XFree86 Version 4.3.0- ATI and Radeon Drivers Don't Work?
 
I am running Red Hat 9 with a ATI Radeon 7500 graphics chip.

I can only get X to start my modifying the XF86Config file to point the driver to 'vesa'. When I try to change it to 'ATI' or 'radeon', neither will load X. Both have 3D accel and I woud really like to know what's wrong ;)

Apparently the radeon driver SHOULD work, do I need to add any options or anything?

Thanks.

Post your XF86Config-4 file, and we'll troubleshoot from there.

Also, post the exact errors you're getting from the startx or xinit commands.

Check out my thread in the "Member Success Stories" section, I've successfully gotten my Radeon 9000 Pro working on 4.3.0 in Debian. Mind you, it's a different card and different distribution, but the workings are generally the same.

To clarify... I know the stock XFree "radeon" driver worked for me, but without 3d accelleration.

Let's work from here:)

Thanks man :)

Actually, I am working from the XF86Config, not -4. So I'll put that guy up here:

Notice the driver 'vesa'. If I change that to the ati driver or the Radeon driver than I get an error and X will not start. I'll ed it the error into this post shortly :)


EDIT: Here is the error, enjoy :p

Quote:

Radeon (0): No valid mode found for this DFP/LCD

Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
EDIT2: I forgot to share, the only thing that I have edited in this is the driver that I am using for my graphics card. I changed it from 'radeon' to 'vesa', other than that it is the one generated by the config uitility.

What does DisplaySize 320 240 do?

You might want to try the ATI fglrx drivers too. There's probably an rpm or whatever for them for your dist. "ati-drivers" under gentoo.

UnTamed 07-09-2003 08:04 PM

Fglrx [...Ati's closed source drivers] don't support the 7500, only 8500 and up.

Although you'll need Load "dri" in Section "Modules" in order to get 3d accel, your error points to a wrong monitor config,
...sorry I don't know **** about LCDs, but your 2 options in Section "Device" look suspicious.

For one thing, they're actually not set, you might as well comment them out,
but chances are assigning them the right values would be more helpfull. :D
Also make sure hsync and vsync are correct.

Electro 07-09-2003 08:32 PM

Go to gatos site and download the right package for your X Window server. Also look for howto documents on how to install gatos packages. If you have video capture download both drm and km. The how to should have some information how to install those packages too.

Gatos had a link to someone's site on how to install gatos packages and setting up the Radeon cards. I try finding the link for several days but I can not find the link anymore. I'll do some deeper searches on the internet. I don't remember if I save the page in a HTML archive file. If I find the page I'll put in a pdf or something and put it on my web site.

Gatos - http://gatos.sourceforge.net

hairston4 07-09-2003 08:33 PM

Horizontal and Vertical Sync are correct.

I now have no options and I have load "dri" under module.

Still no worky, but I probably made progress. Any more things I should know?

Electro 07-09-2003 08:44 PM

I found the link
http://www.reades.com/radeon.html

Its for Mandrake but it should not be any different for other distributions.

I used the info from this site to get 3D acceleration on my AIW Radeon 8500DV. The key to it is recompiling the kernel without some outdated Radeon and DRI support (or something like that...the guide gives great instructions).

^XF86Config-4 that I copied to RH. I changed the driver 'radeon' to 'vesa'...so I could post :)

ERRORS (when driver = radeon)

(EE)RADEON(0): No valid mode found for CRTC2 clone

(EE)RADEON(0): No valid mode found for this DFP/LCD]
(EE)Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuratio

This is all I have in my XF86Config, and I am running XFree 4.3.0.

Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "radeon"
EndSection


Replace Identifier "Radeon" with Identifier "Videocard0" of course, to keep it like in your XF86Config. But try commenting everything else out and just using the driver line, with the radeon driver instead of vesa.

I fixed the problem! It's called Debian :p

THanks guys.
