  • I have a MSI R7970 Lightning on Ubuntu 13.10 and it works well with the PPA, except for one thing: the fans seems to be stuck around 50-70% all the time, making my desktop too noisy to be usable.
    I enabled dpm but it changed nothing.

    Is there a setting somewhere that I should tweak or is it a bug?


    For the record, here is the sensor output:
    Code:
    $ sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:        +27.8?C  (crit = +106.0?C)
    temp2:        +29.8?C  (crit = +106.0?C)
    
    radeon-pci-0100
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:        +33.0?C  
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Physical id 0:  +34.0?C  (high = +85.0?C, crit = +105.0?C)
    Core 0:         +32.0?C  (high = +85.0?C, crit = +105.0?C)
    Core 1:         +34.0?C  (high = +85.0?C, crit = +105.0?C)

      IIRC this is a known bug, but I can't find the bug report... search for it in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/

        Thanks!
        OpenMAX is now enabled.

          Thanks, I updated your mesa build, installed the libomxil-bellagio packages, but it doesn't seem to work with VLC because libomx_r600.so is missing. Any thoughts?

            You should install the *g3dvl* package on 13.10 or the *vdpau* package (well, the packages with that in the name) on 14.04, then that file should be installed somewhere under /usr/lib (try searching it with find /usr/lib | grep libomx ).

            I have no idea how can it be found by VLC.

            • There was a change to radeon which caused lockups and was then reverted. Force an update:
              sudo apt-get update
              sudo apt-get upgrade

              • Is anyone successfully running the Portal 2 beta using this PPA? I can't get it running on nvidia, I'll try AMD later, no Intel to test myself though.

                  Fails on AMD also. Could it be another building issue with this repo or should I report it upstream?

                    Yes, report the bugs upstream, I am not aware of PPA specific problems.

                    • Ubuntu 14.04

                      Hello!
                      I install Ubuntu 14.04 on my PC with ingegrated Intel HD Graphics 4600.
                      I also add that PPA and update all packages. After that I have:

                      $ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
                      OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
                      OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 256 bits)
                      OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 10.2.0-devel (git-678cf96 trusty-oibaf-ppa)
                      OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
                      OpenGL extensions:

                      But I want to use a hardware rendering.
                      How to do that?
                      Thanks
