PostPosted: Thu Nov 20, 2008 8:08 pm    Post subject: xorg-server 1.5.3 no screens found Reply with quote

Today I updated my xorg-server to 1.5.3 and ati-drivers-8.552-r2 but now my X won't start anymore. And it gives an error 'no screens found'. Nothing changed in my xorg.conf, anybody know what could be the problem? I never was any good with the xorg.conf creating, so I was happy I had everything working, already tried searching but nothing pops up with the same problem yet. Help would really be appriaciated ^_^
My xorg.conf is listed below:

There isn't really much info in my Xorg.log if you would ask me, that is the strange thing also:

Code:

(II) Reloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//synaptics_drv.so
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01@00:00:0
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fglrx
(II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Version Identifier:8.55.2
(II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Release Identifier: UNSUPPORTED-8.552
(II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Build Date: Oct 28 2008 21:22:33
(WW) This ATI Proprietary Linux Driver does not guarantee support of video driver ABI higher than 2.0
(WW) Video driver ABI version of the X server is 4.1
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found


doing an "qlist -I -C x11-drivers/" shows that the ati-drivers are installed:
Code:

This seems to me like you should go back with the xorg-server for this driver to work...

For one thing you don't need all those drivers installed. Just put a VIDEO_CARDS="<video card output from lspci>"

Then you could try xorg.conf with one or two less options in the Section "Device" or maybe even none at all at first.

Try with a X generated xorg.conf
as root:
cd
X -configure
X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

What happens ?

you mean go back to the xorg 1.4.2 I was running before? Does xorg-server 1.4.2 has an video driver ABI lower then 2.0 then? I mean it was running before with xorg-server 1.4.2

Code:

(EE) VESA(0): unknown type(0xffffffff)=0xff
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

It tries to use the vesa driver and it can find the screens but it generates the above error now

It is the new ati-drivers - broke my system in the same way. I just added:
Code:
=x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.552-r2

to /etc/portage/package.mask - this way it will not use it, but if a newer (fixed) version comes out, I will see it when I do my morning
Code:
emerge --sync
emerge -upvDN world

Looking at this bugreport it might indeed be that it relates to the ati-drivers, although there is talk that the 8.552-r2 would fix the problem and also about a new driver (prerelease 8.543) that would fix it also. Looking at the version number 8.543 looks as an older driver to me though, or might this be a type and that it should be 8.553?
Blocking the driver in my package.mask doesn't help me to fix it off course since it is already installed. Anybody a different solution, or more words on the date when a new driver would be released to fix this problem with ati-drivers and xorg-server 1.5.x?

update from the changelog in the ati-drivers ebuild:
Code:

+ati-drivers-8.552-r2.ebuild:
New revision, supporting xorg 1.5


it should work with xorg 1.5

Moved from Desktop Environments to Unsupported Software (1.5.3 not in the portage tree).

didn't had a look at that before yet..in that post it is suggested to run "aticonfig --initial -f" that doesn't work for me either:
Code:

Uninitialised file found, configuring.
Segmentation fault


In this bugreport it is stated that it should be working also if I'm not misreading:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=236871#c29

Tried going back also, but then I get emerge errors and it won't give me my xorg-server 1.4 back since it won't emerge. So I really should get this to work since I'm stuck with this version now I guess :-(

You're not really stuck, although you might need to unmerge some stuff before it works. I think I had to 'emerge -C xorg-server' when I needed to go back for a while.

When trying to go back I unmerged the synaptics drivers, xorg-server and the ati-drivers before trying to emerge xorg-server again with the 1.4.2 version. I think I covered everything there with unmerging or is there more to unmerge before I would be able to emerge xorg-server with the older version?

You might need to --depclean - of course with -va to check what is about to be unmerged.

I think the problem might be related to my ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10], i was thinking lets check if the module by itself is actually loaded with an lsmod when I found out that it was't loaded. Tried doing an "modprobe fglrx" and then I got this:

Code:

FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.27-gentoo-r2/video/fglrx.ko): Cannot allocate memory


when searching for this error it seems that there are more people with this problem and this videocard:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/284408 anybody know of more problems with this (laptop) videocard and these drivers. Until there is no update for this driver should it be wise to swith to the opensource drivers, and are there changes to my xorg.conf which I need to make (so not only changing the drivername). Would really love to get this fixed ^_^[/url][/code]

the new ati driver with a hd4870 on ~amd64 gives problems as well. Crashing xorg-server (something about unspecified busid errors), hard locks on the system, weird errors (something about downgrading crossfire configuration although I have only 1 card installed an never messed with cf) etc. Back to xorg-server 1.4.2 with the previous driver I guess.
New driver works perfect on my 32-bit x2300 though.

there is somehow no way to go back to the old xorg-server (1.4.2) with the old ati-drivers so im trying to get everthing working with the open source ati drivers and I put "radeon" in my make.conf in the VIDEO_CARDS section. I reinstalled xorg-server 1.5.3 with the radeon drivers changed my xorg.conf to this one (as generated by the live cd and working there)

but after that xorg still doesn't want to start (from my Xorg.0.log):
Code:
Backtrace:
0: X(xorg_backtrace+0x3b) [0x8130a3b]
1: X(xf86SigHandler+0x51) [0x80c2c41]
2: [0xffffe400]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting


any help would still be widely appreciated since I would still like to get my X working again :-)

I don't know, what about xorg-server-1.5.3, but I'm running 1.5.2 with ati-drivers-8.552-r2 without any problems (amd64, Radeon 4850).

my xorg.conf

If you want to switch from closed-source ati-drivers to open-source drivers from xorg, you'll need to re-configure, re-compile and re-boot your kernel so you have the corresponding open-source kernel-module to go with the open-source xorg-module - and it definitely looks like it's ATI's kernel-module that's the problem...

***BUT***

...The fglrx kernel-module cannot co-exist with it's open-source equivalent because of the way the kernel hotplugs modules as and when it needs them - hence the need to reboot. The easiest way to do this is to put something meaningful in the 'general-setup-->local-version' option of menuconfig - put a hyphen at the front, coz it gets tagged onto the end of the kernel-name under /lib/modules, so if your kernel is 2.6.26-gentoo-r3 and you put "-radeon" (without the quotes) in local-version, when you issue 'make modules_install' the kernel-modules will be installed in /lib/modules/2.6.26-gentoo-r3-radeon/ and will only be used by the kernel built with them, not by the one the fglrx-driver was built for. You can then have both kernels in your /boot directory with separate entries in grub.conf and can boot to either one without conflict...

...Or just uninstall the closed-source drivers and rebuild the kernel in place, so you only have the open-source option to boot to.

After that, in my experience the easiest way to get X working is the way notHerbert described in an earlier post. :wink:

If i've rambled too much, feel free to ask for clarification, or maybe someone else can explain better than me... :?
