ATi drivers not working correctly with ATi Radeon 3200 HD
I have problems here and I need help.
My problem is that this Debian Lenny together with the latest drivers from ATi won't work so I haveto manually edit xorg.conf to use radeon instead of the provided settings which I get when installing the ATi Catalyst package.
The graphics is: ATi Radeon 3200 HD on an ASUS laptop.
I will attach the xorg.conf here so it can be analyzed:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
What do you mean by "won't work"? We need a little more to go on, like a description of the problem. Posting your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from when you tried to use the fglrx driver would also be helpful.
Since I'm not sitting with the computer at the present I will get back to the log files in a week or two when I have the computer with me again.
My current theory is that this kernel (2.6.26-1) which was provided by Debian Lenny misses some things in the kernel which might be the cause of the problem with the ATi driver, but I can't confirm this. I'm using the standard kernel which was provided by Lenny (Debian "testing")
