    Well, that means I have 3 months for getting my OpenCL code working on it.
    Depending on that outcome we will decide whether it is cost efficient to stick with CPU's or if we have code paths that profit from GPUs.

    • I forgot to mention doobiest and Syon from the Ubuntuforums:
      http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1401172
      Syon could get the card working in his box with Windows 7, but not on Ubuntu.
      So it seems not BIOS related.

        You were right and it didn't solve the problem for me.
        The weirdest thing is that everything worked fine prior to catalyst 9.9. I didn't change any hardware/firmware/etc. just the fglrx driver and X just doesn't work.
        I can also add that a long time ago I even completed Linux Crew Survey reporting the bug but no one contacted me with any feedback.

        • The Catalyst Crew Survey is one-way, I'm pretty sure the form says there will be no response. Bugs should be filed at ati.cchtml.com - there are a couple there already so probably better to update one of those with current information, and probably a bit of cleanup would help.

          Ticket #1794 has most of the good information but neither the title nor any of the comments indicate that the problem is specific to the NForce430; ticket #1700 explicitly mentions the NForce chipset but all the information is in a ticket on another system which has been closed.

            Well, you're right, the title doesn't mention the nForce4 chipset - I've fixed that now.
            But I don't understand the rest of your response. I write in the second sentence of the first post of that Bug report that I have an nForce4 chipset. As there are probably more of them out there, I thought it is more convenient to provide PCI IDs. I provide all of them, which I think are relevant
            (simple lspci output) in the first post.

            That the cause of the hang is most likely due to the chipset can be proven by looking at the lspci output of the people around here. They share the same symptoms AND the same chipset down to the PCI ids. Therefore I think that this is the cause of all evil...
            I don't think that ticket #1700 is relevant because the reporter gets explicit messages from the kernel that his BIOS is providing faulty MTRR ranges. This is, at least for me, not the case here.

            So thanks for your response and your help in getting the report in shape so that we and AMD can nail that issue down and fix it.

            • Did you try

              rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
              aticonfig --initial --nobackup

                    1. Buy motherboard with another chipset even newer nforce chipsets work well, driver only don't work with nforce430 (great job amd )
                    2. Use windows and latest cat drivers.
                    Pray that amd will fix it in 10.7
                    Wow... I really havent read this before posting the log... I guess I'm gonna have to keep using Windows, then. I was already beginning to think this could be an issue with the 4890.

                    Thanks for the heads up.

                    • I'm seeing the same as giulio, just replaced with a Radeon 5770.

                      @giulio, You might want to try catalyst 9.8 and post your results. If I remember correctly, Phoen1x got his card working that way.

                      • bridgman: ATI should probably update the release notes:
                        Software driver support for ATI FireGLTM, Integrated,
                        MobilityTM and Desktop products prior to the ATI RadeonTM 9500 is
                        available from www.amd.com.

                          Thanks I guess I am in too. Same chipset, same famous last line by xorg
                          Newest driver does not work too.

                          - SS.

                          • I am unable to edit my post as time limit has expired. So adding that my motherboard is M2NPV-VM by ASUS. (Stock BIOS - never found the need to upgrade it)

                            • The 10.6 driver works with xorg-server 1.8 without a version patch! The module loads successfully!

                              • Display glitches

                                Although I appreciate the speed improvements (especially resizing windows with compiz), there is at least one trade-off with Nautilus on Karmic. If I sort the detailed list and mousewheel or scroll then the list gets corrupted.



                                Looks like a lazy update behaviour or ignoring invalid flags. Interestingly windows is updated and corrected by pressing Alt-key. Did I miss any compiz setting?

                                Anyway 10.06 feels like new chips, hopefully more improvments will not get scrapped by the sales department.
