Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@arctos: at least to get mine to work, I wrote a manual xorg.conf. aticonfig won't generate one, and it doesn't autodetect that fglrx is compatible. But a manual xorg.conf with fglrx as the device does make it work.

That's weird. I'm having the same issue with 6310 and this xorg.conf doesn't help me.

Upd: oh wait, it actually kinda helped. I still decided to downgrade to 12.4, though.

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.

Yeah, I have the same issue. Im using Lenovo X120e with this card

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

For the moment, I reverted back to the open source driver.
Until the Catalyst driver gets updated, I think I will stick with radeon driver
Thanks guys smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I have downgraded to 12.4 again w/ xorg111.

12.6 is fine for me (Mobility Radeon HD5470) except for the mplayer issue. I also noticed some lags with my mousepad sometimes, but I guess that's xorg112 related.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi,
After the upgrade to 12.6 I couldn't get X to start and downgraded to 12.4 with pacman -U <old versions of catalyst-hook, catalyst-utils and lib32-catalyst-utils>. Now I can start X, but still don't get the DRI running. I also tried catalyst_build_module with no effect. ack 'WW|EE' /var/log/Xorg.0.log gives me this:

Try running mkinitcpio -p linux and reboot. Also, with 12.6, did you create a new xorg.conf? If so, make sure you reverted this change. Lastly, did you also downgrade Xorg again?

I upgraded xorg to 1.12, but that didn't help. I also ran 'mkinitcpio -p linux' and rebooted. But that doesn't help either. X starts and runs but without hardware acceleration. Everything ran fine with previous driver version.

Thanks in advance,

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I reverted back to the open source radeon driver for now and that fixed any issues I had: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI#Installation

KMS sure looks better when switching back and forth between TTY and X, perhaps I'll stay with radeon. I rarely need the extra fglrx performance anyway.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Have you also noticed a performance regression with 12.6?
My FPS were always at 125 FPS in ioquake3 games.
Now I experience heavy FPS fluctuations. sad

That's because you haven't redirected enough power to the catalyst flux capacitor.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

So, as nothing worked to fix my situation, I used this wonderful procrastination opportunity and switched to the open source driver. Now DRI is back, which is great, but I can't set the resolution. The Wiki article states, that the driver would set the native resolution automatically, which it didn't and I can not set it via Gnome's display settings. When I try I get:

could not assign CRTCs to outputs:
Trying modes for CRTC 79
CRTC 79: trying mode 1360x768@60Hz with output at 1360x768@75Hz (pass 0)
[repeats with different numbers]
none of the selected modes were compatible with the possible modes:

xrandr did it, but I would still like to be able to use Gnome's display manager. On the other hand... I won't change the resolution anyway.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

With every update it's usually 50:50 whether suspend will work or not. I'm not sure whether it's Kernel updates that break this or catalyst. Does anyone else have similar behaviour?

My current setup allows for suspending (even multiple times without rebooting) and I think I'm going to freeze both catalyst and the kernel versions for a few months.

It's good to know that 1.12 support is there, in that case. I'll probably wait until it leaves beta stage anyway, but thanks for testing smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I don't have time right now for the update sad, also tomorrow i'm working so probably i will perform update on sunday.

Testing watermark on 12.6 legacy beta should go away if you will use /etc/ati/signature file from other non-testing catalyst driver, here's content of this file taken from stable 12.6 (just one line):

5da725748a98681ea0dd5ee8eeeff730:65891c4ca7a95a2e96ec6f89c3dec30169961537a7d93c5780ea66d8dddfc2:6b921d4dbbfb5c7dc1ea3fd1db8ec55564914017bcfe5027c3ee3a8d8ddcc7016b9e1c42bbad5b29c1ea3ad1dd8cc20765974015bcae0c26c4b93a8e8ddd


As for stable 12.6 and unsupported hardware watermark maybe this script will work:

#!/bin/sh
 DRIVER=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
 for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
 sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
 done

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

^No, it's not made to do that. That script is only to remove the watermark.

There is a 12.6 legacy driver coming, that you can use on your HD4650 card. It's currently in beta
