Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Yes, disabling those features is all I meant to imply.

Just downgraded to 3.8.1, same performance. Not sure what it was that changed, unfortunately.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Violo tell me if you need any kind of benchmark.

I'm on a llano APU.

@lano1106:
nice investigation! smile
Just a couple of notes:
catalyst seems to change only one thing in amdpcsdb, it's increasing the value of AplReloadCounter whenever you will open new opengl app - it's changing this file only once per app. (edit: just checked - 13.4 behaves in same way)

You're right the only thing that change is the AplReloadCounter.

What bugs me is that to just change a single value they rewrite the whole thing 25-30 times. The open() flags O_CREAT|O_TRUNC tells the kernel to wipe out the whole file and I did omit the other operations:

open("/etc/ati/amdpcsdb", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 35
fstat(35, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7f4c4f153000
write(35, "AMDPCSDBV1\n[AMDPCSROOT/SYSTEM/MC"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "eatureEnable=V1\n[AMDPCSROOT/SYST"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "LNonStandardModesBCD1=R080004800"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "ndardModesBCD1=R0800048000000060"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "ALNonStandardModesBCD1=R13601024"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "L]\nDALNonStandardModesBCD1=R1360"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "28009600000000016001200000000701"..., 4096) = 4096
write(35, "05F3000\nDAL2_DATA__2_0\\Common\\Op"..., 76) = 76
close(35)

The way they update it is not good. They should

1. Isolate the value in a stand alone file like a pid file.
2. Update it only once.

Very good idea. I like it and will borrow it from you.

Not need for a bench, I believe your words.
I was speaking about APUs because I've found another positive review, also from APU owner, on phoronix forums.

Sure, but still there's much of I/Os (and I'm on ssd)...
So I was thinking about more complex solution.

I've got a couple of ramdisks mounted here and there, one of them is mounted as /tmp. I thought it would be a good idea to use this place for a symlinking of amdpsdb/atiapfxx.blb files.
I would like to not to loose my amdpcsdb file with the next reboot because it's quiet customized, so I created simple temp_links_catalyst script and a systemd service temp-links-catalyst.
This way I'm not loosing my files and all those I/Os are taking place in a ram.

Here are the scripts: http://catalyst.wirephire.com/files/temp_links/
1. Place temp_links_catalyst in /usr/bin
chmod a+x /usr/bin/temp_links_catalyst
2. Place temp-links-catalyst.service in a /usr/lib/systemd/system
systemctl enable temp-links-catalyst
systemctl start temp-links-catalyst

What do you think about it?

I have only suggested a simple workaround, lano1106 found this bug and is our saver smile

After testing and confirmation that it's working I'm planning to move this workaround into catalyst-utils package.
catalyst-utils has to be rebuild either way because it's containing files in /usr/sbin, and I need to move them (you probably heard that arch is moving all bins into /usr/bin).

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi!

I have a problem when I try to update my catalyst driver from 13.3-10 to 13.6-1 I get a black screen when X starts with an underscore ticking in the upper left corner. I also got this problem when I tried to update to 13.4-3.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@Mindwalker:
there's an old fglrx module (or old catalyst package) in your system. If you have updated all catalyst packages, then try to perform (if available) `catalyst_build_module ra && catalyst_build_module all`. If that won't help try to find fglrx module inside /lib/modules/* manually. You can also paste us the list of your catalyst packages here.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Thanks for the reply!

Here's the list of the packages I have:
catalyst-hook-13.3-10
catalyst-utils-13.3-4
lib32-catalyst-utils-13.3-4

When I run pacman -Syu, catalyst-hook-13.6-1, catalyst-utils-13.6-1 and lib32-catalyst-13.6-1 appears in the list. The install goes without problems, and I run both catalyst_build_module commands (also without any errors). After logging out I got a completely black screen. Couldn't even access the command line (alt+1 etc)
Had to insert the install CD and downgrade back to 13.3.

I don't have anything to add about the ATI stuff (by the way, thank you for the work on it, saved me a lot of time lol), however, just FYI: with modern SSD technology, particularly TRIM, the phenomenon where read/write performance would drop off... which actually wasn't read/write, but from how SSDs deal with deleted ("junk") data - since on a platter magnetically its not gone its just dereferenced, early SSDs didn't really handle this all that well. A mixture of updating filesystems and the onboard controllers resolved that, with an added benefit that the "lifetime" of an individual NAND cell (analogous to a sector) was greatly increased.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi guys I'm having a problem with getting 32bit direct rendering working on 64bit arch (as required for steam). LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo32 returns

name of display: :0
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri//tls/swrast_dri.so
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri//swrast_dri.so
libGL error: dlopen /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri//swrast_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri//swrast_dri.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64)

Direct rendering appears to work fine for 64bit. I'm using a HD7850 with

Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Ok, so I've updated catalyst-utils and total/test on AUR and on the repos: [catalyst], [catalyst-stable], [catalyst-hd234k]
Basically I moved bins from /usr/sbin into /usr/bin and corrected paths to atieventsd in services + I've added workaround to i/o bug (except for catalyst-hd234k because there's no such bug there).
I didn't have time to test all packages so please let me know if you will find some bugs.
I'm planning to update other archive repos soon, just now I don't have that much time.

