ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

I'm currently using the AMD Catalyst proprietary driver for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 series video card under Statler.  If I install Waldorf, will I still need to use the proprietary driver?  Anyone else successfully using the AMD Catalyst driver under Waldorf?

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

I'm not sure if the temperature of my desktop Radeon HD 4500 is any cooler with Statler, but as I mentioned in the thread about the latest Waldorf point release, just about all of the rendering issues with the generic drivers seem to have been resolved.  Don't know if the legacy Catalyst drivers are even still available in smxi...

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

@KT :  I use Catalyst with Waldorf.

However, I haven't accepted the recent Xorg updates so if your question is "are they compatible?" the answer is I don't know. But yeah, ATI works with Waldorf, although I don't use smxi so I can't vouch for that method.

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

Catalyst no longer supports your card. They dropped support 7 or 8 months ago. You will not be able to use either the current version of Catalyst with Waldorf, because the support for the card is dropped, not the newer one, because Waldorf has a newer Xserver. Ubuntu LTS still has the older version of Xserver and Catalyst 12.4 in their repos, so this is your best bet for prop drivers. otherwise, you will be stuck with the open source driver.

Sorry, KT - I missed your model number. I have an HD 5400 series and we're still supported . For the time being.

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

My Mobility HD 4200 runs great just with the default Xorg driver, radeonhd. No need for Catalyst. It does gaming and Googleearth. From xorg-server 1.13 and up this card and I believe your 4500 aren't supported anymore in Catalyst/Fglrx, so if that's what you want do not upgrade xorg and use an older Catalyst version, the last one to support it was 12.4.

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

I was. Take a look at the last post in the Catalyst link in my sig, there seems to be some progress from AMD for you guys with older cards. I can't test anything, since I no longer use AMD.

Re: ATI Mobility Radeon Video Card Under Waldorf

Just in case you missed it, the 1.13 update to fglrx-legacy doesn't solve the Xserver incompatibility. All it does is make the TF2 beta work. I'm sticking with Ubuntu 12.04 for the time being.
