  • Xv on x1400 with Radeon 3/26 version

    Excited about the newly added Xvideo support in the radeon driver, I installed a pre-packaged Ubuntu package of the latest git from

    https://launchpad.net/~tormodvolden/+archive

    It claimed to support Xv when I did xvinfo. However when I tried (on a mobility x1400 btw) to play movies (in mplayer and totem), the movie display was all white, and the computer crashed hard after a few seconds (still with some HDD activity).

    Oh well, hopefully soon

    Hmm, I got that package yesterday, and now I see that there's a newer one. Time to try it again

    try enabling EXA as well:
    Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

    Also try again with the latest drm installed from git.

      Also, are you setting the port of the Textured Video adapter (as you saw from xvinfo) when starting your video app?

        I tried it with the 3/28 version. With EXA enabled, X freezes right after logging in. Without it, same behavior as before.

          I have exactly the same behavior on a Lenovo T60 with X1300. And I tried to remove fglrx driver, to use different kind of combinations of options in xorg.conf, but none got succeeded.

            EXA on my rv515 fails unless I load the drm, I'll see what we can do but really accel with out a DRM is a pain in the ass, and I'm all for disabling it in radeon to simplify the codepaths.

              Sorry, but what's this DRM thing and how do I install it?

                Workaround for hard lock up problems (fglrx)

                690G IGP ATI x1250 128MB fedora 8 x68_64 latest proprietary fglrx from AMD website

                As wolf said, my post should be moved to fglrx, but interesting anyway.

                Now I believe locks are due to memory allocation issues, and has nothing to do with userland apps or games.

                Good luck.

                  No lock ups now, using standard configuration. I was having complete lock ups when playing urbanterror. Short answer, use amdcccle to set all 3D options to on (always on)

                  More info about what I tried here:

                  Thanks for the tip, but we are having a different issue which involves radeon driver instead of fglrx.

                    Tried with latest RadeonHD (4/1 version) from the same source. No Xv or xrandr support yet, so sticking with regular Radeon.
