Hi all

Does anybody managed to solve crashes with the latest ATI driver?
I have HD5850 chipset.
It just crashes with the same config I used for 10.12. Crash dump:

Code:

I checked an idea in http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-865653-start-0.html , but it does not help.
I tested both on 2.6.36.2 and 2.6.37.1 (both vanilla kernels).
Do I miss something?

P.S. I'd love to use xf86-video-ati driver. It is rock-solid, but I need OpenCL support :(

Hye MageSlayer,

I have just helped a friend install gentoo on a system with HD6850 and we also used the Ati-drivers 11.2.

First I am going to ask a simple question have you checked eselect mesa ? I was unable to get X until I changed them to "classic" not the Gallium.

Second what verison of Xorg-server are you running ?

The ebuild for ati-drivers 11.2 says "<x11-base/xorg-server-1.9.99 "

I hope that I have helped in some way

Code:

den-desktop denis # eselect mesa show
i915 classic
i965 classic
r300 classic
r600 classic
sw classic

But I am not sure I understand what is the relation between mesa and proprietary driver?
I have X.Org X Server 1.8.2 as you in error log.
So, thanks for ideas, but it does not help :(.

Maybe you just need to reinstall fglrx.

What do you mean? When I reinstall ati-drivers I assume fglrx module is updated too.

OK,

I can tell you this

I assume that you have KMS included in your kernel. That you have allowed kernel to build in "firmware Blobs" (eg. REDWODD_rlc.bin and that others).

This is what I have got working (sorry I cannot provide portage info I don't have access to the machine atm)

"x86_64 system"
Kernel 2.6.37-r1
Ati-drviers 11.2
Xorg-server 1.9.4
libdrm-9999
randrphoto-9999
xextproto-9999
mesa-9999
eselect - 64bit r600 Classic

regarding the relation to Mesa and the proprietary driver

My understand (which may be limited) is the Mesa that Gallium is the newer is a 3d driver that relies on the kernel to look after the more DRI functions..

Good Luck let us know how u go

I am pretty much sure that KMS does NOT allow to use fglrx.
I tried several times to make it work. So KMS is off.
Firmware linking is enabled, firmware itself is radeon-ucode-20110106
All the rest is mostly the same, except kernel being 32bit and xorg v1.8.2

Hi guys

I managed to solve the problem.
And it appeared that the guy from the thread in my first post gave exactly the right solution.

But!!!
I was unaware that ATI invented Windows-registry-like settings file!
It is located in /etc/ati/amdpcsdb and this is where fglrx gets its settings from.
So you can change anything in your xorg.conf in Device section, but it won't be used!
Can you imagine that?!!?

So what I did:
- Copied /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default over /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.
That removed Capabilities and overlay settings previous driver version supported, but cause 11.2 just crash.
- Ran /opt/bin/aticonfig --initial=dual-head --tls=0
That initialized xorg.conf to support dual monitor configuration I have, and updated both /etc/ati/amdpcsdb and /etc/X11/xorg.conf with "UseFastTLS" option.

Now the summary, only aticonfig actually silently(!!!) updates /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.
So whenever you want to change something relating fglrx settings (like upgrade!!!), you need to use only aticonfig.

That deserves [some blood]/[FAQ/troubleshooting], imho.

Well. Not so fast. OpenCL does not fully work yet.
When calling clCreateFromGLBuffer function, X server crashes with the same error.

And as Gentoo is unsupported (as I was told here - http://forums.amd.com/devforum/messageview.cfm?catid=390&threadid=147545&enterthread=y), I am back again to the community.

Could somebody test BoxFilterGL example from sdk?

I have a HD 4850 and HD 6950, and I can't get OpenCL to work with either. I'm using the small sample programs from https://github.com/enjalot/adventures_in_opencl

I can get part 1 and part 1.5 to work, but trying to run part2 crashes X

Can you try those out and see if they work for you? maybe we can figure this out

someone over there needs to be dickslapped. Yes, this is the technical term, "dickslapped". The OS has absolutely nothing to do with this issue; all that is relevant, kernel version, driver versions, versions of graphics libraries, end of story. They are being lazy.Then again, if they do not want to help you resolve a bug because they are being lazy, screw 'em. Someone on a "supported" distro will still come along later and submit this same problem, exposing this same bug, and instead of them fixing the issue in the beginning when you report it, they will fix it much later and look like fools - and people will go buy nvidia cards because they are tired of waiting on slow responses.

FYI:

The latest 11.3 version still crashes BoxFilterGL example with the same error in syslog.
The last working combination of kernel and ati-drivers is 2.6.36.2 and 10.11.

FYI:

Disabling xinerama in ati-drivers-11.3 + linux 2.6.36.2 allows to run BoxFilterGL.
So at least I have a workaround now.
xorg.conf (half working dual-head) is given here - http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6651835.html#6651835
