    I am using lucid, tried to update but it still has old version in cache, so i tried a few things to install manually. Could someone please explain the procedure, or better show the steps, or a link. to how to update. Thanks

    hi krionius or other radeon mobility hd 5650 users:
    as I just cannot get it to work, xorg.0.log seems to show segmentation, I would be grateful if you could confirm the following things please:
    a) distro - mine is lucid lynx beta 1 amd64 fresh install
    b) version installed 1,2,3 or 4 (am guessing 3 ??) -- fglrx_8.721-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb - I tried 3 and 4
    c) xorg.conf just the standard from sudo aticonfig --initial ie mine is
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    	Driver      "fglrx"
    	BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection

    d) exact device yours is returned as - mine is:
    Code:
    $ lspci -nn -vv | grep Radeon
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood [Radeon HD 5600 Series] [1002:68c1] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5600 Series] [1002:aa60]

    e) make/model of your laptop -- mine is sony e-series

    thanks a million

    Default multiple display adapters not working

    This driver release doesn't work when enabling multiple display adapters for me. Can only enable one display at a time.

    YMMV, it does work for others:

    Iím running it for a couple of hours now. Switched to the console and back,
    between two different X sessions with different display setups, played a video,
    and am using a big desktop spread over two displays.
    The only thing I didnít test is 3D acceleration (e.g. in games).
    But I think since KDE4 already uses that to render its compositing desktop, it
    should work.
    perhaps you need to make adjustments to your xorg.conf configuration

    I installed the newest build of these drivers, and they don't work. When I'm trying to turn them on using jockey-gtk im getting something like that:
    Code:
    SystemError: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    I get segmentation faults as well:

    it doesn't matter whether I try to run DRI as a user or root:

    [ 3250.964257] glxinfo[14930]: segfault at 7fe086715fa8 ip 00007fe08617cd9e sp 00007fff53767b78 error 7 in libGL.so.1.2[7fe086122000+a2000]

    this happens with full blown xorg.conf configuration and conservative where everything is disabled

    card is
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 6899
    01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc Device aa50
    strange thing is:

    graphics output works:

    fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series
    OpenGL version string: 3.2.9737 Compatibility Profile Context
    (that's all it puts out)

    chipset is H57, Processor: Core i7 i860
    ~amd64, Gentoo Linux, gcc version 4.4.3 (Gentoo Hardened 4.4.3-r1 p1.0, espf-0.3.7)


    @bridgman:

    you guys should know what error 7 means

    output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    http://pastebin.com/BVcH9vpB


    that's all I can provide


    gotta go back to work (and restore my system) now

    Has anyone made a working package for Debian?

    In theory yes, there is one here:

    http://mentors.debian.net/debian/poo.../fglrx-driver/

    Maybe soon in experimental. Did not try it but looked at it for errors and found a few which i mailed to the maintainer. Basically there is no blacklisting done of the radeon module which is needed when radeon is compiled with kms on by default. Also the manpages created by debian are completely outdated, the "supported" chips in the fglrx manpage are not supported anymore since fglrx 9-4 and there is no fglrxrc file. the dkms package does some things i do not understand too... I really think that the U packageing is more advanced, all i need is a download url for the ati-installer to update my script.

    Try my previous link:

    http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-fglrx..._fglrx-driver_

    You will have to build the driver yourself; I cannot get it to work on a 3870 using Squeeze. Perhaps you will have better luck!
