Hi I got following problem since some weeks:

le1558 lu # lspci | grep VGA
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Manhattan [Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series]
le1558 lu # lsmod | grep fglrx
fglrx 5004559 144
le1558 lu # aticonfig
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected


Everything else is working fine. How to tell aticonfig to detect my card again?


thx :)

Code:
emerge linux-firmware ati-drivers xorg-server
aticonfig --initial
you may have lost sync

linux-firmware just contains all firmware parts, while the split packages allow a more selective installation, and thus less cruft.

The radeon firmware, which is included in radeon-ucode, and in the larger set of linux-firmware, is only needed if you're going to use the open source, in kernel, radeon driver. If you're using fglrx, (ati-drivers), you don't need to install either one.

Also, if you use fglrx, (ati-drivers), you need to make sure you don't have any in kernel radeon drivers selected.

Good Luck..

I have installed both, so i can switch with a simple script between the drivers.
aticonfig --initial wont work here, because it does not detect my card. :(
Upgrading to x11-drivers/ati-drivers-13.1:1::x11 right now, but i really think that this does not solve my problem. :(

any other thoughts?

Loading both drivers at the same time is not working I think.

Code:

le@le1558 /lu $ lsmod | grep fglrx
fglrx                5004559  217
le@le1558 /lu $ lsmod | grep radeon

If you are on a laptop with hybrid graphics suggest editing title to reflect hybrid grahics
can you disable either card at the bios level ? with a key or key combo when running?
suggest google search for linux hybrid graphics and a forum search for radeon hybrid graphics switcheroo

no hybrid graphics here

Some magic (I really dont know what) happened!!!

Code:

le@le1558 /lu $ aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature

Adapter 0 - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series
            Sensor 0: Temperature - 56.00 C


Thx all for helping!! :))

x11-drivers/radeon-ucode, sys-kernel/linux-firmware are not needed when it comes to fglrx.

what initial version of ati-drivers have you installed?

Th previously installed version is 13.1-r200. The first driver version on this system...I cannot tell you. This was back in 2009 and is not documented anymore...

try doing a small regression test to see where it has started.

opening the question, "What is the source of your drivers?" The 13.1 version is working well on an hd5700 series.
http://packages.gentoo.org/package/x11-drivers/ati-drivers shows the 13.1 version as still hardmasked and not keyworded so putting it into the testing branch must be a brand new action. Suggest you try masking and keywording as needed to use 13.1.

I really dont think that this is the problem. It should be a local one. As you see in this thread earlier, that I hat this problem for weeks/months, until something magical solved it.... until the latest update :(
The only thing I can imagine is that my xorg.conf is a symlink. But this really shouldnt matter...

You were and are running beta driver versions from amd, packed into beta X.org packages, repacked in beta gentoo ebuilds. You are a beta tester :) . You and I are using the oldest hardware the beta version is expected to drive. Amd is hell bent on solving problems with this driver and their latest hardware, the 7000 series. In this scenario, it is very possible that fixing a 7000 series problem could break the 5000 series driver portion and the beta be issued untested for regression on the 5000 series.

As you said, an update broke your system. Not likely a local problem. Is your xorg-server a beta version also?

Well, my opinion is, that every fglrx user is a beta tester...

So, I found out some more details about this problem. Using the drivers from x11 overlay results in "unsupported hardware". Using the portage-tree ones aticonfig is working as expected.
Well, the only thing I need aticonfig for is reading the temerature, which is not so important.

Maybe I should look little deeper to investigate what is the difference between the gentoo and the x11 ebuilds.


Thanks for helping so far.

Any progress on this. I came home from a weekend away to find one of my GPU mining machines not registering work. When I rebooted it, aticonfig stopped seeing the adapters.

Both show up at boot time:

miner1 linux # lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Pitcairn
07:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Pitcairn

but

miner1 ~ # aticonfig --list-adapters
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

Of course, the mining software can't see them either.

Potentially other useful info:

miner1 linux # lsmod
Module Size Used by
fglrx 6740929 0

miner1 linux # emerge -s ati-drivers
Searching...
[ Results for search key : ati-drivers ]

OK, I punted and used ACCEPT_KEYWORDS to emerge the 13.12 drivers and aticonfig is back and working? Weird, since I'm running the 13.9 drivers on my other miners. Also no clue why they stopped working...

I have the exact same problem as Cassey_Jean_Claude and in the exact same setup as the OP, ccube. That is, both drivers are there, lspci -nnk lists them both under "kernel modules", but only "radeon" under "drivers in use". Unlike the OP however, I don't know how to use a script to change them. Aticonfig can't detect the device.

I tried removing everything "radeon" from the kernel and unmerging linux-firmware, after the latter the screen didn't work anymore, so I got it back there. How can I use fglrx instead?

I followed all these guides:

[1] https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg/Hardware_3D_acceleration_guide
[2] https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Fglrx
[3] https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon

There seems to be a somewhat contradictory instruction on kernel config between [2] and [1]+[3], but I assume it's because DRM works for the general case while the FGLRX requires special care.. (maybe for ati using closed source drivers?)

Following guide [1], I've tried adding:
Code:
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-dri.conf
for both "radeon" and "fglrx", but either way it complains about line 3 (EndSection) saying the Device section requires an identifier.. the file is identical to that listing, does it expects a TAB instead of 2 spaces? :o X fails to start with this conf.
(edit: tried changing the xorg.conf directly from radeon to fglrx, the identifier should be card0 it seems (maybe change the guide?), the result is the system crashed! it certainly requires the fglrx driver to be in use)

Finally, I think I can explain the automagic fix the OP reported.. I tried eselecting back the xorg-x11 interface, then glxinfo and glxgears works, after which I "eselect opengl set" the ati option, and it's fooled into working as well! 8O as if it couldn't start the device normally but running the programs open it for further commands? the frame rate even multiplies by 10x! Which gives hope, but is still crappy <40fps, attesting the wrongness of this approach I believe :)

Aticonfig still doesn't detect the device though... :(

Don't have a pitcairn. either side though, 5000 and 8000
Code:
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config
ls -l /lib/firmware/radeon | grep -i pitcairn | wgetpaste

are you wishing to use radeon or fglrx as driver?
