Hi jamm,
I did what you said, however instead of having a file called mkinitcpio, I have the folder /etc/mkinitcpio.d/
Which contain example.preset and linux.preset. Neither of which contain the word 'hook'

(By the way: my xorg.conf file is a folder called xorg.conf.d)

Also, I get the predicted output with lsmod.

for me the command

aticonfig --initial

create the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

if I switch to intel only, the pxp script among other things mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.cat.

I think you have to analyze your /etc/X11 directory and try to found fglrx config. if there is not, try to recreate with aticonfig --initial and swich to amd: pxp_switch_catalyst amd.

After reboot it should work fine.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

After running aticonfig --initial my X11 folder has:
twm (folder)
xinit (folder)
xorg.conf (newly generated)
xorg.conf.cat (newly generated)
xorg.conf.d (folder)
xorg.conf.frx-0 (newly generated and cyan with ls?)
xorg.conf.original-0 (new)
xorg.conf.original-1 (new)

While switched to AMD, I rebooted my computer, and it crashed on poweroff. After I manually turned off my machine, it started up nicely. This never happens when swithed to intel (my default).

Also, If I don't remove xorg.conf, I still get the same error when I run startx.

What version xorg-server do you run? It should be 1.13.

Changing the default GPU (to integrated in my case) caused seg fault on shutdown for me too ( amd dual graphics not intel )
It has been fixed for my system in catalyst 13.3 beta 3.

Looks like I'm experiencing the bug where X crashes when I minimize (or restore possibly) konsole from the task bar.  I'm not sure if it's limited to konsole or other apps too....pretty sure it's just konsole though.  Pretty annoying :\  It seemed to be fixed for a while, then I think the last catalyst-dkms update caused it to come back.

I have the same bug with my 7950. I've  tried with catalyst 13.3 - 13.1 and xorg113 - xorg112, bug is still present. Is not only with konsole, it happens when i minimize any app or when i click on show desktop button from kde. This card is just terrible for linux, open driver is not an option.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hello,

I would like to use catalyst-total with my custom kernel whose modules exist on /usr/lib/modules/3.8.5-zen+.

It appears that /usr/bin/catalyst_build_module cannot find the correct directory (line 46 on catalyst-total 13.1-4). Is there anything to be done?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

catalyst-hook supports only kernels with the proper extramodules handling, so those for which
cat /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*/version == `uname -r`
If this didn't help - mail me.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

@SquarePony,
It seems that I met the same problem as you.After I upgraded my system today,I can't run X any more.If I remove xorg.conf ,X can run well.But if xorg.conf exists,X can't start.I think it may relate to the newest kernel.After all,it doesn't crash when I use kernel 3.7.10.

Here's my xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
	Screen      1  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
	Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
	Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Why you are trying to run X on intel with xorg.conf configured for fglrx?
One of the things that pxp_switch_catalyst script is doing is removing xorg.conf when you are switching to intel (edit: or linking xorg.conf to previously possibly created xorg.conf.oth with intel inside, possibly because not many people is using xorg.conf for intel). After switching back to amd (catalyst) it's linking previously backed up xorg.conf.cat to xorg.conf so fglrx could run.

About kernel 3.8 - there was some talk on aur that it's not working, but noone confirmed it. Is there anyone able to work on 3.8 kernel with -pxp package?
If noone will answer i guess that bug report will be necessary (could be that intel did change something important in their kernel 3.8 driver and so fglrx isn't able to talk with it)

Ok,I know what the problem is.My previous xorg.conf is also configuration for amd.so xorg.conf.oth is still xorg.conf for amd.And then...crashed.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Anybody seen this headline yet?  Sounds like they have open-sourced some decent stuff for the radeon lineup...

http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/03/amd- … VD-driver/

This seemed the logical place for this, sorry if it isn't.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Just stopping by to say that catalyst-total-pxp install from AUR is working for me on an HP Envy 15 3040-nr with a Radeon HD 7690M.  If anyone has any questions about this or similar set ups I'd love to help.

One important thing is the discrete card was still running when switched to integrated, so I have loaded radeon in modules-load.d and used a tmpfile to write OFF to vga-switcheroo which turned it off.

Is anybody faced this?

Hi!

I have sony vpcsb 4v9r with a ATI Radeon HD 6470M (+  Intel HD 3000, hybrid graphics).

There is xorg 13 and catalyst on my sustem (both from Vi0L0's repos)

catalyst-hook 13.3-4
catalyst-utils-pxp 13.3-4
lib32-catalyst-utils-pxp 13.3-4

The KMS is enabled, because the hybrid system use intel driver too.

The general issue that I have no display configuration in amdcccle even when it runs from root (kdesu).
http://i047.radikal.ru/1303/45/ae85caaf9daf.jpg

So, I try to set up "BIG Desktop" with a hdmi monitor for several days smile. Both monitors work fine in clone mode. But if I change Position one of monitors I get artefacts.

