Hi, i have buyed hd 3650 AGP (R6xx);
i using slackware64 (using 32bit version of driver is not problem for me)
witch driver i should use ?
- open ati
- open radeonhd
- mesa gallium
- closed fglrx
BTW on AMD site there is no 64bit fglrx for Radeon HD driver but I tested version for PCIe and it works (with very slow 2D rendering and fast 3D)
If I enable fglrx i get entries in Xorg.0.log:
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "AccelMethod" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "MigrationHeuristic" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "AccelDFS" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "EnableDepthMoves" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "ColorTiling" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "EXAVSync" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "RenderAccel" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "PrefferedVRefresh" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "CalcAlgorithm" is not used
Firefox is very, very slow; CHrome also.
If I move windows, cursor or anything that required screen refresh CPU utilization goes to 50-75%
amdcccle shows i'm using OpenGL 1.4 with compatibility profile (3.3)
Looks like you are running an xorg.conf set up for the open drivers and that there may be other install issues as well. Did you run aticonfig --initial (as root) before starting X ?
You don't "enable" fglrx, you need to install/uninstall and reboot. The kernel drivers are different, and fglrx replaces a number of other system files as well.
I wrote 'enable' but i mean that i have changed configuration of my screen section to use fglrx
I generate slack packages for driver (module + userland tools like amdccle and aticonfig)
If I comment out options for fglrx 2D rendering is still slow, amdcccle shos that OpenGL 1.4 (!!) i used
Changing xorg.conf to use the fglrx X driver only covers one small part of what you need to make the driver work.
If you're only changing xorg.conf then you're trying to run the fglrx X driver with the open source kernel and 3D drivers, which is going to work about as badly as you might expect.
You're going to need to do some cleanup; suggest you :
- stop X
- uninstall any previous fglrx drivers
- do a fresh install of fglrx
- run aticonfig --initial with the -f/force option to let it clean up your xorg.conf
- start X
Having a HD3650 myself, I choose fglrx
The advantage of 3D desktop and 3D software is preferred.
Make sure you have the interrupt latency on your AGP port set to 248.
On my Abit nForce2, the PCI interrupt latency was set to 248 and the freezes and lockups disappeared
