  • Oops, wrong thread.

    Anyway, two questions for bridgman:

    1. Will fglrx RDR use the DRI2 and GEM/TTM infrastructure or will it take nvidia's route and rip everything out?

    2. Can we expect OpenCL on Linux?

        ow, just deleted my message because I found myself being unconstructive... but since you already replied on my post:

        They opensourced it... THINK about this... read back your posts... stupid right?

          We were planning to use DRI2, but as I understand it current thinking is to bypass it and do our own implementation. We already have a good memory manager and do not plan to replace that with GEM/TTM.

          I don't know for sure but I expect so. Linux is an important part of our Stream solutions and we expect OpenCL to become a core part of Stream.

          • There is no support for a1 surfaces in the open drivers & EXA, and seemingly won't be for months. Does frglx support it?

              If we are already at it, are you planning to enable KMS in fglrx in the same way or will that remain an OSS-only feature?

                I probably don't need to say this, but "boot to black screen" is not a bug, just perhaps the most common symptom that *something* (probably specific to a distro release and hardware configuration) has gone wrong.
                i have the black screen to on a hd4350 with the 8.12 and 9.1 and 9.2beta only 8.11 works (but need 1-3 times to boot right)...

                newest debian sid radeon works like vesa

                "BlackScreen" by booting the system. only init 3 mode boots right.

                my system is :

                ass@ass:~$ infobash -v3

                • Yeah, that makes sense. AFAIK we are currently supporting 8.10 but not the prerelease 9.04 versions yet. For pre-release distros you are probably better off pulling the latest open source drivers.

                    i dont use 9.04... i use debian5/sid/sidux---

                    on debian kernel 2.6.26 = blackscreen

                    on kanos 2.6.28 = blackscreen

                    ...

                    • OK, maybe I'm confused. Your post said a Kubuntu 9.04 backport, what am I missing ?
