Hardware acceleration on AMD APU E-450 with Radeon HD 6320

Postby Ukrop » Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:34 am

Hi everybody!

Here's one more beginner :)

I installed LM on my HTPC to learn Linux. In KODI v.16 some of my videos have really bad shutter. They play perfectly fine on Win7 (it's still dual boot - to verify things like that).

I suspect hardware acceleration is not enabled. I read alot but can't figure out what proper driver do I need (looks like AMD abandoned old cards...). What is the best driver should I use? How can I get hardware acceleration? (I don't have such option in KIDO for now...)

Here is part of inxi -Fxz:

System: Host: ZBox Kernel: 4.10.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)

Thanks in advance!!!!

Did you max out shared memory for the integrated video in the BIOS?
For mint 18.X your only option is the open source drivers.
For mint 17.3 you can use the FGLRX driver set with your HD6300- series.
If you have a half height chassis only, you can get a GT 1030 for $75 USD, 30W card

I'd recommend a cheap Nvidia card or doing a clean reinstall of 17.3. Frankly if I was still using AMD and the card was supported in fglrx I wouldn't touch 18.x.

Also, I don't think a 5 year oldf AMD integrated card is enough for Cinnamon plus a weighty media app like Kodi. Try Xfce and a faster media player.

Thanks for reply!
The strange thing is - this machine runs the same Kodi 16 perfectly fine in Windows 7... And I assumed that Linux should be even better for older machines...

I really want to get to know LInux better...
