Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

danboid:

So Chris G - whats the easiest way to cleanly install an older xorg? Obviously you do a 'pacman -R xorg' to remove any existing X but then what?

Well, I first started with...

pacman -U xorg-server-1.6.3.901-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

But pacman then complained that xf86-input-XXX depended on version 1.7.  And a dependency tree was realized.  In the end, I had downgraded...

you'll note that I had installed the xorg-x11-drv-psb at 21:32, but it would not build, so I removed it, and figured out that I needed to also downgrade libxext and xextproto which required all the other stuff to be downgraded as well.  That is all that I was able to determine needed to be downgraded.

imraro:

regarding your Xorg.log with error.  I am sure this means that something needed by the build is on your system which is for xserver 1.7 and so the module is getting built for ABI version 6, but xserver is ABI 5

module ABI major version (6) doesn't match the server's version (5)

if you look at what is required to build

xf86driproto>=2.1.0
glproto>=1.4.10
xorg-util-macros>=1.3.0

maybe these should have been

xf86driproto=2.1.0
glproto=1.4.10
xorg-util-macros=1.3.0

in PKGBUILD.  Verify this and build xorg driver again.

Just for fun I used the vga out and hooked it up to my 50' plasma.  After I worked out all the issues, I felt so disappointed because, I had no way to output the sound.

I have installed uswsusp 0.8-5, and have found that s2ram and s2disk work, but I have not had any luck with s2both.  Does anyone have any sugestions?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Hi Chris!

Thanks for posting your pacman.log, that tells me pretty much all the vital info I need for this undertaking, but I'm a total stickler for wanting to know how to do things in the easiest and most efficient way so I'm back to probe some more wink

Ignoring the packages that I will need to 'makepkg' and install myself, I count a total of 19 X-related packages that you had to downgrade to get psb working. Did you really download and 'pacman -U' ie manually install every one of those? Seeing as you downgraded 13 packages in the space of 1 minute after removing the psb driver I'm thinking (hoping) you may know a better way - you did say "...and a dependency tree was realised"?

Sorry to keep hassling you on this and thanks very much for all the help!

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

danboid,

Did you really download and 'pacman -U' ie manually install every one of those?

Well I did not have to download them cause I already had them in /var/cache/pacman/pkg cache.  I knew which ones I had to downgrade as I had done this several times testing the PKGBUILDs for everyone.  And as for manually installing, you do know that you can specify more than one package one the command line.

pacman -U pkgA pkgB pkgC...

"...and a dependency tree was realised"?

All I was trying to convey here is that if you try to downgrade xorg-xserver package, pacman will say, "Hey, packages x, y, z depend on this".  So the next step is to then downgrade package x.  But if another package k depends on x, pacman will tell you.  So this is in essence a dependancy tree.   Through trial and error, I figured out what I needed.

I do not consider this hassling!  good luck!

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

OK I've given your PKGBUILDs a go now Chris but I didn't get very far- no doubt because I tried to compile them against the ArchAudio RT kernel, my uname -a:

Linux myhost 2.6.31-rt #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Tue Nov 3 00:05:07 SGT 2009 i686 Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU Z520 @ 1.33GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

The psb-firmware PKGBUILD built and installed just fine but psb-kmod got as far as this before it bombed:

Any ideas or is it back to 2.6.30 and uvesafb?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I ran into the same issue with compiling xorg driver, that is why you have to downgrade xextproto to 7.0.5-1 and that should go away.  Be sure you have the correct versions of the packages in my pacman.log

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I did eventually succeed in getting all of Chris' PKGBUILDs to compile and install- as Chris rightly guessed I hadn't downgraded enough of my X but didn't get as far as an actual working X display. I got it to the point where it looked like X was initialising but then it would just hang on a black screen. I decided to give up using the current psb driver under Arch as I was experiencing freezes when just using the non-X terminal with the psb kmod installed so that didn't bode well for X or the system as a whole.

