Hi Mike :)

Catalyst never worked with my ATI (mobo M2A-VM HDMI with an integrated
Radeon X1250-based graphics) and in the past 3D didn't work with the
open source driver. 3D now does work with the radeon driver. I've got a
NVIDIA GeForce 7200GS, but unmounted the graphics some days ago and
switched back to the X1250-based graphics. It's a balancing act what
graphics to use. Each upgrade of X stuff could interfere with audio,
disable and/or enable functionality of the graphics etc..

I didn't test Catalyst with Precise (and Quantal RC). This will be the
next step today, but first I've got to solve another computer user
issue, I've to decide, if I'll cook or if I'll warm some junk food ;).
To be continued ...

Thank you,
Ralf

I still need to troubleshoot. Since vesa can't provide the needed
resolution, I at least could test, if the frequency would be ok.

"The current version of Catalyst doesn't support xorg-server 1.13 at the
moment. Catalyst < 12.6 doesn't support xorg-server 1.12." -
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMD_Catalyst

Regarding to http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx I
need Catalyst version 9.3 and Quantal's X is versionn 1.13.

spinymouse@qrc:~$ fglrxinfo
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such
operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12
spinymouse@qrc:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI
RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series]
spinymouse@qrc:~$ ls /usr/src
fglrx-9.000 linux-headers-3.5.0-17 linux-headers-3.5.0-17-lowlatency

I suspect that for Precise there also is a conflict between Catalyst and
X.

I guess I have to get a config for the radeon by trial and error.

Regards,
Ralf
