  • RadeonHD on Thinkpad T60/X1400

    I just made my first attempt to use the RadeonHD driver on my Thinkpad. It failed :-) Failed in that X starts without complaining but then I see lots of green and red pixels on black ground instead of GDM.

    But maybe somebody can help me figure out what's wrong? I will attach my Xorg.log and xorg.conf.

    it also fails on my T60/X1400

    I just tried it on my T60/X1400 and it also fails. I just get a black screen.

      Works for me on Z61m/X1400.
      Have you guys removed the Monitor-Section from your xorg.conf? If not, please do so, as it prevents RadeonHD from finding the correct modes for the panel (it's a feature, erm, bug )

        Thanks for the tip. I got it working!

          Well, it does indeed work now, but the DPI is all messed up & my text is tiny. And without the monitor section there no where to place your DisplaySize option.

          Suggestions?

            When you use KDM you could use:

            ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp -dpi your-override

            in /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc - position can be different for other distributions.

              Wow! That sounds fantastic! I also have a Z61m. Can you or someone else running RadeonHD on a Thinkpad please elaborate a bit on what actually works at this point?

              Can you play video smoothly?
              Can you suspend/resume your laptop without the driver killing it?
              Can you use an external monitor over the VGA interface?

              That is, apart from 3D, can I ditch fglrx and its warts and get nice 2D with RadeonHD already?

                Yeah that did it. Well, I added it to my startx script, but yeah. Seems every distribution and desktop env puts their dpi configuration in a different place.

                  I can get mine to run at 1680x1050 on an external monitor. Does anyone have any hints?

                    I've removed the monitor-section of my xorg.conf but now the glxinfo shows this:

                    So you see that the mesa driver has been loaded. Why isn't the radeonhd driver loaded?

                    Please help