There has been some debate in this thread as to whether the current psb driver gives a significant performance advantage over using uvesafb so I decided to benchmark them using x11perf. My netbook is a Dell Mini 10 with 1GB RAM and both tests were run under the fluxbox window manager @ 1024x576 with no significant background tasks or other apps open.

The psb driver test was run under Ubuntu 9.04 x86 with kernel 2.6.28-13-generic, X.org 1.6.0 and xserver-xorg-video-psb 0.31.0-0ubuntu1. The uvesafb driver test was run under Arch with archaudio kernel 2.6.29-rt and X.Org X Server 1.7.1.902 (1.7.2 RC 2) with its fbdev driver. Its quite sad that fbdev outperforms psb by over a factor of 20 in some of the tests. Running the full series of tests takes ~150m in case anyone else wants to try:

2: uvesafb-x11perf

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Hi I just bought a Acer Aspire One AO751h with the GMA500 Poulsbo chipset.
At first I happely followed the acer aspire one wiki http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Acer_Aspire_One
until I found out that I had the laptop version with the poulsbo chipset.

I followed the link to this thread and tried to get the xorg-x11-drv-psb working. With no succes so far.
I ran into trouble because i had kernel 2.6.31 instead of 2.6.30 and I read the driver doesnt work with it.
And also I did not know how to configure my Xorg.conf for the psb driver.

Can anyone help me with the Xorg.conf? Going back a kernel version is something I will figure out.

when I get it to work I wil write a wiki. To help future archfans.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Ok I did not want to go back a kernel version afterall. Cause I want to be up to date.
So I found the same package as discussed here in the AUR database.
I decided to give it a try using yaourt . I first had the libdrm-psb conflict. but solved that.
After that it just compiled and installed with all dependencies without errors.
Then I added  'psb' to my modules in rc.conf and rebooted.
During boot my resolution changed. Text got smaller and cleaner.
then:

'X -configure' to create ~/xorg.conf.new
cp ~/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
change 'vesa' to 'psb' in my xorg and then 'startx'

I get the error
(EE) Failed to load module "psb" (module does not exist, 0)

seeking talked about this error at the beginning off this topic but i could not find his solution.
psb drm_psb agpgart i2c_algo_bit and 12c_core are all loaded.

I'm so close. Does anybody have an idea why the driver cant be found?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

whacath: I am not really interested in doing a wiki page because all development on this driver seems to have come to a halt.  It only works on xserver < 1.7.  This forces arch users to keep packages from receiving rolling updates.  As time goes by, this is more and more of a liability to users.  And, the performance gain is not worth it.  I am really just holding out in hopes that the rumors of a new version being released early next year.

merijn: if you would have read my posts, I have stated that this driver works with kernel 2.6.31 (latest arch).  That is not the issue.  The issue really is xserver dependency.  If you followed my posts, there should have been five packages from AUR that you should have built and installed.  During this install process, if you were orginally at xserver >= 1.7, you would have had to down grade packages as already described.  Not sure if you did this or not as your post completely leaves out mention of the other necessary pacakges.  If you installed the packages in AUR, you would not have to add "psb" to modules list in rc.conf.  Also, for xorg configuration, I have already described what is needed.  Did you even read the last three pages of this forum?

There is new IEGD beta driver for poulsbo. It already works with Ubuntu 9.10. Anyone wants to investigate that under Arch?

I'd like to know also. The main IEGD hardware matrix doesn't show the GMA500 as supported yet. I don't know if there's a separate beta page though.

This is only for Ubuntu. I didn't take the time yet to find out where they got their stuff from. That's why I asked here. Sincerely, this sounds like a great adventure for holiday season ;-)

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

http://fit-pc2.com/download/ubuntu/dists/karmic/source/

the only source I have found so far... if anyone can find anything more "raw", please post...  Will edit if I find something better to work with...

