Thread: BSD+Radeon

  1. #1


    I installed a new Radeon (yay!) in my OpenBSD box and went a head and reinstalled the OS and now it's going nuts. It boots up fine, but when it gets to the part where it recognizes the video card it see's it is a Radeon and then the screen splits in two and mirrors it self. Sometimes it buffes itself and I can only see what I type after I hit enter about 100 times to get that far down. Anyone know of any problems with the console drivers on Open/NetBSD? FreeBSD?

    The ATI AIW Radeon doesn't *seem* like the reight driver. In fact before it gets loaded the console works without a hitch ... I just can't seem to disable it or find any mention of a bug/solution.

    I say get ab<nother card. ATI support for Linux is below mediocre. I guess putting it in a OpenBSD box would be a total waste. Get your money back and get a nvidia TNT2 which is a very decent card and works great on a lot of OS'es.

    I went ahead and transfered the box's content to an older box with a Rage card and it works fine. Oddly enough, NetBSD doesn't have the same problem probing for console drivers dealing with ATI ... but their in house build of X is almost as bad as FreeBSD's!
