fglrx with old Thinkpad R60

Postby JanAcc on Fri Jan 24, 2014 2:25 pm

Hi there,

I am trying to get fglrx running on an old Thinkpad R60. From what I read here I suppose it has an ATI Radeon X1400: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:R60

Unfortunately, I am not really a Linux expert.

I have installed fglrx packages from Debian Testing:
Code: Select all
$ apt policy  fglrx-modules-dkms fglrx-driver 
fglrx-modules-dkms:
  Installed: 1:13.12-3
  Candidate: 1:13.12-3
  Version table:
 *** 1:13.12-3 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:13.8~beta1-3 0
        500 http://mintlinux.mirror.triple-it.nl/debian/incoming/ testing/non-free i386 Packages
fglrx-driver:
  Installed: 1:13.12-3
  Candidate: 1:13.12-3
  Version table:
 *** 1:13.12-3 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:13.8~beta1-3 0
        500 http://mintlinux.mirror.triple-it.nl/debian/incoming/ testing/non-free i386 Packages


However...
Code: Select all
$ fglrxinfo
X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  153 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
  Serial number of failed request:  12
  Current serial number in output stream:  12


...and...
Code: Select all
$ sudo aticonfig --initial
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected



Can anyone give me a hint how I can resolve this?

Thanks
