Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@kensai
I know this maybe a stupid question since archlinux doesn't support ati drivers anymore but i was thinking that the fglrx.diff could be add added to the archlinux kernel26 package. This is only cause this code shouldn't cause any problem since only export a symbol and nothing else.

Like i said. Its more then likely not going to happen but its just my thought. Otherwise I will have to rebuild the kernel so i can have ati driver support for my livecd.

is there going to be a repository for these drivers?
Also is there a stepwise instruction to install patch these drivers, i could not find it in wiki sad

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@ godane, I will talk with tobias and see, I really doubt he will accept, as catalyst is not supported, but I won't loose anything trying.

I'm thinking about using the 2.6.28 kernel for fglrx so I don't have to use the patch, I'm having wine issues with gl_out_of_memory errors and I  think it could be related to the log messages.

I just did this.  I also went back to 64-bit.  Everything is working great, now, like it was on thirty-two bit!  The cause of my Flash and whatnot issues must have been Catalyst with the new kernels.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I have problem with jjj137 howto. I compiled and installed patched kernel. I got nothing like '2.6.30-ARCH-g9621145-dirty', just '2.6.30-ARCH'. Then I tried to make catalyst package, error:

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Ok I created a repo, very fast, so maybe more things are too come. Add this above [testing] in /etc/pacman.conf:

[catalyst]
Server = http://dev.archlinux.org/~eduardo/repo/x86_64

For now, I let the kernel be the same package version as the one in testing, so you need to manually install it:

pacman -Sy catalyst/kernel26

and to install catalyst:

pacman -S catalyst

I have not added catalyst-utils yet, so you will compile that from AUR. More things are to come, I just did it in a blast.

If you are successful can you share your packages?  maybe then i dont have to move to x86_64

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@venky80
You will not have to change to x86_64 system now. I have fix catalyst so that i will work with 32 bit os. And without having to patch too.

[archiso-live]
Server = http://arch-live.isawsome.net/testing/

@kensai
Here is the gentoo bug report about it:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=266819

I added the flush_tlb_page-94.patch and config_x86_32.patch to your PKGBUILD of catalyst. I'm using catalyst right now and i have no problems so far.

glxgears with my catalyst 9.6 as 1150fps now. I had around 930 at best in the older kernel.

I hope this helps everyone.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Catalyst 9.6 from godane repo is not working for me (i686). I am using kernel26 from [testing] without patch and it works ok but after launching any apps like games, glxgear or whatever system is freezing and I can only restart it.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@venky80
I'm sorry about that. I thought i was working since glxgears was working just fine. The kernel crashed when trying to use virtualbox so its very unstable.

I only good news was i got to compile on x86 system. I will see what i can do to fix this problem.

EDIT: I found out how to fix it now. You have to add this to your xorg.conf to stop the crashes:

Option "UseFastTLS" "true"

You have to add it to the Section "Device" where the video driver is in xorg.conf file. I tested with warzone2100 and virtualbox-ose and there working fine now.

I hope this helps.

EDIT2: It didn't work. Kernel freezed when trying to use glxgears. Sorry. If anyone can help with this it would be great.

EDIT3: Ok then. I just found out i can play assualtcube with my ati driver. glxgears still freezes and this without the fastTLS equaling true.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Do you really have to have the newest kernel every time, anyway?  I mean, if everything is fine and dandy great with an older kernel, then why upgrade right every time a new one comes out?  The kernel is probably the only thing I don't mind updating only once every three or six months.
