  • FarJumper, I've been working on a guide for Ubuntu. It's a bit messy, but maybe it will help you: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/m5751c068

      • It probably doesn't include it because you need agd5f's DRM for it to work properly.

        • DanL, thanks a lot! The Guide seems to be very useful. I'll try in later.

          BTW, `sudo update-initramfs -u` handles the problem of blacklisted drivers you mentioned at the line 95.

          • I have a quick question for the AMD team : what level of support is brought by the incoming 2.6.31 kernel for r600 and r700?

            I seem to remember that KMS was for r500 and lower, but there seems to be some code for r600 in the /drivers/gpu/drm/radeon dir in the kernel tree.
            Is that supposed to be enough to get 3D with r600-r700 devices or does one still need to use the specific r600-r700 kernel modules branch to make it work?

            • I'm not part of any team but 2.6.31 will only give you 2D accel on r600/r700. For the rest you're looking for 2.6.32 or greater or agd5f's DRM branch.

                  Do you mind if I answer? I'm not part of AMD team.

                  .31 gives you 2D for R6xx/R7xx and somehow experimental (staging) KMS for r1xx-r5xx. New features usually can be pushed in merging window only, so don't expect new features to be added between rc1 and final.

                  On the other hand we will see merge window for .32 soon. So expect many new features hitting mainline and slowly going to .32 stable release.

                  • With the latest git, OpenGL compositing in KDE works longer than before, but when I tried enabling the desktop cube, the system hung, and I could only move the mouse around (sluggishly).

                    • 2.6.30 added EXA and Xv support for 6xx/7xx

                      2.6.31 added KMS/GEM/TTM support for r1xx-r5xx (staging only)

                      2.6.32 will hopefully add KMS/GEM/TTM support for 6xx/7xx (staging only) and 3D support for 6xx/7xx (normal, not staging). I think the intent is for KMS/GEM/TTM on r1xx-r5xx to move out of staging but I'm not sure about that.
