ATI Radeon IGP 340M 3d acceleration


I used to use Mandrake 10 and got 3d working with it, but have not been able to do so with Libranet 2.8.1. Does anybody have any suggestions? I am using kernel 2.4.26 (with IGP support compiled in) and xfree86 4.3 (with IGP support added also).

If you could tell me how you did this in Mandrake I'd appreciate it. I'm not using MDK but do have the exact same video card and can't get 3d acceleration working yet. Either step by step or a general workthrough would be appreciated.

By following this:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...icle&artid=179

It worked perfectly. I imagine it would work with SuSE also. The problem I have is that I don't have xorg. That seems to be required regardless of what the instructions at this link say. I think it will be worthwhile to pursue xorg in Debian. I'll post here my results when I have any.

Ya know I completely forgot that my distro is listed as Suse. I haven't really worked with it since I first signed up here, right now you could say I'm "In transition" when it comes to distros. I was/am using mepis which is debian based and might consider libranet (ok this was one of the few places I could find anything about that video card). I just would really like to get it running is my main thing. However the directions there are pretty odd considering I've been told that you really don't need the dri and mesa and such because it is in the xfree86 (also xorg I think). Kinda odd.

Don't know if this will help, but here are ATI drivers compiled for Debian.

uteck-
Unfortunately those drivers don't cover this card. The IGP 340M is the Radeon Mobility U2.

diensthunds-
look at the libranet support database (at libranet.com) and they have a driver for this card, no 3d but the card works with the ati driver.

I thought your alias looked familiar...recognized you from mepislovers.org....I WAS using mepis also (great distro) but it screwed up my clock (the system clock ran ultra slow) I never got resolution on that problem so I ended up going to Libranet...love it

yup that would be me, and sounds like you have the same problem i have with the system clock, which is why I'm looking for another distro to use. i love mepis but until Warren and Matt get the system clock working corectlly i just can't use it. i have to have correct time stamps on everything. I'm interested to give libranet a whirl. I'm hoping that it will be as easy to work with as Mepis is. Exspecially when it comes to doing updates. i have my ati card working now with no 3d but that is what i'm ultimately after is getting the 3d support. Stupid intigrated video card..........grrrrrrrrrrrr.
Also I'm wandering if you got things like the built in modem working. Your specs sound pretty close to what I have on my laptop.

For your problems with the clock I used ntp to set the time. This seemed to fix my time slippage problem with MEPIS.

The problem is that I have a laptop that's not always connected to the internet, so ntp doesn't do much good there. I did have a script to run when I was connected. It used ntp to get the correct time and adjtimex to adjust the frequency and tick of the system clock. It was good as long as I was connected, but when I restarted had to go through the whole thing again. Only a temporary fix.

Also this dosn't address the true issue of why is the system clock messed up in the first place?

Everybody comes up with the same bandaid...use ntp, but never a solution (or even a reason) for the real problem.

Actually I believe I know what part of the problem is, obviously it is in the system clock itself, why it dosn't read the hardware clocks ticks correctly I don't know but the reason the hardware clock gets messed up is because the system syncs the software clock and the hardware clock on shutdown. (ok I know that's obvious) but it at least it narrows the prob down a bit. Somewhere in the system clock lies the issue, but I'm no programer so where exactly it lies I don't know.

It's for Warren to hammer out I suppose, because I'm no programmer either.
