I was expecting this would install fglrx drivers for My Readon 7000 (to get TV Out working)

But I can't see fglrx in /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/kernel/drivers/char/drm/

You need to do pacman -S ati-drivers afterwards.

Re: kernel26archck-2.6.14.archck4-1 & ATI Drivers

Also, fglrx isn't a driver that's built into the kernel, so it's not in the /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/ tree.  It just gets thrown into  /lib/modules/`uname -r`/video/

Hi ,
Yes I've noticed that fglrx.ko is in /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/
I copied fglrx.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/kernel/drivers/char/drm/ as well.

When I boot with 2.6.14-archck kernel it saysa fglrx is not found.

Please I need more help

Ben

Hi,
Just tried depmod -ae then rebooted,
FATAL fglrx.ko not found in lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/kernel/drivers/char/drm/

Then I deleted fglrx.ko from lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/kernel/drivers/char/drm/ (I copied fglrx to this dir)

Now fglrx.ko is only in /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/

Then depmod -ae

while rebooting FATAL fglrx.ko not found in lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video

Could this module made with a diffrent Kernel version?

uname -r

say?

Re: kernel26archck-2.6.14.archck4-1 & ATI Drivers

That's odd.  I've got the same package versions as you installed.  I've got an ATI Radeon 9600+. 

As well:

 $ ls /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/         
fglrx.ko
 $ find /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/ -name fglrx.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/fglrx.ko

So, I have the module and it's only in the one place.

Everything works fine for me.  Modprobe goes off without a hitch.  Wish I could help you further.

Thanks Cerebral ,

I have the module:
[root@localhost ~]# ls /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/
fglrx.ko

I removed the module from the other dir.

My card is Radeon 7000 PCI 32Mb ( ATI Technologies Inc Radeon VE QY)  which is RT100 chip. (As far as I know)

Pacman ati-drivers are meant for  r350, r300, r250 and r200 chipsets.(pacman -Qi ati-drivers)

Because of this I am going to do this trick :
http://megahurts.dk/rune/tv_output.html

Desperate times need desperate measures.

I'll post the outcome.

Regards
Ben

If anyone is interested Here is the summary:

If you have old ATI card (Radeon 7xxx) pacman ati-drivers may not work.

Download atitvout prog from google  do make make install

change xorg.conf Device Section Driver to vesa. (Previously you would have had readon)
Section "Device"           #added by hand for TV Card
    Identifier    "Card0"
    Driver        "vesa"
    VendorName    "ATI Technologies, Inc."
    BoardName    "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 7000 (RV100 VE QY)"
    Screen        0

Then Reboot the Pc while TV is connected.
Use below commands:
/usr/local/sbin/atitvout detect
/usr/local/sbin/atitvout vbe
/usr/local/sbin/atitvout -f
/usr/local/sbin/atitvout pal auto

This worked for me.  I am using xorg 11R6.8.2-6

Re: kernel26archck-2.6.14.archck4-1 & ATI Drivers

You might also want to try:
inmod /lib/modules/2.6.14-archck/video/fglrx.ko
to see if it loads at all.

I had to put that in rc.local for some reason on an earlier version of the ati-drivers (custom PKGBUILD).

Re: kernel26archck-2.6.14.archck4-1 & ATI Drivers

The ATI drivers do not support Radeon 7000. The full list of supported cards can be seen when running fglrxconfig:

==============================================================================
 ATI - FireGL - WORKSTATION GRAPHICS ACCELERATOR
==============================================================================

This program will create the ATI "xorg.conf" file
- based on your selections - for the following video cards...

         - ATI FireGL V3100 / V3200 / V5000 / V5100 / V7100
         - ATI FireGL X1 / X2 / X3 / Z1 / T2
         - ATI FireGL 8700 / 8800
         - ATI Mobility FireGL T2 / 9100 / V5000
         - ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 / 9200 / 9600 /9800
         - ATI Mobility Radeon X700
         - ATI Radeon 8500 / 9000 / 9100 / 9200
         - ATI Radeon 9500 / 9550 / 9600 / 9700 / 9800
         - ATI Radeon X300 / X600 / X700 / X800 / X850
         - ATI IGP Radeon 9100 / 9200/n  - ATI IGP Mobility Radeon 9000 / 9100/n

The "xorg.conf" file usually resides in /etc/X11.

Being able to read someone else's code is a *good thing*. Not a fundamental right.
