Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

Oops This went wrong. Is there a logfile that I can check as running sudo ddm-mx -p nvidia has resulted in both user and root accounts being deleted along with most of the system. It boots as far starting Teamviewer for which there is no file or directory then shows Welcome to MX17.1 and mx 17 login...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

I have made a new snapshot on my production machine and installed it again on the test rig. One error that was mine previously was that I forgot that grub was being booted from another distro so the changes I made in grub customiser on mx17 were not being actioned. OK I have removed nomodeset, the x...

Re: On board for a while with MX-Linux

Why not setup your system exactly how you would like to see it for other people and then do a snapshot to offer to others?

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

Re: Removed the nomodeset but do not understand what the kernel parameter is. The radeon driver uses kernel modesetting (kms) and won't work properly if the nomodeset parameter is used. Like I posted before, removing the nomodeset parameter and also removing(deleting) the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file sh...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670

I have been unable to resolve this problem which seems to be because the system the snapshot was made from has nvidia graphics and this machine has radeon. Installing from the snapshot still had nvidia in the system. I have now installed from the Sept MX17.1 and the display and Radeon driver is inst...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670

Remove the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, use Grub Customizer to remove the nomodeset kernel parameter and generate a new grub.cfg. After you do a reboot it should be using the radeon driver. Removed the nomodeset but do not understand what the kernel parameter is. This is the file now savedefault load_v...

Re: New SSD required

Thanks for all the replies. As the machine is reporting possible future problems with the main drive (500GB) and I think I will probably replace it with a SSD and the Samsung 860 EVO looks to be favourite.

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670

...Then there might be some kernel boot command to get the system to use the amdgpu driver ... I think the HD 6670/7670 is a older GPU and should use the radeon driver, not the amdgpu driver. So the question is why is it using the vesa driver? Maybe Fornhamfred could post the output of the command ...
