    Default Cannot install xf86-video-ati on x1400 (K)ubuntu

    Hi,

    i've got a problem with the xf86-video-ati driver for my x1400 mobile card in my thinkpad t60.

    I've tried the usual steps for installing a program from source code.
    $ ./autogen.sh
    $ make
    $ make install
    But if X starts there is an error message that there is no kernel module found:
    (EE) Failed to load module "radeon" (module does not exist, 0)
    Does someone have advise?

    Thanks for your help.

    Edit: Tried both, "ati" and "radeon" in device section for driver.


    Here is my xorg.conf:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"
    screen 0 "ati screen[0]" 0 0

    EndSection

    EndSection

    Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "CoreKeyboard"
    Option "XkbRules" "xorg"

    Since you seem to have lost your driver anyways, try:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make clean
    make
    make install

    Thank you, my X server starts :-)

    But everything seems very slow. The desktop icons are flickering.


    When I start a video with xv playback my computer halts... :-(

    What does your Xorg log say?

    xf86-video-ati (aka "radeon") is just the X driver, which is entirely userspace. What you're missing is mesa/mesa (the 3D driver) and mesa/drm (the kernel driver and interface library).

    Going forward, radeonhd will use the same mesa and drm code, so it's a good time to get familiar with it
