Problems installing ATI Radeon HD 4650 drivers on Debian AMD64
I'm attempting to install a debian lenny on my pc:
Asus M2N78 Pro (AM2+ socket)
AMD64 Phenom II 9950 (quadcore)
8gb dualchannel ram
ati radeon HD 4650 512mb
What I did:
I installed Debian Lenny AMD64 with a net-install disk.
installed the base, standard and desktop.
once the installation is done, and the login screen should be shown, I get a "out of range" notice on my monitors (I use 2 20" tft screens)
after going to prompt, and installing the latest ati drivers (ATI Catalyst™ 9.6 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver (also for 64bit system)) from a usb, I reboot and now I can log onto the system
After some reboots and changes in the catalyst software I get my desktop spread across the 2 screens.
But, moving windows across the screen, or scrolling in web pages or anything, makes the screen flash, and move with gaps (like on a windows machine with no video drivers)
how can I fix this? considering that I'm still rather new to the whole linux idea.
If I need to give more information about anything, feel free to ask, and I'll paste as soon as possible
thx in advance
Have a look here:
Thx for the quick reply, but installing the driver wasn't really the problem.
I found a guide on how to install the fglrx driver (http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary)
and it works perfect now
but that brings me to my next problem
because I have 2 monitors (20" wide) I need to manually edit my xorg.conf file
Both monitors have a resolution of 1680x1050
but the 2nd screen is more like 1600x1050 (black bar on right side of screen)
although the system says it's a total of 3360x1050
I currently have:
