    Default AMD / Intel drivers problem

    Hello,

    The AMD proprietary driver doesn't properly be installed on my Lenovo G500 @ OpenSUSE 12.3. The related hardware:
    • Intel Core i5-3230M;
    • Intel HD Graphics 4000;
    • AMD Radeon HD 8750M.


    Before installing AMD driver, the Intel one works properly: glxinfo and glxgears can be run.

    I install the AMD driver as follows:

    Code:
    {init 3}
    # ./amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run
    # aticonfig --initial -f 
    # aticonfig --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf {also tried without this}
    # reboot
    But after this X don't start.

    The resulting Xorg.0.log:
    Code:

    I have a similar notebook with Intel HD Graphics 4000 and AMD Radeon HD 8750M GPUs, but I cannot run X with fglrx driver. As I understand, you could do this on your Acer Aspire E1-572G. Could you give some advice at AMD/Intel drivers problem, please (now I have openSUSE 13.1 and the last drivers, but the content of outputs hasn't changed)? Despite that thread is old, the problem is still actual... Thank you in advance
    Hello

    I can try to recall what I did, maybe test run it again if it works. I dropped this laptop on the floor about 8 months ago, hard-drive and screen has gone.
    But I'm positive, it did work.

    I had a lot of various issues with it, however, most was sorted in the end.
    I used openSUSE 13.1 on it, but with a newer kernel; the kernel sorted out some issues with hibernating.


    BTW, have you looked here: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglrx; could be that the one click solution works better for you, if you haven't tried that already.

    I installed a new hard-drive in the laptop, connected an external monitor, installed opensuse 13.1, updated the new system and installed the FGLRX proprietary driver with One_Click_Install (believe I did it manually last time).

    The Catalyst Control Centre wouldn't launch, so I ran the initiate command:
    Code:
    aticonfig --initial
    Then a reboot, launched the Controle Centre and selected the dedicated driver there, then I rebooted again.

    It was quite straight forward, and it seems to work fine.

    I'm not good at trobleshooting but a guess is that you may need to specify a modeline.
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Configur...nitor_settings

    There are some threads on the forum concerning various ways and experiences of doing this, serach for 'xrandr', 'modeline' etc
    I have done it myself a couple of times, did it locally by setting up a .profile configuration file.

    This is a guess though.

    BTW, have you tested with an external monitor?

    No, radeon is _not_ loaded, it is just listed as being available and supporting the card.
    A blacklist just prevents automatic loading during boot, you could still load it manually if you wanted (but it won't work of course if the card is already in use by another module).

    To the original problem:
    The driver you installed (13.12) is quite old, the current version is 14.12.
    Try to install that, but I'd rather recommend the packages from the openSUSE repo (it is available for 12.3 still as well):
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglrx
    (uninstall the version you installed now completely first though)

    But OTOH, the latest driver seems to have problems with certain chipset compbinations on hybrid systems, on 13.2 at least.
    So if that doesn't work, you might also try the latest Beta version.
    You can install that with Sebastian Siebert's latest makerpm-amd script:
    https://www.sebastian-siebert.de/
    Please ask if you need help or further instructions, that page is available in german only.

    Oh, and if you use GDM that might be a problem as well. On 13.2 at least this doesn't work at all with fglrx. So in that case, try switching to a different DM (lightdm would be a good alternative).

    I doubt that would help.
    According to the Xorg log, fglrx is crashing.

    Ah ok. I didn't see that the original post here was from 2014.
    In that case a current Xorg.0.log would be good to have. The one here is probably not relevant any more if she is using the latest fglrx and 13.1 now.

    Anyway, most things I posted still apply I think.

    Yes, but as far as I could see thee EEID did not list, report, a range either; but it was a guess.
