Thanks Vi0L0.  Given removing everything from xorg.conf "Module" section a go...same behaviour sad
Have submitted a bug report as suggested... http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=167

EDIT: Trying 11.6 now!

Yep, still happening with 11.6! sad

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Looks like OpenGL acceleration for flash works fine even when Tear-Free Desktop is enabled.
To enable it as root:

mkdir /etc/adobe && touch /etc/adobe/mms.cfg && echo "OverrideGPUValidation=true" > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

Have you been having problems with fullscreen flash using kwin as well?  The last flashplugin release helped a lot, but I still get flickering on Justin.tv with fullscreen (not youtube), and sometimes have to switch to a tty console using ctrl+alt+f{2-6}, then back to F{7,8}.

Updating now via ssh.....but I'm not at home so I can't test yet.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@Vi0L0

- nomodeset was already at the kernel line.
- fglrx was put correctly by the pxp_switch_catalyst at MODULES (so the problem shouldn't be there)
- since 11.6 was out, I decided to try it out. No changes. Same segmentation fault at xorg.
- I have removed from mkinitcpio.conf the i915 and intel_agp modules I had there, and done a mkinitcpio -p kernel26
- "modprobe.blacklist=i915" added to the kernel line. no changes... both drivers are loaded.

the funny thing is that Xorg says:

[    23.231] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
[    23.231] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.so

[    23.234] (II) Unloading intel

so the intel driver shouldn't be unloaded? Oo

After all this I decided to try to enter with the intel graphic card, so I've done a "pxp_switch_catalyst intel" (which had no errors) and I rebooted. This time xorg didn't loaded fglrx, but Xorg says that there isn't no screen available to the card (perhaps because pxp_switch_catalyst "deletes" xorg.conf when switching to the intel card?)

However to have the same glaring bug which basically ruins my computing experience in the next release is intolerable. It just goes to show how much time and effort they really put into these releases.

WTF.

FUCK AMD.

I tested with Justin.tv and youtube, and I'm still experiencing some flickering from the Justin.tv player's overlay after going fullscreen (KDE with kwin, opengl).  Youtube seems to work well. 

I'm going to add this line to my mms.cfg that you mentioned:
OverrideGPUValidation=true

So should this line be uncommented as well?
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

The file was already present for me, so I didn't have to create it by touching it.

EDIT:

Excellent, adding this line:
OverrideGPUValidation=true
fixed the flickering problem with Justin.tv's overlay.  Thanks for that, I didn't even notice that the adobe directory existed.....how embarrassing.

Strange that xserver is even trying to load intel, it shouldn't be loaded at all.
It is unloaded (line 130) and loaded again (line 159).
Maybe you've got some conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d dir, like 20-intel.conf?
Or maybe intel needs to be blacklisted in xorg.conf (i dunno if it's even possible)?

Script do not deletes any xorg.conf, it's renaming it into:
- xorg.conf.cat if it will find fglrx (it will be linked later to xorg.conf);
- xorg.conf.oth if it will find intel or radeon (will be linked later);
- xorg.conf.wth if it will not find fglrx, intel or radeon (won't be linked or used, it's backup made because of unperfection of the script and my poor knowledge about intel).
So your xorg.conf for intel do not have "intel" word inside? If so and you've got ie. "i915" let me know, i will update script.

BTW: still it should load intel succesfully, even if xorg.conf is not present - at least it's working for radeon.

Ah i didn't think about it, yes it could be present.
I'm using flashplugin-prerelease from AUR and there even /etc/adobe dir is not present.

Well for the first time in a while I finally got to enter X with success. But with the intel driver...
To put it to work I did:

- removed the i915 driver from the blacklist
- removed the "nomodeset" from the kernel line
- done a "pxp_switch_catalyst intel"

and it started without any problems.

with a "pxp_switch_catalyst amd" after and a Xserver restart gave the same error from yesterday
I do not have any file regarding intel or i915 in xorg.conf.d or anywhere else.

and that I know of, Its not possible to blacklist a driver in Xserver. But even if it was, it wouldn't be a very good solution, since I wouldn't be able to switch back to the intel driver when I'd like to.
why Is xserver pulling the intel driver again? A mistery indeed...

