Re: Radeon HD 6450 drivers

I have an ATI Radeon too, although of a different model, and I have the xserver-xorg-video-radeon package installed (at Q4OS install time). Everything is working fine. If it is not already installed on your system, try it.

@aurel

Which computer model are you using? In case it is a desktop computer, can you share the name of the monitor?

Cheers.

@aurel

For the black screen try doing the following:

When you hit the black screen try pressing "Ctrl+Alt+F1" (or another F key) to get a terminal to log in. Fill your username and password and execute the following to reset xrandr configurations:

xrandr -s 0

Then type:

sudo reboot

You should get rid of the black screen when booting.

Cheers.

Re: Radeon HD 6450 drivers

Try setting up the bad resolution to see if you get rid of the black screen.

xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1024x768
sudo reboot

If nothing happens after reboot try pressing again "Ctrl+Alt+F1" (fill username and password) and type:

startx

To see if graphical interface starts up.

Re: Radeon HD 6450 drivers

hello
just to let you know ..and maybe someone have similar problem
for setting resolution to 1280x1024 on older monitor you need :

xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1280x1024
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x1024

even i am using DVI output from my card any debian/ubuntu distro recognize it
like a VGA...my guess because is VGA monitor
