w00t, I only get 2000 fps with my Pentium 4 (2 Ghz), Radeon Mobility 9000 and 512 MB Mem...

Bastard. :D

I followed thousands of howtos, and none worked...

Until I found out to change DefaultDepth to 16 :)

Well, quite easy, lol.

(using 2.6.5-gentoo / radeon mobility 7500)

Maybe this is helpful to someone, cause I wish I found that out
before. (I just read it in another thread here by chance)

Its good to search the forums for answers, because as you say, its impossible to not learn a lot whilst doing it. :)

how i got my radeon mobility M7 (7500) working on compaq evo n800c:

Kernel:rtc, agpgart, intel_agp, radeon, drm.

mobility m7 is not supported by fglrx am i right?

from XF86Config:

Code:
Section "Module"
   Load   "GLcore"
   Load   "bitmap"
   Load   "dbe"
   Load   "ddc"
   Load   "dri"
   Load   "extmod"
   Load   "freetype"
   Load   "glx"
   Load   "int10"
   Load   "record"
   Load   "speedo"
   Load   "type1"
   Load   "vbe"
EndSection

EndSection
Section "Device"

    Identifier  "** ATI Radeon (generic)               [radeon]"
    Driver      "radeon"
    Option   "UseFBDev" "false"
    BusID   "PCI:1:0:0"
    VideoRam    32768
    Option      "AGPFastWrite" "on"
    Option      "AGPMode" "4"
    Option      "MonitorLayout" "LVDS"
    Option      "EnablePageFlip" "true"   
   
EndSection


and opengl-update xfree

I now get 1500 fps in glxgears.

I get about 7800 fps in glxgears with my radeon 9800 pro.
Downgrading the driver from version 3.7.0-r1 to 3.2.8-r1 doubled the frame rate and made UT2004 play nicely as well.
However I can't get the module to work with kernel 2.6.6 so I'll stick with 2.6.5 for now.

By the way there's no way external agp will work for me. I don't even have the agp modules. Nevertheless I get great performance in UT,ET,Q3 ...

Ok, I'm stumped. I'm running 2.6.6-love1, and I have rtc compiled in, nvidia-agp, agpgart compiled as modules, and nvidia-agp, agpgart and fglrx autoloading on boot. I'm reemered ati-drivers and then run opengl-update ati, but it still doesn't work. In my XFree log I get:
Code:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module glx
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist,


Which is then followed up by:
Code:

(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed!                  *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO)             *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available                *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *


I'm assuming the fact that it can't find glx is the root of my problem.

I tried looking for the glx module, but the only one I could find was in /usr/lib/opengl/xfree/extensions/libglx.a. Is there an ATI glx or do I have to symlink that one to somewhere else?

Thanks

I fixed my own problem. I had to symlink the include and extensions folder from /usr/lib/opengl/xfree to /usr/lib/opengl/ati and then restart XFree. It works! I'm getting about 3000 fps in glxgears.

Hello, just posting in case this assists anyone else. I've finally got my system working thanks to the first posting in this thread by Lews_Therin (you may want to check it out, somewhere in the middle of the first page of the thread).

Previously I was getting errors like:
(EE) fglrx(0): cannot init AGP
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xe1ac0000 at 0x401f8000
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

The specific problem in this case was the AGP chipset support, I had compiled in the nforce/nforce2 chipset support (the A7N8X is nforce2), but it was only after compiling in every possible chipset other than for AMD64 that this error went away and everything worked. My guess is the VIA chipset is what I needed (I would be surprised if it was something else), but since I don't know for certain I'll stick with having the whole bunch loaded in (it doesn't add _that_ much kernel size). Anyway, something to think about, particularly if you have an nforce2 board... I have no idea why the nforce2 chipset support wasn't enough.

