  • Unsupported Hardware watermark

    Hello, I have an xfx Radeon HD 5770 card, and I know its not fully supported by the latest fglrx yet, but modesetting and 3d works to a degree. Is there a way to get rid of the AMD Unsupported Hardware watermark, as I know its not fully supported?

    DRIVER=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
     sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER

      Wow, gross. I thought 9.10 was supposed to add 5750 and 5770 support. In any case many thanks. I have ubuntu 9.10 (catalyst and ubuntu) with a 5770 and that fixed the problem. The card seems okay so far. Seems kinda silly to have to binary hack the driver, but otherwise video playback, compiz, and related works. I'm having some cursor problems on my dual head when I get near certain areas of the screen the cursor disappears.

      Thanks again.

                The problem is when you run the ati-installer purely on U and then install fglrx via jockey/apt your system will break. Somebody reported that my script fixed it. Be sure that you NEVER run the ati installer on U again. Only via

                          i think i solve my problem:
                          i open a terminal console and write:

                          gksudo synaptic

                          it pop a window and i write fglrx in search box and see wich fglrx was if an "broken package" icon, i sellected it, right click on "remove complete" then "apply" and it fix.
                          still dont have the watermark (but i solve it before on version 9.4) the grafics still fine and the broken package erro gone!! now i can install other things.

                          i hope i did it right. could you verify if this fix well? or it just a way to miss the problem?

                          thnks for helping
