(Solved) Running in software rendering mode

Post by Don_Pedro »

Running in software rendering mode.
Hola a todos,
I got this message ¨Running in software rendering mode¨

I upgraded the Kernel to 3.13.0 27 , I do not know until where and can upgrade the kernel and if there is a fix for Radeon R 2 graphic card. Nothing has changed,
inxi -G
Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Mullins [Radeon APU A4-6000 with R2 Graphics]
X.Org: 1.15.1 drivers: ati (unloaded: vesa,radeon) FAILED: fbdev Resolution: 1366x768@76.0hz
GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits) GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 10.1.0

I run the recommended drivers :
Here drivers https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ynE ... sp=sharing

My fan is running full speed instantly after I run Cinnamon.

What should I do to resolve the probleme?

Thank you in advance.

let's have a look on the exact model

Code: Select all

lspci -nnk | grep -i "VGA\|'Kern'\|3D\|Display" -A2

pretty new system, you will have to try the beta drivers for this card.

Thank you , very useful this link.
In fact I tried before to install the AMD Catalyst Control Center but I did not find the right process.
With your link it worked
Now I can see videos without a CPU at 70 Celsius, only 45.

I should write I could , no I can, because when I restarted my laptop I got another problem. I got a black screen.
I ran the recovery option but it stay frozen and I get this messages: Starting load fallback Graphic devices

I am not sure there is a link between this issue and the AMD Catalyst Control Center.

Cordially

Well , I did not know how to solve the graphic issue and I made some voodoo around the laptop and this morning he started without any problem.
Thank you I don´t get anymore the warning message Running in software rendering mode and the laptop doesn't overheat.

I checked the driver manager and still the same drivers than before.
Should I choose the recommended option ? Or stay on using manually installed drivers ?

thats' the new driver, the first time you rebooted you probably didn't have the xorg.conf but then the driver corrected it and now it works as expected.

Thank you very much that works perfectly (Watching a video Temperature falls from 70c to 42c)

Regarding drivers , I keep in the driver manager the option : continue using a manually installed driver instead to select Xserver-xorg-video-ati (recommended)

Right ?
