radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Hi,

ich created two PKGBUILDS for the r6xx-r7xx branch of the radeonhd driver. Therefor i need the new drm modules (also from the r6xx-r7xx branch).

You can get it here:
drm module: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24235

pkgname=drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx
pkgver=20090302
pkgrel=1

pkgdesc="radeon and drm module for xf86-video-radeonhd-git-r6xx-r7xx"
arch=(i686 x86_64)

_gitroot="git://git.freedesktop.org/git/mesa/drm"
_gitname="drm"
_branch="r6xx-r7xx-support origin/r6xx-r7xx-support"

build() {
    export MAKEFLAGS=""
    msg "Connecting to git.freedesktop.org GIT server...."

    echo ${_kernver}
    if [ -d ${srcdir}/$_gitname ] ; then
        cd $_gitname && git pull origin
        msg "The local files are updated."
    else
        git clone $_gitroot
    fi

    cd ${srcdir}/${_gitname}
    msg "Switch branch to r6xx-r7xx-support"
    git checkout -b $_branch

    msg "GIT checkout done or server timeout"
    cd ${srcdir}
    rm -rf ${_gitname}-build
    git clone $_gitname $_gitname-build
    cd ${srcdir}/$_gitname-build

    msg "Starting make..."
    cd linux-core
    make radeon.o || return 1
    mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/lib/modules/${_kernver}/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
    install -m644 drm.ko $startdir/pkg/lib/modules/${_kernver}/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
    install -m644 radeon.ko $startdir/pkg/lib/modules/${_kernver}/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
}

drm.install:

post_install() {
    echo "<<< Running depmod >>>"
    depmod
}

post_upgrade() {
    post_install
}

    make all || return 1
    make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
    install -Dm644 COPYING $startdir/pkg/usr/share/licenses/$_gitname/COPYING
    rm -rf $startdir/src/$_gitname-build
}

I have already some comments. So i need some testers and a little help.
On my desktop pc (Arch x86_64 and a HD4850) it works fine.

Maybe i missed some dependencies.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

I've installed drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx but I still have error:

In file included from r6xx_accel.h:4,
from rhd_driver.c:121:
/usr/include/xf86drm.h:40:17: error: drm.h: No such file or directory

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Can you paste the configure output?

Mine looks like this:

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Sounds like the wrong module is loaded.
What says /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?

Did you modify your xorg.conf?

2D acceleration is working very, very badly. I've serious problems with page scrolling in firefox etc. etc.

P.S. I have onboard graphic card HD3300 (motherboard ASUS M3A78-T)


EDIT: Adding Option "DRI" "on" did the trick smile Thanks

One question only: I have 270fps in glxgear and on catalyst 1200fps. Do you know when 3D hardware acceleriation will be added?


EDIT2:

I found one more error - 3D accel sad

(EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/r600_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/r600_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering

It seems that I have to be patient and wait for 3D accel.

Shouldn't the driver be "radeonhd" ?

Also, I was using xf86-video-radeonhd-git-20090219, which correctly recognizes my 4830, but the xf86-video-radeonhd-git-r6xx-r7xx-20090305 does not.  It fails in the same way as xf86-video-radeonhd-1.2.4 fails (recognizing the 4830 was committed to git after 1.2.4 was released).  Odd.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Oh, you are right. I was testing the radeon driver. The driver should be "radeonhd".

That curious. Did you try a newer xf86-video-radeonhd-git?

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

I have not yet.  The AUR page for xf86-video-radeonhd-git says it's intended for r5xx and r6xx chips, whereas mine is an r7xx, so I assumed that the package directly targeted for my card would be more appropriate.  Was that erroneous?  I did have trouble finding information on why there is a separate branch for r6xx and r7xx, though I didn't look terribly hard.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

I'm on a Mobility Radeon HD2400 here and after putting the following on xorg.conf it is working perfectly (the features that are supposed to be working that is big_smile ).
Very well done, Thank you for the pkgbuilds smile

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Some more experimental results:

xf86-video-radeonhd-git as of today works (but no Xv).

xf86-video-radeonhd-git-r6xx-r7xx/drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx do not work.  I tried the xorg.conf I'd been using with xf86-video-radeonhd-git, and the one that was successful for R00KIE; neither worked.  Both resulted in "(EE) No devices detected." even though the code that supposedly detects the 4830 is in that branch.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

@mimmozzo: Thx for the info. I added these 2 packages as dependencies.

