Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

My user is in group 'video' and for good measure I tried adding root to group 'video' as well, but it didn't work. I seem to have the exact same issue as sindikat on the previous page, but sindikat just removed xorg.conf and that solved the problem - in my case I tried removing xorg.conf.d/ (this breaks all keyboard and mouse input) and removing 10-monitor.conf - this seems to just default to the vesa driver. I'm assuming that if I get the psb driver working it will use native resolution... I can post my 10-monitor.conf later today, maybe there is something obvious I am missing.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Ok, so as stated on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg I don't have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d with the following files:

10-evdev.conf wrote:

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

>> failed to load kernel module "psb"
how you are building psb-kmod package? maybe you need to reboot after building kernel modules, for fine automatic module loading

or try to load modules manually (modprobe psb, if it says something like "can't find module named psb", insmod /var/lib/modules/... /psb), and see dmesg for errors. I hope you don't need to do this, and reboot solves the problem smile

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I built the psb-kmod package from AUR:

cd ~/build/
tar -xzvf psb-kmod.tar.gz
cd psb-kmod/
makepkg -i

I followed similar steps for all the packages on the page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Poulsbo in the given order and they built and installed without errors:

1) psb-firmware
2) psb-kmod
3) libdrm-poulsbo
4) xpsb-glx
5) xorg-x11-drv-psb.

I have been rebooting every time I make a change to my xorg configuration unfortunately so it is not just a matter of rebooting.

[fib@eeefib ~]$ modprobe psb
FATAL: Error inserting psb (/lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/psb.ko): Operation not permitted
[fib@eeefib ~]$ sudo modprobe psb
Password:
FATAL: Error inserting psb (/lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/psb.ko): Cannot allocate memory

I don't seem to have a /var/lib/modules/ directory.

The only semi-relevant error I can see in dmesg are these two lines:

[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm:i915_init] *ERROR* drm/i915 can't work without intel_agp module!

I have both libdrm and libdrm-poulsbo installed, I don't know whether this is relevant.

Edit:

[fib@eeefib psb]$ sudo insmod /lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/psb.ko
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/psb.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
[fib@eeefib psb]$ sudo insmod /lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/drm-psb.ko
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/extra/psb/drm-psb.ko': -1 Cannot allocate memory

Again not sure if that is relevant or not...also, I am running the commands in this post after X has started with the vesa drivers, is that the wrong thing to do?

Edit: tried "sudo modprobe -v psb" without X started. It seems to try to insmod drm-psb and gets the "Cannot allocate memory" error.

> [drm:i915_init] *ERROR* drm/i915 can't work without intel_agp module!
i think some module conflicts with drm-psb or psb, check lsmod | grep drm, try to blacklisting/unloading modules. after you got "Unknown symbol in module" check dmesg for details (this error indicates that module dependencies not loaded)

also, you can try previuos version of kernel module

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Ah, this seems like the right track! After "rmmod drm_kms_helper" and "rmmod drm", "modprobe psb" succeeded! The screen brightness changed but the display became messed up. I tried typing "rmmod psb" but it didn't go back, I could not see what I was doing so I typed "reboot". During the shutdown process the display was at native resolution! I can't remove the libdrm package because it is required by libgl, mesa, and xorg-server. Is there a way to prevent the drm module from being loaded?

Edit: in my rc.conf, MODULES=() and MOD_AUTOLOAD is enabled. I think I could disable it and use the output of "hwdetect --modules" for MODULES?

Yes you can, also you can blacklist module by adding "!" before it, like MODULES=(!drm_kms_helper !drm)

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I tried both that and using the modprobe blacklist...didn't work. Then after about the fifth time I was typing "sudo rmmod drm_kms_helper" I realised that it was loading drm because I'd tried enabling KMS following the wiki page on Intel drivers months ago! I've removed the intel agp modules from /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and am rebuilding my initramfs now.

Edit: awesome, that worked! Thanks a lot for your help. I feel I learned a lot about linux this morning. Now I just need to work out how to adjust the brightness that doesn't require a sudo smile

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Not wanting to spam this already long thread I still feel I have to give credit where credit is due and again it shows the amazing work of the arch community.

Today I followed this thread from beginning to end and was at times really enthusiastic about the breakthroughs, being so that I gave up getting a proper video driver for this back in February, this was very promising. Now that the result is that we didn't get the proper driver in the end I would just thank you for all the hard work trying to get there. And after all, the fbdev solution is really tolerable. I can finally watch video here without installing something besides arch. Just yesterday I considered looking for a new net/laptop. No longer.

Cheers, you lot!

PS: I am still looking into tweaking the performance however. Glxgears gives a lousy 20 FPS in half window!

Why can not I change the brightness?

I type type 50 in /sys/class/backlight/psblvds/brightness, and :w to save, but it says

Why?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

There is a new emgd driver out "http://edc.intel.com/Software/Downloads/EMGD/". Apparently for meego it compiles agaist xorg 1.8. Has anybody tried to compile this for arch against xorg 1.9?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I recently purchased an Asus EeePc 1201HA. It has the poulsbo chipse and I just assumed that an intel chipset will have good linux support. Adding mem=1783MB to the kernel boot parameter made resume from suspend to disk and mem with uswsusp much more reliable. kwin effects work with xrender though very slow.

the brightness script works unfortunately the backlight does not go quite as dark as with vesa driver.

I would like to thank everybody for the excellent psb driver in AUR. Mandirva and Ubuntu both have psb support . I have tried both and it was far easier to set it up iin Arch.

Hi !

I have cooked a few PKGBUILDs for myself, and I thought others might enjoy it as well wink
They contain poulsbo driver used in some netbooks. They are accelerated for 2d and 3d, but rely on a proprietary driver.

Please find the PKGBUILD here: http://julienetienne.free.fr/Arch/abs/
And you could test by adding the [ixar] repository in your pacman.conf:
[ixar]
Server = http://julienetienne.free.fr/Arch/repository

Just do "pacman -Sy xorg-x11-drv-psb" to get the driver and its dependencies.
After that you need to "modprobe psb" and edit "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" to use the "psb" drivers.

It works for me. I hope It will work for you as well wink
Do not hesitate to enhance the PKGBUILD as I am sure they are badly/quickly written.
I would be glad to get patches from you.

FYI the PKGBUILD were adapted from AdamW work for fedora packages that can be found here: http://www.happyassassin.net/2009/08/17 … 0-support/

Enjoy !

Edit: missing Xorg driver added.
