  • Can ati 9.1 works on kernel 2.6.29-rc*

    I use the fedora 10 ,and ati 8.12-9.1 can works on kernel 2.6.28-* with libdrm-2.4.0-0.11.fc9.i386,but on kernel 2.6.29-rc* ait driver can`t works anyway .

    I have the error , have patch for ati 9.1 on kernel 2.6.29-rc*?

    Won't work, cause the whole ACPI-Code of the fglrx glue layer has to be reworked since most of the kernel ACPI-Code was made private to the kernel.

          AMD's official stance on supporting unreleased kernels (kernels still on RCs) is that they don't. And since fglrx has its own release schedule, you may have to wait even more (1-2 months) before official support. Sucks, I know, but that's how it is.

            Semi-working patch

            This is pretty hacked together, but http://test.enerecimis.com/2.6.29.patch gives 3d on kernel 2.6.29-rc5-git2.

            Testing with glxgears and WoW doesn't show any problems, and suspend still works with ACPI largely ripped out.

            The error log slowly accumulates errors like
            [fglrx:firegl_find_any_map] *ERROR* Invalid map handle!<3>[fglrx:drm_vm_open] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0x7f800cc3c000,handle:0xee000000
            [fglrx:firegl_find_any_map] *ERROR* Invalid map handle!<3>[fglrx:drm_vm_close] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0x7f800cc3c000,handle:0xee000000
            but they seem to be harmless.

              working patch

              private acpi only means, that the acpica.org files aren't reachable by any driver now.

              all what amd has to do is, include the files themself ...
              in a way simmiliar to the patch

              also includes the fixes from the post before, thanks!

              patch is here -- USE AT YOUR OWN RISK:
              (removed, see next post)
              it compiles, but it is stil untested

                    Any news with this?

                    I've just compiled kernel 2.6.29.3 (slackware 12.2) and the patch also seems to compile. But there's some manual work to do, unless I did something wrong somewhere. This is how the patching looks like:

                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file Makefile
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file acpica-acconfig.h
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file acpica-aclocal.h
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file acpica-acobject.h
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file firegl_public.c
                    Hunk #1 succeeded at 1441 (offset 39 lines).
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file firegl_public.h
                    Hunk #1 succeeded at 593 (offset 4 lines).
                    (Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
                    patching file kcl_acpi.c
                    patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
                    It looks like the patch fails, but on a make, compilation succeed! After that I have to move the mod to the right place myself, since installing fails. But it's there, at least. Afterwards I can run dmesg and see this:

                    fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.

                    But, there's still some problem for me, since I can't find any supported adapter...

                    aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
                    Maybe after a reboot, since I have compiled more support for ATI into the kernel after this module install...

                        Tried to compile the NEW catalyst driver today (9.5) and suddenly the old errors disappeared:

                        fglrxinfo

                        OpenGL version string: 2.1.8664
                        But still, this annoys me!
