ATI Mobility Radeon Xpress 200M

This is a ATI North Bridge with integrated video adapter


  • Video Chipset: ATI ?
  • Video PCI ID: 1002:5a62
  • Video Memory: uses main memory (32MB up to 511MB main memory; 64MB over 511MB)

Linux driver - OpenSource

The VESA driver in Xorg 6.8.2 works. Tested with Fedora Core 4, the hardware discovery did not work, so it was configured for 800x600 only. I edited xorg.conf manually to insert the 1024x768 mode and increase HorizSync to allow the mode to work.

Linux driver - Proprietary


The following combination of software is almost working for me: gentoo-sources-2.6.14-r2, ati-drivers-8.19.10, xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6. Xorg hangs up sometimes unless I disable glx and dri modules in xorg.conf .

New kernel 2.6.15 and ati drivers 8.20.8 work flawlessly. DRI is enabled and graphics is fast (for this videocard). fglrxconfig puts "GammaCorrection" options in xorg.conf and it sometimes messes up colors so it is better to comment them out. If colors are messed up for some reason anyway run fireglcontrol and click on TvOut tab, it should cure the problem (ATI has a peculiar sence of humor).
