    Default speed problems on mythbuntu 11.04

    I am having trouble running the open source ATI driver on mythbuntu 11.04. Video playback on HD videos is very jerky. The card is an ATI 9550

    A bit of history:

    This card played fine on earlier versions of ubuntu, but when I installed 10.04 it was jerky with the standard open source driver. There was a message in dmesg about it running in AGP x1 mode.
    AT that time I found out about the xorg edgers ppa, and installed the driver from there. It was fantastic. perfect smooth 1920 x 1080 HD with a standard install, with no mucking around with configs.
    I now am running 11.04 and the standard driver is more up to date than the xorg edgers one, but my video is slow and jerky again. I know this card can do smooth HD video though.

    I have tried putting options radeon.modeset=1 and options radeon.agpmode=8 into a radeon-kms.cong file but it didn't make any change. I have tried putting agpmode 8 and also agpmode 4 into xorg.conf, but xorg didn't start either time.

    I will paste the relevant parts fo xorg.0.log in case it helps.

    You are running in UMS mode and it looks like you may have fglrx leftovers still installed. Make sure all of fglrx is removed and make sure radeon is loaded in KMS mode.

    Flgrx was never installed so it shouldn't be a problem.

    How do I make sure it's in KMS mode? I had "options radeon.modeset=1" in radeon-kms.conf in /etc/modprobe.d, which I though was supposed to force KMS mode. It doesn't seem to be working though, so is there something else I am supposed to do?

    Thanks

    radeon.modeset=1 should be on the kernel line in your grub.conf.

    I tried adding radeon.modeset into the kernet grub line just by hitting e during boot, and editing the line there. There was no change to performance, and the xorg.0.log record was exactly the same as well. ANy other idea?

    Thanks

    OK, a change.

    I uninstalled an old nvidia driver (for a card that no longer works)

    I then added radeon.modeset into the grub boot again, and got this in xorg.0.log

    The section starting with drmopendevice I have not noticed before.

    This seems to suggest that modesetting is available, but the xorg log still continues to say that modesetting isn't available.

    I looked in the kern.log and it said that modesetting is enabled, but somehow in xorg.0.log it says that modesetting is not enabled.

    Ideas?

    Make sure the radeon kernel module is loaded before you start X.

    I found a page that talked about a "race" issue where x starts up before the driver is initialised. That page suggested adding modprobe radeon into /etc/init/gdm.conf, but this didn't work for me. I have also tried adding "radeon" into /etc/modules, but that also didn't work. According to dmesg | grep drm, the kernel modesetting is initialising at around 13 seconds, Xorg log is saying that it can't initialise drm at around 23 seconds. Is there a way of delaying x from starting (this system often boots automatically due to a BIOS wakeup, and always logs in automatically), or something else I cna try?

    thanks
