`m on my xp box at the moment, so I can`t check exactly what it should be. If you don`t get it going, let us know.

You need to get the headers probably too:

sudo apt-cache search linux-headers


and find the appropraite one for your kernel.

uname -r

will tell you what kernel u have.

I think you should add "This guide is by no means complete or even correct." to your guide, I followed it step by step and ended up with 640x480 after six or seven times trying to get X to load at all. Don't use this guide people, wait for a more defined/easier one.

That is obviously a personal issue.

Most users don't have that problem. If you want a guide on individual tweaking, then write one.

If you want different resolutions go to you xorg.conf tot he section that looks like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 9200 SE (RV280)"
Monitor "AOC FT7x0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

If you run the fglrxconfig properly and choose the resolutions the way you should, then it should work, in the case you didn't do that, or it really didn't work (which happens). Then add the resolutions you want in the above section. Note they must be added in all modes. The farthest left one is the default.

Or just run fglrxconfig again, and focus carefully on the resolutions sections. If this doesn't work, then it's an individual issue and I recommend going to irc.freenode.org #ati which is more productive then blaming my guide.

How would one go about removing all the changes made to the system using this guide? I reverted back to the original xorg.conf, but if I try to follow other guides I end up with errors when I try to install a newer driver than the one we converted earlier.

I don't want a personalized guide, I want one that works.

I hope you made a backup of you xorg.conf

I made a note the users should do that. Many users don't and then it's very hard to sort it out.

You have to remove you fglrx like this:
sudo apt-get remove fglrx-6-8-0

The assuming you did a xorg backup:

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Hello All-

Tried these steps and my system locks on boot, I am guessing when it startx command is run. I have base 5.04 installed original 2.6.10-5-386 kernel running.

I have laptop HP nc6230 with ATI X300 chip.

I can copy back in my xorg.conf.backup file and get into my system.

When I say my system locks, it begins to load X and halts. Caps and Num locks do not appear to even work, I have to hard power off the system.

Please help.

Thanks!

Here is xorg.conf

Thanks Bob.

There is one problem that has occured. (Sorry to be a pain).

I installed Americas Army, the Linux version, and when I ran it, it came up with:

Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".

And then came out of it. So it didn't run.

Any ideas what or where it is going wrong?

I thought the display was "PCI:1:0:0" or whatever. I.e. 3 digit entries.

When using the fglrx driver, you must configure your resolution in the xorg.conf file - resolution changes cannot be made on-the-fly.

Look for the Subsection "Display" in the "Screen" section - specifically the "Modes" line. The order of these modes is the order X will try them until it gets one that works - make sure you have your desired mode first.

Is there any way to have the availability of "on-the-fly" resolution-change after installin fglrx for radeon? It is a bit "lame" situation that You have to "dig in" xorg.conf to make resolution change...bahhh.. :(

Dennis Snuggs

You can change "on-the-fly" by using Ctrl Alt + or -.

Mine works like that. But you must have more than one resolution choosen.

I have three I can select.

This is set when you run fglrxconfig.

okay, so I still haven't been able to get fglrx running. I'm tired of running around this problem, can anyone help me? I can post my xorg.conf and xorg log files..well maybe not the whole xorg log yet but here's the xorg.conf one.
this is what I'm getting when I do fglrxinfo:
abstractism@chiana:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.2.1)
thanks in advance for any help

wow, nobody's posted here yet

here's more of my problem. my xorg log says that my fglrx driver doesn't match with my kernel version, so openGL will not work. I can post more when I'm at my computer, but thats all I got.
someone please help.

Right abstractism.

It looks like you haven't installed the fglrx config.

Here are the top lines of my xorg.conf

# File: xorg.conf
# File generated by fglrxconfig (C) ATI Research, a substitute for xf86config.

# Note by ATI: the below copyright notice is there for servicing possibly
# pending third party rights on the file format and the instance of this file.
#

Note line two in mine, then look at line three in yours.

Yours says:
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.


"#This file was generated by dexconf"

It should be

"# File generated by fglrxconfig (C) ATI Research, a substitute for xf86config."

So it looks like you haven't installed it yet.

If you go to the beginning of this HOWTO, and follow what 'teumima' and 'bobmitch' has been saying. It should work.

