I purchase a HD2400 pro AGP
I try to install (both manually and with Envy) fglrx drivers.
With all version tested, the display doesn't work;
I have this error:
Code:>> dmesg | grep fglrx [ 35.722817] fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel. [ 35.726298] [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 928 MBytes.

I post a ticket on fglrx driver feedback on AMD support website, but I think I won't have any response.
If somebody have a HD2400Pro AGP that works with fglrx I would like its xorg.conf file
I know that HD2400Pro PciExpress are working with AMD Driver.
Actually I'm using Radeon HD driver but video playback
doesn't works well. I hope 2D acceleration will work soon.
If somebody could help me
I haven't noticed this problem;
I copy this trace after installing manually the 7.11 fglrx driver
My problem became more and more strange
driver. Switch to thext console (press ctrl-alt-f1), kill X, remove the kernel module ('rmmod fglrx') and re-install the driver.
Or, give Kano's excellent debian install script a try, it does
all of the above for you:
Also, you probably suffer from the rialto 'bug'.
So you can start pulling those hairs ...
Do install 8.4333 properly first though, maybe you're gettin' lucky
mlau was true,
I made a bad installation of my fglrx driver.
maybe a problem with restricted drivers (I don't know)
With the good fglrx version installed, I had an IRQ or a problem like that. I modified some features in my BIOS (some stuff in AGP part of the bios).
Now The fglrx driver is loaded, fglrxinfo show that all is installed correctly; but when I launch glxgears, I have a system freeze.
Also when I play a video, I have a lot of aliasing.
Maybe the problem come from my xorg.conf file. I will check it when I'll come back home.
I have an other problem since I've installed this graphic card; My network card stop working after a certain amount of time. I don't know if it is a material conflict, or if my network card is dying.
Thank you for you're help
As AGP is a dying technology I would suggest to return it and get a PCI-E board instead. In any case you lose money when you upgrade the next part, you can not reuse a board or the gfx card. But at least PCI-E is better supported.
i would guess he got the AGP for a reason? afaik no motherboards have both pci express and agp, so it would be quite hard to replace only the graphics card....
There are some lowend boards with AGP+PCI-E, but for stability reasons I would not use em.
I choose an AGP card because my previous ATI 9800 is dead.
My motherboard + ram + CPU works well, I don't want to change all my hardware just for a graphic card.
It's like changing a car when you have to change only pneumatic tires.
I saw that the HD2400 pro supports Hdmi + Hdmi sound;
I look too fast on Linux forum about Hd2400 pro support. Pci Express works well but not on AGP. It's a mistake
