Wrong driver. 12.6-legacy is the right one for you. Your video card isn't supported by the "normal" Catalyst driver since 12.6.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Love that it's back in the official repos! Thanks to Vi0L0 for their work.

I of course realised today that I didn't add fglrx to /etc/modprobe.d/ so I've been running with no acceleration for 3 months :S

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi everybody,
For a long time I'm trying to get xvba acceleration work flawlessly on my legacy HD3470.
I am running x86_64 system and catalyst 12.6-legacy on it, and 3D acceleration in games work fine, so I assume the driver is configured properly. (kernel module in use is fglrx_pci).

And I'm trying to use mplayer-vaapi to play h.264 video in MKV container. But actually I have twice more CPU loading when I use -va vaapi -vo vaapi (about ~90% cpu) then when I start mplayer simply with -vo xv (about 40%). Here is the log of mplayer:

mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi X.mkv -ao sdl

  - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
  - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
  - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
    e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
  - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
  - Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
  - Try -nocache.

The proprietary xvba-video 0.7.8-5 is installed on my laptop. And also sometimes when I start mplayer with "-va vaapi -vo vaapi" the system hangs completely, and only hard reboot can fix this issue. I have tried installing OS version of xvba-video (0.8.0), but it hangs my system too often. I even hardly ever can start watching video with xvba 0.8.0.

Can you help me, guys?

Add: Tried installing xvba-video-open-0.8.0 again from community repos. Mplayer shows me the following error:

xvba_video: error: Assertion failed in file xvba_image.c at line 453


MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: flip_page
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Add2: My desktop manager is KWin, is it the case? Btw, in fullscreen mode compositing is automatically disabled and video plays smooth and tear-free, but CPU usage is still about 90%.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Two things I can think of:

1. Try another player to see if mplayer is the culprit (for example, wrong configuration file on your end);
2. Try what's mentioned in the NOTE in the Wiki:

Note: If Tear Free Desktop is enabled it's better to use:

Options -> Preferences -> General -> Video (tab) -> Output driver: vaapi

If Video Output vaapi:gl isn't working - please check:

vaapi, vaapi:gl2 or simply xv(0 - AMD Radeon AVIVO Video).

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Unia, thank you for your answer.

I tried using VLC and it shows about 30% cpu without acceleration and about 20% with. It seems that my problem is related to mplayer. I will continue searching in this way.

Another question still bothers me: why can't I use xvba-video-open 0.8.0 ?

If I'm correct, AMD dropped XVBA some time ago and left it to the community. This generated XVBA 0.8 which is ~ abandoned.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I don't know, I can use it. If you are using Catalyst from AUR or the unofficial repository, then perhaps because xvba gets build against the driver and xvba-video-open is built again catalyst-dkms?

So, try using either xvba-video-open and catalyst-dkms from [community], or xvba-video and catalyst from AUR or the unofficial repo.

Not only ~ abandoned, but also crippled - because community's version of xvba is missing some functions, that's why it's not working well (or not working at all)

There should be no difference when comparing catalyst from [community] with the one from [catalyst] / AUR - libs are the same, module compilation method is same (well here -generator differs a bit because it's additionally using user's flags from makepkg.conf, but it should be good for him only tongue).
xvba-video comes precompiled. And i doubt that xvba-video-open is using catalyst's libs when compiling (i'm not sure though).

I remember that sometimes i had to reinstall xvba-video / mplayer-vaapi and restart X / reboot to make it work right.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Guys, It was a false alarm, the video which I tried to play was not supported by vaapi. I have tried another video and mplayer shows different log output:

VO: [vaapi] 1280x720 => 1280x720 H.264 VA-API Acceleration 
[VD_FFMPEG] XVMC-accelerated MPEG-2.

CPU load is much lower now and xvba-video-open works well with this video. However, it still fails to fallback to YUV2 (and crashes instead) with that first video, so there must be a bug.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Tried 12.9 beta - rolled back to 12.8.

There seems to be issues with Wine using the 12.9 beta driver. These happen on Xorg 1.12 and 1.13 so I guess AMD made a driver change.

I am noticing 'forever' stalling loading some games (DA2 for example) with the following output spamming the console:

err:d3d_draw:drawStridedFast >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_FRAMEBUFFER_OPERATION (0x506) from glDrawArrays @ ../../../dlls/wined3d/drawprim.c / 60

Other applications are showing display corruption on recent (1.5.x) wine versions.

Always exciting to see new drivers! Altho, I do currently run 12.9 beta with Xorg 1.13. Can we also get Xorg 1.13 working with 12.10?

Who has tested these? big_smile

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I've just installed the 12.11 drivers in Ubuntu (don't shoot me wink). They seem to be working OK (first impressions) but you'll need to add a signature to /etc/ati/signature to get rid of the watermark (as normal for their beta releases).


1) Dell Studio 1749: i5 540 (2.5GHz), 8GB, ATi 5650, Intel 5300AGN, XFCE@U13.10x64
2) IBM X61: C2D T7200, 2GB, Intel Centrino, XFCE@U13.10x64
3) Compaq Mini 311c: Atom N270 (OC@2.0GHz), 3GB, Nvidia ION, Broadcom G+BT, KDE@U13.10x32
Comms: HTC Desire Z@JB4.2 (Flinny Andromadus CM10.1)

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

So which is recommended? Downgrading Xorg and use 12.10, or keeping Xorg1.13 and using the beta?

On a related note:

There's catalyst-total-pxp in the AUR but it still wants to replace libgl something... Should it be ready to work in the repos?
Does anyone know anything about muxless ("enduro") support?

Removing a watermark from a proprietary driver by patching some file... I mean, it's not a user doing it for him/herself, archlinux will "redistribute" that driver. Better safe than sorry.

I just replace a part of their new driver with a part of their old driver. It's their code, not mine.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Catalyst-dkms 12.10 from [community] works properly, you just have to rollback Xorg to 1.12.
