    Default AMD Zacate E-350

    I just received my new hardware with AMD E-350 Chipset (Zacate)

    What is working for now on Ubuntu 10.10:
    Sound,network,etc.

    What is not working:
    Video decoding on GPU with libvba stuff.
    [ 299.222] (II) fglrx(0): UVD feature is enabled(II) fglrx(0)

    So for now, there is not accelaration of x264 and so on. No 1080p Videos are running fine.

    I started this thread in order to get some information from other guys having the very same hardware. I will use this thread in order to get running what is possible concerning graphics video acceleration.

    Latest fglrx is installed.

    In order to avoid 100% xorg load after some hours having it running with fglrx 11.2, I installed ati driver from git through xorg-edgers.

    Chip is detected and 1920x1080 is running - but: The screen size is not correct, taskbar at bottom and top are missing ;-). Monitor is not adjustable because of digital hdmi connection. I use 1280x800 for now.

    Sounds like underscan/overscan issues. X is compensating for what it believe is a TV. Try:
    Code:
    xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set underscan off
    Or check if you can set your monitor's aspect ratio to "Original" or "No scan" or something like that.

    Thx for your suggestion, but it is not working.

    fritsch@host:~/Desktop$ xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set underscan off
    X Error of failed request: BadName (named color or font does not exist)
    Major opcode of failed request: 150 (RANDR)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 11 (RRQueryOutputProperty)
    Serial number of failed request: 29
    Current serial number in output stream: 29


    But, your second tip was absolutely right, i switched the internal monitor Picture setting from 16:9 to the setting "Screen Fit" and now everything is fine. Thank you.

    fritsch - I have a c50 notebook, see http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...Aspire-One-522 for various people's info about making it work with Linux.

    What hardware do you have?

    I am guessing it is a uATX or mini-ITX board. I think e350 is just as interesting as c50. Where I live, so sad, e350 is not available. I'd like to know what h/w you are working on though.

    I bought an Asus Mainboard:
    http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=qSoDxhM5mAk1F607

    It is an E35M1-M PRO with Sata6G, USB 3.0 and AMD E-350 with integrated Radeon 6310 graphics.

    I tried it getting to work with xorg-edgers ppa and a recent 2.6.38 kernel from the mainline ppa. KMS is totally screwed up, if enabled I will just get a distorted grey boxing image in the lower left, no image or content can be recogniced.

    If running an xserver console switching is not possible anymore, if i do it i just get a blank screen - backswitching is not possible.

    After same time interrupt 16 ist going away :-)

    First I installed fglrx version 11.2, the problem here was, that x consumed 100% load after screensaver was run or alternatively (as i ran it overnight) after it went idling. It was not possible to kill xserver process.

    For now I am just running plain text console with disabled KMS.

    The next steps to do are:
    - Fill a bug against KMS and my hardware, I got some kernel messages.
    - Get KMS and with it powersaving/3D Accelaration working
    - Develop vdpau interface for radeon cards and get 1080p videos working (just kidding :-()

    The only solution for now is: Buying an nvidia G210 graphics card - but i do not want to do this. 18 Watt TDP with and 31 Watt extra nvidia, this is no good.
