    Yes, I ran depmod -a and rebooted. Maybe it's just an Ubuntu thing... and someone else knows what's wrong. Well, it's too late now (11.30pm) to look into the issue.

      Yep, can confirm this issue too on my HD3300 IGP using todays (09.02.2009) git.

      Hope this bug gets squashed next if the git gets updated by the devs as massive as the last few days.

        Since I see the people here use xserver 1.5.3., I wanted to ask if any of the new code supports xserver 1.6. yet? With HD3200 on Jaunty I get horrible performance with both radeon and radeonhd. Is this code only useable right now with the old xserver?

          I have seen the code used on very recent X servers, so it's probably OK to run with Jaunty. In general the latest open source driver code tends to track the latest X server code since the two evolve together.

          Remember that you will need the 6xx-7xx support branches for both DRM and the X driver (radeonhd or ati).

            I use the xserver 1.6 included in Jaunty. It runs fast for me.

              I run Ubuntu too. For some reason, Ubuntu wouldn't autoload the compiled drm module. I went into the folder where I copied it and insmod'd it. Restarted X, and xvinfo works. -vo xv in mplayer works like a charm, so I added it into /etc/modules (or does anyone know how to get Ubuntu to accept it?). I get somewhat teary video with radeonhd now, so I think I'm going to test the 6xx/7xx branch in radeon too. But it's quite blazingly fast.

              So, I can confirm this is working for me on HD3200 / Jaunty / latest xserver as of 11.02.09.

              P.S. bridgman: are the steps to get radeon to work with 6xx/7xx hardware basically the same?

                I'm referring to this commit, I was pointed to it by someone in chat. I couldn't find it in the radeonhd tree, does anyone know if it's going to be ported there too?

                  It is highly unlikely that you need to load the drm module on your own as it is a depend of the radeon module. If that is not autoloaded by the radeon driver, then it is an error of that driver. It does not load of course when a fglrx module was loaded.

                    With todays drm source swichting between X and VT no longer poses a problem! Finally got radeonhd & XV working flawlessly - JAY Thanks to all for your help!

                      The drm_pciids.txt file has the Mobility HD3400 lines in the wrong order in the file, so the cards are not recognized. Moving them to the proper location makes them work:

                      Note: I haven't gotten any further than loading drm.ko and radeon.ko yet, dunno if the radeonhd driver will actually work for me. I just finally see the drm init in dmesg now.

                        The order doesn't matter. The drm doesn't actually get initialized until X loads.

                          Yeah, finally it works now. But I've still some kind of screen corruption. For example, there is something like a horizontal dash on top of the cursor. It isn't visible on the screenshots cause no cursor is shown there. Will try if I can take a screenshot, where this is visible.

                            Does the corruption leave "trails" or is it only visible in the cursor's current location ?

                              With more then one tab in konqueror it is visible too:

                              You can see it in the tab-bar.

                              Oh, its much more worse:

                                Make sure you're using the latest drm bits as well.
