Linux for 580X Chipset?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've never had a distro of Linux recognize my HDDs, and I assume it's due to the fact that I'm using not only an AMD chipset (and ATI is notoriously bad for Linux) but that this chipset is brand spanking new. I've tried the most recent Suse, Fedora, and Ubuntu, and none of them have recognized it. Does anyone know how I could either modify a kernel to recognize it, or if there is a Kernel now that recognizes it?

I'm willing to try Slackware, if need be. I'm that desperate...

Ya, the latest versions, according to distrowatch.org, of all of those distros.

if not then perhaps drivers have not been developed.

Just to clear something up here, so far, ATI has been getting much better at linux drivers. As for your chipset, that is very peculiar why nothing is working for you, definitely try slack.

See here:
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/...E14607,00.html

And here:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=Xpress+3200

Your chipset was renamed (from Xpress 3200 to 580X) after the AMD/ATI marriage... Looks to be like the RAID/IDE setting in your BIOS...... Change from RAID to IDE and it looks like you should be back in business....

Good Luck!!!!!

First of all your problem may not have anything to do with the chipset. Get the Slack DVD and boot from huge26.s boot kernel. try others which support newer and larger hard drives (there is a command to view all boot kernels and descriptions in the boot cd.. I kept trying finally one saw my 320GB SATA drive

Slackware is for you my friend

use the 2.6.x.x. SMP kernel

read the "slackbook" google it, slackbook makes slackware EASIER than other distros trust me

however

try that first. linux is VERY sensitive to BIOS settings when detecting hardware

Thanks for all of the help, guys. I also found an FAQ on how to get an x1950 Pro running in Linux, as well. And I've also heard Slackware can be the most gaming friendly, too.

When I get home from work, looks like I have an adventure on ym hands

have you used slackware? its an adventure alright, albeit a fun one

and yeah ATI's drivers are a LOT better in the past few months

And for "gaming-friendly" its not even a question; slackware 10 with a 3800+ (single core) and 6200LE played CS:S in WinE fine. Imagine using cedega instead of wine....

if you have trouble with resolution like i did, remember to increase max HorizSync provided your monitor can do it. This allows for any resolutions above 1024X768. Make the max 82 in xorg.conf if you have a good monitor. (You dont know what i am talking about yet but you will )

good luck

edit: once you go slack you never go back