The only other problem may be is that if you ARE installing the 9800. I'm not sure if the driver works for that yet.

I have only just got my 9700Pro going after 8 months!!!!

Anyway. Give the fglrx install a go, again.

What version is your Linux kernal?
Which processor are you using? (This can make a lot of difference also.)

ALSO

Quote bobmitch:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yup. Just do a search for 'gcc' in synaptic and install the relevant package.....
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From 04-10-2005 01:33 AM

{As the gcc may not be installed. If it is, ignore this bit.}


Quote teumima
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need to get the headers probably too:
sudo apt-cache search linux-headers and find the appropraite one for your kernel.

uname -r

will tell you what kernel u have.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

{Make sure you got the right kernal.}

See if it works after that.

It's ok peeps. I have found out why this doesn't work. It's to do with the sound card!

All I gotta do is try and make it load. Hmmmmm!

Dennis, for what it's worth (not much, as you`ve solved most of your issues... ;) ), the digits there are not referring to the pci slot/address, but rather to the X method of addressing displays. (ie. hostname:xserver.displaynumber )

hi
I tried to install drivers using alien. I installed headers, and after commands I had no errors. In xorg.conf I didn't have to change to driver:fglrx, it was there already. But after type "fglrxinfo I see mesa working.
Can anyone help me?
I have Radeon 9550.

This is my xorg.conf

# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and

I suppose this method won't work with the ATI Radeon Mobility X600? As it seems that fglrx works only with
- ATI Radeon 8500 / 9100
- ATI FireGL 8700 / 8800 / E1
- ATI FireGL T2
- ATI Radeon 9000
- ATI Radeon 9200
- ATI Radeon 9500

- ATI Radeon 9700
- ATI Radeon 9800
- ATI FireGL Z1 / X1 / X2
- ATI Mobility M9
- ATI Mobility FireGL 9000
- ATI Mobility M9PLUS
Or has anyone been able to use one of these for their Radeon Mobility X600 / X800?

hi i've barton 2500 on nforce2 mobo and radeon 2600 pro (agpgart and nvidia_agp loaded into kernel)

i've done all the possible... followed all the stiky messages. (2 days of frustration maybe i will return winzozz)

fglrxinfo say i'm in MESA
Xorg.0.log say loaded kernel module for "fglrx" driver
Kernel Module version matches driver.
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] DRM interface version 1.0
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] created "fglrx" driver at busid "PCI:2:0:0"
DRI initialization successfull!
glrxinfo say direct rendering: No
client glx vendor string: ATI
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa

don't know what i can do
please helpme

I was playing around my company (AT&T) Dell Latitude D600 ](*,) with Gentoo and Ubuntu. (had 1 week holiday cause of small injury). Finally i managed to get the fekin FGLRX to work on the onboard ATI 9000 mobile. Using this howto. I did install the Ubuntu 3 times on this laptop and 2 times Gentoo (once from stage 1 that one was horrible due slow compiling speed, 3 days of pure compiling). Whatever... wanna say that no problem to setu up using great

I've successfully used it with a Radeon X300. It does work with the X series.


I suppose this method won't work with the ATI Radeon Mobility X600? As it seems that fglrx works only with
- ATI Radeon 8500 / 9100
- ATI FireGL 8700 / 8800 / E1
- ATI FireGL T2
- ATI Radeon 9000
- ATI Radeon 9200
- ATI Radeon 9500
- ATI Radeon 9600
- ATI Radeon 9700
- ATI Radeon 9800
- ATI FireGL Z1 / X1 / X2
- ATI Mobility M9
- ATI Mobility FireGL 9000
- ATI Mobility M9PLUS
Or has anyone been able to use one of these for their Radeon Mobility X600 / X800?

I don't know if this problem has been posted somewhere but there are definitely too much problems with Ati drivers... At least IMHO

I've read a dozen of those Ati driver installation guides but I still can't get it functional. I have a triple monitor setup 2 are connected to my Radeon 9800 pro AGP and 1 is connected to a Radeon 7000 PCI. But for first I must get fglrx to a working state.

As soon as I'm using the fglrx, X won't start. And I've read many Tutorials, Troubleshootings etc... on several sites. Well here's my xorg.conf

I also have a second card (pci) in my computer. If somebody knows a solution, or just a hint, please post!

