  • radeonhd driver

    Hi there,

    i have been trying the radeonhd driver, but get stuck. It used to say my card was EXPERIMENTAL and not work. That message has gone away, but is replaced by the error below.

    do you know who to send the Xorg.0.log to?

    --edit--
    is it here:radeonhd@opensuse.org
    --edit--

    thanks,

    Dan

    (WW) RADEONHD(0): Unknown card detected: 0x7149:0x17AA:0x2005.
    Your card might not work or might not work optimally.
    To rectify this, please contact MAILINGLIST.
    Include your X log and the full name of the device.

    Hi,

    That error is saying your card is not supported by the driver(yet). Each card has a different mapping of outputs and have to be explicitly stated in the driver.

    To help developers complete this task, there is a utility called conntest.

    In the source tree (utils/conntest) is a utility. Read the readme and follow the instructions there.

    (yes the mailing list is as you entered it)

        conntest

        make failes:
        [root@dan-laptop conntest]# make
        gcc -Wall -o rhd_conntest rhd_conntest.c -lpci -lz
        rhd_conntest.c:37:21: error: pci/pci.h: No such file or directory
        rhd_conntest.c: In function ‘device_locate’:
        ...

        pci.h pci/pci.h seems to be available:
        [root@dan-laptop conntest]# locate pci.h
        /usr/include/linux/pci.h
        /usr/include/sys/pci.h
        /usr/lib/syslinux/com32/include/sys/pci.h

        tried copying pci.h to local directory - im sure its just a case of specifying library location, but nothing in the README..

          If you are using Debian or some derived distribution installing pciutils-dev should solve the problem. I don't know about other distributions.

            already installed

            thanks for response,

            its pciutils-devel on fedora8 (rawhide) as well, but thats already installed. below are the complete compile errors in case its something else...

              your locate doesn't show the file, are you sure it's correctly installed?

                i agree

                [root@dan-laptop conntest]# locate pci.h
                /usr/include/linux/pci.h
                /usr/include/sys/pci.h

                adjusted compile comand to:
                gcc -Wall -o rhd_conntest rhd_conntest.c -lpci -lz -I/usr/include/sys/


                it now finds it, but compile still fails.

                ill attach logs

                    I think you shouldn't add -I/usr/include/sys/ because it will break things. If you take a look at the file in /usr/include/sys/errno.h you will notice that it will include errno.h, which should then be /usr/include/errno.h. But because you added -I/usr/include/sys/ it will find /usr/include/sys/errno.h first and end up in an infinite loop.

                    And make seems to find a pci.h but not the right one. Did you change the source code? And remove the pci.h file in your local directory.

                      working

                      latest git and success - im using radeonhd driver as i write this.
                      still no luck with conntest though. i've not made any changes to source - no pci.h in the local directory.

                        You probably wont need to run conntest anymore because you card is now supported. So don't worry

                          Looking forward to aiglx in the future.

                              I installed it. It's good to know that you have an alternative.

                              It's working on my mobility x1600 on the 2nd display through the VGA with a 1440x900 in the Xorg but my monitor information says it's running on 1152x900 H53KHz, V57Hz.
                              At this stage the screen flickers oddly and also the fonts are blurred (maybe coz of the bad refresh rate)
                              (haven't tested on a single display yet)
