Thread: ATI Radeon HD 3670 and Ubuntu

  1. #11

    Re: ATI Radeon HD 3670 and Ubuntu

    According to this http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...1&lang=English

    Catalyst beyond 9.3 will not support the 1250. So it kind of looks to me like I'd either need to run 9.3 on my own or accept the open source driver if I were to upgrade to 9.04.

    In short the proprietary driver which I need for 3D support makes most graphics operations unstable when used with an external screen and resume from sleep also does not work.
    krippa, did you get suspend to disk working. I can not suspend or hibernate. The machine goes to sleep just fine, but can't resume; when I try to restart I get a cursor on a black screen.

    Nope, same behavior with hibernate, I can only see the unlock-screen as an out of focus gray square and the computer does not respond to anything. Everything up until that seems to be going fine, e.g. going to sleep etc... Disabling the driver solves the problem but I want the 3D. I guess my best bet is to wait for release 9.5 of the driver.

    By the way, is there a way to check which version is installed? Will the 9.5 automatically be downloaded and added as an option when it is available or will I have to download it manually?

    Red face Re: ATI Radeon HD 3670 and Ubuntu

    I have an ATI mobility Radeon 3400 in Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 and I have noticed that enabling the ATI driver degrades performance on the following cases:

    1-> When restoring a minimized window.
    2-> When switching video to full screen.

    Without the ATI driver restoring a window takes less than a second. Switching to full screen video is also very fast.

    But with the ATI hardware driver it can take 2-3 seconds to restore a minimised window and 4-5 seconds to switch to full screen video using VLC.

    I also have compiz enabled. Does anybody know how to fix this issue?
    thanks in advance!

    No suspend here either... I also have a dell studio xps 16, with ATI Radeon HD 3670 and with the catalyst 9.4 drivers installed on intrepid. Before I installed the drivers, suspend worked (except for the touchpad). With the drivers and compiz, I get a black screen when resuming. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace has no effect (I have it enabled). Trying to switch to Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or any other) doesn't work either.

    Krippa, I don't know how to check which version is installed. I would also like to know that.

    To install a new version, I guess you have to do it manually. I did it, according to the how to, for upgrading from 9.3 to 9.4 and it worked perfectly without having uninstalled the previous version.

    INTEPEGASUS, I don't have anything like that here. I am using catalyst 9.4 in intrepid, with compiz, and I am glad, apart from the suspend and some video issues. The video issues are solved if I fall back to metacity.

    I also have this issue. I read on another thread that it is caused by old configs in your home directory. try creating a new user and see if the problem persists.

    I tried to use the open source drivers and noticed that my graphics card was generating a ton of heat ~60C. I guess there are no good options for us xps studio 16 owners yet...

    Re: ATI Radeon HD 3670 and Ubuntu

    Hello mates!
    I'm planning to get a new laptop with a HD3670 and run ubuntu but I'm kinda worried seeing all these posts. Question: How are things back on 8.10 with this card? I'm was running 8.10 with a X1600 and it runs great, "upgraded" to 9.04 and some of my opengl apps stopped working. I'm sure I can stick with 8.04 for awhile

    Thanks!

    Alvin

    Thanks for the replies!

    Compiz is causing the issue. Metacity improves the performance a lot. However compiz is one of the reasons I switched to Linux.

    Is it possible to fix the slow performance in compiz? I remember it was working fine with an older version.

    Maybe compiz 0.7? will work better...

    Sorry, I just noticed it might not be obvious: the Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+Backspace don't work only when in the black screen I get after suspending. Otherwise they work fine.

    gallenwolf, I havent tried 9.04, but I am using 8.10 and I am glad with it. The only trouble I have is this suspend thing and I don't know if that is due to the ati drivers or to something compiz related. I didn't try dual monitor either and, from what I hear, that might be an issue.

    cheers