I haven't read this thread past the first page, so apologies if this is duplicate information.

ok, i'm pretty new to gentoo, and trying to get my 9500pro working, without any joy so far.
My main problem is that although 'emerge ati-drivers' _seems_ to work, it doesn't create the fglrx module to load into the kernel.
Code:
  LD [M]  /var/tmp/portage/ati-drivers-3.2.8-r1/work/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/fglrx.o
/bin/sh: line 1: .tmp_versions/fglrx.mod: Permission denied
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST
/bin/sh: line 1: ./.__modpost.cmd: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [__modpost] Error 1
make: *** [modules] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-gentoo-r1'
 * glx module not built


I'm running gentoo-dev-sources (2.6.5) but had the same problems with the standard 2.4 gentoo-sources, and gentoo-gaming-sources. i'm running it as root, and don't have any trouble emerging anything else.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks ^_^

<edit> i also get the same problem with the 3.9 drivers, using ACCEPT_KEYWORDS='~x86', so i think it's a system problem, rather than specifically the drivers

UPDATE: wahey! chmod 777 on .__modpost.cmd and .tmp_versions in /usr/src/linux/ worked. i guess emerge/portage runs as user 'Portage' rather than as root, so it couldn't write to the files. it now works great :) Hope this helps people who can't get the fglrx module to install.

My first post, the contents of my changlog file as I tried to get
'renderering' working for Rage 128 on a 2.6.3 kernel, kind of a
running narrative.

* Rage 128 XFREE DRM and DRI issues and the 2.6.3 kernel. The
[HOW-TO] Get ATI support in X with 2.6.x kernel is really
talking about ATI chips in the ati-drivers. The Rage 128 is not
one of those chipset. However the HOW-TO was helpful.

* kernel config:
CONFIG_MTRR=y; CONFIG_AGP=m; CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m; CONFIG_DRM=y;
CONFIG_DRM_R128=m

* I didn't put anything into /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.

* After the system comes up and before starting X, lsmod shows
agpgart and intel_agp are loaded. I guess hotplug loaded
them. r128 is NOT loaded.

* /usr/X11R6 /lib/X11/doc/{README.DRI, README.r128} has some
excellant documentation.

* I wanted to VIDEO_CARD="rage128" emerge xfree-drm, but emerge
said it was a 2.6 kernel issue. Hmmm. I had emerged xfree-drm
under the 2.4 kernel. What the heck -- let's give it a try
anyway.

* I have two r128 modules/drivers. One from the kernel build in
/lib/modules/2.6.3-gentoo-r1/kernel/drivers/char/drm/r128.ko and
another one in the Xfree tree from the xfree-drm pkg in
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/r128_dri.so

* Which one gets loaded -- got me, but I wanted X to make the
decision.

* My /var/log/XFree86.0.log said (II) R128(0): Direct rendering
enabled, but when I ran glwinfo it said it wasn't. lsmod showed
some r128 module had been loaded into the kernel space.

* I checked /dev/dri, it was present and changed it to chmod 777
/dev/dri. No dice

* Then I saw a post that said do a opengl-update xfree, that
solved the problem. Before 100FPS after opengl-update 350FPS--
don't laugh. glwinfo showed rendering enabled.

* The suggested options to improve performance were ignored:
(WW) R128(0): Option "AGPFastWrite" is not used
(WW) R128(0): Option "EnableDepthMoves" is not used
(WW) R128(0): Option "EnablePageFlip" is not used
(WW) R128(0): Option "NoBackBuffer" is not used

* My Rage 128 chipset?
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128
RL/VR AGP (prog-if 00 [VGA]) Subsystem: Intel Corp.: Unknown
device 464a Flags: bus master, stepping, 66Mhz, medium devsel,
latency 64, IRQ 11 Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)
[size=64M] I/O ports at d800 [size=256] Memory at ff9fc000
(32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Expansion ROM at ff9c0000
[disabled] [size=128K] Capabilities: [50] AGP version 2.0
Capabilities: [5c] Power Management version 1

* Re-compile the kernel (2.6.3) w/o selecting CONFIG_DRM_128, i.e.
CONFIG_AGP=m, CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m, CONFIG_DRM=y. I suspect the
things won't work since the error when I tried to emerge
xfree-drm said 'use the DRM in the kernel'.

* Well, that was a waste of time. X log said it failed to load
kernel module r128. Ran opengl-update xfree and restarted
X. Same thing. Set CONFIG_DRM_128=m, re-built kernel and
rendering worked.

* Note: revisit this issue when xfree-drm can be emerged into a
2.6.mumble kernel.

