RadeonHD Driver Delivers AMD 780 Support
Phoronix: RadeonHD Driver Delivers AMD 780 Support
The AMD 780 Series Chipsets have been available for nearly four months now, and supporting the Radeon HD 3200 graphics since day one has been AMD's proprietary Catalyst driver. On the open-source side, there has been the Radeon HD 3200 / 780G support quite quickly through the xf86-video-ati driver due to its use of AtomBIOS, but the support within the RadeonHD driver hadn't arrived until earlier today. Thanks to 22 code commits made to the mainline xf86-video-radeonhd git tree, it's now possible to use this newest AMD integrated graphics processor with this Novell-spawned driver.
Problem setting hdmi audio up in Karmic
Hi there! --- odd problem here on Karmic/32bit:
As mentioned in the Ubuntu Wiki I added two additional option params to my xorg.conf:
if those entries are active radeonhd starts X with a kind of flickerish behavior: screen display goes on and off every few seconds.
Option "Audio" "true"
Option "HDMI" "all"
With those entries commented out X will run smoothly with no errors, but the lack of hdmi audio of course.
Chipset is the 780G (radeonhd 3200) - mobo is asrock A780GMH/128M
Karmic uses a pretty recent radeonhd git tree.
The Xorg log is not helping: no (WW)s or (EE)s to mention.
Any ideas what this issue is about?
