Re: Discussion: the ati/radeon open source drivers & radeon repository

Ok. Not working. sad
I can get hash rates up to ~500khash/s, but no shares. No rejected or accepted. No errors also. GPU heats up wery much. If I pump intensivity I can get it go beyond 90°C.

I also tried mandelbulber-opencl which fails also with every OCL setting I could try. But I think It requires too many features of OpenCL spec. Afaik scrypt should not.

If someone knows something about opencl, it would be nice if he/she could look at it and get in touch with the author.
You can read the latest comment by me on the package from 2014-05-02 19:24. I tried to maybe work around the limitations of the current opencl implementation, but I was not very successful:

Re: Discussion: the ati/radeon open source drivers & radeon repository

Does anybody else experience problems with fullscreen applications?
My logs (/var/log... and dmesg ...) did not show any errors.
But when I am trying to run eg. dota 2 or minecraft in fullscreen it either does not change anything or just produces strange images.

Needspeed,

are you using a composite window manager  (KDE & Gnome do that, some standalone compositors are compiz and compton ) ?
If so, try disabling it.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Discussion: the ati/radeon open source drivers & radeon repository

Hey guys, if any of you has problem with kernels 3.15+ and dual graphics (freezing, dmesg spammed with "Link Down event ignored on slot(2): already powering off"), read this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 4#p1434054 and https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79701

On topic: if you want to help with the dev'ing of OpenCL, I suggest talking (reporting bugs, asking for help, whatever) to tstellar through IRC, channel #radeon @ irc.freenode.net : https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=radeon , but read this first: http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Gallium … /#index2h1

Update on this: As shown in https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79701#c2 and http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthre … post428972 , the solution (or, perhaps, workaround) is to disable "OSC" from the BIOS.

You should change the version of xf86-video-ati-git, if not it does not get updated and then there is a conflict with latest xorg packages... It took me a while to understand where the issue was smile

Hello.
Seems like ati-dri was compiled for a different version of mesa-git because I can't install ati-dri-git for this reason:

I've cleaned the repo db from obsolete packages, please test.
ati-dri-git doesn't exist anymore, all dri drivers are merged inside a mesa-dri-git package.

libdrm and especially lib32-libdrm are kind of out of date.

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/c … 4d6625b5a6 requires a newer llvm version.

Just FYI.

Re: Discussion: the ati/radeon open source drivers & radeon repository

Sorry but 110 pages is too long to read all the way.

If I install xf86-video-ati , am I getting full hardware acceleration or do I need to do tweaks?
My card is a 2400 series (r600 yes?).

Never mind I was too hasty. My apologies.
The answer is in the wiki.

lordheavy, do you mind adding libclc to the provide list of libclc-git ?
That way packages that depend on libclc, will accept libclc-git as well.

Also, would you mind building the pkgbuild for the nine state tracker?
That would be of use to people using wine.
