  • fglrx 9.4 causes Xorg crash

    Hello folks,

    Recently (today) upgraded Xorg to the latest in Debian/Sid (7.4/1.6.1 i believe), and upgraded also the fglrx driver to 9.4. Unfortunately, now, Xorg won't start anymore. If started, I see my screen flicker once, then stay eternally black. SSH works, I can get on the box. Here's what's in my dmesg:

    Anyone any idea what I can do to try to fix this?

    Recent radeonhd git pull won't compile currently against Xorg 1.6, so I'm fsck'ed there too.

    I've managed to enter my desktop putting Option "noDRI" "true" in Device section, but performance is very low meybe someone has solution???

        thats due to the used kernel 2.6.29 patch, with 2.6.28 kernel there are no errors, the xserver does not matter.

          uh ok for Linux Noobs what would I need to do?

            You have got a different issue. The kernel is definitely no problem with U 9.04, as you only can use the default or the 9-4 fglrx driver you have to wait for next release. With another distro, for example mine, you could try older fglrx drivers too.

              I am probably going to stick with Fedora 11 which is due in 12 days...
              Any ideas on how not to screw up my system but have 3d with my 4870x2?

                A distro with Xserver 1.6 will not allow you to use older drivers. You need Xserver 1.5 or older (like Lenny with 1.4.2) to try older drivers or a newer driver.

                  I want to try the new stuff so old drivers or distros are irrelevant...