1. If i use kde system setting -> display and monitor and set for hdmi-connected Position: for example right of LVDS1 I get some blinking on two monitors and wrong window positions. As I understand it use xrandr 1.4 which installed on my desktop:

libxrandr 1.4.0-1
randrproto 1.4.0-1
xorg-xrandr 1.4.0-1

2. if I use arandr (visual front end for XRandR 1.2 as stated in man-page) I get the same issue.

3. the same if I use xrandr command.

4. I try to disable xinerama and xrandr12 as it as stated in wiki:

aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE"

but in my xorg log I see this:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep -i rand

as I understand fglrx ignored "DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE" option.

So, if I disable ati by command

pxp_switch_catalyst intel

everything works fine.

I have to change monitor configuration on fly, because it's laptop and I can't set configuration permanently in xorg.conf. I have one monitor on work one more at home and it should possible to config (enable, disable, change position, use only LVDS) without X restart.
Is it possible on my hardware with catalyst?

P.S. amdcccle show my card as AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series (but I have HD 6470M).

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Hi,
I am using the 'catalyst-hd234k' repo and have 'catalyst-hook' installed.

Since the update to pacman 4.1, I am being asked to replace catalyst-hook:

:: Replace catalyst-hook with catalyst-hd234k/catalyst-daemon? [Y/n] n
:: Replace catalyst-hook with catalyst-hd234k/catalyst-generator? [Y/n] n

I believe this is because both catalyst-daemon and catalyst-generator have catalyst-hook in their replaces array:

$ pacman -Si catalyst-daemon | grep Replaces
Replaces       : catalyst  catalyst-hook

$ pacman -Si catalyst-generator | grep Replaces
Replaces       : catalyst  catalyst-hook  catalyst-daemon

The result is that any of the packages - catalyst, catalyst-hook and catalyst-daemon - will eventually be replaced with catalyst-generator if you keep answering 'Y' to pacman.

Is this intended?
Thanks.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Since pacman 4.1 the SyncFirst option seems to be no more recognized:

$ sudo pacman -Syu
warning: config file /etc/pacman.conf, line 19: directive 'SyncFirst' in section 'options' not recognized.

Could this be a potential problem with catalyst-hook?

You have a new pacman file in /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew.
Merge changes or replace your old file with this.
You would have seen this during the upgrade to pacman.

I think he meant using SyncFirst to ensure 'linux-headers' gets installed before 'linux'.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Yes. For now also pacman doesn't support hooks, it has been planned for a long time but not merged in any way.

So yes - it looks like automatic recompilation won't be possible with catalyst-hook, at least for the kernels with a separated headers.
We've lost catalyst-daemon because of systemd, and now catalyst-hook because of the pacman tongue
Surely they were using some kind of "hacks" but you can't say that they were not useful.

I was considering removing catalyst-hook completely to avoid uncertainty, but I'm not sure that it would be the good step.
Of course I do personally prefer catalyst-generator and I was always trying to promote it tongue but now, in the age of signed packages, catalyst-generator could become painful for some users tongue
So i guess that i will leave catalyst-hook, just with a little modification and the proper note.
You can still use it with linux, just remember to type something like:

catalyst_build_module all

after linux update. Or you can manually install linux-headers at first if you will notice its update...

Looks like i could be afk today, so it's possible that i will update packages tomorrow.

BTW:
Since this new change will also touch mkinitcpio-dkms I guess that also catalyst-dkms users would have to manually update dkms' modules before rebooting - am I correct or was dkms fixed somehow?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

On my old system: mobo: EPOX-8rda+; AMD-Barton 2600+;  1,5 gb DDR1; Saphirre Radeon 4650HD; hdd=40gb with arch , lts-kernel, I can install Catalyst 11.10, 11.11(from AMD.support.com) but nothing later, not even 11.12 on the same (or other) settings.
  I tried xorg 11/12 with catalyst-hd234k (catalyst-hook +catalyst-utils), catalyst-hd234k-12.4, catalyst-total from AUR, catalyst-legacy-13.1... with nomodeset in syslinux, then in grub-bios, with loading fglrx at boot, blacklisting radeon; fglrx module is created, loaded (modprobe fglrx return nothing) but startx gives me : Illegal instruction at adress 03f.....xserver:connection refused ; argument list too long, closing log file. And /var/Xorg/...log file shows no EE but Backtrace with point 4. ?? (nill).
    I tried patch-3.8 on kernel 3.8.4-1 with catalyst legacy 13.1 from their site without succes.
Anyone encountered this problem? Catalyst 11.11 works better than open-source but not enough. Can i overcome this problem in some way? Thank you for any idea.

We had a working catalyst-hook, until the recent upgrade to pacman 4.1, which automatically compiled the kernel module for each kernel upgrade. I don't know which flavor of catalyst package you use, nevertheless recompiling the module is the first thing I would try to solve the problem.