I read that the r6xx-r7xx branch of the ati and the radeonhd driver was merged to master. So you also could use xf86-video-radeonhd-git or xf86-video-ati-git to get XV and EXA. But i think you must install the drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx to use the features. For me ati would be a little better, because it provides tear-free Video and i don't need HDMI (advantage of radeonhd). But it only works if i switch from radeonhd to ati without reboot. After reboot i get a blank screen. Mysterious hmm

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Well like I said it worked for me in a sort of new Arch64 install, I do have a mobility radeon hd2400 (although it doesn't seem to have any power saving capability either with catalyst or the oss drivers hmm). I could use xv and textured xv (with mapplayer + smplayer, textured xv seemed to be a bit faster). Still I noticed that sometimes the video wasn't as fluid as it should be but thats the drivers fault anyway (or some other factor, will sort that out soon enough when xserver 1.6 gets into extra). Also I am interested in being able to use my dvi output (to be able to connect an external monitor/projector) (with the latest xserver and xf86-video-ati in the testing repo its a mess, but with this driver it was not an issue at all).
If there is a pkgbuild for git radeonhd and ati drivers I will give them a try. Currently on my arch32 I'm using the xf86-video-ati driver as everything works as I want (and without a xorg.conf) but as I said soon enough that is bound to change.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Okay.  I now have drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx-20090305 and xf86-video-radeonhd-git-20090306 installed.  I've loaded the radeon kernel driver, and set up my xorg.conf similar to R00KIE's above.  xvinfo reports no adaptors present, and text scrolls *really* slowly in terminals.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Aha!  It appears the drm and radeon modules provided by the kernel package were being loaded instead of those provided by drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx.  Now xv works, which is really what I've been after.  Wheeeeeee!

I can't make it work on my arch32 install sad .... how did you make it load the proper modules?

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Instead of using modprobe to load the modules, I used insmod, specifying the full path (otherwise it loads the drm.ko and radeon.ko as provided by the kernel26 package).  I haven't yet looked into how to make this work with modprobe.

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Thank you, that did the trick. I'm now loading the modules manually in rc.local. Maybe later I'll try to figure out how to do it some other way. Now the bigger question is, why did it work well in my arch64 and not in my arch32? The kernel modules are there too and I haven't changed anything else in the system. The only difference I can see is this

On arch32

$ find /lib -iname drm.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/drm.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/char/drm/drm.ko

On arch64

$ find /lib -iname drm.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/char/drm/drm.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/drm.ko

I don't think this will influence anything though, but if someone knows better please do explain because I'm curious about this. Although .... if modprobe and whatever automagically loads the modules gets the same results as find then I guess it does explain why it works on arch64 and not on arch32.

Edit:
Maybe the pkgbuilds should have a big fat warning about this telling to load the modules manually or they might not work.
That or put a little script in /etc/profile.d/ that will load the proper modules automagically big_smile

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

Ok, i added a warning in the install file:

Run 'insmod /lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.ko' and
'insmod /lib/modules/2.6.28-ARCH/kernel/drivers/char/drm/drm.ko' as root before X-Server starts to ensure
that the system use the modules from this package an not the one from the kernel26.

/edit: I got a tip from paulez: the modules are now installed in the updates directory.
Is this problem solved now?

Re: radeonhd r6xx-r7xx and new drm-modules.

I confirm it does work fine on Arch32 without any "hacks/tweaks", I didn't test on Arch64 yet but it should work fine too, I'll edit this when I confirm that.
