    Overdrive not working

    Hi all,

    I've got an Ati Radeon HD3650 AGP, and overdrive doesn't work. I have Arch Linux installed with kernel 2.6.31 and Catalyst 9.11 (9.12 has a bug in Warcraft 3, so I'm waiting for a fix).

    $ aticonfig --odgc

    Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP
    Core (MHz) Memory (MHz)
    Current Clocks : 300 400
    Current Peak : 725 400
    Configurable Peak Range : [725-750] [400-500]
    GPU load : 0%

    So, it should be possible to get a 750,500 if I'm right, but as you can see it doesn't work:

    $ aticonfig --odsc=750,500
    ERROR - Set clocks failed for Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP
    Please check that input values were valid


    I've tried many other values, but only 0,0 seems to work, which is doing nothing.

    Any ideas?

    I have run aticonfig:
    [email protected] ~ $ sudo aticonfig --initial
    Found fglrx primary device section
    Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Saved back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-1
    [email protected] ~ $ sudo aticonfig --initial --od-enable
    Found fglrx primary device section
    ATI Overdrive(TM) enabled


    And then...
    [email protected] ~ $ aticonfig --odgc

    Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP
    Core (MHz) Memory (MHz)
    Current Clocks : 300 400
    Current Peak : 725 400
    Configurable Peak Range : [725-750] [400-500]
    GPU load : 0%
    [email protected] ~ $ aticonfig --odsc=300,400
    ERROR - Set clocks failed for Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP
    Please check that input values were valid

    any ideas? (I used the current clock values & no luck, same for other settings 750,500 etc)

    it is a clean install of LinuxMint 7 main & catalyst 10.1 (just installed from AMD/ATI website)

    More importantly, though, you should look up a tutorial for how to do it all properly. A good starting place, since you're using Mint, would be here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
    Thank you very much! And I will definitely check out that link!

    Cheers!

    Actually, since I'm asking questions, how do I install the latest drivers for my card? I have downloaded the file "ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run" from the AMD/ATI website (apparently the latest version for my HD3650, for linux).

    It is sitting on my desktop (default login, as per installation setup). if I double-click, or select & press enter .... nothing happens

    through terminal:
    [email protected] ~ $ dir
    Desktop Music Projects Vuze\ Downloads
    Documents My\ Spore\ Creations Videos Windows\ Games
    DOS Pictures vuze
    [email protected] ~ $ cd Desktop
    [email protected] ~/Desktop $ dir
    107458-atioc_x86_32_105 atioc_x86_32 eob1.zip
    ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run english_7.0.pdf eobsjr.zip
    [email protected] ~/Desktop $ ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run
    bash: ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run: command not found

    running the command "su" (which changes the [email protected] from green to red, admin? I don't know what the relivance of the colour change is) makes no difference.

    Again, any help is very much appreciated!
