I’m a bit unclear. I’m only insisting on using fglrx because I’d like to play World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2. Microcode firmware is required for R and newer GPUs. Note R6xx and newer radeons have an internal thermal sensor that is exposed by the driver on most cards that utilize it.

Atl trouble installing a piece of hardware? Last edited by burningred; at Note On APU chipsets, those settings have little to no effect and give inconclusive results.

Backported packages for Debian 7 “Wheezy” deb http: It’s therefore overlapping with radeon’s card support, and radeonhd might be merged to radeon at some point if there’s no use for a separate “newer” driver. DKMS will build the fglrx module for your system. Other options there might be needed as well, lknux.

Radeon™ Software for Linux® Release Notes | AMD

ATI client glx version string: Hosting provided by Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt. I got like linuz, fps in five seconds on glxgears, which is different but it’s not the preferred drivers for my video card. With packages like these, which introduce a number of non-free binary blobs into the system, if you are security aware, it pays to use the savedconfig use flag, and do some removing of the unnecessary lines, linuxx better yet uncommenting them, from the respective savedconfig file.


Audio through the HDMI port is available for some cards. SGI server glx version string: Originally Posted by burningred. Power Management Ubuntu The Radeon driver is already pre-installed in Ubuntu.

BB code is Oinux. It is the preferred drivers for your video card. Note “dpm” is the default power management method since kernel 3.

Right now, the radeon drivers are being used when I see the list from “lsmod” Before I use synaptic package manager, the fglrxinfo command wouldn’t work and I wouldn’t get that response. The options from the Sound card rf350 menu need only to be set if the card supports HDMI or DisplayPort audio and you want to use it.

AMD/ATI Proprietary Driver

If graphic performance such as playing videos is terrible, then make sure KMS Color Tiling is enabled. It uses the I2C interface, which needs to libux enabled in the kernel:.

During driver installation you may have been notified that ‘aticonfig –initial’ can be used to create the required configuration file.


The fglrx drivers only work with certain versions of the X server. Until driver version 6.

If you do and then have problems with your video configuration, try using the simplified version shown above. Linnux With more than one monitor connected, the memory clock will always be on full speed. In some cases it appears the ‘auto’ settings don’t work correctly, so make sure to explicitly enable the integrated graphics.


Microcode firmware is required for R and newer GPUs. On cards that are supported by radeonsi starting at Southern Island, see the feature matrix make sure to not only specify “radeon” but also “radeonsi” as the driver. This behavior can be avoided by using power method “profile” instead of “dpm” and by forcing “profile” to “low”. See this page Recommended configuration for X.

The radeon kernel module is blacklisted by the glx-alternative-fglrx or linu packages.
