Default Graphics - Radeon HD 5000 lock-ups

Hi,

I've been using a Radeon HD 5000 Graphics card with fglrx (see below). I have
frequent lock-ups in Squeeze.

I'm looking for an inexpensive alternative, does anyone have any experience
with the GeForce 8400GS?

Thanks,

C

Default Graphics - Radeon HD 5000 lock-ups

Nowadays (since kernel 2.6.38) the Radeon HD 5000 is also supported by the open
source driver radeon.

Have you tried another driver (for example, "radeon" or an updated
version of Catalyst -now is 11.3-)?

You can make further tests before dropping the card (review the logs for
any specific error, disable desktop effects...).

Not with that model, but I've had only good experiences with nvidia's:
7600GS (ok), quadro fx 1500 (ok), quadro nvs 440 (ok).

BTW the card seems to be a "Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450]"

I've tried radeon, but strangely I can't ctrl-alt-F1 to console with it.... I
don't think compositing worked either, but I can't remember for sure.

fglrx-driver is at 1:10-9-3 in Squeeze, 11.3 does not seem to be in squeeze-
backports.

3D and compositing work, but compositing is always turned off again on reboot.
Otherwise I haven't noticed anything except for the freezing. The symptoms
are lots of green dots superimposed on the screen and I am no longer able to
return to console. I have not tried ssh'ing in to restart X, so I don't know
if the system is really totally hung.

What happens when you press that combo? Nothing, black/blank screen? Can
you jump to another tty (2,3,4,5...)?

It should work, "radeon" is one of the most advanced open drivers for
this task (3D accleration/openGL) :-)

If you want to give a second chance to radeon driver (I'd do), just
upload your full "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" file to "www.pastebin.com" so
people here can review it.

(...)

You can always get the updated closed source driver directly from AMD
site. You will have to recompile by yourself if the kernel gets updated,
though.

I put a fanless 8400GS in my wife/kids' PC. It's cheap, handles compiz
just fine and playing videos with mplayer consumes an unmeasurable
amount of CPU when playing videos when hooked into the vdpau libraries.


(I just got the GeForce 210 and notice that it's about 40% faster than
the 8400GS while running about 5C cooler.)

Thanks for the feedback, this is the kind of thing one never finds on the
compatibility lists. I myself am looking for a passively cooled card that can
do compositing and 3D for purposes of googl-earth (no gaming), and last but
not least be able to play DVDs without hanging.

it doesn't. I'll post the log files and a better description as soon as I have
the time.

I use Debian Stable because I don't want to waste my time compiling stuff.
That worked well in Lenny with debian-multimedia and lenny-backports. Squeeze
is IMHO nowhere near as close to being a production desktop system as Lenny
was, but my impression might be biased by the problems I am having with my
Radeon card...

I put a fanless 8400GS in my wife/kids' PC. It's cheap, handles compiz
just fine and playing videos with mplayer consumes an unmeasurable
amount of CPU when playing videos when hooked into the vdpau libraries.

(I just got the GeForce 210 and notice that it's about 40% faster than
the 8400GS while running about 5C cooler.)

I added this to the bottom of the /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf :
include = /etc/mplayer/site.specific

In that file are the two lines:
vo=vdpau,xv,
vc=ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpa u,ffodivxvdpau,

Note the trailing commas. They make mplayer fallback to built-in code
if those libraries aren't installed.

radeon - Using the radeon driver (no xorg.conf, default installation):

http://pastebin.com/B34BSsQJ

Symptoms: cannot change to console Ctrl-Alt-F1 etc. The screen is blank and
the monitor is put in sleep mode (!). KDE System-Settingsesktop crashes
every time without exception.

fglrx - Using Squeeze packages and xorg.conf generated by aticonfig

http://pastebin.com/Z6x9LthQ

Symptoms: compositing works, 3D works (googl-earth). Compositing gets turned
off regularly, perhaps on logon by some process that I don't know and that no
one tells me about (this reminds me of windows). Regular lock-ups with green
radom fluttering pixelation on the whole screen. Otherwise normal behavior.

Summary: I hope this information helps someone. The on-board Graphics chip I
have (ATI) is too old for fglrx in Squeeze, and also does not work properly
with radeon in Squeeze (Lenny fglrx worked well). Thats what motivated me to
try the passive HD 5040 card.

Thanks for your help,

C
