Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@doblerone: your system is too much up-to-date, catalyst-hd234k requires xorg-server<1.13.0 as explained in the pacman output. Use the xorg-112 repo.

I think I'm using xorg-112 because I've installed catalyst-total-hd234k as it is explained in the wiki in order to install catalyst drivers.

You're right. I opened up testing only to install gcc (and multilib; and I know you shouldn't do it) and that fixed that.

Wait, wha? Why are you guys using this option anyway? Is it set as some global cflag?

I think you're using xorg-server>=1.13.0, as I can estimate from the pacman output. Moreover, installing catalyst-total-hd234k requires adding [catalyst-hd234k] to pacman.conf because the package is hosted in that repository, but this does not enforce also the usage of [xorg-112]. Are you sure you put the [xorg-112] repo above [extra] in /etc/pacman.conf? Please check this, and eventually post the output of: pacman -Qi xorg-server.

@Vi0l0: given the fact that [xorg-112] is used only for [catalyst-hd234k] compatibility, what do you think about merging [xorg-112] into [catalyst-hd234k]? That would save you some maintenance time and avoid this kind of problem...

Hi Vi0L0,

I'm trying to install it to be able to share folders between my host (Archlinux) and my guest (VM with Windows 7).
At least, reading the wiki, this is what I understood.

Is there any other way to do this?

@snack : this is part of my /etc/pacman.conf file

#[testing]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[catalyst-hd234k]
Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/catalyst-hd234k/$arch

[xorg112]
Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/xorg112/$arch

[core]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

is it correct, right?

I do like the way it looks now, it's logical. Beside it wouldn't help with this kind of problem.

Ok, the problem is that virtualbox-guest-utils depends on X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION=15.
To solve it you would have to get source of the package (pkgbase=virtualbox), via abs for example or www, change this dependency to X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION=12 (or remove it completelly ;P) and build (compile) the package against xserver 1.12, which you have installed.

Hi!
I've just updated to latest catalyst driver provided by Vi0l0 repository with the --force command as i read in this thread.
I have also catalyst hook installed in my system that now is giving this error when he tries to recompile fglrx module

i think my problems are inside "gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-fstack-protector-strong’   " but i don't know how to get rid of this error. Anyone?


EDIT:
I noticed that -fstack-protector-strong is only for gcc 4.9 and it is provided only in testing archlinux
so I activated the testing repo, made

# pacman -S libtool gcc

and then just

# pacman -R catalyst-hook
# pacman -S catalyst-hook

to let catalyst-hook proc and finally fglrx was compiled smile

Reading the makefile

# Handle stack protector mode.
ifdef CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR
  stackp-flag := -fstack-protector

    $(warning Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR: \

  ifeq ($(call cc-option, $(stackp-flag)),)
    $(warning Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG: \
	      -fstack-protector-strong not supported by compiler)
  endif

the problem is CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG being set instead of CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR.
That led me to this thread, "3.14.2-1 and CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG".

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

For people with the -fstack-protector-strong error: There's a bug report. I hope it'll get fixed soon.
In the meantime, either switch to [testing], or downgrade your kernel. You'll have to wait for gcc-4.9 to hit [core].

I don't use any option. I updated the kernel today and after that, I wasn't able to use "catalyst_build_module all" until I did the gcc update.

Thanks for the headsup. I was getting the very same problem during my update a few minutes again. Downgrading solved that.

@Violo

Maybe you should update the PKGBUILD to reflect that and increase the required version off gcc >= 4.9?

and force users to use [testing]? Beside that would be a lie since catalyst works perfectly fine with gcc 4.8. This bug came from an Arch dev and imho should be fixed in the arch repo asap.
BTW: wouldn't be safer to downgrade linux and linux-headers to 3.14.1?:

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I'm still experiencing refresh issues. It's really only an annoyance because windows are very jittery when being moved, there's tearing in videos every once in a while, and screenshots still don't capture what's currently on the screen. Everything is installed properly. I'm using "catalyst-total" from the AUR.

For those who haven't noticed yet, gcc 4.9 is now in [core] (thanks package ninjas) and the module builds like a charm.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Just did an update from 14.2 to 14.4, as well as replaced my old Radeon HD 6870 with a Radeon R9 270X, and now X seems to segfault on launch.

xorg.conf
Xorg.0.log

Also, running fglrxinfo seems to return

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

But you do know that gdm doesn't work?
fglrxinfo won't run without opened X session.
Check lsmod, is there fglrx and not radeon?
xorg.conf looks fine, was it created after gfx update?
You may just in case remove /etc/ati/amdpcsdb, it would be created anyway.

KDM doesn't work, startx doesn't work. I assumed GDM doesn't work either, but can give it a shot.

Well, that explains that mystery.

fglrx is listed, will check for radeon. I blacklisted radeon though, and no longer get those "UMS unavailable" warnings.

Yes. It was regenerated by aticonfig.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Huh...Thought I had already posted this, but whatever. I fixed my lag issues by tweaking compton a bit. Using it for tear free and v-sync handling instead of amdcccle, and animations and whatnot are smooth. Still having an issue with screenshot tools capturing what's not there, though. Seems to have gotten worse since I worked on compton.

Definitely shouldn't be capturing SLiM, heh.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Was experiencing the exact same problem with GDM and tried using SLiM as a workaround.  Also, downgrading to gdm-3.10.0.1-2-x86_64 seems to work, but it is incredibly slow at boot, as well as when restarting the display manager.  Has anyone found a solution for this problem yet?

I'm getting this exact same segfault since updating sad AMD E-350 here (HD6310).

Seems to be GDM specific, SLiM works fine.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@teozkr:
could you paste somewhere report generated by atigetsysteminfo.sh, and strace startx?
Did you try to use older catalyst, like catalyst 13.12 + xorg114 ?

Was it working fine with your new 270X?

Nope, same symptoms. Didn't think far ahead enough to grab logs though, hoped the update would fix it.

EDIT: As a side note, I'm now running a separate Ubuntu 14.04 install on the machine with no issues (closed drivers).
