Hi All,

Please note: Hardware 3D acceleration doesn't work with the Radeon HD7xxx series and above (Radeon SI). You need a Radeon HD6xxx series or below.

If you have a Radeon HD7xxx or above (Radeon SI) installed in your X1000 and X5000, then please prevent the libglamor module from loading. It is loaded if a Radeon HD7xxx or above card is detected and causes xorg to crash.

Code: Select all
sudo mv /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so.bak


@Casey
Could you please rename the libglamoregl.so to libglamoregl.so.bak in your next img?

Thanks,
Christian

Hi Casey,

Many thanks for the updates. I was able to install them today. :-) I haven't found any issues yet.

Screenshot of Fienix PowerPC with Mesa 18.3.4, LibreOffice 6.1.5.2, Arctic Fox 27.9.15, and with the alpha5 of kernel 5.1 on an A-EON X1000 (We are very proud, that the official mainline vanilla Linux kernel supports our X1000 out of the box since version 5.0.):

Casey,

Thanks a lot for TVTime! :-) It works very well with my analog television PCI card WinTV Express with a BT878A chip.
