  • Catalyst 7.12 - PreInitDAL failed

    I thought I'd repost here as my original post will get lost in the 7.12 thread.

    I can't get Catalyst 7.12 working at all. When I type startx I get a black screen, I can switch back to a console but X has crashed with error message:

    Code:
    (II) fglrx(0): Monitor name: HP w22

    I installed 7.12 on Gentoo x86 using a modified 8.433 ebuild. I'm using X.org 7.3, kernel 2.6.23, ATI Radeon x1950 Pro AGP and an HP w22 LCD with native resolution 1680 x 1050.

    I've tried using X -configure to produce a new xorg.conf. I tried adding mode lines for 1280x1024. I'm not using a framebuffer for the console.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I am also getting this... I have a X800 AGP (AIW XT). Does this have to do with AGP? This has happened to me before with the 8.40 driver. I type startx and the screen turns off and the card has no video output. I need to press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and blindly cause a reboot. I am back on the 7-11 build which doesn't have this problem.

      Did you check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log for the same error?

        Hi! I'm new at the forum... I'm having the same problem.

        OS = Gentoo Linux for AMD64
        GPU = ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO (Gigabyte)
        Driver = Catalyst 7.11 / Catalyst 7.12

        Your display is plugged into vga or dvi output?

        My videocard in plugged into a pci express port. Here is my xorg.conf

        Thanks for you help...

            Ack, someone with a HD2400pro AGP is having the same problem in the thread:

              Michael, can't ATI use a few of us AGP owners in the closed BETA? It doesn't appear to be an obscure problem again.

                I don't know the numbers, but I suspect that AGP owners are under-represented in the beta group. I'll ask Matthew and see what he says.

                  I do not think this is AGP-specific, because I get the same error with the x1400 PCIe on my Lenovo Z61m when using an external (analog connected) 1680x1050 LCD.

                  When I unplug the external LCD X starts without errors, but with the known problem using 1280x1024 on the internal 1680x1050 panel.

                    Hi,

                    I had the very same problem ("PreInitDAL failed", after EDID data), with my new Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 (PCI-Express).

                    I was using uvesafb. After seeing http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ATI_Dri...InitDAL_failed, I deactivated it (at boot... no need to remove it from the kernel). It now works without problem (as per `glxinfo` and `glxgears`).

                    Gentoo-wiki links to http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=509, which should have been solved last year. I guess a similar regression happened.

                    I hope this can be fixed again, so I can use my framebuffer


                    Thanks in advance,


                    Bye.

                      Well, I don't think that deactivating the framebuffer will solve the problem [for all]... I tried that too (vesafb), but I wasn't lucky... It continued without working...

                      Snake, that's true, its not AGP-specific, my HD2400 is for pcie...

                      I'll add the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log later, please tell me if it is necessary to post any other files...

                      Thanks in advance for all your help...

                        I'm using an external LCD monitor through a DVI connector, I can't try any other monitors.

                        An ebuild for 7.12 has appeared in the untested tree of Gentoo's portage, I tried it but have the same error.

                          I've got no framebuffer support in kernel, so I assume this is yet another side effect of the somehow broken EDID data handling that also makes it impossible to use 1680x1050 with 7.12 on my hardware.

                          Anyways, previous driver versions seemed to support 1680x1050 only because this resolution was explicitly reported by EDID. I was never able to get any other widescreen resolution like 1440x900 with fglrx.

                            Well it is a bit stupid to release a driver without proper edid support together with broken modeline support. For nvidia edid does not always work too, but there are override options and modelines do work if needed...
