ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600


I installed from ATI website and now my display is refreshing verrrry slow. If I move a window from one place to another on the desktop it leaves a trace… also when I scroll up or down a document or a page it is very slow.

If I go to sysinfo:/ it shows me that I have the fglrx driver installed.

I have a Toshiba A210 laptop.
Please let me know what I can do… thank you.

There is a “one click install” method in the topic heading “The Easy Way” here. Maybe try that and see if that provides better performance-there’s also other useful info at that link.

Make sure you remove the built in driver first, actually to think of it the included ati driver should work just fine with your card. Go into Yast and get rid of the existing drivers, then try reinstalling the new 8.6 ones, if this is in suse 11 do a custom install and make sure you prepare the kernel first, the one click install right now installs the old drivers ( which should still work fine for a hd2600 tho ).

The instuctions for preparing th kernel are is in the ATI page rad1er linked, if that alone does not work double check that you have all the needed libs etc also listed on that page, some are not installed by default and can cause an issue.

Edit, just incase they just updated the drivers to 8.7,

So, as far as i know… Mobility radeon is not supported…

I got Mobility radeon hd 2400XT will it works?

Hi, It’s probably that you have skipped some configuration of fglrx or sax2 is not aware of your modifications. I have also HD2600. I have installed ATI driver by compiling it. Here’s the link of how have i done it SUSE/openSUSE - Works fine. In step 5 you should create specific to your system RPM e.g. for opensuse 11.1 64 bit

./ati-driver-installer-*.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE111-AMD64

hope it will be helpfull
