    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    MoreOrLess,

    Thanks. I tried the trick (mentioned in the article) of removing xorg.conf altogether, without any luck. I also tried making a minimal xorg.conf, with the same result (although it was such a minimal file it probably counted for nothing.) I also tried removing the fglrx installation and re-doing it, and it hangs in the same place again.

    The error log you mention (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) looks like this (sorry, it's a long file.)

    Code:

    [    46.106] AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0
    Is this so? Any ideas on how to proceed from here? (I'll do some googling, but if you know the answer then please do let me know!)

    Thanks, again, for your help.

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    kernel module (fglrx.ko) may be missing or incompatible
    That's the issue. Check is the module exists:
    Code:
    sudo modinfo fglrx
    If it spits out info, then try and load it manually (Ctrl+Alt+F2)
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm stop
    sudo modprobe -v fglrx

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    MoreOrLess,

    Thanks.

    $ sudo modinfo fglrx

    ... spat out a LOT of info.

    The next command was for lightdm, but I'm running KDE so changed it to kdm. This made it:

    $ sudo service kdm stop

    (I presume this was correct?) It told me "kdm stop/waiting".

    The last one:

    $ sudo modprobe -v fglrx

    .. told me that "WARNING: Not loading blacklisted module fglrx
    FATAL: Module fglrx not found."

    So it looks like it is looking for fglrx. (Here I'm perplexed; I thought that fglrx was the open-source driver for ATI cards, and I was trying to replace the open-source one with the proprietry one. Have I mis-understood something?)

    Oh - I'm not sure whether this is relevant (I think it isn't), but I am running the above commands from an SSH session on another machine; I have the broken machine in front of me (showing "* Checking battery state ... [OK]") but have SSH'ed to it from my laptop and it allows me to copy and paste commands, rather than using a TTY terminal which doesn't. Does this change things?

    Thanks again for your help.

    Huh? fglrx is the module for the proprietary fglrx/Catalyst driver. I'm not sure why you have it blacklisted (look at files in /etc/modprobe.d).

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    In /etc/modprobe.d I do have a file "fglrx.conf" listed ... is this relevant?
    (The full list of everything in there is thus:

    alsa-base.conf blacklist-local.conf
    blacklist-ath_pci.conf blacklist-modem.conf
    blacklist.conf blacklist-oss.conf
    blacklist-cups-usblp.conf blacklist-rare-network.conf
    blacklist-firewire.conf blacklist-watchdog.conf
    blacklist-framebuffer.conf fglrx.conf

    )

    I'll try renaming fglrx.conf and see if it makes any difference ...

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    ... opening the file fglrx.conf gives the contents as being like this:

    Code:
    # This file was installed by fglrx
    # Do not edit this file manually
    
    blacklist radeon
    alias fglrx fglrx
    alias radeon off
    alias lbm-radeon off
    Any help?

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    ... and another update. Renaming /etc/modprobe.d/fglrx.conf to fglrx.conf.old has made no difference - it still hangs at the same point.

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    ... and another update. I discovered that there was a file in that directory called "blacklist-local.conf", which has the line "blacklist fglrx" in it. I don't know how this got there, or why it was there, but I #-ed it out and re-started. And it booted!

    Typing;

    $ fglrxinfo

    in gives this:

    Code:
    ogp@desktop:/etc/modprobe.d$ fglrxinfo
    display: :0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 3300 Graphics
    OpenGL version string: 3.3.11251 Compatibility Profile Context
    Does this mean I am using the latest driver?

    I have also read about the fgl_glxgears test. I've never run this before, but if I do this then I get the animated gears-in-a-box picture (new to me, but I expect you have seen it dizens of times before), and a report of a framerate of between 175 and 200fps. Interestingly, if I move the mouse between windows (sloppy focus), I can make this drop dramatically - down to 1.400fps (yes, 7 frames in 5 seconds) - every time you change the focus between windows it seems to freeze the computer for a short while. Is this normal?

    So, it's working - very many thanks for your help MoreOrLess. I guess what I need to find out now is whether this has made the computer usable. (The screen effects were making it feel very ropey; I have just used a client's 4-year-old Dell with MS Vista on it, and the screen effects on that were silky-smooth and utterly effortless - making me wonder whether I should be going back to M$; hopefully this new screen driver will change things for the better!)

    Thanks again MoreOrLess. I'll mark this thread as solved.

    Re: Video card - need a simple explanation (Radeon HD3300)

    I know this thread is 'Solved', but there is perhaps a small update.

    The reason I was fussing around with drivers for my machine was because it ran badly. Someone suggested that NVidia graphics work much better on Ubuntu and ATI ones, and I have just bought a Gigabyte GeForce GV-NX66256DP card to replace the ATI Radeon HD3300 on-board graphics.

    The numbers mean nothing to me, but the machine has been transformed by the new card; it's snappier, the screen is much crisper, no nasty screen artefacts, window animations are smooth and even and it seems to have lowered the CPU effort as well. To say it is an improvement is an understatement - I just wish I had spent that £5 three years ago!

    Thanks again for your help.

    Oli.

    Yeap. Looked into /var/log/Xorg.0.log for messages and warnings and found that fglrx was indeed blacklisted.

    Removed the blacklisted line in the file your suggested and rebooted. WORKS !!!

    Thanks.
