    Re: ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470

    I would like to buy a notebook with that video card but I'm not sure that it works fine on linux ubuntu 10.04 or 9.10.
    @hai2lp: What did you do in order to make it works on 9.10? Is 3D acceleration enabled on your system? compiz?
    thank you very much!!

    @pumax
    Surely it's work fine with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic edition
    Do apt-get update and upgrade first
    And exactly follow the step on crypto post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1430357
    All visual capability are working including compiz too...

    But the bad thing is after i try on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS compiz still did not work, and graphics became slower. Scrolling started to lag too much and dragging windows is very slow

    So, if I was to downgrade to 9.10, and install the driver this way, would the 3D acceleration work? Right now, I can only use basic Compiz Effects, and gaming just flat out doesn't work.

    I would avoid this card until AMD or Ubuntu provides better drivers.

    @dkartik: Which driver has you installed?
    Is the voice value "Direct Rendering" set to "yes"?

    @pumax: I have installed the default driver from the lucid repository. Looking at my xorg.conf (which I'm assuming is where I enable that option) I don't see it listed there. I'll attach a copy of my xorg.conf below, and see if that gives you any more insight to my problem.

    I apologize for my sluggishness, it's been a couple of years now since I had my own shiny machine to mess around with linux on, so my ability to know what to look for has diminished greatly.

    Code:
    Section "Files"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
            Load  "glx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerFlags"
            Option      "Xinerama" "off"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
            Identifier  "Default Device"
            Driver      "fglrx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Default Screen"
            DefaultDepth     24
    EndSection

    Re: ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470

    I think that 3D acceleration is enabled automatically if the driver supports it!
    Try to see if it is enabled in this way:
    Open the Terminal and type:
    glxinfo | grep direct
    see the voice:
    direct rendering (it may be yes or not)

    Games don't work well...ok...: Have you tried flat out?
    What can't you enable on compiz?
    Does vga out work (external monitor)?
    Other problems?

    I read somewhere that people are able to run compiz without problem after driver installation from ubuntu: administration->hardware driver.

    I'not able to help you with configuration file i'm sorry.

    Re: ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470

    Ubuntu 10.04 finally supports ATI Mobility 5470. I made a fresh install yesterday. Today, it showed me a message that I needed to activate some amd/ati drivers. I hit OK, then it installed some files and requested a reboot.

    After reboot, Compiz was fully functional, and all effects work very smoothly.

    Ubuntu rocks!