Actually we could throw it into pxp_switch script so it would be easy, but since "its not possible to blacklist a driver in Xserver" it's a no go.

Well maybe except the one that you forgot to remove intel or i915 from MODULES array, but guess you didn't ;-)

I've checked pxp impementations in other distros, but found nothing interesting.
Later i will look at intel package, maybe there's something in it.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I hope this is the correct thread, but I cannot install the latest Catalyst 11.6 drivers.

I have an ATI HD5770 card previously working with catalyst 11.5 and 2.6.38.2 kernel.

from the AUR.

Problem is lingl is in conflict and I cant remove it

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@hal8000:
it's all in the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI_Catalyst
pacman -Rdd libgl
+ don't forget to install catalyst package or one of it's substitutes: catalyst-daemon, catalyst-generator or catalyst-hook
+ add nomodeset into kernel options

afaik [catalyst] repo is working fine if you want to download less

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@Vi0L0

I've discovered a thing or two.

first, apparently nomodeset doens't affect intel graphic cards. Said here: Intel - Arch Wiki

"i915.modeset=0" is the intel equivalent to "nomodeset" for other video cards.

But its also there that:

KMS is required in order to run X (Gnome, KDE, etc).

And indeed gdm does not open with Intel with the KMS off,


Also, when i915.modeset=0 was put in the kernel in order that KMS doesn't start, the intel drv was not loaded like before when starting gdm. But the segfault is still there.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

You can switch to tty2 ,log in , plug in the cable , and go back into X (tty7), and cable get's recognized. Really stupid bug roll

This is your problem: There are some files in your filesystem that the catalyst-utils package wants to overwrite. That is disabled by default.

But /etc/ati certainly belongs to fglrx driver. Maybe you have installed it before without using the package manager?

You can safely remove the whole /etc/ati directory when you are installing catalyst-utils afterwards since it only holds configuration relevant to fglrx.
So

sudo rm -r /etc/ati
sudo pacman -S catalyst-utils

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I'm trying to get catalyst to work on my Vostro 3350 with a Radeon 6470M + Intel (i5 Sandy Bridge) hybrid configuration. First off, aticonfig tells me (even with 11.6) that the card is unsupported. fglrx still seems to detect the card... somehow. The Xorg log reads

"AMD Video driver is running on a device generally supported by this driver".

I've learned that this machine doesn't seem to have a muxer but that the Radeon is attached to the Intel. Is that correct? Maybe this explains why fglrx also tries to load the Intel driver? In the Xorg logs, the driver says quite unambiguously that it detected the Radeon as discrete and the Intel as integrated graphics and that it initiates the loading of the intel driver:

...
[    42.243] (--) Chipset Supported AMD Graphics Processor (0x6760) found
[    42.260] (II) fglrx: intel VGA device detected, load intel driver.
[    42.260] (II) LoadModule: "intel"
[    42.261] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so
...

My guess is that it needs the intel driver to output any video with the Radeon at all, namely through the intel (which does not work, see below, but that's my guess).

However, I'm experiencing the same segmentation fault as Aarin right after the "Switch to AMD" message:

[    42.326] (II) fglrx(0): PowerXpress: Discrete GPU is selected.

I'm using "nomodeset". If I don't do this, I'm getting a "Screen 1 deleted because of no matching config section" kind of error and a different segmentation fault.

Yeah , i should really report that. Is anyone from AMD/ATI reading unofficial bugzilla?

Yes, in fact they are sometimes answering (or requesting more info) in comments.

I guess you could be right.
I'm still concerned how is it possible to switch between intel/catalyst without rebooting (i heard powerXpress switch should work this way) because of 2 reasons:
- catalyst cannot work with KMS;
- intel cannot work without KMS.
I don't see any mistake in my pXp implementation (especialy when it's basing on SUSE, and it's doing same things like original ATI sripts do), everything should work like ATI want it to work, for me it's looking like upstream bug so i will try to talk with ATI (i've started at #ati @ freenode).
