Ati 64bit proprietary drivers crash linux


Well I finally found a good way to crash linux. Just install these drivers.

https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...e&folderID=300

I have serious problems with my ati radeon 9600.

Random X crashes
Complete lockup on 3d games.(I can't even switch to text terminal)

Heres what I've tried so far, and they all failed.


enable/disable useinternalagp
increase fan speed just to make sure my case temperature was normal (its around 40 degrees celcius)

Might help if you told us what distro and kernel you're using. Many have precompiled drivers and kernel fglrx modules which seem to simplify things considerably.

My Debian AMD64 works like a dream.

Is there anything specific that makes X crash?

Unless I'm very mistaken, nothing in that xorg.log seems to indicate a problem (there's no (EE) or (WW) flags).

Also, which games? And do fgl_glxgears and glx_gears work at reasonable frame rates? glxinfo might also have some useful info.

I know it can be hard to do sometimes, but if you can determine exactly what crashes X and when, that should help a lot.

Steve

PS, this isn't something I know very well, but aren't most computers designed to run under 30 or at most 35 degrees celcius?

Standard running temp for processors(modern) is 40-50c which means that is a fully nonissue.

but the DRM errors mean the DRI/DRM are not working right away, but as you can tell they are working. I would run a benchmark test back to back for a few hours, see if you can get a crash. You may have instability issues in the card(aka defective card)

Maybe an installation problem?

Does the ATi utility (now in the X menu somewhere) states that your card has OpenGL working?

How I installed :

Start a terminal in X,
get as root (su -)
start your ati drivers (./ati...)
use the automatic installation

then do

ldconfig
aticonfig --initial (add "=dual-head" for 2 screens)
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx

in a terminal under X, else it won't work.

edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf as root,
put a square (#) in front of Load "dri" of Section "Modules".

do Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

If screen blank, under Section "Screen" with Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]", change Monitor to "Monitor0"
