With 8.3, my HD 2400 PRO AGP finally works.But it's strange and really slow especially using vmware-workstation.
Anyone have the same problem?
Can you post some more details of the steps you took to get the driver working?
Or use pastebin.com to post the contents of your xorg.conf ?
I am still finding no joy with fglrx 8-3 on my HD 2600 XT AGP
My saphire HD2600 pro agp works too. Sometimes it works fast and sometimes works slow. I don't now why it is.I have archlinux.
What kind of motherboard chipset do you have?
How much RAM is there on your motherboard?
What kind of CPU do you have?
Do you run 32-bit or 64-bit Linux and which kernel version?
How much memory is there on your AGP card?
It would be VERY helpful of you and others if you can provide such information.
Just stating that your AGP RadeonHD 2xxx card works is already very helpful because it proves there are things possible, but it's frustrating to those of us for who it doesn't work because information is missing (mostly from AMD/ATI).
By the way I did manage to get many versions of fglrx working on my RadeonHD 2600XT AGP card but with direct rendering turned off, so very slow. For me there is no point in using fglrx that way since radeonhd can do the same but more consistently.
Are you sure your card is working with DRI switched on?
Mine has 512 MB DDR3 but the driver detects 256MB DDR3.
That is at least one thing I can see going wrong in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log
If it is not too much trouble for you, could you please use http://pastebin.com to put the content of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log there and provide the links to those files?
So glxgears runs and gives me > 3100 fps, with no trace of corruption on a 1680x1050 screen. Yay.
Playing videos using xine and XVideo no longer crashes the Xserver when xine exits, but does crash the Xserver when the video file reaches its end. The backtrace suggests an illegal memcpy in glesx.so, as called by XVidPutImage(). At the bottom of the stack trace is the function FontFileCompleteXLFD(), and there's not much information between the two.
World of Warcraft/Wine 0.9.56 (OpenGL mode) still locks up the Xserver (but not the laptop) when run full-screen at 1680x1050. However, it seems to run OK in a 1400x900 window, and that is what I am doing at the moment. At 1680x1050, WoW's login screen renders correctly and the music plays in the background, but none of the animations work and the mouse and keyboard do not respond.
So on balance, I think I'll be sticking with 8.3 for a bit longer. However, being stuck at 1400x900 is annoying. Also, WoW's rendering does some weird things unless I provide WoW with the following options:
SET pixelShaders "0"
SET M2UseShaders "0"
SET M2USePixelShaders "1"
This is on a Thinkpad T60p, with a FireGL V5250 chip, and running Fedora 8. The laptop uses an Intel Core 2 Duo running at 2.33 GHz, and has 2 GB RAM.
compiz works fine with a lot of screen corruption, but the glxinfo shows mesa and not ATI as the openGL provider. glxgears is coming to ~500. It is just that one can see the screen with Xgl enabled, while that was not the case with 8.455 driver.
After having upgraded to Hardy (which uses the 2.6.24 kernel branch) suspend works fine with Compiz. But there are a few other problems: using Xv output I still get flickering with Compiz enabled. This is no good. I guess I'll just have to stick to X11 output for now. I'm just happy I can suspend and have pretty effects.
Have anyone had any success using mythtv with this driver?
mplayer works fine with XV but mythtv displays wrong colors on playback using XV. (and mplayer gets the same problem too, if i start it after having used mythtv to playback a file; restart X and mplayer works like a charm)
This is listed as a known issue in the release notes, but i was wondering if it could be something with my config, or just a mythtv problem. Also, why does it affect mplayer?
