Hello, I'm not sure if I'm posting it in the right place...
I've got a ACER Aspire 8935g with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 and a 'Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller'. It seems that Fedora 12 is using the second one which is a basic low-power GPU only. I would like it to use the Radeon, but so far failed to do it.
I tried installing the drivers from http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...5&lang=English
, but graphical login wouldn't show up (switched to virtual console 2 and uninstalled the drivers, rebooted and it works again)
Running system-config-display crashes:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 378, in <module>
dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, videocard.VideoCardInfo())
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 640, in __init__
if len(self.xconfig.layout.adjacencies) > 1:
IndexError: index out-of-bounds
but with the --reconfig paramter it shows up. When I change the 'Video Card' in 'Hardware' to 'Radeon' part and reboot, the graphic login doesn't show up again. (restoring the old settings via console and rebooting does make it work again).
Basicly it's not a very important problem, seeing as the system and GNOME work, but some advice would be nice
