Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

archive catalyst's repos cleanup
is anybody using archive catalyst repositories (i'm not talking about xorg nor catalyst-hd234k repos)?
Archive repositories were moved into catalyst-hd234k directory when catalyst-hd234k repo was created, seems like nobody noticed that, so i'm thinking about cleanup...
Archive repositories were not and won't be updated.
If you are using archive repo then please tell me about it, i'm planning to remove all archive repos on ~1 of July 2012


new clean patch for i686 to support 3.4 kernel
AUR's catalyst, test, total, total-hd234k, firepro, generator, hook and daemon were updated with this new patch found by 3V0LU710N and created by Sebastian Siebert from OpenSUSE!

Also generator, hook and daemon on [catalyst-hd234k] i686 repo were updated

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi everybody!

I'm using a laptop with two AMD gpus (HD 6520G and HD 7670M).

I installed latest catalyst drivers from catalyst repo. I only installed catalyst package and then runned aticonfig. Is this correct way to install or do I have to use any hook or daemon too? Wiki section was a bit confusing.

But in Ati Control Center when I choose high performance card then it is not working imo. Laptop has a dedicated led showing when high performance card is running, but that aint lid. Also it wants a restart after every change hmm.

How can I make sure which card is running currently?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Much thanks also from me Vi0L0!
The idea of creating the packages for the lts kernels is really nice.
So hopefully you will be motivated some time left.

Do you think that xorg111 can be used / compiled also when some underground changes to libraries have been made?

Best Regards

Yup, this idea came originally from Apollo Costa.

If it won't force me to do some developer's work (as i'm not a developer) i can surelly do some recompilation, just let me know if you will get some problems with it.

Thanks again, also I'm sure that there will appear some patches in the Internet, if anything breaks the "old" xorg. ;-)

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Recently updated, xbacklight doesn't work anymore ("No outputs have backlight property").
Downgraded, also kernel, installed catalyst-test from AUR, xorg-server 1.12 but nothing solve it. BTW fullscreen Flash works now with newer versions.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Just stumbled upon this thread.
Vi0L0 or anyone else, do you think you could take a look at this thread of mine? https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 4#p1122614
I'm sure I'm doing something stupid, but I can not get Catalyst to work with a custom x86_64 linux-3.4 kernel (old_rsp undefined).

Edit: Fixed my problem by manually running the catalyst_build_module commands and MAKEPKG, I have no idea why the supplied package in the AUR does not correctly build the patched the source files.
Edit 2: Turns out its a problem with the 3.4 patch to kcl_ioctl, not calling DEFINE_PER_CPU, because CONFIG_X86_X32 is set on my x86_64 machine. Why?
More info: See post 6 of https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 8#p1122680

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Well after that fun I have now ended up with a bug report.
I'm sure where the best place to state it is but
Compiling a kernel with CONFIG_X86_X32=y on a x86_64 machine with a 3.4 kernel breaks this module with the error

fglrx: Unknown symbol old_rsp (err 0)

The solution is to either remove that config from the kernel, or patch the 3.4 patch like so

+//#ifndef CONFIG_X86_X32
+DEFINE_PER_CPU(unsigned long, old_rsp);
+//#endif

Is this a fault in the patch, or should I really disable this kernel flag?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

12.6 is out, but some people seem to be having problems getting the driver to work ('Unrecognized hardware', and the watermark). Sticking to the beta myself for the time being.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

The only good news for me is that the legacy driver will get xorg 1.12 support.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

catalyst 12.6

all mainline catalyst packages @AUR and [catalyst] repo were updated to catalyst 12.6 version.
12.6 stable is afaik same as 12.6 beta (known here as catalyst-test)


12.6:

- supports Radeons HD >= 5xxx ONLY   (hd 2 3 4k users please use catalyst-total-hd234k @AUR or [catalyst-hd234k] repo)

- supports 3.4 kernel (through patches);

- supports xorg-server 1.12



@Smasher816: i will look at it as soon as i get more time (probably tomorrow)

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Allow me to pitch this as well: 12.4 and 12.6 allow h.264 High@L5.1 hardware-accelerated playback through XvBA. Before, it used to be limited to High@L4.1.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Thanks Vi0L0, just upgraded! However, I'm having the same issue as I had with the 12.6 beta driver: I get black screen/flashes in mplayer (using vaapi w/ xvba-video). Is there a solution for this, except for switching to another decoder? I'd like to keep using mplayer-vaapi.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I've been having problems with xvba-video since I upgraded to 12.6 with catalyst-test, it only works as root. And after installing the new catalyst-hook, I get the Unsupported Hardware watermark, even though I have a 6310.
Hardware acceleration for smooth 1080p playback on my netbook is the main reason I use Catalyst, this is a real deal breaker for me =/

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I'm using the RadeonHD 6310. The upgrade is giving me the "AMD Unsupported Hardware" watermark, and aticonfig says that no supported adapters are detected. Has anyone else noticed this?

I did use the Radeon 6870 script from the wiki to remove the watermark, and with a manual xorg.conf it works fine. I'm just wondering if anyone else noticed this and if anyone knows what changed.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

From phoronix:
"For users running supported hardware, some of them are getting the notorious unsupported watermark logo"

Guess that for some users 12.4 is better, at least till amd will fix it.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Updated everything today. Catalyst 12.6 (built using Catalyst hook) on 3.4.4-2-ck kernel working fine. I even updated to Xorg 1.12 and tested the good old video crashing bug.
(HD5750 on Lenovo Y560).

Nice to have everything at the latest version for once, though I suspect we're going to need an x112 repo once 1.13 gets released, because that's just the way it is.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

If you haven't yet, add the [xorg111] repo to your /etc/pacman.conf and run pacman -Syuu to downgrade Xorg. Then, get the old 12.4 packages (maybe in pacman's cache?) and install them manually with pacman -U <package>
