How can I install from the site and block ati-drivers from being download and installed on emerge
It's annoying download 50mb when I don't need, same happens when I install a kernel from kernel.org

Just perform:
Code:
# echo "x11-drivers/ati-drivers" >> /etc/portage/package.mask
# echo "sys-kernel/gentoo-sources" >> /etc/portage/package.mask

Doing that way...

Calculating dependencies -

Gah, delete those package.mask entries, that's only to be used to block particular packages from being installed on your system. Copy the file you downloaded into /usr/portage/distfiles/ and emerge -avu1 ati-drivers. Although there wont be an ebuild for that package yet.

Doesn't work with 2.6.25(-r5) kernel:
Code:
fglrx: Unknown symbol init_mm

unless CONFIG_UNUSED_SYMBOLS (Kernel hacking->Enable unused/obsolete exported symbols) is set.

I have no problem at all, I use the 8.50 and the kernel 2.6.25-Gentoo-r5.

I have this error message whenever I want to run fgl_glxgears.
fgl_glxgears:
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
X Error of failed request:  GLXUnsupportedPrivateRequest
  Major opcode of failed request:  130 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  16 (X_GLXVendorPrivate)
  Serial number of failed request:  41
  Current serial number in output stream:  42

Googleing a little showed me an ancient bug with libGL.so.1, which was not found. That bug has been fixed now so it's probably not the problem:
ldd $(which fgl_glxgears):
        linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fff159fe000)
        libGL.so.1 => //usr/lib64/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/libGL.so.1 (0x00007fbb0d45e000)
        libGLU.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 (0x00007fbb0d1df000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x00007fbb0cedd000)

        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.1.2/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007fbb0bff3000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007fbb0bde6000)
        libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0x00007fbb0bce4000)
        libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0x00007fbb0bbdf000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fbb0d6d4000)

Now glxgears works normally.
glxgears:
10892 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2178.389 FPS
10533 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2106.437 FPS
10888 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2177.554 FPS
10896 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2179.162 FPS
10908 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2181.480 FPS
10862 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2172.231 FPS

I'm hunting this on as I don't have anything 3D to check right now -- except a Tomb Raider Legend that I've already run successfully on an AMD64 machine through wine. :-)

Hello there!

I plan to buy some new components for my pc and for the graphics card my favorite is the new Radeon HD4850.

My question now belongs on the driver. How works the actual driver under gentoo in comparison to the one of nvidia? Is the driver in the meanwhile usable also for 3D?

Thx in advance.

Still the same as before (though open source ATI drivers make good progresses):
  • Gamer --> go for nvidia
  • otherwise go for ATI
I've tried radeonhd, ati (radeon) and fglrx and, as far as I can tell, ATI drivers (fglrx) are still crappy for playing; Open Source drivers haven't got mature enough to provide hardware acceleration and be on par with their proprietary equivalent. Soon -- I hope -- we'll see Open Source drivers for ATI/AMD, which perform better than ATI's proprietary drivers.

Thank you. Good that I'm not a gamer. Then I will see how it works now in quite a few days.

I may well be under some kind of illusion or placebo effect, but it seems to me that 2D performance (redrawing windows and such) is significantly improved in this new version, to the point of being decent! Also, compiz seems to run better now, in fact it seems to run very well if you do not turn reflections on, for some reason they appear black and slow down the system enormously. Seems they are making some good progress. In fact I'd dare to say that nexuiz performance seems allright...

Ya, the release notes said they improved 2d window performance when compositing is enabled

I have a HP laptop with an X1200 Radeon, and I don't really see any difference in performance. The only thing I've found so far is that fglrxinfo exits with segmentation fault after displaying the information it's supposed to display.

This message tells us AMD/ATI developers do not follow strict programming rules (as far as Linux driver is concerned) as for using critical sections, spinlocks aso. It's a bug that's advertised by your kernel config -- see kernel hacking section. There are also numerous bugs like "sleep function called within a spinlock"...

So maybe the screen corruption you see is due to that bug, maybe it's not. I unfortunately can't provide you with an accurate answer on that particular question.

in my dmesg output any one have any ideas?

This message tells us AMD/ATI developers do not follow strict programming rules (as far as Linux driver is concerned) as for using critical sections, spinlocks aso. It's a bug that's advertised by your kernel config -- see kernel hacking section. There are also numerous bugs like "sleep function called within a spinlock"...

So maybe the screen corruption you see is due to that bug, maybe it's not. I unfortunately can't provide you with an accurate answer on that particular question.


thanks, I actually found a solution it was something that happened after i checked the export unused/obsolete symbols. It didn't fix the problem. Everything I'm finding points to a regression of an old bug where your hres has to be a multiple of 64. Mine is not i use a dual head setup and one monitor is 1680x1050 the other is 1440x1024 (set virtually to 1440x900) soo im still a bit stumped and am poking at several ideas including rebuilding the system to an AMD64 system since I have read a few reports that the bug isnt there in AMD64

Hi @all

does anybody know when a driver for the new HD4850 Series will come ?

I have bought one yesterday, and it looks like the 8.501 Driver not really support it, with XVideo and Composite it gives me only a blank screen and i must push reset, when i comment Xvideo and Composite out it gives me a blank screen where the X mouse pointer (This one in X form) appers, but it freezes so i can't move the mouse, and it doesn't load my kde.

When i look at the Ati Site theres no driver for the 4800 Series yet for Linux, but i have read that some HD4850 come with a driver dvd that has got the linux driver, but it seem that it is not on my driver disc.

I would be happy when somebody can help me.
Sorry for my bad english.

CoS

P.S. I have got the zen-sources-2.6.25-r2 and the fglrx.ko builts fine after i have changed this:
