    I'm having a few problems. I think It built fine, and I can see the radeonhd drivers in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers but when I look through /var/log/Xorg.0.log it seems that the VESA driver is being loaded every time.

    I have modified /etc/X11/xorg.conf does anyone have any suggestions? Should I try to also modify the BusID. How do I know the busID of my card?

    Cheers

    PS: Using a ATI/AMD 3870 with gutsy

      Are you able to post your xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log somewhere?

          After you installed the drivers, did you edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (note the "X" in X11 is an uppercase "X") and change the driver in the "Device" section from "vesa" to "radeonhd" ?

            Yep, done that. I have pasted my logs and xorg.conf into pastebin but the spam filter must be reporting it as spam... not sure.

            Do you have a 38xx card. Have you got it working?

            EDIT: Just noticed the following in my xorg log
            (--) PCI:*(1:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc unknown chipset (0x9501) rev 0, Mem @ 0xe0000000/28, 0xf5000000/16, I/O @ 0xb000/8

                gdm on gutsy is configured with autofallback. So it is normal that vesa is used when radeonhd fails.

                  I don't think the PCI IDs are in the driver yet -- I expect the developers wouldn't want to add them until someone has tested on the card (which makes sense).

                  You can either add the device ID to src/rhd_id.c yourself or wait until the devs can get their hands on cards. I would start with inserting a single line into the PCI_ID_LIST table, keeping the IDs in ascending order :

                  RHD_DEVICE_MATCH( 0x9501, RHD_R600 ), /* Radeon HD 3870 */

                    I edited the c file, recompiled and reinstalled but xorg still seems unable to recognize it and subsequently ubuntu still seems to be defaulting to vesa. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

                    I don't mind waiting for some of the developers to get this card. Drivers that work with it probably wont be far away.

                      Just a quick question. After installing the radeonhd drivers, should they show up in the list when running "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"?

                      Apologies if I have derailed the discussion, I will not be offended if a mod moves this to thread of its own.
