    Catalyst 10.4 fglrx support for HD 5830?

    I have an x86_64 computer running Fedora 12. It has a Radeon HD 4200 IGP, which was working fine with Catalyst 10.4 and my Dell 3008WFP (2560x1600). However, I wanted higher 3D performance. I looked at the release notes for Catalyst 10.4, saw that it supports the Radeon 5800 series, went to my local computer store, and bought a Sapphire Radeon HD 5830.

    Now the X server claims that I don't have any supported hardware, and refuses to start. Is the Radeon HD 5830 not supported in 10.4? If not, will it be supported in 10.5?

    As far as I was able to determine (and no one here has said otherwise), Catalyst 10.4 doesn't seem to support the 5830. Maybe 10.5 will. Since it uses the same chip as the 5850 and 5870, it's might just be a matter of adding the 5830's PCI device ID to the list.

    I don't know about Ubuntu, but my experience with Fedora was that the first step of getting it installed was to return to the store and exchange it for a 5850. AFAIK, that's not Fedora-specific.

    Hi,

    May i have a quick how-to , to install it on ubuntu x64 10.04 ? i don't know how to patch, and it seems i'm the only one ubuntu user with a 5830...

    Thanks!

    Does not matter, the script checks it on the fly, independend of the version you install - you can use -v option to install any version you put into /usr/src before.

    I just execute em on the fly when i detect that they are needed, which is simple, you only need to do

    grep -q generated/autoconf.h common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.c || echo no 2.6.33+ support - patch needed

    Basically you could patch the already installed fglrx driver too. Just thats not automated. As soon as ATI has direct support the patches will not be applied.
    the real patch what i(we) need is the 10-6 catalyst ;-)