@Mindwalker:
I don't know what's going on, but it looks similar to this : https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10165
Also: it's easier to repair the system in single-user mode then via cd, just add 1 to your kernel options before booting the kernel.

@parchedas:
why you are using pxp packages? :>
Does 64bit version of debugged glxinfo also claims about DRI2?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Just an FYI - but 13.6-1 may break some wine stuff - it did here, but downgrading to 13.4-1 fixed them again

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I can't remember why I'm using pxp exactly, but I followed the wiki so I'm guessing when I did

# aticonfig --initial

  it said something about a PowerXpress problem then I used the pxp versions and it was fine. Should I try again without pxp? No, it doesn't say anything about DRI2 for (64bit) glxinfo.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Looks like the [extra]'s gnome-shell 3.8.2 -related packages have been fixed by heftig! smile
I will now remove the temp [gnome-catalyst] repo, feel free to switch to extra packages
( ie with: pacman -S extra/cogl extra/clutter extra/gnome-shell extra/totem extra/totem-plugin )

@parchedas:
I guess that since you are running on 7850 your motherboard doesn't support powerXpress anyway, pxp free packages should work just fine, if not maybe we could fix this

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Ok, thanks, I stopped using the pxp packages and now it works fine. I also removed (lib32-)mesa-libgl which was in conflict and intel-dri which depended on them.  aticonfig --config now gives

Found fglrx primary device section
PowerXpress error: Cannot stat '/usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL': No such file or directory
Failed to initialize libglx for discrete GPU
Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-1

Does any of that matter? glxinfo and glxinfo32 don't seem to report any errors.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@Vi0L0

Thanks very much for doing all this work and making this repo. I'm using Manjaro and it solved the same problem for me.

May I humbly request that you keep this/a repo active until Manjaro update their repos? I've currently got the choice of either downgrading all the stuff you fixed (which will be a bad idea) or not upgrading anything until the Manjaro repos catch up. Or pinning, which I don't like doing.

Thanks again for your hard work, it's very much appreciated from over here in Manjaro-land. I understand completely if you're unwilling to keep this repo up for users of a different distro, of course, and my thanks still stand!

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Just wanna say Thanks -> @Vi0L0 : for "catalyst-test 13.6-2"
It's working great with Xorg-Server: 1.14.1, on 3.9.4-1-ARCH x86_64
EDIT: ... meaning, so far so good, on my "AMD A10-4600M APU" Laptop

cheers.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

llano1106, you're a genius, thanks Vi0lo for updating and integrating the patch, catalyst-test 13.6-2 from AUR gives 80+ FPS for me in minecraft (Compared to 60-70 before) with no discernable input lag (which had been a problem since 13.4 for me).

**Edit

No sad looks like I spoke too soon. After a minute or two it's jittery again and input is lagging behind, thanks for the efforts though dudes.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@parchedas:
don't bother yourself about those errors

@dgesh:
ok, but, since I think that arch users should use extra pkgs, I won't dig gnome-catalyst out from the grave - instead I will change URL:
[gnome-catalyst]
Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/gnom … back/$arch

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@Vi0L0
First, I want to thank you for your great work! It's really appreciated.

I noticed the catalyst-utils package from the catalyst-13.3-beta3 repo has files in /usr/sbin/ which should be moved to /usr/bin according to today's news post. Those files are amdnotifyui, atieventsd and atigetsysteminfo.sh.

Is it possible for you to move them, or do I have to upgrade to another version?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Yes, I'm planning to update such archive repos as: [catalyst-13.3-beta3], [catalyst-12.8], [catalyst-12.10], [catalyst-hd234k-12.4] and [catalyst-hd234k-12.6] - if someone want other repos to be updated, let me know.
I just don't have time to do this today or tomorrow...

For now I think you should be able to get working updated system by:
- removing catalyst-utils
- performing update operations and installing bash and filesystem
- installing catalyst-utils

Let me know in case of any problems.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I have a Samsung with a discrete AMD 8750M card. I couldn't install the propietary drivers because it says that my card wasn't supported by the lastest driver.
I have to wait until it gets support? Or am i doing something wrong???

Thanks!

Thanks! I got it to update after removing the package with "pacman -Rdd catalyst-utils". Reinstalled it after following the update instructions in the news post. Rebooted and the system is still working.

Thanks again for maintaining all those repos and for getting our cards to work! Seriously, I think AMD should pay you, as you are obviously doing their customer support here.

By the way, I really hope they fix the horrible performance on the drivers after 13.3b3. I don't know if it's the same with all cards but on my HD7870 I get about 20fps in TF2 with the newer versions. On 13.3b3 some maps are glitchy as fuck but at least I can play on some maps with good fps.
