[SOLVED] xf86-video-ati 1:7.0.0.-1: segmentation fault

Hello,
just did a system upgrade (just xorg and xf86-video-ati were outdated) and with the newest radeon driver I can't start x. Manually recompiling the newest driver did not help, downgrading to 1:6.14.6-2 did.
Here is my xorg.log - any suggestions?
Greetings

//Edit: Bug is also tracked in the distro bugtracker and upstream

//Edit2: Xorg-server 1.13.1 fixes the issue for me

It is working fine for me on my Dell 610 laptop with:

lspci -nn | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV370 [Mobility Radeon X300] [1002:5460]

lsmod|grep radeon
radeon                788284  2
ttm                    46763  1 radeon
drm_kms_helper         28941  1 radeon
drm                   180042  4 ttm,drm_kms_helper,radeon
i2c_algo_bit            4583  1 radeon
i2c_core               16943  4 drm,drm_kms_helper,i2c_algo_bit,radeon

pacman -Q xorg-server xf86-video-ati
xorg-server 1.13.0-4
xf86-video-ati 1:7.0.0-1

I use kdm and kde runs fine with today's updates.

So I guess this must be specific to the original poster's graphics chipset or particular setup?

Re: [SOLVED] xf86-video-ati 1:7.0.0.-1: segmentation fault

I am using late kms (i.e. the default) - do those having a problem run with early or late kms?  Might make a difference?

I've tried both and it works fine for me in both cases.

I have two machines using this software:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Juniper [Radeon HD 5700 Series]

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV620 PRO [Radeon HD 3470]

I have two monitors attached to each of these cards.

I am experiencing the same issues. Likewise, the downgrade resolved the problem.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Whistler [AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series]

I have Lenovo e520 with dual video cards, intel and ati. Downgrade and removing the drivers causing the EE in xorg logs have solved the problem.

Does a pacman update to xf86-video-intel 2.20.13-1 fix it for those who had the problem?

Ignore my comment  - I was looking for an update to xf86-video-ati not intel!

Re: [SOLVED] xf86-video-ati 1:7.0.0.-1: segmentation fault

I have the exact same bug. I installed Arch yesterday and executing X resulted in radeon_drv.so segfault. Downgrading it didn't help, because modesetting_drv.so also segfaults. Instead the solution was to uninstall both xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-modesetting. The end result was that X ran with the intel driver and worked. My notebook configuration:

for me, on on 3.7.0-1-ARCH/x86_64, updating to xorg-server 1.13.1-1 fixes the problem, too.

Re: [SOLVED] xf86-video-ati 1:7.0.0.-1: segmentation fault

A friend of mine had the same problem and downgraded the xf86-ati-video package.

After a few more updates however the downgraded driver gave glitches.
I saw phanisvara's post,  we tried again and found that the segfaults went away with kernel 3.6.10 .
There will still some glitches (although less then with the previous xf86-video-ati) , like KDE menu hanging .
A switch to the 3.7.1-2 kernel in testing improved things a lot more, everything is now uptodate on his machine.


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