Thanks #1 pioneercrazed, Jul 17, 2006 Loading... Or in other words: the current acceleration is as much as that chip can do, right? You then need to add a line to the "Device" section of xorg.conf for your video card that points this connector to the "Identifier" you used in the "Monitor" section of ATI MOBILITY RADEON (M6) 4X AGP and 3D architecture Works No special procedure required during installation.

ATI Video Drivers. () This site maintains listings of video and graphics features ATI Mobility Radeon M6-M (8MB embedded) or M6-D (16MB embedded12409 downloads). Default: on. You can use the "xvattr" tool to query/set those attributes at runtime. Option "ScalerWidth" "integer" This sets the overlay scaler buffer width.
Default: off with AGP due to issues with GPU->host transfers with some AGP bridges, on otherwise. Option "EXAVSync" "boolean" This option attempts to avoid tearing by stalling the engine until the display controller has passed the destination region. Option "VGAAccess" "boolean" Tell the driver if it can do legacy VGA IOs to the card. Note that this only affects the "true" overlay via Xv, and won't affect things like textured video.
Valid options are: ntsc pal pal-m pal-60 ntsc-j scart-pal The default value is undefined. XV_CRTC XV_CRTC is used to control which display controller (crtc) the textured adapter synchronizes the screen update with when XV_VSYNC is enabled. Option "TVStandard" "string" Used to specify the default TV standard if you want to use something other than the BIOS default. Option "EXAPixmaps" "boolean" Under KMS, to avoid thrashing pixmaps in/out of VRAM on low memory cards, we use a heuristic based on VRAM amount to determine whether to allow EXA to

Some platforms like PowerPC have issues with those, and they aren’t necessary unless you have a real text mode in console. This may affect performance slightly. The default is ’on’(1). Caution: Specifying an EDID that doesn’t exactly match your display may damage your hardware, as it allows the driver to specify timings beyond the capabilities of your display.
Specifying 0 results in all offscreen video RAM being reserved for EXA and only GART memory being available for OpenGL textures. my review here Option "PanelSize" "string" Should only be used when driver cannot detect the correct panel size.

I recently upgraded from ubuntu 10 to ubuntu 12 and after the upgrade lost all my 3d acceleration: no cube for example. The default is off. BIOS -- Remain unchanged from BIOS setting. click site User contributions on this site are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 4.0 International License.
This is necessary for properly resuming consoles when in VGA text mode, but shouldn't be if the console is using radeonfb or some other graphic mode driver. Option "DefaultTVDACAdj" "boolean" Use the default driver provided TVDAC Adj values rather than the ones provided by the BIOS. ACPI Suspend was not compiled with my kernel, so the command /usr/bin/apm -s does not work.
Internet Browser. DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Works No special procedure required during installation Broadcom 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g Works Installed with Ndis Wrapper and XP drivers.

With EXA, the remainder of video RAM is reserved for EXA offscreen management.
Values other than 1536 and 1920 may not make sense. Overview about radeon development code: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati/ 3. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver Well it is listed : Code: RV250 Radeon 9000PRO/9000, M9 But i've not gotten this card to work in newer Ubuntus. http://advianetwork.com/ati-mobility/ati-mobility-m4-linux-driver.html Make sure you install the default Developer packages.
Option "R4xxATOM" "boolean" This option enables modesetting on R/RV4xx chips using AtomBIOS. EXA is a newer acceleration architecture with better performance for the Render and Composite extensions. And it didn't work : still blank screen. To switch the default mail reader, follow: Applications > More Preferences > Preferred Applications.
KMS ColorTiling2D is only supported on R600 and newer chips. This can help reduce heat and increase battery life by reducing power usage when the system is idle (DPMS active). If disabled, no scanline synchronization is performed, meaning tearing will likely occur. Option "DepthBits" "integer" Precision in bits per pixel of the shared depth buffer used for 3D acceleration.
Option "IgnoreEDID" "boolean" Do not use EDID data for mode validation. The last comments did let me find a solution. If you use this option you must use this option for all instances of the driver. Only valid on PowerPC.
