ATI Radeon X1050 PCI Express graphics driver?


I'm trying to find a Linux driver compaitble with the ATI Radeon X1050 256MB PCI Express Graphics card. I've tried all of the possible "generic" drivers that I can find in Slackware and also there is no Linux driver for the card on the ATI site. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Below are some of the details of my system configuration. I'll be happy to provide other information as needed.

Working with VESA driver

Thanks for your response. I had posted my xorg.conf but the message was too long.
I suppose I should have just posted a second message.
I was able to get the card working with the VESA driver (choice #0).
I haven't tested higher than 800 x 600 resolution but I don't expect a problem.

Here is the xorg.conf file for the card to work with the VESA driver.

First step: replace
Code:
    Driver      "vesa"
with
Code:
    Driver      "ati"
or
Code:
    Driver      "radeon"
Next step: read

Thank you for the suggestions.
Neither ATI nor Radeon works, but VESA does work.
So I'm using the VESA driver and it seems to do everything that I need.

The unfortunate fact is that ATI has made the decision to offer Linux support for only part of their full product line. There are Linux drivers for some of their cards, but not all. This situation is an ATI business decision, not a Linux issue.

Regardless, it sounds as though you might need to install the radeon driver. I may not be interpreting your post correctly, but if you have just edited xorg.conf to replace the word "vesa" with "radeon" or "ati", that won't work.

Two suggestions:

1. You can manually rerun the xorg configuration step, which will allow you to specify both the card and desired resolution settings, and the radeon driver should be an option. As root
Code:
xorgconfig
2. If that doesn't work, the following links might be helpful
http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ATI_Drivers

Good luck with it. I personally have been in this exact same situation, and perhaps it was just my own ignorance or user error on my part, but about 2 years ago I spent countless hours trying to get this to work, and the only result was total failure and frustration. I solved the problem by throwing out the ATI card and switching to a video card manufacturer who does offer solid Linux support. Problem solved, and installing the Linux drivers took all of about two or three minutes total, including the time needed to download them and read the installation instructions. Just my 2 cents, YMMV

The X1050 is a renamed X550; see this article. It's based on the old r300 family and will work with the "radeon" driver; you just need to force the PCI ID to one that your old version of Xorg recognizes:

Driver "radeon"
ChipID 0x5B60

Unfortunately that driver doesn't work with the card. The VESA driver does work.

It should work if you force the ChipID. Did you actually try it? Put the ChipID line in your xorg.conf right below the Driver line, exactly as it is in my previous message.

Hey, thanks Alex. I didn't realize that the ChipID option was there.
It does work with the "radeon" driver and the ChipID option.
I apologize because I should have read more carefully.

works for me also

Gee whiz! This worked fine for me also.

I'd been trying to get my Envision G22LWk (1680x1050) working for days
with an Intel on board 915G graphics card. Never did get it working.

So today I bought a Diamond Stealth X550 for $80 and got my
monitor working in about 20 minutes, thanks to above info.

Thanks very much!
