  • Any openGL support for r6xx_r7xx branch driver?

    Hello,
    I managed to install r6xx_r7xx branch and it worked for the first time without underscan for my hdmi-connected Philips TV. Fglrx was unbearable if it comes to resolution settings - it never remembered previously chosen resolution/freq and had to reset them at every boot (always 1280/1024 and only 30Hz and below worked without underscan using xrandr which is also bizarre). Playing with xconf.org and /etc/ati dir did not help much.

    On the other hand I removed libGL.so.2 library while cleaning up after fglrx 9.1 and it seems there is indeed no openGl support even for r6xx-r7xx-branch driver? I do not have any deeper knowledge about Xserver architecture but thought there would be non-accelerated version available for fallback - all I need is xbmc/boxee openGL (2D transparency effects etc) and no 3D.

    Could somebody could enlighten me, please?

    ok,
    I should have checked http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature to confirm my fears.
    So no alternative but fglrx for unknown time for my 780G..

    Cheers

      I believe the binary driver replaces one or two files related to 3D, so after removing fglrx the problem might just be that theose file(s) are missing or still have the fglrx content. Not sure what the files are but hopefully someone here will remember...

        Thanks Bridgman,

        package search for intrepid gives:
        libgl1-mesa-dev, libgl1-mesa-swx11-dev, nvidia-glx-173-dev, nvidia-glx-177-dev, nvidia-glx-71-dev, nvidia-glx-96-dev

        http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?se...repid&arch=any

        so this should be either libgl1-mesa-dev or libgl1-mesa-swx11-dev, right?
        Reinstallation should do, and probably checking if r6xx-7xx drm.so was not overwritten?

          I think i should have been more specific, libGl.so.1.2 was missing so choices are narrowed:


          /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 libgl1-mesa-glx, xorg-driver-fglrx

          http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?se...repid&arch=any

          will try to reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx once at the box.

          thanks

              hy

              if you use gentoo just install eselect and then do "eselect opengl list"

              to see what is instaled and then do "eselect opengl set 1 or 2"

              if not just remerge mesa!

                Building .debs out of the fglrx packages has worked cleanly for the past few fglrx versions as well. Rather than replace any files it uses dpkg-divert so that everything's the way it was upon uninstallation
