Thread: ATI X1400 and PowerState

  1. ATI X1400 and PowerState

    Hi,

    I'm running Lenny on a Thinkpad T60 with ATI X1400 GPU. Kernel is
    2.6.18-4 from testing, fglrx driver is 8.36.5-1 from experimental, xorg
    is 7.1.0-18 from testing.
    I can set PowerPlay state of the card manually by using the
    aticonfig --set-powerstate=NUMBER
    but if I put the
    Option "PowerState" "NUMBER"

    in my xorg.conf, I get

    fglrx(0): Option "PowerState" is not used.

    Any idea how to get this working?
    I tried putting the
    aticonfig --set-powerstate=NUMBER
    in my Fluxbox startup file, but that doesn't work either!

    Regards

    Kemal

    Yeah, this is unsupported, blame ATI/AMD as usual

    That works for me on my XFCE setup:
    15:58 zhenech@shinkupaddo ~ %
    cat .config/autostart/ati-powerstate.desktop [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Version=0.9.4
    Type=Application
    Name=ati-powerstate
    Comment=
    Exec=/home/zhenech/bin/ati-powerstate
    StartupNotify=false
    Terminal=false
    Hidden=false

    15:58 zhenech@shinkupaddo ~ % cat bin/ati-powerstate
    /usr/bin/aticonfig --effective=now --set-powerstate=1

    Maybe your file gets excuted too early?
