  • self compiled 8.31.5 doesn't work on Ubuntu/edgy

    Hello all,

    I normally self compile fglrx driver on my system wich actually is Ubuntu/Edgy, I've done it several times with make-kpkg. The compilation actually works, then I

    Code:
    dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.31.5-1_i386.deb
    dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-2.6.18.1-z2_8.31.5-1+1_i386.deb
    but then when I reboot, X doens't load and

    Code:
    matteo@burnt:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old | grep EE
    Current Operating System: Linux burnt 2.6.18.1-z2 #1 PREEMPT Thu Nov 2 22:39:03 CET 2006 i686
            (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
    (EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1)
    (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available.
    what't the problem? Can you help me? 8.30.3 works pretty well.

    Thanks,
    Matteo

    The packaging script for 8.31.5 could be broken, so on 8.30.3 it builds and runs fine for Ubuntu?

        What method do you use to self compile?

          here is the method, kernel and fglrx version are old ones but the method is still the same

          Code:
          # compile and install your own kernel
          cd ~
          mkdir ati
          cd ati
          # download the latest ati installer
          wget https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-i386.run
          chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-i386.run
          LANG=C LC_ALL=C ./ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/dapper
          # install the source (tar.bz2 file will be placed in /usr/src)
          sudo dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-source_8.23.7-1_i386.deb
          cd /usr/src
          # untar fglrx.tar.bz2 (will be unzipped in /usr/src/modules/fglrx)
          sudo tar xvf fglrx.tar.bz2
          # make sure that /usr/src/linux point to the right kernel
          cd /usr/src/linux
          # substitute '-z2' with your own, debs will be placed in /usr/src
          sudo make-kpkg --append-to-version=-z2 modules_image
          cd /usr/src
          # install the kernel module and xorg driver
          sudo dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-2.6.16-mm2-z2_8.27.10-1+10.00.Custom_i386.deb
          sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.27.10-1_i386.deb
          thanks for your help

            Solved

            now it works

            Code:
            matteo@burnt:~$ fglrxinfo 
            display: :0.0  screen: 0
            OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
            OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X700 Generic
            OpenGL version string: 2.0.6174 (8.31.5)
            I guess I was doing './ati-blabla --buildpkg=Ubuntu/dapper' instead of './ati-blabla --buildpkg=Ubuntu/edgy'

            Thank you anyway

              8.31.5 installs just fine if you do as in http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide

              Myself when I install a new driver, I do a

              sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

              select fglrx, reconfigure and then

              sudo -i
              cd /etc/X11/
              aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf (or aticonfig --initial=dual-head --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf)

              This driver also suffers from the video cropping bug on tv-out since the 8.20 release. http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=309
