I just tried to begin installation of Ubuntu (with initrd.gz) with vmlinux39 kernel but I can't see the installation panels
with HD6670 and/or R9200.
=> Failed

I presume you mean the vmlinux39pw-1.2? If so this will not work with Radeon HD series 6 cards. You need to use the latest kernel vmlinuz-3.5.7 with Series 5 & 6 cards

Note: I am continuing to investigate the issue.

Thank,
Yes it was it.
I wanted to try another kernel, because I used the vmlinux357 the first time and hade the "no input" problem.

Hoping that you will find the problem :P

Hello all,
I'v posted a question on MintPPC thread to know if it's possible to inhibit the use of a GFX card at startup (to deactivate the use of my Radeon 9250).

Hoping...

Great !

Thanks to the advices of rkmugen on MintPPC forum,
I have the Radeon accelerated drivers working with the 2 Radeon cards on my X1000 (by inhibiting the old Radeon 9250 card).

Now I don't have to unplug my 9250 when I want to play to SuperTuxKart on Linux :)

You just have to :
1) issue a "lspci" command to show where is physically located your RadeonHD card

2) create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf, mine looks like this

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "radeon"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Device0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1920x1080_75.00"
EndSubSection
EndSection

3) And voila !

Thank again rkmugen :)

Good work! I'll see if I can do the same here, following your lead, zz10dh.

LATER EDIT: It works! I'm using your exact text, and I'm getting 1070-1090fps on glxgears now. Have installed Blender 2.63 under MintPPC, and the interface is downright snappy now. Good work.

nice i get 1458 fps with glxgears wih my RadeonHD 5450.

btw i have tried supertux 0.7.3 (and 0.8 too) but no joystick are useable.
I use a Keyboard/Mouse/DVI-Switcher (2 Compuer on one Monitor with the same Mounse & Keyboard).
Is that the Problem ?

Thanks for tracking this down. I also get around 1500 fps with Linux Mint and RadeonHD 6570.

Ists a little creepy Linux on X1000.
I must make some Coldboot to geht to the Desktop of mintppc11.
On some Coldboots I get a "segmentation fault" Then Reset and try again and voila ist geting good or another Rest is needet.
OS4.1.6 boots fine only Linux gets wrong.
If boots to the mintppc Loginscreen the System runs fine.

I have 2GB inside as a Single Module. Better use 2x1GB ?

Interesting inhibiting the Radeon 9250 with the 10-monitor.conf fix also works with Debian Wheezy with a dual gfx card configuration (RadeonHD 6570 & Radeon 9250) :-)