I had the same problem.
i got 2 monitors working by switching monitors, i.e. connecting a different monitor to my ATI graphics card and selecting it as the primary graphics card in my BIOS. Since this is my AGP card I selected "AGP" in the BIOS settings.
Then I did a "Xorg -configure" on my system. It now works with the "ati" driver and also with the "fglrx" driver.

It's because you have to install it from synaptic package manager. Alien isn't included by default.

Hello,

I was so relieved to find this but I ran into some trouble...

When I typed in
sudo alien fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm
It said "file not found" I changed the file name and typed that in but still nothing. If anyone has any suggestions, please help. Thanks.

hi,
do you want to convert this file into deb?
the correct form is

alien -i fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm

or

alien --to-deb fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm

man alien

:)

bests,

Hello again,

So the code you put was correct but is their a certain place I need to download the file to? Because right now it's on the desktop and it still says file fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm not found. Thanks

After checking out the latest git version of the radeon drivers, I was pleased with its improvement over the ones released with jaunty. However, I experienced some tearing and fill problems with my ATI Mobility Radeon x2300. So, I used the above link to downgrade my xserver, installed the necessary packages for the appropriate build environment, installed Catalyst 9.3 packages I built for jaunty (sh ./ati-blahblah-9.3.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/jaunty) and pinned all of the relevant packages in /etc/apt/preferences. Running jaunty and kde 4.3.0 right now. In Jaunty, Catalyst 9.3 experiences a touch more tearing when cycling through menus and windows than in intrepid, but nothing like what was seen with the radeon drivers. However, I experienced no tearing when using googleearth or playing any videos.

Your keyboard works just fine, you just can't see the output of it on your screen as you're typing the password. If you type in your password and press enter the command you typed in above (the one with sudo in front of it) will be executed.

I have tried exactly what was advised, after rebooting the system, i get what appears to be a graphics card crash. This also crashes the computer and am forced to restart. I dont understand what i'm doing wrong. Can anyone assist.

What you did wrong is force the installation of probably what is an incompatible driver. The person who told you to do that should have first asked if you were running an Ubuntu newer than 8.10, because in 9.04 and newer, the Xserver running is incompatible with the restricted drivers that you get from ATI.

If you're running 9.04, you will need to remove the restricted drivers and install the open source drivers in their place. See the link below and scroll down to the part about removing the fglrx driver:

Hmm, I've been having the same problem as everyone else here-- radeon x300 that works for everyday stuff, but not for full 3-D acceleration. I found an old Linux driver on the ATI site. Does anyone know if it's possible to install this on Ubuntu 9.10?

It just seems to me that there should be some kind of workaround. If I'm understanding everyone correctly, the radeon x300 used to work correctly, but now doesn't because ATI dropped support and Ubuntu no longer supports the legacy driver. But is it possible just to revert to using the relevant Ubuntu stuff from an earlier version (i.e. the version of Xserver that was used in 7.10 or whatever)?

I'm a complete newbie to this, but it would be nice to get my graphics working fully.

I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.1 and like it. But I want to use the ATI drivers for my video card, X1900 radeon. The recommene linux driver for this card is:
ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64

So I downloaed it and read the install instructions and issued this command in terminal:
sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic
Well, this is what ubuntu did:

Created directory fglrx-install.JLlQi2

So, I googled and read and googled and read... and cannot seem to find a good solution. There's this page that says I have to downgrade my kernel

but do i really want to do this?

Can anyone one point me to the right thread?

Hi bwanaaa,

I'm afraid I won't be of any direct help to you. Hopefully you've already found a solution elsewhere, on this, or a different forum.

I haven't had a working fglrx since intrepid (8.10). I was having so many other problems with jaunty that I just gave up on trying to get ati's driver to work. Since I upgraded to karmic yesterday, I gave it another shot, and no joy. I haven't had time yet to venture through the various ati threads (this is my first in months), but I'm sure you'll find one more recent than this one if you use the forum's search function.

Good luck!

Oh, check the driver section at ati's site for a wiki or something. It occurs to me that there used to be a helpful installation guide. The one I saw is likely not current, but they may have updated it.
