      Requesting script and patches to install ati driver on hardy kernel

      Hi Kano,

      Just came across this post about a script you had that would possibly install the ati 8.40.4 driver on a 2.6.24 kernel. I wasnt able to find the script anywhere. Would it be possible for you to email me the script and patches? Also just curious, but has anybody tried the script etc on a 2.6.25 kernel? Thank you!

        use it like:

        sudo sh install-fglrx-debian.sh -v 8.40.4

        (or -v 8.39.4) on vt1 (ctrl-alt-f1).

          Instead of optimizing the driver to death, shouldn't fglrx now be set into a render fixing status?

          Kano, there's a benchmark you use to check whether opengl is implements all these different extensions correctly. Why doesn't the fglrx team focus on getting all extensions working correctly? I'm no expert but I'm sure that would have many unexpected rendering fixes across the board, especially for wine which depends on a perfect opengl implementation to convert directx to ogl.

            Yes, I use gl2benchmark, can be easyly compiled against openscenegraph 2.2 and newer in version 0.3.2 and can be used with openscenegraph 1.2 in version 0.1.2.

            For etch I backported OSG 2.4.0 and gl2benchmark 0.3.2 here:

            deb http://kanotix.com/files/fix/openscenegraph-2.4.0 ./
            deb-src http://kanotix.com/files/fix/openscenegraph-2.4.0 ./

            For ubuntu hardy you can use this repository (has a slightly older gl2benchmark, but the rendering problems in test 3+4 are the same):

            deb http://kanotix.com/files/fix/gl2benchmark.lenny ./
            deb-src http://kanotix.com/files/fix/gl2benchmark.lenny ./

            If needed I can precompile it for differnt Debian/Ubuntu distros, but it should be enough to use pbuilder on the latest source for those to support newer distros.

              Please help with ati script

              Hi Kano,\

              Thank you for the script. Guess I'm still to new. From my desktop I have both the script and the ati installer /home/Desktop install-fglrx-debian.sh ati-driver-installer-8.40.4-x86.x86_64.run.

              Can you give me the exact syntax of how I would do this using your script? Also does the script include the patch? Ive always had to be in the source directory to patch things, so if the script includes the patch im not sure how to do that.

              Thank you!

                Has anybody tried this "solution"?

                http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12929#c52

                some people in that thread said it works ;-)

                (me, personally, not on PC where I have linux installed.. so, just wondering if there is any chance to run some games when I back...)

                ... Maybe, any comments from ATI what this could be (wine team says all the time it is fgrlx driver's problem.. But.. maybe the bug in the GL commands themselves (after translation by wine's d3d->OGL engine)?

                  Yeah, that solution worked for me. I have pretty rubbish framerates in games though, although that might just be my computer

                    @firefly

                    you press ctrl-alt-f1, then login as your standard user and execute it:

                    sudo sh install-fglrx-debian.sh -v 8.40.4

                    every patch is included. 8.40.4 works with 2.6.24 with the integrated patches, lowest driver which will work with that kernel is 8.39.4. If you need older ones you need an older kernel (like 2.6.22 -> gutsy).

                        It won't be fixed from Wine's side in the near future at all probably:
                        ------- Comment #56 From Roderick Colenbrander 2008-06-26 15:08:25 -------
                        Wine is doing some evil memory stuff. In short at wine startup we reserve all
                        virtual memory. Dlls and apps need to be loaded in specific parts. Likely there
                        isn't enough virtual memory left for ATI's driver. Alexandre suggested that we
                        might need to do very evil stuff (e.g. override mmap calls made by the driver)
                        in order to fix it. I think a fix is a long time away, so for now revert that
                        patch as I don't think it will be reverted. Note that it might not work for
                        others at all.
                        So either the ATI developers fix this if they can or this problem is very unlikely to be gone in the next months.

                        Also, I'm following the bug report 13335 in Wine bugzilla since the early beginnings of that report, and IIRC there have now been around 7 different commits that are supposed to fix the problem. However, none of them actually worked for me, so I stopped trying after the 4th one ;-)

                          still having problems installing fglrx driver

                          Hi Kano,

                          I got the script to run and everything went well, compiled drivers etc. Then it completed, and went back to the prompt and then it tried to boot back into gnome but it wont load the fglrx drivers, and only mesa it appears. stuck in low resolution. after getting into gnome desktop still in mesa drivers I checked xorg.conf and fglrx was listed. I still went ahead and tried an aticonfig --initial but nothing.

                          Is there some step im missing after the script finishes? Was there some other comand I needed to do while still in X when doing the control alt F1?

                          Thanks,

                          Firefly

                            Just wondering wether anything has got better for anyone here. For me, the problem still exists in 8.7...
                            This probably has something to do with AGP cards... The QA for these cards has always been a bit "uncomplete" as AMD seems to need way too much time to recognize these kinds of problems...
                            I also wonder what influence the available RAM has on this problem (I think it only applies to low RAM sizes like 512 MB), so for any future reports please include:
                            RAM size
                            video card model, AGP<->PCI-E, VRAM, GART SIZE
                            etc...

                            I'm really curious how this problem came through QA... The end users have been complaining about the bad Wine support for such a long time now, but AMD still doesn't seem to recognize such a dramatic bug?
                            bridgman, do you occasionally have some information about that?

                              I see that infamous "WINE bug" everywhere. I do use WINE a lot and never had any problem. Yesterday instaled 8.7 and run wine normaly.

                              System Specs:
                              ATI X1400 256Mb,
                              Core 2 Duo @ 1800Mhz
                              4Gb Ram
