Just make sure to edit your xorg.conf.

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option         "RenderAccel" "True"

Okay thanks.
I bought the nVidia 9500 GT, a cheap one i know but.. at least i can play my Quake 3!
Thanks everyone for your couragous sacrifices trying to fix the ATI failure, hope i won't have to see a nVidia-thread like this big_smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

catalyst-leaked still works very well, without errors

aahhh... maybe this is offtopic but i found this forum very helpfull, so maybe someone can answer this question:
is there any way to get firefox "smooth" scroll working when using kde4 desktop effects?

and with "smooth" scrolling i mean real smooth, as smooth as it is when kde4 desktop effects are disabled. (this isn't about some firefox option called "enable smooth scrolling" or "use auto scrolling", but is about that i can see some difference beetwin scrolling when desktop effects are on and off, and that difference isn't healthy for my eyes, and trust me - isn't good for your eyes either, if you can see that difference too)

With xorg-server patches and this wonderfull (i mean working) new driver catalyst-leaked i thought to enable desktop effects, not because of good lookin but cuz of some performance advantages (less cpu usage with is obvious, btw i've even heard that opengl instructions takes less bandwich for remote desktop to print X's)

Also my computer isn't the slowest one (quad q6600, 4gb ddr2, hd4850) so it can't excuse poor smooth performance in ff.

Ofcourse i can still surf the web with ff and enabled desktop effects but this is not healthy for few hours of workin that way.

My xorg.conf got only this line added in Section "Device":
    Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    Driver      "fglrx"
    Option      "UseFastTLS" "1"     <--- this line wink
    BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"

My system config is also almost untouched and simple.

I have tried to change some desktop effects options with advanced options and disabling all effects, ... and nothing.



Anybody see that problem too? Anybody know the solution?
Thanks smile


Ooohhh... and sorry for my english smile

PS. Disabling ccc options like fsaa, anisotrop filtering can help a little bit, but still it's not what it should be.

Only Solution? --> PPS. I found that this problem isn't so annoing if ff works in fullscreen, strange haha smile   [it looks like desktop effects don't work in that ff mode]

PPPS. The problem of scrolling doesn't touch only firefox, these problem exists everywhere!

Vi0L0 did you also get a file conflict with libdri.so?
I'm wondering what the best solution to this problem would be. Perhaps, a modified xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix package with removed libdri.so?

In my experience, Nvidia and Intel both work perfectly fine.  For Nvidia use the proprietary drivers and for Intel just use xf86-video-intel.  Actually Nvidia + vdpau is working amazingly for me on my HTPC.

The only cards I have a problem with these days are the ATI/AMD.  Catalyst is a pain to get working and radeonhd doesn't do 3d yet...  It looks like there is some progress in this thread getting Catalyst working, but I've hosed X several times trying to make Catalyst work and am hesitant to waste more time on it.

godane's patched kernel +xorg-server+maximize fix + catalyst 9.7 gives me 3D on i686  but flash completely fucks my computer...is there something i can add to my xorg.conf to make it better....64 bit people are lucky coz they have leaked driver wink

Yes, i get this file conflict too, when trying to build those catalyst-leaked package.
The only think i'm shure that the file /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libdri.so was just a symlink to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libdri.xorg. A dead symlink cuz libdri.xorg just don't exist in my case at all, i only don't know why it didn't exist. I think that maybe pacman -R catalyst-utuls catalyst or  pacman -R xorg-server (im using patched xorg-server) just don't deleted it.
I personally belive that this file was a garbage and we shouldn't take care on it smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I think i've discovered a bug with the catalyst-utils package while trying to fix the libdri.so issue for catalyst-leaked.
the install-script assumes that libdri.so is just a symlink to libdri.xorg, however this is not the case in recent xorg-server versions (in the last svn revision of the official catalyst package, the xorg-server PKGBUILD/install creates libdri.xorg and checks for symlinks etc).
So installing xorg-server, catalyt-utils and than removing catalyst-utils would leave you with a missing libdri.so.

/edit: Ah, Post #610.  tongue

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

A heads-up -- you might get the Flash plug-in crashing [segmentation fault] with the leaked Catalyst.

No, everething works with leaked drivers (and flash too)...

Except gnome-screensaver and xscreensaver. While using monitor+TV configuration (by RandR) with different resolutions on each monitor, the screensaver starts on main monitor in left top corner with smaller resolution (TV-resolution) and on other screen area is garbage (artifacts). If TV output is off in RandR the problem dissapears. With Catalyst 9.7 I have the same problem.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Any info about the performance in compiz?
Is it actually running and usable or just "barely working"?

does working compiz means kwin effects will work too?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

If Compiz works, everything else works as well (since Compiz is the most demanding compositing WM out there)

r6xx/r7xx compiz!

That is really amazing.:cool:
I wrote a package for the kernel modules: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=28981
Then i build mesa-git from AUR. But it doesnt work.
Do i also need to recompile ati-dri from git?

/edit: OK. r600_dri.so is miising. Replaced ati-dri with this.
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=28982

As a result what package should I use for 3D on 2.6.30 kernel?
Only this: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=28982 ?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx is a dependency of ati-dri-r6xx-r7xx.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Actually, you can install 1)mesa-kms (with --with-dri-drivers=radeon,r600. I think that --enable-gallium-radeon should be enabled, but I'm not sure ) which replaces --> mesa, libgl, ati-dri, 2)xf86-video-ati-git, 2) kernel26-git. The R5xx cards (and older) with CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS=y in config, can have then KMS. I don't think that KMS will work for the R6xx-R7xx.
