Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

running without any troubles


since xorg 7 moved up to current I had no choice but installing it.
on my laptop this gave me a bit of trouble, but on my desktop, with a ati card installed I was a little afraid  roll

anyhow... installing the ati-driver-arch package didn't bring me any worries
it only complained about overriden some old files
I think this was due to the manual install I did the last time (ati installer from the ati website).

after forcing these packages (pacman -Sf ati-drivers-arch) it just worked
great work  :!:

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Please list the proper xorg entries for ati drivers.  Mine don't pass muster and cant copy them from other drive with no display.

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

not sure what you're looking for but if it's the xorg.conf, I have this section for the ati:

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Ok Solved even if i don't know how bad,in /dev/dri/ (permissions 755) i had card0 (something like 740) and swithcehd to 777 permissions.

Could you guys please do : ls -l /dev/dri/

funkmuscle:The module is "fglrx" , you wrote it wrong both times,I don't know if is a typo
This is something as the simplest xorg.conf you can get:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig Screen 0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/Type1"

        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "dri"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "type1"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"

        Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"###these are for me

        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
EndSection

I don't know if also with xorg7 the following part is needed:

Section "DRI"
         Mode    0666
EndSection

I have a bunch of xorg.conf,some from 6.8 no ati,some from 6.8 with ati ecc ecc

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Yes, if you want to use the ATI fglrx driver, then you don't want

Driver "radeon"

you do want

Driver "fglrx"

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

savantfou: I think the answer to your problem is simple.  fglrx only supports the following mobility cards:

# Mobility™ Radeon® X700
# Mobility™ Radeon® X600
# Mobility™ Radeon® 9800
# Mobility™ Radeon® 9600
# Mobility™ Radeon® 9550
# Mobility™ Radeon® 9000
# Mobility™ Radeon® 9200
# Radeon® Xpress 200M series

Thanks for the several listings of xorg.conf.

It should be of value to many users. big_smile

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

It's ok now big_smile
1) Simply deinstall all xorg and xf86packages
pacman -Rsc xorg
pacman -Rsc xf86-*
No more xorg or xf86 packages listed with pacman -Q
2) I removed (or move to keep a backup) folder /etc/X11, /usr/X11R6, /usr/lib/xorg
3) Reinstall xorg, xorg-server, xorg-clients
4) Reinstall the xf86-video-ati for me
5) Regenerate a new xorg.conf or use a backuped one.
Thanks for your help

I was wondering if these still have the 'black screen' problem running with Kernel 2.6.15 when finishing an X Session?

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Daren,

The GL-kernel-panic-on-exit bug that occurred with 2.6.15 has been fixed as of 8.22.5 version of ati-drivers.  I myself am still having problems of a slightly different nature, but I seem to be the only one, and I'm trying to figure out what's different in my setup that's causing this.

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Thanks Cerebral,

So far it seems ok now, however, compared to the xorg ati driver, everything seems vertically squashed.

Example, playing a widescreen video (this is a 15.4 1280x800 laptop display btw) the picture is vertically shorter.  I'm assuming it is setting a different DPI setting, but don't know how I can change it.

The same goes for fonts, they all look a little squished :shock:

The KDE control centre for display tells me it is the normal resolution & refresh, but not much else.

Any ideas?

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

Daren: Hm.. have you specified the size of your monitor in xorg.conf?

Look for a section like this, and add the line:

Section "Monitor"
    #your normal monitor stuff goes here
    DisplaySize  340    270 # in mm
    #            W      H

Re: testing: ATI drivers for xorg7 - packages renamed.

In honesty, I didn't know you could!!  :oops:

A bit of further investigation with xdpyinfo shows the fglrx is reporting a different mm/dpi size to the ati driver, so I will give this a go.

(Later edit)
That did the trick.. thanks a lot   big_smile
