Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Oh sorry, i read libdricore.so.
libdri.so should be in the xorg-server package. Try reinstalling it.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

thanks, that fixed the dri problem.

unfortunately, i'm still using the softwear rasterizer.

OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project                                            
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer                                   
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.6-devel                                     
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

i'm getting two errors in xorg.0.log

(EE) RADEONHD(0): AtomBIOS command table 47 does not exist

(EE) config/hal: couldn't initialise context: unknown error (null)

the first i've seen posted a couple times from people who had it working, so i assume its not my problem.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Now it loads up, and I get pretty good fps in glxgears. At least I think I do, I can't see it myself. I get a black screen instead of anything that uses OpenGL.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

[jamie@mesaana ~]$ glxinfo|grep -i OpenGL
IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 16
no rrb
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RV620 95C4) 20090101 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 7.6-devel
OpenGL extensions:

I think the "no rrb" is the problem.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

This one

IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 16

I have that too (even though I have a R500 card). Every time I run glxgears, it wants to be syncronised to my screen's frame rate :-/

This feature is just not implemented. Don't worry about this message.

I also have the no rbb message. But everything works fine.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Consult these:

http://wiki.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature
http://wiki.x.org/wiki/RadeonProgram

And/or just try both.

I prefer xf86-video-ati-git. But xf86-video-radeonhd-git should work too.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

I just compiled a few *-git packages in the AUR and went from 30 FPS in glxgears… to 40 FPS in glxgears. tongue

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

With latest radeon-git drivers, Gnome 2.26.3 and latest compiz-git  I have problem with refresh of input text in gnome-terminal and sometimes in other other apps (f.е. Opera textareas and seach fields).

after switching to another window and returning back it redraws:

Force synchronization between X and GLX option in Workarounds doesn't help.
Any ideas to fix this?

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

Compiz-git ? It hasn't had an update since March, and the current (C++, not the previous, compiz fusion one) compiz is highly unstable. Try with the stable Compiz fusion again.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

javum, you are using an r6xx/r7xx card?

This is a known problem for these cards. 3d acceleration is still in development. All you can do is wait.

This sounds exactly like Ati. Not the first time, they did that.

Edit: Seems like it is ready now, but 92 MB? Are they serious? I thought, they dumped support for R100-R500.

text file said file not found smile

kinda hard to blame them for not having the driver up when it hadn't been released yet.

Try it, it is downloadable (I'm doing it right now).

And for the textfile: They did this 1 or 2 times with the official release. Last year, I think.

Change version numbers and MD5 sums in the old PKGBUILD, and comment out all of the patch sources, lines, and respective MD5 sums.  You won't need them.  Also, note that if you are using a custom kernel, DRM must be compiled as a module, or else the fglrx module won't load.

Re: The AMD/ATI Bar & Grill

i removed all the kernel patches from the build and it installed cleanly

interestingly enough, i'm getting higher fps in glxgears with compositing enabled then i am with it disabled for the release. ~1500-1600fps with compositing ~1200 without.

time to do some more testing.
