Unhappy Unable to recognize 3D card....


Hi,

I do seem to have a few issues to resolve since moving to Suse 9.1.

I discovered that my 3D card is not found by Suse9.1

I have a Hercules Prophet 9000 card and a Acer 1511TFT flat panel display.
When i go to Yast and click on hardware->Graphics/Display, then the monitor goes blank and after that I have to reboot.

When I try playing a 3D game, then it tells me there is no 3D card.

I had this problem with KDE3.2.

Has anyone had similar problems...? any clue is appreciated.

thanks,
redrobin.

From what I found in google it's a ATI Radeon 9000 chip. Maybe you could try the ATI driver. But as far as I can remember, 3D and ATI was always a problem on Linux.

You should check the output of /var/log/XFree86.0.log for errors (EE), warnings (WW) and drm messages.

Hi,

the only (EE) I see are:

(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument
(==) FBDEV(0): Backing store disabled
(==) RandR enabled
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.


All other (WW)'s only complain about missing fonts.

Does the above say anything ?

thanks,
rr

Hi,

noticed the following lines in the same file:

(--) PCI:*(0:8:0) ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] rev 1, Mem @ 0xd0000000/27, 0xe0000000/16, I/O @ 0xd800/8
(--) PCI: (1:0:0) Trident Microsystems CyberBlade/i1 rev 106, Mem @ 0xdd800000/23, 0xde000000/17, 0xdd000000/23

hmm.. looks like it sees 2 cards ( 1 PCI and another onboard.....) should I diable the on-board stuff..?

thanks,
rr.

hmmm

And how can I do that easily...?

BTW: I tried installing the ATI drivers, and reconfigured, but there is no improvement in the situation. ( I did this as mentioned in a docu in this website step by step .....and finaally running startx.....)

thanks,
rr.

It's most probably the second card that interferes.

There should be an option in your BIOS. Sorry, since I don't know your system, you need to find it yourself.
