New Grafic cart

Postby musa » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:47 pm

Hi
I have changed my graphics card and set a msiRadeon R9 270X 2GB in my X1000.
The run fine under the AmigaOS but afterwards I could not boot linux. I've just been lucky to get into ubuntu 16.04 and here without recognition of the graphics card ..
Is there any Kernler I could try with greater chance of success. Most attempts to boot ends with a kernel panic. I've tried Ubuntu 17.04 Debian 8 Fedora and whip without success.
Thanks

Hi Musa,

Unfortunately your new graphics card doesn't support hardware 3D acceleration on Linux PPC. You can use Linux without hardware 3D acceleration with the fbdev driver.

Please mount the other Linux partitions from the booted ubuntu MATE 16.04 and replace the radeon video driver with the fbdev driver in the xorg.conf files. (/etc/X11/xorg.conf)
Could you please post some error messages?

Thanks,
Christian

Thank you Christian. I will try tomorrow to take some photos while the boot run until it stops with a kernel panic. I also have a Radeon 9250 in my X1000. Can I use it to run Linux and if so how do I force Linux to use it.

I tested an ATi Radeon 9250 PCI graphics card in my A1-X1000 in 2014. CFE recognised this PCI card and Linux booted fine. Hardware 3D acceleration worked but very slow. I don't recommend any old Radeon PCI cards for 3D apps on Linux.

Code: Select all
-Display-
Resolution      : 1280x1024 pixels
OpenGL Renderer      : Mesa DRI R200 (RV280 5960) PowerPC 64/Altivec TCL DRI2
X11 Vendor      : The X.Org Foundation


FYI:

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 :)

The ATi Radeon 9250 PCI graphics card supports hardware 3D acceleration on Linux and on OS4.1 but unfortunately this card is very slow.

We'll try to solve the problem with the 3D hardware acceleration with Radeon SI graphics cards.
