Hello,


could please someone update me on graphic hardware acceleration status on Linux (Mint) on fit-pc3? I have been fighting for 2 days to make it work - and now I read that some failures are expected and some patch is in the process.
Should I understand that failure to start full hardware acceleration is not my fault? (I need 1080p full decoding real-time) How long should I expect to wait for a patch?

Thank you,
Arturas


Can you please specify what exactly the problem? After installing all the driver packages, you are able to gain 1080 HW acceleration

yes I did install those packages. actually there is no any issues before installing them (no/partial hw acceleration of course) but after installing them the system hangs after boot in a random moment and only hw reset helps.

please advice.

Are you able to open a console (by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F2 key) during the "hang up" event?

if there is full hardware acceleration - it is not activated...
After installing all drivers on Mint (according to wiki on your web page), when viewing high-movement scenes in 1080p in XBMC, the screen goes in small squares (~3x3 cm) in different colors (i.e. something similiar to large-scale pixelisation). XBMC is in default settings. When viewing slow scenes - video is ok.
I have the same problems with XBMCbuntu live environment.
I do not face such problems on Windows.

Please use this code to install a appropriate version of XBMC

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-xvba
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-bin

I did the following:

1. Clean install linuxmint-12-gnome-dvd-64bit.iso to usb flash drive via UNetBootIn, 1.7Gb writable file
2. Wireless network connection
3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates xvba-va-driver vainfo
5. Additional packages were installed: fglrx-amdcccle-updates lib32gcc1 libc-bin libc-dev-bin libc6-i386
6. reboot
7. XWindows not working (blank screen), going Ctrl+Alt+F2;
service lightdm stop; service lightdm start; not help; cold restart - ok
8. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-xvba
9. sudo apt-get update
10. sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-bin
+ bunch of additional packages were installed
11. start "xbmc" from xterm - open test video file - video artifacts when intense scene + no sound
verify in settings - hardware acceleration XVBA is checked.

So I confirm I still have the same problem.
I can send you video file I use for testing.

No I am not. the keyboard is not responsible at all, I am not even able to switch the caps-lock or num-lock or scroll-lock, the leds do not react on it.

Hello. I tried with Mate - the same result - random squares all over the screen.

Please notice that additional installation of packages installs the latest version (i.e. drivers and xbmc) - so it does not matter if base system is Mint12 or Mint13.

today I had some time to try the new ati catalyst driver 12.6b (amd-driver-installer-8.98-x86.x86_64). here is what I did: http://pastebin.com/RX9p8JGg
after reboot the same shit happens.
fglrx info says (before lockup):

display: :0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6320 Graphics
OpenGL version string: 4.2.11733 Compatibility Profile Context
