Indeed, although it isn't the friendliest interface  on the world.
I prefer the automated tool or the web interface.

OK!
I'll send it via mail.

Thanks!

Reportbug is known to be broken and reportbug-ng seems to addressing the reports to the Debian bug tracker!

Is any web interface available, for bug submission? (not only for viewing).

Oh I see! I didn't know.
Though is seems to be the other way around.
I think kdesudo (and gksudo) is going to be obsoleted.
https://packages.debian.org/search?sear … ords=kdesu

Indeed at my system kdesudo fails to properly execute anything.
On the other hand, kdesu can flawlessly launch programs (Dolphin, Kate etc).
Seems to me that's a Software-properties-kde bug (not Kdesu's).

Do you think, that's a bug?
Anyone succeeded rinning it?

#5 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Desktop resolution problem (AMD graphic card). » 2018-09-04 12:26:53

Hi! :-)

I searched around a bit and I'm back.

If someone faced a resolution problem the simpler way to deal with it is xrandr.
This page is the only thing you'll need: https://gist.github.com/debloper/2793261.

After setting it in order to avoid manually running it every time, you have to configure it to autostart.
I'm using KDE and it's easy enough to set it through KDE settings.

The problem is that way you'll still have the above mentioned bug with VTs.
Seems like it's a kernel bug with the name "kernel spamming".

Seems to be an upstream bug (from Debian) and all Debian forks have it (Ubuntu, Mint, Clonezilla etc).
Non-Debian distros don't suffer this specific bug.
I don't think it's relevant to create a bug report at Devuan's tracker (since Debian developers have to deal with it).

If you have a different opinion please tell me.

Personally I'm not in great need of VTs, so I'll stick with Devuan.
I'm not marking this thread as solved, because if someone needs VTs (or any console without X)...well...bad luck! :-)

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Desktop resolution problem (AMD graphic card). » 2018-06-13 16:57:21

THANKS golinux! :-)
Indeed this did the trick!
(at least partially).

If someone reads this pos and needs details, this page is particuilarly helpful:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … vailable-i.

The only problem is that it neither apply the settings (you have to go to KDE control panel and set the new resolution), nor remember them after logging off.

I made a scipt for autorunning the mentioned commands after logging in, but the inconvinience is that you have after every sigle login, to go to control panel and set the desired resolution (since xrandr doesn't do it from console).

Is there any config file somewhere, so I won't need to do the manual work after every single login?

#7 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Desktop resolution problem (AMD graphic card). » 2018-06-13 15:40:39

Last time I boot, startup output clearly stated (unlike the previous boots) that kernel needed the firmware-amd-graphics package (as you suggested), so I installed it (and xserver-xorg-video-radeon got autoinstalled too).
Seems like my card (R3 series) is at the supported list.

Now, after the restart, I'm getting the message that my monitor has no or invalid EDID (and resolution is still stuck at 1024X768).

Seems (altough I'm not sure) like I have to create an Xorg.conf, but I have about a decade to get my hands to it.

Any ideas - directions??? :-)
There are many sugestions online, but does someone tried them on Devuan?

THANKS guys for your help!!! :-)

You didn't search the web for the driver, didn't you?

Click!
(it's not the driver, but enough to get you started)

Not only searched but contacted with the AMD support. Other guys posted to their fora (so I skip this step).
That was happened last summer.

To make a long story sort, the proprietary driver (as I stated above), can't anymore be installed, because it demands an outdated X-Window version.
It is highly unlike that AMD will update this driver. Seems to be dead in the water.
Company's efforts are now for the new driver, which supports only high-end cards.

Before a year or so, a guy made an Arch fork, and bundled the last working X-Window version (replacing the normal one), with fglrx.

Pretty good solution, as a temporary one, but you know what?......nowadays Arch means.....SystemD!
NO WAY!!! :-)

Personally, |I prefer to dump Linux altogether, rather than accepting to live with the SystemD infection! ;-)

You may need to install (non-free) firmware for the videocard:

Hi! :-)

I have an older onboard AMD graphic card, at my Devuan system (ASCII x64 KDE).

>lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Kabini [Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series [1002:9830]
>

I have (auto)installed the packages:
libdrm-amdgpu1
xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu
xserver-xorg-video-ati

My resolution is at 1024X768, while the native one of my monitor, is 1360X768.
(I have an older Samsung TFT).

Back at my Debian days, I had the proprietary AMD driver (fglrx), but I think this is not available any more.
I'm totally unfamiliar with the open source one.

Ehm...What now?
Does someone knows how a can configure the driver, in order to get an acceptable resolution?
TIA! :-)

Hello,

a few questions about this:

1. At which point exactly did the installation fail?

I tried some times. It has bugs at various points. From detecting the router (auto or manual configuration failed) the earlier, to installing GRUB (after 97%).

msi wrote:

2. Was there an error message?

Various. Eg. "Η εγκατάσταση απέτυχε" (=installation failed).
Not very informational though.

msi wrote:

3. Can you reproduce the problem?

Well...yes and no.  Installer seems to be buggy.
It throughs bugs at different points.

golinux wrote:

Some DMs are more friendly that others to setting locales.  KDE can be a bit fussy with this.  Please read the Release notes and also search this forum for KDE.

Oh I see!
Then I suppose I have the options either choosing another desktop, or customizing localization from the working system (after booting up).

UPDATE:

I managed to install it.
It has some other problems, but I'll open a new post.
THANKS AGAIN!!! ;-)

Hi! :-)

I downloaded the ASCII dvd x64 and I tried to install it (normal installer, NOT the graphical one, bios mode, NOT uefi), choosing my native language (Greek), but installation failed and aborted.
DVD scanned for errors and it passed (OK).

Installing again, using English (American), completed flawlessly.

I choose the packages: devuan, kde, console and standard.

If you think it's a bug and should be reported, please tell me.
G.
