    Here's my xorg.conf, it's pretty basic however, all I did was turn on composite, add XAANoOffscreenPixmaps and the DRI section.

      Ok thanks, guess I'll try this patch too later today.

      I'm using a redhat 2.6.18 kernel though (with lots of redhat patches)

      Did you put anything special in your suspend / acpi / boot config for the video - changing of VT? disabling of framebuffer etc ie anything non-default which wouldn't be in the xorg.conf.

      It's great you have a good config..

        I added the following to suspend2 config for hibernate script:

        Code:
        ProcSetting extra_pages_allowance 0
        RestartServices net.eth0
        along with other configuration, like unmounting the windows partition.

        I add RestartServices becouse the network card wouldn't work after resume otherwise.
        Also I don't use framebuffer console as it only causes problems, like being slow and problems with X.

          It cannot get more frustrating than this I suppose. I spent half the Sunday (in spite of being sick) to get my fglrx running after the upgrade, then thankfully saw this thread, tried everyting today and yet it doesn't work. :-(

          I tried both 0x20a4, 0x71c5 and 0x71d4 and still it doesn't work. Here is all the relavent information. Can anyone PLEASE tell me if I'm missing something.

            FireGLs are not supported by 8.42.3 (natively)

            Where's your

            Code:
            ChipID 0x71D5
            line in your Device section? You need to hack the 8.42.3 driver so that it thinks the FireGL is a Mobility Radeon because otherwise it will fail to initialise. Proper FireGL support won't arrive until 8.43.

            BTW, I don't think you're going to need the Capabilities and KernelModuleParm lines either.

              Please use the better method that doesn't need you to specify any pci id: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6091
              Anyway for FireGL V5200 you should say ChipID 0x71c5, and in the kernel module put the real pci id (0x71c4).

                BTW, I don't think you're going to need the Capabilities and KernelModuleParm lines either.
                Yup, I've missed it. Thanks for pointing it out. Will try it tonight and update the thread.

                  Made both changes. Though I didn't get no screen detected error, the screen went blank. I then unplugged the docking station and the external monitor, just in case, but no use. Then I looked dmesg and saw that I have a "Cannot find Asic ID: 0x71d5" message and this Asic error is also there in xorg log file. I'm posting both dmesg out out and xorg log. Any suggestions ?

                  Note that the logs are too long to post on the thread. I'll have to post it on Google Docs.

                  1.dmesg -

                  http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=ddjtzn4_2pns85s

                  My build options are -
                  Code:
                  ./ati-installer.sh 8.42.3 --buildpkg Fedora/F7
                  I'm at my wit's end. Any help greatly appreciated.

                  Thanks,

                    Once again, use the new patch: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6091
                    Anyway, ChipID should be 0x71C5 and not 0x71D5.

                      Thanks for the reply. Tried the old patch method with 0x71C5, but no use.

                      The new patch method also gave problems. Please see those results here-

                        It looks like FireGL ASICs will now be disabled in 8.43...

                          Can you elaborate -- do you mean that you're saying that perhaps the FireGL chips will be disabled in 8.43 -- ie no FireGL support.

                          I think I'm going to cry :-(

                            lol that is ridiculous.. you figure that 3 months is enough to enable the very cards that the driver is named after.

                              What are we supposed to do then ?? :-(

                              I'm having issues with the patch workaround and my T60p only runs windows now :-(..and I'm running 32 bit Fedora 8 on vmware on a 64 bit AMD box with NIVIDIA card...

                                You're f<beep>ing kidding, right?

                                When is AMD/ATI finally going to release a driver that will officially support (mobility) FireGL cards?

                                When selecting Linux/FireGL on ati.amd.com/support/driver.html, the only version that is being offered is 8.35.5 which was released in March! That's like 8 months ago.

                                I'm currently running a patched 8.42.3 which works with the V5250 in my T60p without any problems the Radeon users don't have also. So… Why disable if it actually works?
