Problem with ATI Radeon AGP HD 3600 Series Grapic card (Resolved changed card)

I am running 11.4 classic desktop I have a AGP Radeon HD 3600 Series ATI which works fine under Windows.

I installed the ATI drivers as recommended during installation this resulted in the system getting stuck at the Ubuntu system start screen.

So I have removed them and am operating in basic video mode. this is causing problems in Games and video streaming via the internet.

I also think it causes the rendering problems in some other programs.

I wonted to try the most up-to-date drivers so downloaded them and they have been extracted into a folder in my download folder.

How do I install them our is there an existing package for the latest ATI drivers I can install from another distribution.

Can we have the output from:

sudo lshw -C display

Can you also post the output from:

uname -a

Is this a fresh install of 11.04, or an upgrade ?

This is a clean install

The PAE kernel headers are required to install the fglrx drivers for the 32bit PAE kernel.

Install linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic-pae, update the system, THEN activate the drivers from
System>Administration>Additional Drivers

So run this:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic-pae

then:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Now go to System>Administration>Additional Drivers and activate the driver.

Done this and installed the driver and still the same boot gets stuck at the Ubunta splash screen just displays the logo and stops. Keyboard (USB) and mouse ps2 are disabled.

Before uninstalling the driver I ran aticonfig and got the following information.

ATI Overdrive ™ options:
The following options are used to get and set current and peak, core
and memory clock information as well as read the current temperature of
adapters. By using the “–adapter=” argument the ATI Overdrive ™

If no adapter is explicitly targeted the commands will be run on the Default
adapter as indicated by the “–list-adapters” command
–od-enable
Unlocks the ability to change core or memory clock values by
acknowledging that you have read and understood the ATI Overdrive ™
disclaimer and accept responsibility for and recognize the potential
dangers posed to your hardware by changing the default core or memory
clocks
–od-disable

Sets the core and memory clock to the values specified in MHz
The new clock values must be within the theoretical ranges provided
by --od-getclocks. If a 0 is passed as either the NewCoreClock or
NewMemoryClock it will retain the previous value and not be changed.
There is no guarantee that the attempted clock values will succeed
even if they lay inside the theoretical range. These newly set
clock values will revert to the default values if they are not
committed using the “–od-commitclocks” command before X is
restarted
–odrd, --od-restoredefaultclocks
Sets the core and memory clock to the default values.
Warning X needs to be restarted before these clock changes will take
effect

Once the stability of a new set of custom clocks has been proven this
command will ensure that the Adapter will attempt to run at these new
values whenever X is restarted
–odgt, --od-gettemperature

    This command will generate a dual head configuration
    file with the second screen located above the first
    screen.
    Multi head : aticonfig --initial --heads=4 --adapter=1
    This command will generate 4 adjacent X Screens
    on adapter 1. Use with -f to reduce previously configured heads.

  2. Setting up big desktop to horizontal and set overlay on secondary display.
    aticonfig --dtop=horizontal --overlay-on=1

  3. Setting up modes for primary display.
    aticonfig --resolution=0,1600x1200,1280x1024,1024x768

  4. Change tv geometry
    aticonfig --tv-geometry=85x90+10-10

    overscan) 90% height and shift 10 pixels right of centre
    and 10 pixels down of centre.

  5. Multiple display adapters.
    List adapters : aticonfig --list-adapters

    Check Temperature of 0 : aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature
    Commit changes for 0 : aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-commitclocks

    note
    atiode is a stress application you start with a required
    parameter -P which specifies the test duration and the optional
    -H parameter to target a specific display to use. For example
    atiode -P 600 -H localhost:0 would test display 0 for 10 minutes
    the return code from the application is the test result
    0: Test successfully completed.
    1: Invalid command-line parameters.
    2: Test failed because of rendering errors.
    3: Target adapter not found.
    4: Test aborted due to unknown reason

    Reinitialize all genlock settings for all displays and adapters:
    aticonfig --glsync-restart

Is this an AGP version of the Radeon HD 3650 ?

I’ve just checked the ATI/AMD site, and they don’t seem to supply Linux drivers for the AGP version… just the PCIe one.

Googling “ubuntu RV635PRO AGP fglrx” seems to suggest it is compiz that is causing the issues.

You could try disabling ALL compiz effects.

If you AREN’T using Unity, I suppose you could even try uninstalling compiz altogether.

BE AWARE - Unity depends on compiz, so will not work without it… there is however unity-2d, which doesn’t depend on compiz, or you should be OK booting to the “classic” GNOME desktop… but don’t hold me to that ???

These are only suggestions, as a lot of other people seem to be in the same boat with the AGP version.

The removing compiz suggestion was from the second to last posting here:
http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=4687721
(in French I’m afraid, so if your French is as bad as mine… you’ll have to run it through Google translate)

Yes it is the AGP version.

I do not like the utility desktop so that’s no problem.

Will try this.

Hi, uninstalled compiz and then installed the listed additional drivers.

System fails to boot still gets stuck at screen with Ubuntu…

I have downloaded the ATI/AMD drivers from the ATI website and extracted them would like to see if they will work but do not know how to install them.

The extracted folder is located at /home/Userone/Downloads/xf86-video-ati-6.8.0

How do I install these drivers?

can you send me a link to where you downloaded the drivers from… as when I looked, there were NO drivers for the AGP version available.

It will also give me the opportunity to look at the drivers to work out how to install.

Yes your correct there do not seem to be AGP drivers.

In fact I have given up and installed my old NVIDIA AGP 4 card with only 64mb compared to the 256mb of the ATI AGP8 card.

I shall have to find a PCI card that works in Linux there are no PCIe slots on my Motherboard.

Thanks again.

nVidia don’t seem to have different drivers for their AGP cards… so maybe one of these would do:

??

nVidia are well known to support Linux better than ATI/AMD.

I can’t personally vouch for this card in 11.04, but if there were problems you could be fairly sure they would be all over Google, and I can’t find any.

Thanks for the tip.

Before I buy a new nVidia card why can’t Windows drivers be used.

I used them to get a plug-in wireless card working so why cant they be used for the graphics card?

If not got my eye on an nVidia AGP card.

First of all I’m not a driver developer (by any means), but from what I gather…

They are 2 completely different things… most network cards are NDIS compliant…

NDIS is a library of functions often referred to as a “wrapper” that hides the underlying complexity of the NIC hardware and serves as a standard interface for level 3 network protocol drivers and the hardware level MAC drivers.

So as I see it, you’re not using the Windows drivers “as such”, but more like extracting the MAC (Media Access Control) drivers/settings “from” the Windows drivers… then using them to access NDIS functions of the card

NOT ALL Windows network card drivers will work with ndiswrapper either.

Graphics drivers are MUCH more complex, and hardware/OS specific they have to hook into the OS and supported graphics API’s in a multitude of ways/places.

For a start, the WHOLE graphics backend and API’s are completely different in Linux.

But as I said I’m no expert on drivers.

New nVidia card has arrived so will report on this once installed.

Thanks again.

Card installed like a dream and working out of the box. Has resolved the rendering issues and other display problems full 3D and 2D operating.

Glad to hear it :slight_smile: … Which card did you end up getting though ? … It may help others looking for an AGP card that works well with Linux / Ubuntu 11.04.

Which card did you get in the end?

Hi, it is a nVidia GeForce 6200 AGP 8X made by EVGA 350Mhz - 512mb - 532Mhz.
