Fedora 11 Fixing Various Problems

July 2, 2009 4 comments

0)  Graphic Driver Problems

– For ATI RadeonHD cards (especially x1250 and x1200)

yum install xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd

if /etc/X11/xorg.conf doesnt exist
yum install system-config-display
Run system-config-display –reconfig in terminal.

Modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf

"Device" Section
Driver "radeonhd"
Option "DRI" "True"

– Or Install fglrx (At the time of writing of post official rpmfusion drivers dont exist)

Hence Fedora 10 ‘s kernel needs to be installed .Refer this post

(Make sure that you use correct driver since ati recently removed support for many cards )

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=224519

1)  Enabling OSS
(This is needed for Real Player 11 as it crashes with ALSA)

(In Root /Sudo Mode)

nano /etc/modprobe.d/dist-oss.conf

uncomment line as mentioned

2)  Fixing glitchy sound problems.
There are many solutions to the sound problems listed in http://fedoraforums.org
They mainly deal with time scheduling
Other solutions consist of

– Enable OSS (See Above)
– Install OSS v4.x ( This replaces all the ALSA/Pulse Audio kernel modules)

3)  Enabling TAP in MousePad / Touchpad

– Temporary Measure

synclient TapButton1=1
synclient TapButton2=1

– Permanent Measures

– System > Prefrences > Mouse >Touchpad > Enable mouse clicks

OR

– Modifying xorg.conf

See this link.

NOTE: IF YOU FIND ANY PROBLEM / ALTERNATE SOLUTION WITH ABOVE FIXES PLEASE POST A COMMENT.

Installing ATI fglrx for compiz Fedora 10

December 8, 2008 11 comments

These instructions are for installing fglrx on ATI cards it also removes the flickering that radeon might be giving.
You could also follow the guide at fedora forums but this is more simple.(Using 8.12 Driver)

(if you have followed other methods, please roll-back to previous system state,remove related packages)

1)Get Fedora 9s libdrm

32 Bit

rpm -ivh --nodeps --oldpackage http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os/Packages/libdrm-2.4.0-0.11.fc9.i386.rpm

64 Bit

rpm -ivh --nodeps --oldpackage http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/libdrm-2.4.0-0.11.fc9.x86_64.rpm

2)Go to AMD official Site Download the driver:

http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/linux/linux-radeon.html

3)Install driver

./ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run

4)Create a blank xorg.conf in /etc/X11 (if u have a xorg.conf ,delete and make empty file)

5)

aticonfig --initial -f

6) Edit xorg.conf

Add following to “Device”

   Option      "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
   Option      "VideoOverlay" "on"

7)In the end add

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

Save

8)Backup Old initrd

mv /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.0

9)Remake initrd for the kernel (So the radeon module is not force loaded)

mkinitrd  /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img `uname -r`

10) Prevent libdrm from being upgraded

perl -i -pe "s/([.*])/1nexclude=libdrm/"  /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
perl -i -pe "s/([.*])/1nexclude=libdrm/" /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo

11)Open

/boot/grub/grub.conf in root mode

Go to

kernel

line and add

vga=0xmode

mode for me was

323

which was 1024×768 32 bit

12)Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

Add radeon

13)Reboot and Voila !!
