Re: Mint 17.3 random freeze - fglrx?

Im not 100% but i think the hd 58xx series is legacy. Which means open source drivers only.

well it says it's supported and I followed carefully this guide http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Trusty_Installation_Guide#Installing_Proprietary_Drivers_a.k.a._Catalyst.2Ffglrx

everything works great! games, tests, benchmarks and it still freezes randomly!

at this point I'm not sure if its GPU drivers or something else related to it :(

If that were true it'd boot to a black screen atfer installation of fglrx ... anything older than the 5xxx series is legacy.

Cinnamon may be too muich for that card though. Tried disabling all possible compositing effects?

I played Battlefield 3 on this graphic card! :P

well it can be a good idea to try using MATE for a day or two and see if freeze will still appear

Wrong, unless you mean dl'ing the live CD iso and testing that. Installing multiple DEs is a bad idea. It's a good way to break your OS.

Good to know. Thanks!
ok I purged MATE which was installed all this time with Cinnamon... I guess that's probably my fault

Due to my hardware, I am using Linux Mint 17.3 MATE. I had random freezes in Linux only until I disabled "EuP" in the BIOS, which is related to Suspend and Hibernate I think. That and disabling Hibernate for MATE removed all random freezes. Before the change, Hibernate would cause a predictable crash 2 hours after resuming a session. Trying different versions of the Linux kernel changed nothing.

reinstalling fglrx all over again fixed the problem (maybe purging Mate as well)

also it turns out I missed "sudo amdconfig --initial -f" after fglrx install but before rebooting :roll:
