Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I've got this error when trying to install the generated 2.6.35-ARCH module after catalyst_build_module :

/tmp/alpm_#####/.INSTALL : line 9: depmod : command not found
error : command failed to execute correctly

but depmod is installed
And now, I've got a missing fglrx module at startup...

Huh, i though that i am only person experiencing it - on my (now broken) arch64 everything was ok, but on i686 i'm experiencing same behaviour like you...
Why is that happening? i don't know right now - but depmod has been here (in catalyst build) always.
Can you tell me what's the output of

whereis depmod

command?
Also are you using hook, daemon or generator?
Temporary solution is to manually as root type:

depmod

or

depmod kernel_version

(if you've built fglrx module for some new kernel)
just after calling catalyst_build_module

Edit: ok, i think i got it, catalyst-generator 10.10-2 shall fix that issue
btw: in catalyst-test i did it right, but i totally forgot about it in original catalyst-generator... sorry mates, anyway it should be fine now

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Was installing arch on a friend's inspiron. Everything works fine with the open source driver (xf86-video-ati).
With catalyst (10.10), there is a funny issue. Everything installs from the repo (pacman -S catalyst)
The issue is that aticonfig --initial doesn't work.

The error that I am getting is (approximately) :
"/usr/bin/aticonfig: file or directory not found"

I checked, and /usr/bin/aticonfig exists. Any ideas?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@agapito: Yes.
Modprobe fglrx works. But aticonfig --initial doesn't. I haven't tried aticonfig --initial -force, but I doubt that it would work. For some reason it cannot execute /usr/bin/aticonfig, while the file actually exists.

It appears that something about fglrx is causing my system to hang when shutting down. Its all the way to "Power off" and then freezes. I ran some tests.

If I modprobe fglrx and try to shutdown without ever running an X server, it shuts down okay.

If I modprobe fglrx, run an X server, kill the X server and rmmod fglrx, the hang still occurs when I try to power down.

If I only run an X server on the vesa driver, everything works fine on shutdown.

Restarts of the computer always work fine -- it is only shutdowns that cause the hang.

I've looked through the logs and nothing seems to be different in them between a restart and shutdown. I believe the the hang may be occurring after logging has already stopped.

Running on Mobility Radeon 5830 (HP Envy 15 laptop Core i5) with Catalyst 10.7 -- Arch Linux x64, kernel 2.6.34. I don't know whether this is a weird bug with Evergreen, with Arch (I haven't tried another distro on this laptop yet), or just with my laptop. Any ideas?

Okay, so I found out it's not just fglrx. While the issue does not occur when using the vesa driver, I do get the same issue when using the xf86-video-ati 'radeon' driver. Does that spark any new ideas?

I'm the friend with the inspiron. Installed everything from scratch, but the issue persists. Tried the -force option, but predictably, that has no effect.

.. does a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf exists? even empty, that might be the problem with aticonfig

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Yes, there is a xorg.conf. I created it with a Xorg -configure earlier in the install.

This is what the file looks like: as you can see, the vesa driver is in use because of my inability to run aticonfig --initial

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Thanks, everyone who tried to help.

I ran into the catalyst issue mentioned above with the 64-bit arch kernel. I couldn't find a solution, so I installed the 32-bit arch kernel instead. Catalyst works fine with this kernel. I used aticonfig --initial without any hassles this time. Just installed kde smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I did a fresh arch install after which I installed and configured catalyst 10.10-1 ... everything went ok ... after that,  I used startx to continue my tedious installing process, all went fine ... until I tried to change my tty neutral . I'm having a screen in tty* with some kernel initializations with a really crappy resolution that it seems to stay there no matter what I do ... I can execute blind commands but it annoys me that I can't see what I'm doing.
The crappy screen remains there even after I close my X session ... so until I start my X session everything is ok.
I'm sry if there is already a solution for this somewhere, but I couldn't find it.
Can somebody help me please?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

After the update to Catalyst 10.10, the KDM won't start. I'm using catalyst-daemon, and on reboot the screen will show the mouse clock for a second and then it returns to tty login.
I found a thread on gentoo about problems between Xorg 1.9 and kdm, but it looks like there is no such problem in Arch.
What info can I provide? I've already reinstalled the packages, reran aticonfig --initial, and even tried to revert the packages, all to no avail. X just won't start.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I have this problem since Catalyst 10.8, I think.
Maybe someone have faced same thing:

so this is Radeon Mobility HD2600, I have no more "PowerPlay" settings in amdcccle,
I got "ERROR - Get clocks failed for Adapter 0 - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600" when making "aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks",
I got "ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 0 - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600" when making "aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature".

WTF?

Hi I wrote about this problem month ago. I have had that same problem since catalyst 10.7. I checked all symbols and some symbols was changed in binary files. I have also toshiba a200 ( 1iw) with radeon hd 2600.
I tested that same system (I changed disk ) to other machine with HD 3450 and I didnt have error like:

(EE) fglrx(0): PPLIB: PP_Initialize() failed.

Q:
Can we force load pplib ?
Q to PaulStogov:
Can you check 10.7 ?

best regards,

OK, thank you for the reacting, at least now I can be sure that this is not my own hardware problem.
I shall make fresh install of Arch with 10.6 catalyst and then will make step-by-step driver upgrade to see what it brings. Will post the results tomorrow, I hope.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

i have a problem i'am using catalyst drivers 10.1 and i have ati mobility 3650 .
i having problems with it because X are crashing every few minutes....
so i tried kernel option acpi=off and everything worked ok (at least 10x longer then normaly so i think that it was fixed) , but this fix is at least stupid because half system is not working like before..
then i find that atconfig have option -acpi-services=off , but here is THE problem because some time before i used some other options like " locked-userpages=0 " but it didn't work and now i can;t apply option acpi-services=off (or it's not working because x is crashing every 4-7 minutes).
i removed /etc/ati , xorg.config and reinstalled all packages but after reboot system still informs me that :

[fglrx:drm_parse_option] *ERROR* "locked-userpages" is not a valid option

so i think somwhere there is backup file and it override mine new options .. can someone help me apply this option

I got rid of this error message through a bios update.
My HP Envy 15 was a bloody mess before !
The Ati Driver was not even working good under windows 7.
( Radeon Mob. 4830 )

But anyway, xorg's start stucks now at

[    59.022] (EE) GLX error: Can not get required symbols.

So .. yeah ... meanwhile vesa rocks the house ! ^^

//EDIT: The x server related *.conf files belong into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ eh, right ?
so does X ignore the /etc/X11/xorg.conf as it isn't in that xorg.conf.d folder ?
