Tiny Core Extensions > TCE Talk

(SOLVED) Youtube Videos Stutters then crashes

(1/3) > >>

 I have went through the ATI FGLRX setup successfully and came back into Tiny Core with a much better resolution compared to what i basically had with Xvesa. I have tried Xorg-7.5 and Xorg-7.6 with the ATI FGLRX setup and have only noticed a slight smoother boost difference in Xorg-7.6 compared to X-org7.5 which was recommended. I still get stutter then a lockup after watching a youtube video @480P, 720P or 1080P full screen only in only a few seconds with either Xorg7.5 or Xorg7.6. I have read through Xorg 7.5 documents and didn't see my card being supported but again i'm still getting the same results in Xorg 7.6 when it does have support for my card. So it must be some configuration i have to manually do which i still haven't managed to understand at this point since i've been a Windows user for over a decade and Tiny Core is pretty new to me. So far i only know how to get sound, browser, and other extensions working. I've only been using Tiny Core for just a few months and this is actually my second time trying to get this ATI card working since i got tired of using Xvesa. Below i have pasted my Xorg.conf which fglrx seems to be using at the moment and also my computer specs, thank you.

Arslan S.:
output of fglrxinfo and /var/log/Xorg.0.log please

I had no problem finding this Xorg.0.log, but i have no idea where the output of fglrxinfo is located unless you wanted me to just go into the terminal and type in fglrxinfo which i have done for you below?

display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series
OpenGL version string: 4.2.11631 Compatibility Profile Context

The initial post might potentially let a reader draw following conclusions:

1. That if a user would not be satisfied with the default Xvesa server, then Xorg would be the only alternative.
2. That when using Xorg with an ATI card then proprietary drivers would be a requirement.

Neither 1. nor 2. applies.

Arslan S.:
your xorg.conf, xorg.log and fglrxinfo looks ok

try Xorg-7.5 please
