  • Issue with X1100 using Catalyst 8.6

    I've been having issues to get my X1100 video working at Ubuntu Hardy. I followed these steps:
    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...atalyst_8.6.29

    After configuring the driver with sudo aticonfig --initial -f, I press crtl+alt+backspace and X starts up fine. However Xvideo/2D acc/3D results in corruption. Here's a glxgears screenshot.



    Rebooting Linux doesn't even let me get to GDM, it stops at a blackscreen (without any keyboard response, so I have to reset the system because I can't go to tty1). Previous versions of drivers or Ubuntu's didnt work.

    this happens, why not try updating the device section of your system to this, reboot, and try again, this might help a little... also see about disabling compiz fusion.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    	Driver      "fglrx"
    	BusID       "PCI:1:5:0"
    	# enable XVideo out.
    	Option	    "VideoOverlay" "on"
    	Option	    "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    	Option	    "Textured2D" "off"
    	Option	    "TexturedXrender" "off"
    
    EndSection
    oh and a quick question, what is the overall system specification you are using?

      Core 2 Duo E4300
      1 Gig RAM
      320GB HD
      Ubuntu 8.04 (default Xorg and kernel)
      Motherboard is a renamed ECS, HP website says it's RC415ST-HM

      EDIT: I used that piece of xorg.conf, restarted X and it didn't work. But X started after a reboot and glxgears worked as well. I'll use the computer for awhile to see if the problem won't come back.

        This is a common bug, i have an R5xx based card as well. I doubt the issue will return, and also, you should be able to use XVideo rendering now.

          Hm. Compiz, glxgears and XVideo are working. Thanks for the help.
