PostPosted: Tue Apr 26, 2005 3:43 am    Post subject: ATI Drivers dont load Reply with quote

I just installed gentoo 2005 from stage1 and I got X, gnome and the ati drivers compiled but when I load X the fglrx will not load but I still get into Xwindows just have no direct rendering

Error:
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.11-gentoo-r6/video/fglrx.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

I have tried ati-drivers 8.8.25-r3 and 8.10.19 with the same error

Kernel info:

Check your syslog after modprobe'ing the fglrx driver.

# dmesg

It should show something related to gcc-3.3 *or* gcc-3.4

You may need to switch your compiler (with gcc-config) to either 3.3 or 3.4, depending on your setup.

i've also got a problem with my ati-drivers.

i use 2.6.12-rc2-mm3

and modprobe says:

Code:

modprobe fglrx
FATAL: Module fglrx not found.


i used this tutorial (german):

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-282983.html

before it worked with my old kernel (2.6.11-r2)
any suggestions?

If you've upgraded your kernel you'll have to re-emerge ati-drivers also.

it says gcc 3.3.5-20050130

so do I need to change it to a lower gcc?


here is what dmesg says

You did not read nopsled's post carefully ... nopsled said if you have changed your kernel, then you need to re-emerge the ati-drivers -- which is the correct thing to do if you have upgraded your kernel.

digitalexpl0it - I'm thinking your problem is you compiled the ati-drivers with a different version of gcc than you compiled your kernel with. If you used 3.3, then try re-emerging after you use gcc-config to switch to gcc-3.4, or vice-versa. Worst case, you can just re-emerge with gcc-3.3, and if still gives 'invalid module format' then try it with gcc-3.4.

Try it and let us know. And when I say try it with gcc-3.4, that doesn't mean emerge gcc-3.4 if you don't have it already emerged :) If you haven't emerged slotted gcc versions, then you'll need a different solution than the one I'm thinking of.

R4miu5 - Check /lib/modules/2.6.12-rc2-mm3/video
You should see fglrx.ko. If not, then you need to re-emerge ati-drivers. If you already did, you should check the /usr/src/linux symlink and see if it points to /usr/src/2.6.12-rc2-mm3. I'm not sure, but I think the build checks that to see which kernel version to build/link against.

thx for answer, but i already tried both.

there is no! module in /lib/modules/2.6.12-rc2-mm3/video
symlink is correct, and i recompiled ati-drivers about 10 times now :?

Did you add support for agpgart in the kernel? -- had to ask, as you never know (yes I saw it was listed on the German howto), which brings me to asking if you added it as a module as shown in the howto? If so, see if you even have the agpgart module loaded with lsmod ... if not, try modprobe agpgart, afterwards trying again with X. ... if this turns out to be the case, be sure to add agpgart to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.

Code:
be sure to add agpgart to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.


it is added:

Code:
cat /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
# For example:
# 3c59x
fglrx
agpgart


modprobe agpgart works

1. You should load fglrx after the kernel AGP modules if you're using the kernels AGP support.
2. On 2.6 kernels, you need to load two AGP modules; agpgart and via-agp or intel-agp or nvidia-agp etc (the second one depends on the type of motherboard you have).
3. I would be very surprised if the ATI driver compiled successfully against the kernel you're using. Check the output of the ebuild carefully - it doesn't actually fail if the driver module isn't compiled. Unless you really need to be running the latest mm-sources, an older version will be more likely to work with the driver.

ok ill try the agpart, thing is I did compile the kernel 3 times with the same gcc version. The last time I just used genkernel -udev all

so I guess agpart is a module so ill have to load that. I always ompile the kernel manually and take everything out except what I need, but since this was a clean install I wanted to get everything done first then go back and redo the kernel

ok I recompiled the kernel manually and I found agpart and dri was not in the kernel at all, I added them as a module then compiled now it works, why when you do a "genkernel --udev all" it doesnt compile agpart or dri?

You do not need to activate drm in the kernel. If you did, it would have to be as modules, but then when you emerge ati-drivers, the kernel's modules would get overwritten by those in ati-drivers.

I've got the same problem. AGP support is compiled in as a module, and drm is off. This used to work with my old kernel. Recompiled the driver, checked the symlink, everything seems to be in order, but still no drm module is being built. Output is the same as above.

What is happening is that the driver is failing to compile because your kernel is new and/or heavily patched. It can't be expected to work with the huge variety of different kernels out there, or to keep up with the latest patchsets. If you like to run kernels that are newly released or have been heavily patched, you need to be ready for this type of thing to happen, because it's not uncommon. The driver necessarily depends on some functions and data structures in the kernel. The kernel you're using has changed or removed these, so attempting to compile the driver produces errors because it can't find them, and you end up without a kernel module. I really wish the ebuild would abort if the kernel module fails to compile, because it would emphasise that there's a problem, and I see posts like these all the time.

Anyway, you have two options:
1. Find a patch for the driver that updates it to compile against newer kernels (check the forums here, the Linux forum at Rage3D.com, and Google)
2. Use an older / less patched kernel.
