Problems with ATI drivers ( x1600 series card )


Hello,

I'm having some problems with ati drivers. It was working fine until i had to reboot my computer. Now, i cannot start X when using fglrx driver ( vesa works fine ).

I'm running Debian Etch and have installed it using this howto http://technowizah.com/2006/10/debia...i-drivers.html


Here is the Xorg.0.log

I think this is the problem with your configuration, but I am not 100% sure:
Quote:
(EE) fglrx(0): Given depth (16) is not supported by fglrx driver
Your xorg.conf file contains this line, which seems like it could be the cause of the problem.
Quote:
DefaultDepth 16
Which appears to relate to a screen attached to an fglrx device. I would try changing this line to 24,as so:

Quote:
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Change to:

Quote:
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
I dont think the fglrx driver supports depths below 24. It seems that xorg is reading both the screen sections from your config file, and then loading the fglrx driver, which reads the screen sections, sees the depth of 16, doesn't like it and quits with an error. If you look in the ServerLayout section at the top, you will see that you are actually using this screen ("Default Screen" 0 0), and another one. In my config file, I am only using one screen:

Quote:
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
You could also remove the default screen and see what happens. Make sure you backup first.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I have changed default depth to 24 and restarted Xorg. Now my computer freezes when i do this.

I get an black screen and cannot change to an terminal ( ctr + alt + f1 ) or ssh on my computer ( totally freezed ).

Do you know what can i do or what is causing this?

Thanks again!

Does xorg start automatically when the computer boots, or do you type startx or a similar command? If you get to a terminal when the pc boots, check the log file again, then change back to the 16 depth, or restore the backed up log file. Thinking about it, aticonfig makes a backup file too of the original xorg.conf. You could try recovering this, and then editing the file manually changing the vesa driver to fglrx (and check the depth). Another option would be if you got back to a terminal, you could run (I think this is it with debian):

Code:
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
to freshly reconfigure your xorg.conf and then try running aticonfig again, or change the file manually.If you cant get to a terminal, you may need to use single user mode (might appear in grub) to edit the file, or it may be easier if you could use a livecd of some sort, like damn small linux, mount the disk and edit the file through that.

EDIT: The backed up file from aticonfig will be at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.original-0

Hello,

I have booted up in recovery mode and changed the driver to vesa and it works now.

Do you know if this is a bug with the fglrx driver or how can i use it?

I need it to use 1440x900 resolution and use my two monitors on the same card.

Thanks,

Fernando.

Oh! You are using two monitors. I think aticonfig has an option for this:

Code:
aticonfig --help | grep dual
  --initial=dual-head
        Same as '--initial' but generate a basic dual head configuration file.
        Note:  This option is not valid if '--initial=dual-head' is specified.
        Screens start at 0.  You can use 1 for dual-head
        Screens start at 0.  You can use 1 for dual-head
        Screens start at 0.  You can use 1 for dual-head
        Set the secondary screen position for dual head.
        Enable/disable swap heads in dual-head mode.
        This option works only in dual-head mode.
       Dual head   :    aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=above
                        This command will generate a dual head configuratio
Check out aticonfig --help for more info on this. I seem to remember having a similar setup on my old 9550 card. Should work.

I am sorry but I think this one might be beyond me. Perhaps someone else could help you out on here. I am just not sure. This might be a bug with the drivers. The last drivers I used with debian that *just worked* were the 8.40.4 drivers. Since then, I have had problems with various things.

The release notes can be found here https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...ux_8.40.4.html

Hello,

I have installed the ATI Catalyst™ 7.11 version and now it's working. It seens to be a bug with the 7.12 version.

Thanks for your help.

Well, Finally I have the ATI card installed right. After reading all the disclaimers and trying 15 different "guaranteed" methods of flawless installation, I used Envy. It loaded easy, even after I goofed up and stopped it half way through.

Please, try Envy (linked), it solved all my ATI problems. I'm running Gusty on a Radeon 9600 with all the bells and whistles now. Got the cube running, wobbly windows, all sounds and graphics.

Great, well done. I found both the 7.11 and 7.12 versions of the driver to be quite buggy - especially the 7.12 version. One to keep an eye on is the RadeonHD project, which aims to implement a free and open source driver for R500 and R600 chipsets (thats the x1000 and HD 2000 cards). Theres a link here. They seem to release an update every two weeks.

Quote:
The Novell developers hope to complete 2D work on the RadeonHD driver by the end of this year.
Looks promising. I read somewhere that 3D should be there within 6 to 9 months, but dont quote me on it. Happy new year!
