  • catalyst 8.10+ not working with tv-out

    Hi,
    Starting from catalyst 8.10, I can't get the tv-out working (with both X1.4 and 1.5).. I just get a black screen

    Here is the log:

    suggestions?

    P.S. I have an ati R690G chipset based (ASUS VM-2A-HDMI)

      ok, I found that fglrx module was not loaded.

      I tried to rebuild kernel, and at depmod, I get:

      Code:
        DEPMOD  2.6.28-rc6
      WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.28-rc6/video/fglrx.ko needs unknown symbol KCL_MEM_MTRR_AddRegionWc
      WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.28-rc6/video/fglrx.ko needs unknown symbol KCL_SYSINFO_OsVersionString
      WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.28-rc6/video/fglrx.ko needs unknown symbol KCL_MEM_Alloc
      ...
      ...
      Could be a 2.6.28 problem? Should I have to downgrade the kernel?

        That looks like a kernel compatibility issue. I recommend not using development kernels with fglrx, because there's no guarantee of binary compatibility between kernel releases, and AMD only compiles their driver against a new kernel every few months.

          As I understand it fglrx consists of the actual binary driver and a glue layer that you compile for your kernel. So I don't see how this could be a case of binary incompatibility. I have no problem whatsoever with catalyst 8.12 on 2.6.28-rc8.

            The kernel can be used - one of the kernel updates which did NOT require driver changes. Your kernel config must be just wrong. Btw rc9 is out

              ok,
              I recompiled the kernel and catalyst, and I returned to the 8.10/11 error..
              Here is the updated log:

                here is the xorg.conf

                http://rafb.net/p/SyUo8B22.html

                looking at a catalyst 8.9 log:

                http://rafb.net/p/pyrUjH29.html

                the AUDITS errors happen when X should run the input devices...
                so can it be a wrong input section configuration?

                  well, I've made some more testing.
                  I noticed that xorg has modified automatically my xorg.conf to:

                  http://rafb.net/p/26HoVb28.html

                  I rebooted many times and then X started working well for some time, but at some point (?) it returned back to the previous situation, with this log:

                  http://rafb.net/p/sx3LvU92.html

                  Also, if I try to start gdm, "seems" like X tries to change resolution (or maybe restart itself) 3 times (I can see "horizontal lines").

                    I found that deleting the /etc/ati/amdpcsdb solved the problem,
                    but sometimes (very often) the black screen returns and I have to delete again the file... and reconfigure all the settings with amdcccle
                    Is there a solution?
