PostPosted: Tue 20 Oct 2009, 18:37    Post_subject:  Xorg driver update for various cards
Sub_title: for puppy versions with Xorg server 1.3 (X11R7.3)
 

Hmmm .....

I've been wondering about these ... I thought I'll give it a shot and see how it goes ..... I've made binary only driver pets for xorg server 1.3 that I believe is currently in use across all versions of puppy 4 series ... These drivers are the ones that compiles cleanly against xorg-server 1.3 ... Some later driver versions are now requiring newer xorg-server version at least 1.4 or above ......

If anyone tried these, please post some results, if any ...

Q&A

Q1. Are these really the latest drivers ?
A1. Yes and no. It depends on whether each driver can be cleanly
compiled against xorg-server 1.3 ..... Most of the driver pets
above are the recently released Sep/Oct 2009 xorg drivers ...

For drivers that wouldn't compile cleanly, I backtrack until I find one
that will .....


Q2. Which ATI drivers to use ?
A2. There's four driver modules listed :

1. xf86-video-ati-6.12.4-i486.pet
Supported cards by this driver:
R100/R200 - Radeon 7000 upto Radeon 9250
R300/R400/R500 - Radeon 9500 upto X1950
R600/R700 - HD2300 upto HD4890
It is also a wrapper that calls mach64 and r128 if that's being detected.

2. xf86-video-mach64-6.8.1-i486.pet
This is a driver for older ATI Mach64 cards; normally will be
called by the ati module above if such a card is detected.

3. xf86-video-r128-6.8.1-i486.pet
This is a driver for older ATI Rage128 cards; normally will be
called by the ati module above if such a card is detected.

4. xf86-video-radeonhd-1.2.5-i486.pet
or xf86-video-radeonhd-1.3.0-i486.pet
(note: radeonhd-1.3.0 is latest with bugfix from xorg-git)
This is a separate driver branch for recent ATI RadeonHD Rx500 -
Rx700 series. I don't have such a card, so I'm unable to tell the
difference ...

So, if you're using a Radeon series card, it's probably safe to
say that the xf86-video-ati-6.12.4-i486.pet will work just fine ...


Q3. Which driver is suitable for AMD integrated graphics ?
A3. For most parts, AMD chipset with integrated graphics are
based on ATI GPUs ..... Below is a non-exhaustive list of recent AMD
integrated graphics which should work with the ati driver :

1. AMD 690 series : 690V, 690G, 690T, 690E
2. AMD 700 series : 740G/RS, 760G/RS, 780V/RS, 780G/V, 790GX


Here be more dragons ?

The xf86-video-ati-6.12.4-i486.pet worked perfectly in Puppy 4.31 with the AMD (used to be ATI) 690G graphics chip on my Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H motherboard. Without the .pet, xorgwizard did not see the maximum (1440 x 900) resolution of my LCD, and other resolutions gave a distorted desktop. Now everything is hunky-dory. Very Happy

thanks for these Patriot, i wasn't sure which to use for my hd3850 but it looks like the same thing that worked for Flash (the first one i tried) worked for me, the xf86-video-ati-6.12.4-i486.pet and also in 4.31. man i'm glad you made these because xorg was choosing the vesa driver and the 60Hz refresh was no good for any serious use. i tried manually changing the driver to radeon, radeonhd, or ati in xorg.conf but that did not work. now i am getting the 1280x1024 in 75Hz refresh plus the mesa glx driver is working. it's all much, much better thanks to you.

Hmmm .....

Flash, playdaz

Thanks for letting me know that ..... I will be trying out the ati module for someone later ... and yes, GLX should be running on most ATI cards except maybe for the more recent card models (R6xx/RV6xx/R7xx/RS7xx) ... Perhaps others can verify this ...

As for me, I'm having a positive result too with the updated openchrome drivers ... GLX is also running now ...

That ati module also worked for a Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H motherboard, which has an AMD 780G North Bridge (video) chip. The LCD plugged into the motherboard's HDMI outlet can do 1360 x 768. Xorg would let me choose that resolution, but the round icons were oval with the driver that came with Puppy 4.31. With your driver they are round.

If you have xorg dri modules installed (either this xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1.pet or this xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet) then open a terminal and do this :

# glxinfo
# glxgears
