  • xorg ati.

    Hi
    i have compiled xf86-video-ati. i use kubuntu 12.04
    /autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/xorg
    after
    sudo make install


    but
    how do i load the driver?

    with kms, the xorg.conf file is disabled?

    thanks for help, sorry my english is bad.

    Well, my xf86-video-ati package has these two files:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ati_drv.so
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
    So you could just move them there and overwrite the old ones (and simply reinstall from the package manager to revert to the old one).

    I think you can use this to see where your X.org server looks for modules:
    Code:
    X -showDefaultModulePath
    X.org also has this in the Xorg manpage:
    Code:
           -modulepath searchpath
                   Set the module search path to searchpath.  searchpath is a comma separated list of directories to search for Xorg server modules.  This option is only available when the server is run as root (i.e, with real-uid 0).
    So you could probably use
    Code:
    sudo X -modulepath /opt/xorg/<wherever your modules are there>

        Hello.

        xorg.conf does indeed work, even with KMS.
        You can create it from scratch, or even better, use xorg.conf.d/xx-xxxx.conf approach. Archlinux has pretty a lot of documentation on topic.

        When using KMS, you can also use "driconf" utility to tune your card.

        As for display manager, its either MDM or lightdm, so "lightdm restart" or "/etc/init.d/lightdm restart" depending on subsystem (I think kubuntu is with upstart, so 1st variant).

          driconf doesn't require kms.

            Yes, of course, correct. Driconf is for any driver using DRI, any opensource driver. Works worser with nouveau however, from my experience.

              Thanks

              sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm rstop (works good).


              1000 Thanks
