  • Need some help with my new 5450 card

    Hi

    I'm having two issues with this new card which I hope anyone can help me with.

    First, I can't properly play any 3D game because of the problem I have reported here: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1932. Does anyone else have this issue and/or know a workaround for it?

    Secondly, I can't get XvBA to work... could anyone help me with that?

    $ vainfo
    libva: libva version 0.31.1-sds1
    Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
    libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
    libva: Trying to open /usr/lib64/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so
    xvba_video: XVBA_CreateContext(): status 11
    libva error: /usr/lib64/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so init failed
    libva: va_openDriver() returns -1
    vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

    I'm on Fedora 13 x86_64.

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    I solved all my issues by installing the driver from the AMD web-site instead of using RPM-Fusion's driver :-)

      Ugh... I don't know what I did but the flickering is back... whole screen starts to flicker with mess whenever a fullscreen OGL app is launched. Windowed apps and, strangely, compiz work fine. Does anyone know what is going on with my system?

        You can try another port for your vga adapter. Some ati cards flicker on one port only.

            It depends on the application, OS and configuration. Some random thoughts:
            - Check vsync is "always on" in AMD CCCLE.
            - If you have a compositor enabled (compiz), there could be some flickering left
            - Tear-free OpenGL rendering is only available through a single display
            - If you use XBMC and VA-API, there is a bug whereby a VA surface is flagged as "free" too early whereas it is used later when being transfered to an OpenGL texture.

                Yes, it works with MPlayer, I only use that beyond some other proprietary stuff. If it doesn't for you, you will have to provide more information and follow the other thread...

                  I've managed to fix it. After messing in CCC (thanks for the tip, gbeauche) I noticed it had changed my xorg.conf. (I didn't think it would do that. Yes, I may be a tad ignorant.) When I commented out these lines:

                  #Section "ServerLayout"
                  # Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
                  # Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
                  #EndSection

                  and

                  #Section "Screen"
                  # Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
                  # Device "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
                  # Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
                  # DefaultDepth 24
                  # SubSection "Display"
                  # Viewport 0 0
                  # Depth 24
                  # EndSubSection
                  #EndSection

                  the flickering went away. Yay!

                  XvBA also works perfectly for me (edit: that's in VLC, I've never used mplayer) - no tearing at all, except when making a screenshot of it - but who cares about that. Though the display does turn black for exactly one second after starting a video (yes, my card does indeed really like to flicker, one way or another :P), the quality is perfect and I can live with the one-time one-second flicker.

                    OK, I've located the problem, and it's bad. It's vsync. When I turn it on in CCC, the flickering starts occurring. It goes away when I turn it off.

                    So I can either watch video (=vsync on) or play games (=vsync off). Why can't I do both?

                      i can confirm the flickering on ubuntu 10.10 and catalyst 10.10 with flash videos at fullscreen the flickering is like fat wite stripes on the screen flickers into the vid.

                        I have also problems with vainfo

                        libva: libva version 0.31.1
                        Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
                        libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0

                        xvba_video: XVBA_CreateContext(): status 11
                        libva error: /usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so init failed
                        libva: va_openDriver() returns -1
                        vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

                        Using 10.11 with 6850. I copied all drivers by hand. Firstly, 32 bit drivers installed. I remove them and copied 64x one by hand from ati driver package (from site), But it still don't working.
                        I build valib from repo too but doesn't helps.
                        Is there any debug message that I can understand whats going on? Or Is it due UVD3 at 6850? (Catalyst 10.11 doesn't support 6850's officially.)

                          I'm not sure if xvba-video already supports UVD3 features or not (could you answer it gbeauche?), but that might be your problem with VAAPI/xvba-video in your HD6850...

                          Cheers

                            Now tested with internal 3300 graphics using same fglrx driver 10.11.
                            Same result... So it's not related with UVD3 for me.
                            Do you know any debug enable definition? like XVBA_DEBUG=1 or VAAPI_DEBUG=1...
                            I think I saw similar thing before on some forum but cannot find&remember it now. THanks

                              Ok fixed by reinstalling ATI driver than aticonfig --initial for 3300.
                              Than switched 6850. It looks working on it too.
                              I think aticonfig --initial make more than configuring xorg.conf.
                              Do you know what it makes extra?
                              Thanks.
