Thread: AMD Radeon graphic card

    AMD Radeon graphic card

    Mz daugther has an old computer and I got convinced her to use Linux.It has been quite difficult. OpenSuse worked fine for some years. Because administration is needed, I decided buy a SLED license for her. This should even be better.
    BUT:
    The system install fine. But it do not boot.
    After login screen the screen is gray.
    Using ALT CTRL F1 and manual login and code startx, the display starts and all works well.
    The mouse flashes little bit, bt it works.

    But I can't get the display manager to start.

    So she got another laptop with Ubuntu. But she prefer SUSE and wish it back.

    I can't find a solution on web. I can find that if the driver has an issue, X-manager might fail to start.

    By the way, before kernel update it worked fine.
    i have similar issues with my SLES after last kernel update. Nividia card and boot issue I has to solve with reboot or startx

    Hi
    What AMD gpu? Not using fglrx as this is deprecated....

    Not dual graphics?

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|3D"
    If it's an older AMD gpu, might need some tweaks added in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

    Hi Malcolm: I have some difficulties to get on Forum. I can login, but not post. Why here and now??

    I have installed on the Laptop 3 systems:
    Ubuntu: works out of the box.
    Mint - on daughters wish and a really nice program. It works. had some hang in beginning. But it shows all 3D acceleration is off and all graphic handled by CPU.

    SUSE- what we all prefer, but...

    katharina@SLEDKatharina:~$ /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|3D"
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS880M [Mobility Radeon HD 4225/4250] [1002:9712]

    Kernel driver in use: radeon
    Kernel modules: radeon
    katharina@SLEDKatharina:~$


    This is about graphic setup. There are shown 2 screen as well.
    Actually, after 3x installation and this multiboot it seems SUSE have "learned from Ubuntu" and runs now. But Mouse is flashing.

    This is the situation ion my SLES.
    Graphic boot randomly not.

    Hi
    So no issues with the proprietary Nvidia driver?

    These driver had been installed by default.

    libdrm_nouveau2 - Userspace interface for Kernel DRM services for NVIDIA chips
    libdrm_nouveau2-32bit - Userspace interface for Kernel DRM services for NVIDIA chips
    nvidia-computeG03 - NVIDIA driver for computing with GPGPU
    nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default - NVIDIA graphics driver kernel module for GeForce 8xxx and newer GPUs
    nvidia-glG03 - NVIDIA GL libraries for OpenGL acceleration
    nvidia-uvm-gfxG03-kmp-default - NVIDIA Unified Memory kernel module
    x11-video-nvidiaG03 - NVIDIA graphics driver for GeForce 8xxx and newer GPUs
    xf86-video-nv - NVIDIA video driver for the Xorg X server

    I could read some drivers are maybe better than others....

    Hi
    The first two files and last xf86-video-nv are for the nouveau driver, the others are the proprietary ones for the nvidia driver. From your output from lspci command it shows the kernel driver in use as nvidia but nouveau is still available if needed...

    Yes, but as today, the screen goes into grey. Sometimes I can get it up by Ctrl+Alt+F1, sometime reboot. Why that?

    Hi
    If there is a kernel or graphics stack (Mesa) update, then the driver needs to rebuild and update. This can sometime take extra time since the nvidia is in an external repository.

    Perhaps start a new thread on this, since this one is about AMD gpus

    Hi
    In this case you probably need to tweak with the Tear Free option, so as root user (or as your user create the file and copy to the location as root);

    Code:
    vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf
    
    Section "Device"
        Identifier "Radeon"
        Driver "radeon"
        Option "TearFree" "on"
    EndSection
    See how that goes.