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchR … ion=Linux* so close, yet so far...

http://tid.ithaka.org/software/intel-em … c.rpm/view this sems promising... it is the newest vesin of iegd that I have found.  Admittedly, in my searching I saw version 8 in some level of correlation with Fedora 6... so version 9 that I just posted may be obsolete.  But it's the newest thing I've foud so far... gonna keep at this until I am satisfied.

http://www.caronico.com/linux/IEGD_10_0_Linux.tgz newest thing so fa... from: http://www.caronico.com/linux/msiwind-b … k3-en.html  admittedly, kinda annoyed that this is so difficult to deal with if you're not an Ubuntu fan (which I will never be).

ok, scratch all the other sources for now... 10.2 seems to be the newest thing out, and only available from intel's site. I found a feature/compaitibility list [ http://edc.intel.com/Download.aspx?id=1903 ] but unsure if psb is there.  My guess is that it is one of the US15x cards listed there, but would like someone to shed some light on this.

all this has me wondering whateve happened to that open-source graphics card project that I read about a few of years back.  Would have been nice if they were still around and had completed something by now.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Hi, the driver at http://fit-pc2.com/download/ubuntu/dists/karmic/source/ is IEGD poulsbo driver. You can see this if you have a look at http://fit-pc2.com/download/ubuntu/dist … .2.diff.gz. Part of the patch are new driver files. See linux-2.6.31/drivers/gpu/drm/iegd/drm/iegd_interface_2615.c in the diff file. Interface 2615 seems to be responsible for poulsbo.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

I'm not having the most trouble getting this setup, but could someone consolidate the important info of this thread into one post (maybe even a separate thread that's stickied)?  I find myself bouncing around to go from "step3" to "step4" and it's a slight bit frustrating... especially since the wikis for arch are pretty straightforward and easy to follow.  Hope I'm not asking too much...

EDIT:
same goes for the uvesafb/915 option... just getting a little lost bouncing from post to post.  Also wondering if the second option is viable for a fitpc2 connected to a 22in widescreen (as it currently fills the screen properly by default and displays text clearly.. it's just slow  when moving windows and such).  but getting things a bit more straightforward would be nice.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

if anyone is able to translate whatever is working for mandriva over to arch, that would be great... seems that 2010 rc2 has full functionality out of the box!

I tried with and without 915resolution and it doesn't help.

UPDATE:
Downgradign to 2.6.30 solved the issue.
Apparently uvesafb included in 2.6.31 doesn't work with this chipset sad

I also had the exact same issue (exact same error codes) and downgrading to 2.6.30 solved the issue for me as well.

It might be worth noting that I just recently bought my laptop and upgraded the bios to the latest version before installing Arch.

If anyone finds a better solution that would be great.

Same problem here. Anybody of you guys that knows a solution to this problem so we can run a up to date kernel too?

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

Anyone got this iegd driver running under Arch yet? A pkgbuild would be great of course. I only heard about this yesterday when phoronix mentioned their is a version of moblin that includes the iegd driver as standard now.

To clear up some confusion- SCH US15W is the new, super catchy name for Poulsbo which includes the GMA500, and US15W is down as a supported chipset on the iegd supported chipsets list on the intel site although they only openly proclaim support for Moblin and Fedora, regular Linux distro-wise.

Could you link to the phoronix article?

They only iegd driver i can find(ver 8) from intel's own site is from 2007.

[edit] Found a newer one, but it doesn't list GMA500 as a supported card.

Re: Poulsbo aka Intel GMA500 drivers PKGBUILD

the phoronix article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n … &px=Nzg2MA

from the forum for the article:

[...] There is nothing new about this driver. The IEGD driver has been available from Intel's IEGD space (as linked in his post) for over a year, and this version of the driver has been out nearly two months. It's got nothing to do with Gallium3D. Functionally it's slightly different from the psb driver. Olivier Blin at Mandriva tells me that it supports the Moblin UI (which psb doesn't). However, it only supports one of the two variants of the GMA 500 - it does not support the US15L. Like psb, the IEGD driver does not support X server 1.7.

It'd be good if you could update the article to not sound so excited.
