I'm getting black screen when using radeon_hd on my FireGL V7200. enabled the device in Driver.cpp by altering line '#if 0' to '#if 1'.

I have the radeon_hd_bios_1002_7104_0.bin dump, but don't know if it's appropriate to upload it to the wiki? I could send it by email, just let me know :)

Just connected the box to another monitor (via dvi->vga) and now I get "Out of range".

Is there an easy way of enforcing the use of a particular mode?

comment:2 by kallisti5, 10 years ago

Those are commented out as the older Radeon HD cards require lots of workarounds.

They are planned, but newer chipsets are taking priority at the moment.

Definitely a good enhancement though! :)

A few notes on your syslog:

the bad

  • GPU thermal status: 0C
    • expected, no thermal monitoring for legacy cards?
  • radeon_hd_init: mapping a frame buffer of 256MB out of 262144MB video ram
    • unit is incorrect, need to fix. OK for the moment though as PCI FB size fallback is triggered
  • radeon_hd_init: Can't find an AtomBIOS rom! Trying shadow rom...
    • should be fixed with legacy AtomBIOS reads. Shadow rom may not work right.

the good

  • connector detection working in legacy mode (good!)
