#8289 closed bug (fixed)

Vesa driver is used on AMD C-50 or AMD C-60 Apu's

Reported by: lxstoian Owned by: kallisti5
Priority: normal Milestone: R1/alpha4
Component: Drivers/Graphics/radeon_hd Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Acer, W500 Cc:

Has a Patch: no Platform: x86

Description

They are running on 6xxx family gpu's : Radeon HD 6250 and Radeon HD 6290. They are basically the same gpu's with the only difference being clock speed. The C-50 machine is an ASUS 1215b netbook while the C-60 is the Acer Iconia Tab w500. I can provide any feedback necessary from the Acer as Haiku seems to boot on the Asus when ever it feels like.

The output of the listdev command on those systems would be interesting. Chances are it's just a case of the driver not being aware of their PCI IDs.

Here it is the output.

PCIID provided added in hrev43674, let us know your results.

Thanks it's working now on the C-60 APU. But on the C-50 ( Asus 1215b ) I get a very distorted screen. I'll upload a picture of the screen and a listdev if I can get it to boot in safe mode.

The screen of the Asus 1215b is actually still the same as in a previous ticket I reported : https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/8059. This is the same screen I get even if I boot into safe mode and force the use of vesa.

hrev43767 should resolve this issue so the native resolution should be set properly.

Can you test as soon as you have access to a hrev43767 or higher build?

comment:8 Changed 7 years ago by lxstoian

Tested hrev43768 and there has been no change to the behaviour.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by kallisti5

need system logs. Could you grab /var/log/syslog or /common/var/log/syslog and attach?

On the acer w500 ( AMD APU C-60 ) the ati driver now works great. Nothing has changed though for the asus 1215b ( AMD APU C-50 )

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Glad to hear I finally fixed at least one of these regressions :)

probably solved via hrev43810

Yes, now Haiku set native resulution on Acer W500, but first it shows white screen(does this do any harm to device?). I don't know how to control screen brigtness. On Haiku device discharge much faster, then in Windows 7.
