  • HD2400pro agp + fglrx = don't work

    Hello,

    I purchase a HD2400 pro AGP

    I try to install (both manually and with Envy) fglrx drivers.

    With all version tested, the display doesn't work;
    I have this error:

    Code:
    >> dmesg | grep fglrx
    [ 35.722817] fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
    [ 35.726298] [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 928 MBytes.
    [ 35.726317] [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.37.6 [May 25 2007] on minor 0
    [ 22.568000] [fglrx:firegl_cail_init] *ERROR* CAIL: CAILEarlyASICInit failed, error 1
    [ 22.568000] [fglrx:firegl_init_asic] *ERROR* Failed to initialize ASIC.
    [ 23.664000] [fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 5006 using kernel context 0

    I post a ticket on fglrx driver feedback on AMD support website, but I think I won't have any response.

    If somebody have a HD2400Pro AGP that works with fglrx I would like its xorg.conf file

    I know that HD2400Pro PciExpress are working with AMD Driver.

    Actually I'm using Radeon HD driver but video playback
    doesn't works well. I hope 2D acceleration will work soon.

    If somebody could help me

    Best Regards

    Please use a more recent driver. The log states you're using 8.37 which does not have R600 support.
    8.433 (aka 7.11) is the most current version.

      I haven't noticed this problem;

      I copy this trace after installing manually the 7.11 fglrx driver

      My problem became more and more strange

        Oh, so the kernel module was loaded while you installed the new
        driver. Switch to thext console (press ctrl-alt-f1), kill X, remove the kernel module ('rmmod fglrx') and re-install the driver.

        Or, give Kano's excellent debian install script a try, it does
        all of the above for you:

          Also, you probably suffer from the rialto 'bug'.

          So you can start pulling those hairs ...

          http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6622

          Do install 8.4333 properly first though, maybe you're gettin' lucky

            mlau was true,

            I made a bad installation of my fglrx driver.
            maybe a problem with restricted drivers (I don't know)

            With the good fglrx version installed, I had an IRQ or a problem like that. I modified some features in my BIOS (some stuff in AGP part of the bios).

            Now The fglrx driver is loaded, fglrxinfo show that all is installed correctly; but when I launch glxgears, I have a system freeze.

            Also when I play a video, I have a lot of aliasing.

            Maybe the problem come from my xorg.conf file. I will check it when I'll come back home.

            I have an other problem since I've installed this graphic card; My network card stop working after a certain amount of time. I don't know if it is a material conflict, or if my network card is dying.


            Thank you for you're help

            Best Regards

              As AGP is a dying technology I would suggest to return it and get a PCI-E board instead. In any case you lose money when you upgrade the next part, you can not reuse a board or the gfx card. But at least PCI-E is better supported.

                i would guess he got the AGP for a reason? afaik no motherboards have both pci express and agp, so it would be quite hard to replace only the graphics card....

                  There are some lowend boards with AGP+PCI-E, but for stability reasons I would not use em.

                    Hello,
                    I choose an AGP card because my previous ATI 9800 is dead.

                    My motherboard + ram + CPU works well, I don't want to change all my hardware just for a graphic card.

                    It's like changing a car when you have to change only pneumatic tires.

                    I saw that the HD2400 pro supports Hdmi + Hdmi sound;

                    I look too fast on Linux forum about Hd2400 pro support. Pci Express works well but not on AGP. It's a mistake

                    Best Regards

                        Hello,
                        I use both:
                        DVI and VGA.

                        I got the fglrx driver partially working:
                        my screens are detected, with a correct resolution,

                        The Fullscreen Video are very bad, the 2d overlay accelerator seems not working.

                        I got a system freeze when i try to run a 3D application (glxgears).

                        I think that your system freeze is due to AIGLX extension: it try to start 3D on your card and cause a system freeze.

                        you should add

                        Section "ServerFlags"
                        Option "AIGLX" "off"
                        EndSection

                        Section "Extensions"
                        Option "Composite" "Disable"
                        EndSection

                        on your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

                        Note:

                        I have 3D and video overlay working on windows (only with 7.10 amd driver) New driver doesn't support the PCI-E to AGP bridge (used in my graphic card)

                        I hope that radeonhd with working 2d acceleration + 3d will be available soon.

                        Best regards

                        Frich

                          You may have few options to NOT be doing that. AGP cards are about a year or so from being pulled completely from the market. As a bus, it's "okay" but the PCI-E interface is better overall and everything in creation has went to it. You're going to find that while your hardware is working, unless you want to go with older tech, the AGP motherboard is a liability.

                          AMD's edge bridge, the Rialto, has had issues with Linux operation for a while now on their proprietary driver. NVidia's got decent AGP parts but they compare more with the R500 parts in performance and ability- not the same as the R600 you've bought and having problems with.

                          Right now, there's several options to you:

                          Ride it out, hoping that AMD gets their act together or the FOSS crowd beats them to it. You may be waiting a long while for that one.

                          Buy a 7800GS from BFG Tech or one of the other companies using an NVidia part (which does seem to work right on Linux and is an AGP part...)

                          or...

                          Buy a whole new motherboard, CPU, RAM, etc. and side step the issue of a deprecated bus spec and be able to pick and choose a range of GPU options, all of which largely work.
