Radeon X300 problem


I'm using gentoo-2.6.11-r6 since two weeks with standard vga adapter on 1280*1024 resolution. Since I'm becoming a more expierenced user (2 weeks.....;-) I want to explore the full potential of this OS. So my aim is to get everything right as it should be; installing the right driver for my video adapter Radeon X300 with a Dell 1704FTP monitor (VGA & DVI). Actually I want to use DVI because that picture is much better than VGA!

I have used the Gentoo ATI Radeon guide http://odin.prohosting.com/wedge01/g...adeon-faq.html but it still gives problems. After boot my KDE desktop starts in a low resolution (640*480), I can login, but than is shows the KDE startup window and it freezes. I can't see the kicker, it doesn't react on any mouse clicks, it just hangs.

If somebody needs my xorg.cong of course I can post it... I don't know what to do any more any suggestions?

Thx Ezzy

Yes, posting your xorg.conf would be useful.

Well, sincerely I can not see what is wrong with your xorg.conf and my knowledge about this file is short and I have not mine here now.

But there is still hope, could you try posting your /var/log/X.log?

Hope.....

Because I don't have X.log in that directory, I send you my xdm.log. This is the log file from the current working system; NOT using the Radeon ATI driver (fglrx).. If you need the log in case I use ATI driver, let me know? There is also a longer file called xorg.0.log, let me know if you need this one aswell?

Yes, I meant your log using the ati driver, I hope we are not going to need the xorg.0.log

You not only have to install the ATI drivers, but you also have to make a manual edit to your x-windows config file...

Look for the same issue with Dell laptops on google (for instance the D810). The X300 identifies as another card by most systems... so there are some manual things that you have to do.

It apparently IS possible to get full 3D acceleration on the X300 chipset,... it's just not real easy to do.

Does fglrxconfig not provide a valid x.org for the X300 chipset???

Oh, perfect :P

I am going to start feeling lucky for the few problems I had while installing my radeon 9200 (whose chipset is unknown for me)

Guys, have the feeling that we are getting closer to the problem.
Attached my xdm.log when problem occurs (so using the ATI driver enabled xorg.conf).

When I look in my PCI setup I find the following identified graphic devices;
BusID "PCI:1:0:0" --> Being identified as "VGA compatible controller; ATI Technologies Inc RV370 5B60 [Radeon X300 PCI]
BusID "PCI:1:0:1" --> Being identified as "VGA compatible controller; ATI Technologies Inc; unknown device 5B70

Because fglrx is refering to device PCI:1:0:1 with a warning, do I need to add a section for this device?

What is the real problem here?
1. the warning?
2. the font referals?
3. error around "no such file or directory"
4. xdm error(pid5875)

Thx again for any help!

Oh, yeah.... I just looked again at my current standard VGA adapter settings. Guess what also quite some errors... Attached my xdm.log of the working KDE with standard VGA device.

Looks to me that the only conclusion here is that the warning above is pointing at the problem?

Any inputs?

Well, I'm no expert on graphics card configuration but I noticed that you have "800x600" listed as the first resolution option in the "Display" subsection of your "Screen" section. I believe X will use the first one by default - are you sure it was 600x480? You could try putting the resolution that matches your panel resolution first.

Also, you are definitely barking up the wrong tree with the xdm.log file. Xdm is just the display manager (what gives you the little box to type your username and password in when you log on). What you want for debugging is the xorg.0.log file.

Good luck in debugging this. I have a vested interest since I am thinking of buying a Thinkpad T43 that uses the X300. Thanks for being a guinea pig

You are right about the resolution, in the meanwhile I changed the Display section of xorg.conf;
---
Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection section in;
---

but gives unfortunately the same results...

After a new kernel (gentoo2.6.11-r6) compilation my AGP is working as well but I am still in shit.... The problem is that after the initial boot the system hangs with a complete black screen...

My xdm.log when problem occurs;

(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.11-gentoo-r6/video/fglrx.ko): Operation not permitted

My result of fglrxinfo;

My output of dmesg | grep agp;

Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel 915G Chipset.

Help?

How can I switch to ATI OpenGL libraries (i have used opengl-update ati already)?
