hello, LQ users.
I got an ATI radeon 9700 card, this is not yet another hardware acceleration thread...
As mentioned in another thread, I care more about my computer working, then I care about those extra widgets I don't use everyday. I mainly play 2d games under linux, wesnoth is good enough for me at the moment
Whenever my card reactivates, (from switching to console 12 to X, or X to 1, or any change in tty), every now and then, the image is disorganized, for example, you can clearly discern lines from another, and one line might be three lines later, and so on and so forth for all the other lines (they are not where they should be), and the screen randomly puts these lines all over the place. The image is all scrabled. You still can see what is happening, but not much...
To fix this temporarily, I switch from X to tty12, and from tty12 to X, and it's done... or... Alt+sysrq+u and o .
usually, this prints on the /var/log/messages
Nov 4 07:20:15 localhost [fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 7786 using kerne
l context 0
and in other distributions, I get a mtrr overlap. I'm running the radeon framebuffer...
What I want is:
the radeon frame buffer running, not vesa.
X to work without acceleration, for now, maybe I'll activate it later
those lines to be where they should be...
