Re: Help: desktop freezes randomly

I've found a temporary solution to the problem and I'm still testing it. Because I was suspicious about the open source driver of ATI graphic cards during 3D acceleration, I tried to force my graphic card into maximum compatibility settings. Previously I was relied completely on the KMS for manageme...

Whenever I was changing the playback time using timeline (during playback of MKV files) sound of the movie muted and I have to change the audio settings to repair it. I found a solution for this problem: deleting the .gstrea...

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

All the problems are now solved in the 32bit version of LMDE with this kernel: "linux-image-686-pae". After 6 years of using linux (2006-2012), this is for the first time it is able to manage my computer hardware the way I want.

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

Thank you guys. I really appreciate your support and kindness. This power management thing was optional to me. It seems if I activate the GPU power management there is no way to check its efficacy (ie. check the GPU temperature, Check the GPU frequency or ...). Also, I want to remain in LMDE boundar...

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

Thank you AlbertP and sumski.
The final solution was Installing a new Kernel 2.6.35 or above. But I have seriouse problem with both wifi and bluetooth drivers in these new kernels. :(
2.6.39 -> debian testing
2.6.39 -> Liquorix

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

Have you changed your sources.list to stable? 1. No. How should I do that? I want to be stable but I want to remain rolling release as well. is it possible? This was the way gentoo linux handle things. 2. Unfortunatly I updated kernel to 2.6.39-2-amd64 before I see your post. Now bluetooth and wire...

Ok. thank. now I can kill X. But how can I restart X after X is killed, because I cannot start gdm3 service again. one important thing I think I should have kernel 2.6.35+ to be able to powersave properly. My current kernel is 2.6.32. uname -a Linux keivan-laptop 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Nov 25 18:...

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

It did not kill x. I think there is a problem with my keyboard. It does not have a separate SysRq key. There is a key for both SysRq and Print Screen instead. I should hold Fn to be able to use SysRq.

Re: Ati Open-source driver's Pawer Management for laptops

You can just create the file.
Is there any auto-configuration method for this purpose?
