Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

If so, what did you do? Are you using the script from the ATI site?

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

sweet that you got it working mds; how did you uninstall the ATI drivers though? are you using the ATI script from their site? Or the pacman ati-drivers?

edit: as for the uninstall procedure: pacman -R with ati drivers, then i disabled fglrx in rc.conf

What I really meant was, if you were using the script from the ATI site, how can you uninstall it (I don't think you can). I know how to uninstall things via pacman tongue

That info's great to have though mds, I'll look on freedesktop.org as you suggested big_smile

I've used the ATI stuff (80MB package, because I have different Linux setups). Because the ATI script installs stuff under /usr/X11, on previous occasions I've just "pacman - S xorg" to get the original xorg files back.

That's very useful to know vacant, and explains why I always lose DRI when reinstalling xorg, until I re-run the script.

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

If anyone's generous enough to write even a brief tutorial for how to get ATI working with xorg 7.0 as described by mds in the posts above, I'd be extremely grateful. I want to write one myself, mainly cos I've currently got no 3D acceleration (no ET... goddammit), but I'm busy with some other projects at the moment, and can't spare the time to go and research the various things that need to be done.

Let us know if you're the man for the job wink

I personally don't use xorg 7, and am not planning to (at least till 2morrow tongue)

But if what mds said is really all you need to do. The above options should be enough.

And I never knew xorg7 had 3d hardware acceleration using the open-source drivers. W00T. Can't wait.

TO MDS: what fps are you getting in glxgears?
My output on my 9800, with the propetary drivers.

I have 2d hardware acceleration, I can tell because when I select something on the gnome desktop and drag the mouse across the entire destop (from the upper right hand corner to the lower left) it does not lag. And it should be as it did when using mesa and xorg6.8

glxinfo output

[root@RoXoR ~]# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
......

but glxgears gives me a crappy 230 fps. So I lost 3d hardware acceleration, it was fun while it lasted tongue
The new udev is nice tongue

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

I found that adding
        Option      "backingstore" "true"
to your device section makes xcompmgr run at native speeds even using mesa. It even increases 3d performance when using the official ati drivers. Don't know why that option isn't documented very often. Found it on the xorg mailing list. Xcompmgr is alive and kicking and very fast on my computer with the xorg from testing.

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

I have got an ATI radeon 9200 card for which i think 3D dri is supported in the new xorg. How do i enable direct rendering? Right now direct rendering is no according to glxinfo.

thnx

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

If those 'Load' options you added after advice in the other thread don't do it, then things aren't looking good.

Under your ati 'Device' section, is the 'Driver' fglrix? If not then change it. You may also need to add a line to the ati Device section saying BusId "PCI:2:0:0"

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

The latest fglrx driver is working for me with xorg 7 and direct rendering. All I had to do was to copy the files extracted from the .run-file to the correct locations. The new modules directory etc.

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

All I did was to change the font,rgb and module paths in the files selection. I did have fglrx installed before I upgraded to Xorg 7.0, so there might be some files that was already there.

Here is the video-device part of my Xorg.conf
This is an ATi Mobility Radeon x700.

As for the files i copied them from the x690 directory found inside the .run file.

At first I had problems with DRI not working even the Xorg.0.log said that DRI was enabled.
ATi has their own libGL.so.1.2 file so I copied it from the extracted archive to /usr/lib/

You might also need to symlink libGL.so.1 to libGL.so.1.2

That did the trick for me.

Here's what I did:

sudo sh [ati-script]  // Ctrl-C when it's extracted the folder, before it deletes it

cd fglrx/x690/

sudo cp -r lib/modules/fglrx/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

sudo cp -r usr/X11R6/bin/* /usr/bin/

sudo cp -r usr/X11R6/lib/*.* usr/X11R6/lib/modules/ /usr/lib/

Gonna try it now...

What ati card do you have? what do you get with glxgears? do you know if there is any improvements compared to xorg 6.8?

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

@Komodo

Here is the files I copied: (fglrx is the extracted .run file)

cp -R fglrx/x690/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules
cp -R fglrx/x690/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/

I also copied the contents of
fglrx/x690/usr/X11R6/lib/* to /usr/lib/xorg/modules
Not recursive.

I don't know if that is needed, but I did copy the files just to be sure. When I do a locate on the files they are also installed in "/usr/X11R6/lib"

also copy the contents of fglrx/common to your root /

I already had the kernel module installed, so no need to copy the fglrx/x690/lib directory

That did the trick for me.

@jinn

I have a mobile x700 and I get around 4800, that is an increase form 3800 with xorg 6.8.2

I also have had some problems by /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 being overwritten to point to the original libGL.so.1.2 that I renamed to libGL.so.1.2.orig for backup reasons. This might be resolved by removing the original libGL file completely.

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

First, make sure these files exists:

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.so

if these files don't exists, you have copied some files wrong. These files should be found in the x690/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/... directories.

Now, if those files does exists, then I'm afraid I don't know what's wrong.

I don't believe it; even though there's no doubt that I followed your earlier instructions to the 'T', one of the directories didn't copy across. Thank you SO much for getting me to check this Avenger big_smile

After I followed your advice and recopied the files across, X started with the fglrxconfig-generated xorg.conf! This was a magical moment wink

Sadly though, I still don't have DRI. I've tried using both internal and external AGPGart, but neither gives Direct Rendering. Any ideas?

I'm hoping that you'll have a suggestion Avenger, since you're the first person I've come across who seems to know what they're talking about as far as ATI configuration goes  =o)

Re: Anyone got ATI direct rendering working with Xorg 7.0???

Now, one thing I want to know is does your Xorg.0.log say "(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled" ?

If it does that, then it's probably your libGL.so.* files that are not linked to the ATi version of libGL.so.1.2. These files should be in /usr/lib/. Be sure to copy the libGL.so.1.2 that comes with ATi to that directory.

My card is a PCI express card, so I don't know anything about external or internal agpgart issues, but I would think that the agpgart module is just a kernel module and has nothing to do with X.org.

Sadly it doesn't Avenger; I copied libGL.so.1.2 across anyway just to make sure that wasn't the problem, and still no DRI I'm afraid ='o(

Any other ideas? I'm sorry it's not fixed yet... feel free to give up when you run out of steam!
