Embedded ATI Radeon 7000-M
« on: July 04, 2014, 07:42:00 pm »
 I have a poweredge 2850 with an Embedded ATI Radeon 7000-M
 AVWizard is not running :(
 /usr/bin/aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
 any ideas on what I could do to get it to work?
 apparently it defaults to: radeon
 and kde looks great with that driver
 but orbiter is acting funny

Hi,

Are you running 10.04, 12.04 or 14.04?

Cheers.

lspci -nn | grep VGA as well.

I have a lot of work to do on Radeon.
For now, install the latest driver from AMD and hash out CheckVideoDriver in /etc/init.d/a0start_avwizard

I don't think this will work. I think something in avwiz will try and run the check that is installing the wrong driver too... but am not positive. Will need to look. Worth a shot though.
I never quit... I just ping out.

I commented out CheckVideoDriver in /etc/init.d/a0start_avwizard and verified that the ati drivers are installed.

Now when I run the avwizard the end of the log says:

CheckVideoDriver is run from a few locations so commenting out that one instance will not solve any issues it is causing unfortunately.
