Hi guys,

Absolutely first time using SLED 11. Bought the $50 option and thought I'd give this a shot. The install went fine and all was well until I applied all patches. After a reboot, the display, which is 1080p and stems from an ATi gpu no longer worked as it did all through the install. Through the install everything was 1080p. After the patches, all I got was 1440, not 1920 x 1080p. Moving a window around is choppy now.

I felt that maybe it didn't understand the ATi so I looked to uninstall it. Hoping to return to whatever might have been prior to the patches. Didn't help one bit.

Any ideas would be great. Ready to chuck this and just call it a loss at this point.

I don't have any personal experience of the ATI cards with SLED and the think the guy who does is offline for a few days so I'll see if I can help.

You mention that you uninstalled the ATI driver. I advise re-installing it and if necessary setting resolution in YaST > Graphics Card and Monitor.

You can also try:
At the login screen press ctrl-alt-f1 to get a text login prompt.
Log in as root, then

$ init 3
$ sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
$ reboot

It may help if you can post the output of the following commands (wrapping it in CODE tags will make it much easier to read, look for the # button in the toolbar when composing)

$ cat /etc/SuSE-release
$ zypper lr -u
$ /sbin/lspci -nnk
The first one tells us which version of SLED you're using, (hopefully 11 SP3), the second which software repositories you have set up and the third what hardware is in your machine and which kernel modules are being used for it.

Thank you!! Would love to get this resolved and learn something in the process. Thanks so much for your help.

Did you try the things I suggested in my previous post?

Here is what I did...

I wanted to verify all that I had observed in my first message. So I started over completely from scratch and reinstalled. Indeed the install itself was in 1920x1080. The screen looked correct. However, I was wrong about a few things.

1. The monitor was not known even after the initial install and prior to the patches.
2. The patches have nothing to do with the situation at all.

This time I wanted to see if the monitor was indeed known and if so, would that change after I installed the patches. The monitor was not known. So I did the first reboot for no particular reason. No patches applied yet, just rebooted a 2nd time after the initial reboot after installation took place. So to be clear, I installed Suse the normal way by booting off the install media. I rebooted. That first reboot had showed the monitor unknown and at 0 Hz. I did not install any patches and rebooted again. Upon that reboot the monitor is still unknown, but now SUSE has it listed as 77 Hz and 1440.

I installed all the patches, roughly 104 I think. Upon reboot after that the monitor is still unknown.

I now open Control Center, and I see AMD Catalyst Control Center. If I try to run that control panel, I get this notice:


There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.

No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the AMD driver appropriate for you AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

I went to the software manager and did a search for 'amd' and come up with this... This is installed...



xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd - Driver for AMD GPG (ATI) r5xx/r6xx Chipsets
radeonhd is the X.org X11 driver for AMD GPG (ATI) r5xx/r6xx chipsets. Main development is driven by Novell, in close relationship to AMD which provides free documentation for the chipsets.

Latest build: 02/04/2012



And if I search for ati and found this is installed...




ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default - ATI "fglrx" driver kernel module

ATI "fglrx" driver kernel module for ATI Radeon HD 2000 and later.

So this time I have not uninstalled anything. It is as it was installed and not touched by me in any way. I thought I'd seek your advice before I do anything to alter this from the defaults I have been given after a generic install and installation of the patches. Here are the outputs from the previous exchange under the new installation:

Here is what I did...

I wanted to verify all that I had observed in my first message. So I
started over completely from scratch and reinstalled. Indeed the install
itself was in 1920x1080. The screen looked correct. However, I was wrong
about a few things.

1. The monitor was not known even after the initial install and prior to
the patches.
2. The patches have nothing to do with the situation at all.

Thanks again for any further suggestions.

Hi
So you need to drop to runlevel 3, then you can either configure
radeonhd or fglrx;


su -
init 3

sax2 -r -m 0=radeonhd

or

sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx

Here you can select the monitor, would recommend the generic LCD at
the resolution you require, save and exit;


init 5 && exit

Thank you!!

When I did this:

sax2 -r -m 0=radeonhd

It got a lot of xserver errors and aborted.

So I executed this: sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx

This apepars to have worked, though it wouldn't let me just init 5. So I rebooted.

Upon reboot the display is indeed 1920x1080. So than kyou very very much for that!

Catalyst even works now.

There is one, perhaps minor issue. On the lower right-side of the display there is a AMD graphic overlay which says, "Unsupported Hardware" with the AMD logo on it. Any ideas there?

Hi
The infamous watermark...... there is a patch/script available to get
that to remove, however I use the openSUSE fglrx method via script and
rpm install. The advantage of the script is it checks and rebuild the
module on a kernel update. Sometimes the ATI repository lags behind
after an update....

See here;
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglrx

Scroll down to the section, "Building the rpm yourself" I always use su
- and also create a directory for the driver work, so something like;


su -
mkdir AMD
cd AMD

Then continue with step two (2) etc....

Ahh yes, forgot about that error..... I did mention it on IRC, create a
temporary softlink (as root user);


ln -s /usr/bin/lsb_release /usr/bin/lsb-release

If lsb_release isn't installed you will need to add it;


zypper in lsb_release

Thank you!!!

My ATi is running well now thanks to you!

So where does go or what should one read to make one's self better able to understand what just happened? You obviously would have solved all of this in 5 seconds had you been in front of the machine. Without help, I'd have had to move on. Anything I can read that will shed light on all of this?

Anyway, thank you so very very much!

Hi
What was installed was the ATI proprietary driver rather than the open source radeon driver, which in most use cases works fine. There is a wealth of information on the forum here and also the openSUSE forum which SLE is based on.

And of course creating a thread here on an issue or how to do something in most cases will get an answer from fellow users, so please just post a new thread and we will do our best to get you an answer :)

Reading here is a good start https://www.suse.com/documentation/sled11