Hi, I tried the how-to walkthrough on the first page. The only difference is now fglrx starts up now, which it failed to do before. My original problem was I was trying to play americas army and got this error:

Code:

jaydawg@jay jaydawg $ armyops
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


History:

Exiting due to error

I followed this How-to but still to no avail I can't get it to work, and after much searching on the rest of the forum which ends up with no real help. When I run glxgears I get about 90 fps and when I run glxinfo I get:
Code:

jaydawg@jay / $ glxinfo

    GL_EXT_texture_lod_bias
glu version: 1.3
glu extensions:
    GLU_EXT_nurbs_tessellator, GLU_EXT_object_space_tess


which leads me to believe that I am still using software rendering or whatever. I used the fglrxconfig thinger to configure my x setting.
One thing I'm wondering though is that the file is saves as XF86config-4, should I change that to xorg.conf since I"m using xorg?

But after searching the forums and stuff I still can't fix my problem. Anyone have any other solutions? My specs are:

    Xorg-X11 version 6.7.0
    ATI Mobility Radeon 9200
    2.6.6-r1 kernel

Sorry for the long post but any help would be greatly appreciated since I can't even use good screen savers any of the good stuff. Thanks.

Can someone enlighten me on this one that why it makes a huge fps differences that I tested the fps on three different ati desktop modes, and I get some very odd results.

tested environment: 1280x1024, 24bits

single mode: 75 fps
dual-desktop mode: 4400 fps
big desktop mode: 75 fps

why is it way off in dual-desktop mode, and I thought in single mode it should have some better frames than those other two. :(

As I read thru the posts, most of you have at least higher than 600 fps (600~ 5000 fps). but why I only got 75 fps in single mode and big desktop mode, as I use big desktop mode daily. :(

I have enabled hardware acceleration too, still got no clue why can't it be at least higher than 500 fps.

current kernel spec: gentoo-dev-source 2.6.5-r1
graphic card: ATI 9800 Pro 128MB
cpu: AMD 1.4ghz thunderbird
ram: pc2700 512 MB

You might have vertical sync enabled - check the value of the "Capabilities" option in your config file. If the 3rd digit from the right is an "8", then it means v-sync is enabled (ie your framerate will never be higher than the vertical refresh rate of your monitor). To disable it, change the "8" to a "0" and restart X. Also, I think some of the dual monitor modes disable 3D acceleration, but I only ever use single head so I don't remember exactly which ones.

thanks for the reply. :)

don't really get it though, cuz I've been hearing some conflict information about v-sync to enable/ not to enable, some say for better performance, it's needed to enable?

and also I have this agpmode set to 8 too,
Code:

    Option "AGPMode" "8"

will kernel support my agp mode at 8x, and help some performance gain ? I know my ati 9800 pro is capatiable at 8x, and my motherboard supports it too.

As I said before, v-sync limits the framerate of applications to the vertical refresh rate of the monitor. If you like having a high FPS count, you might want to disable it, although since the monitor can't update quickly enough to show them all properly it's kind of redundant. The advantage it offers is to reduce "tearing" during gameplay that occurs when a frame is drawn partway through a vertical refresh, so that two different frames are on screen at the same time.

If you check your XFree log carefully, you should see that that option is ignored by the fglrx driver. It sets the AGP mode automatically (have a look at your "dmesg" output), and will use AGP 8x if the hardware supports it. The performance gain of AGP 8x over 4x is negligible.

Question about tv-out and movies. When i try to watch movies all i get is a blue box on the tv with the movie playing on the monitor.. i have an ati 9000 128 (saphire) using the up todate ati drivers X.org everything seems to work great execpt the movies.

either totem or gxine do not show the movie on the tv.. just a big box.

any ideas?

Ok, I'm stuck. modprobe fglrx gives:
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.7-gentoo-r1/video/fglrx.ko): No such device

I have the modules rtc, agpgart and amd64_agp loaded. Same error with via_agp and radeon loaded as well.

I have a 9550 (works like a 9600), an Asus K8V motherboard and an Athlon64 CPU. I'm running it in 32-bit mode though. AMD64+ATI 3D isn't possible yet I think.

Edit: I solved the problem. Solution here.

which i think has the drivers for my video card:
Code:
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R250 Lf [Radeon Mobility 9000 M9] (rev 01)


i followed the dirrections to the extent of copying the XF86Config file dirrectly.

ps. do i need 'radeon' drivers?

what's wrong?
