lmsensors temperature off for AMD APU (A86600K)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 13, 2013
CPU: AMD A8-6600K APU
MB: ASUS F2A85-M/CSM
The output of lm-sensors, (and to be fair, Core Temp when running in Windows as well), is significantly off. It reports idle temperatures that drop to near freezing levels, (with a larger-than-stock air cooler), and only puts out the correct temperature (or what I surmise to be correct), when the CPU is under enough load to get it up to 45-50°C.
On Windows, as I mentioned, Core Temp experiences the same issue, however a program that ASUS provides for their board, AI Suite, seems to register the correct temperatures, with idle temps in the 30's and full load temps peaking over 50°C.
Is anyone aware of a solution to make lm-sensors read correctly?
Screen Tearing w/ Live TV on AMD APU A105800K
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2013
I have searched and search for help on this issue for about a week and a half, and convinced that I seem to be unable to find a concise solution to the problem, I now implore the wisdom of this site for help.
I have mythbuntu running on a rig setup with an AMD "APU" A10-5800K, XBMC running on top of it. My goal is to get audio and video out of the HDMI port with as smooth playback of live tv as possible.
Default drivers actually worked pretty well, as far as I could tell, although because I could find no way to get audio flowing through HDMI, I had to move on.
fglrx from the repository was a disaster. I barely even still had video.
fglrx-legacy from Tomasz Makarewicz worked pretty well, as far as I could tell, but in order to remove a pesky "Unsupported Hardware" logo from the bottom-right of the screen, I had to replace a particular file (control) from a more recent version of the proprietary driver.... and.... for whatever reason, it a
Does any Linux distro work with the Llano AMD APU?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 28, 2012
I have a Samsung laptop with the 64 Bit AMD A6-3420M APU / Radeon graphics quad core. I have tried several popular distributions, and they ALL result in a blank screen very soon in the installation sequence. Operations continue, but there is no video. In fact, none of the live CDs will even boot fully, with the exception of Ubuntu Precise. I have tried to install Precise to the hard drive, but it eventually dies during file copying, sometimes going back to the live desktop with no error message. I know these APUs have been a challenge, but I've seen benchmarks where Linux has been used with them. The Samsung model number is 305E5A-A03. Thanks in advance.
AMD APU and black screen of death on install and boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2012
I need help. Decided to install 12.04 (x64) on an AMD A8 3870K APU machine....but after I select install or boot from live CD it just goes to a black screen and disconnects from the monitor.
As a workaround I used the alternative x64 cd and installed it via text installer...however I face the same problem after install, the system won't load up, it disconnects from the monitor (monitor goes into idle).
How can I install the proper drivers for the GPU? Getting tired of it...started thinking of going only with win 7 on the machine..
Nvm, gave up on it. Will just use win 7.
AMD APU + Catalyst + Xorg = failed, and I hate to raise this question again!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 18, 2013
I hate to raise this question again!
I cannot force to work Xorg on my hardware.
AMD APU A4-3400 (include Radeon 6410D graphics)
Installing Catalyst 11.4 ends with kernel module build error. Skipped it.
1. Installing 11.6 beta - builds. Slackware specific package(fglrx-*.t?z) installed
2. aticonfig --initail --resolution=0,1024x768 - DONE. /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ati.conf generated
3. in /etc/modprobe.d/ blacklisted radeon and radeonhd
5. login, startx - FAILED. Black screen. Text cursor at top left corner blinks. Alt+F# and Alt+Ctrl+F#, Alt+Ctrl+Backspace, Alt+Ctrl+Delete - no reaction.
6. Cold reset(and damned fsck consumes another 15minutes of time and portion of nerves).
7. Boot kernel with additional parameter nomodeset
8. login, startx - see step 5.
Any suggestions, working solution?
PS: Shall provide xorg.0.log latter if required.
Xorg.0.log - as it appeared, there is no any Xorg.0.log. Really I see empty Xorg.0.
AMD APU compatibility
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 14, 2013
I have just purchased a new laptop and I want to be as sure as I can be that Ubuntu Studio will work properly with it. New hardware (not yet delivered as of this posting):
Toshiba Satellite L870D-BT3N22
AMD Quad Core A10 4600 APU 2.3GHz (3.2GHz Turbo boost 3.0) processor
4 GB DDR3 1600
640 GB HDD
Most importantly, what I am trying to find out is whether the APU architecture will work properly with the Ubuntu Studio 12.10 in light of the lack of a stand-alone CPU and GPU. Considering the success I have had working with Ubuntu on several previous computers I assume that the OS is intuitive enough to understand the chip architecture ... but before I cause myself a headache trying to fit a square peg into a round hole I should ask:
1. Are there any known issues running Ubuntu Studio 12.10 on an AMD APU?
2. If there are known issues, is there a simple work-around (i am still a novice with Linux) or would I be better off starting with a different distro?
3. Are the
Live 14.04 DVD/USB only works with nomodeset on AMD APU system
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2014
Live 14.04 DVD/USB only works with nomodeset on AMD APU system, otherwise it will go into blank screen.
I've also had trouble with installation because of the same problem, but the workaround is the nomodeset.
The problem with nomodeset is the resolutions available are all distorted on my monitor, and have no option for my monitor's native resolution.
Am I stuck with the nomodeset workaround, or is there a fix from developers?
AMD APU and slackware
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 22, 2011
Before I get into the title, let me present my dilemma.
I'm currently looking for a netbook. Here're the two netbooks that I think are quite good.
I'm actually going to go with the Acer since it has a slightly bigger screen, much better resolution and better performance compared to the Toshiba, but what worries me that I might have deadlock to get the Acer's AMD APU to work with linux since I heard that the APUs are not that compatible with linux in general. And since I use slackware, I think this section is the correct place to post my problem here.
Any advice will be appreciated. I would really like to hear from the owners of these two netbooks about how they work with linux.
getting full resolution on HDMI tv from AMD APU
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 17, 2013
Hello, I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on my home media center and cannot setup my display to use all of the available screen on my HDMI tv.
The JVC tv that I am using as a display has an uncommon resolution of 1366x768. This resolution is not an option I can choose in 'Displays' (I currently have 1920x1080 selected, which looks OK but leaves a border of black pixels around the screen. This is the screen that I use to watch movies and I would like the display to be as large and clear as possible.
Should I be using a special driver for my APU with Radeon HD 6410D? In 'additional drivers' it says the FGLRX graphics driver is activated but not currently in use.
Thanks for your help!
QuadMonitors Using AMD APU?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 22, 2013
Looking for an effective (easy and cheap) way to get 4 monitors running in Ubuntu 12.04. The hardware has not yet been purchased and that's what I'm here for. AMD's website says their new APU series of processors can drive up to 4 monitors natively, and the A85FX chipset seems to support it. Can anyone confirm this? If you've done it, was it difficult or hassle free?
