hello

it seems ati has published a beta catalyst driver with xserver 1.6 support. it should be available on ubuntu's repository. has anybody tried it and/or made an ebuild for it?

thanx

phoronix, right?
maybe you want to get a copy of that stuff. somebody said it might disappear from the ubuntu repo soon.

Hi there,

I have downloaded fglrx-installer_8.600.orig.tar.gz, but now i am a bit confused.

I won't find a binary Installer so that i can rewrite the ebuild from the ati-drivers.

Does it work with this file ?

Else i must write a new ebuild, but i would be happy when it give a binary Package.

Has someone found anything ?

I just made an ebuild for this drivers in the gentoo-quebec overlay

The driver compile but I have not tested it (I'm at work....)

        # Gentoo's mesa looks for these files in the location specified by

        # on x86 and amd64 32bit, /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri on amd64   
        # 64bit. So we can either put the .so files in that (unusual,     
        # compared to "normal" mesa libGL) location or set

        # 101539.                                                         

        # The problem with this approach is that LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH

        # it. So if ati-drivers is merged but a non-ati libGL is selected
        # and its hardcoded path does not match our LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH   
        # (because it changed in a newer mesa or because it was compiled
        # for a different set of multilib abis than we are) stuff breaks.

works fine here too! thanks for the ebuild

i only had to copy the atieventsd* files from portage to the same directory in the gentoo-quebec overlay and run ebuild ati-drivers-8.600.ebuild digest to have them installed...

everything seems to work fine with x-server 1.6 (from the x11 overlay). even AIGLX + kwin compositing seems fine (i'm using kde4.3 live ebuilds)

video playback seems fine too..,. no tearing or sync problems... i've never had any with radeon HD3200 though on this computer... the only glitch i found was that i got a black window after minimizing and restoring the video... minimizing and restoring again fixed it however...

again thanks for the ebuild mate!

Sure ;)

I use them on kernel 2.6.29 ;)
I will add a kernel version check in the ebuild and add the patch.

I will write an update when my overlay will be updated

you should use the one of the kernel eclasses which detect the version of your kernel, adding a dep for a specific kernel is a bad idea

Does this driver also work with the older 1.5 x-server? Where can I find this overlay online?

holy ####, thanks a lot :) i just decided to try out xorg server 1.6 with xf86-video-radeonhd but my video card is too new and highly unsupported (figured as much but still), and rebuilt half of my apps for xcb change so this is very welcome =P

well amd did just drop the r700 docs and the devs are about to push opengl support for r600/r700, maybe its time you guys start using xf86-video-ati :D

I still have major issues with the free driver, so unfortunately its not an option, but I'll try it again soon.

It's like you compiled fglrx for another kernel that the one currently loaded?

I got a lot of Invalid map handle too. I think it's from the patch for 2.6.29 support. (Did not checked if I got these with the 2.6.28 kernel.)

I recompiled and got the same error. Seems .600 related.

However with recent ati-drivers (mostly > 8.552-r2) I can't get s2ram to work properlay, it freezes before suspend right after vt1 switch. Anyone can confirm this? It happens as soon as fglrx is loaded, so its definately the driver. I guess they have changed something in the code... :?
