    I think that's the UMS path, dri2 should not call that function...

    Hi, thanks for your reply.
    I tried to find out if you are right, and I found this (on my own system, not the E-350):

    glxinfo|grep -i dri
    Code:
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RS780 9614) 20090101  TCL DRI2
    Compiled driver:
    Code:
    xf86-video-ati-6.14.1_build # hexdump -C src/.libs/radeon_driver.o |grep -C 2 yet

    I guess that part of the sourcecode is being compiled, so "XF86DRI" seems to be set.
    radeon_driver.c:
    Code:
    [...]
    #ifdef XF86DRI
    [...]
        if (info->ChipFamily >= CHIP_FAMILY_CEDAR) {
            xf86DrvMsg(pScrn->scrnIndex, X_INFO,
                       "No DRI yet on Evergreen\n");
            return FALSE;
        }
    [...]
    This is the message we saw in the xorg.log and there is no other apperance of this warning in the sourcecode.

    If I am reading the glxinfo output correctly, I'm running DRI2. Is this sufficent or do I have to check something else to see if it is DRI or DRI2?

    Missed the 1 minute editing-limit: I think I have mixed up DRI/DRI2 and UMS/KMS
    So.. you think this part of the code is only called when not using KMS, i.e using KMS will work, not using KMS won't work?

    Yes, I think the official position was not to make UMS accel at all for the new chips.

    To anyone with an E-350: we have uncovered the secret of undervolting, with good results. This processor has a lot of voltage headroom and you can reduce power consumption and temperatures by a few degrees both at idle and under load.

    This post details how to undervolt your E-350 by modifying pstate vids (safe) and this post explains how to enable coolsense for HP dm1z netbooks under linux:

    http://aceracpi.googlecode.com/svn/trun ... acer_ec.pl
    sudo ./acer_ec.pl := 0x5A 2
    sudo ./acer_ec.pl := 0x5B 2

    The correct link for acer_ec.pl is http://aceracpi.googlecode.com/svn/t..._ec/acer_ec.pl

The libva 1.0.1 in squeeze seems to be too old. No correct vainfo output at least.

    Instead of installing xvba-video manually you can just install in in Debian testing/sid:

    apt-get install xvba-va-driver

    Ubuntu natty has 0.7.7 instead of 0.7.8, maybe file a bug. You can fetch of course the debian package for it:

    http://packages.debian.org/sid/xvba-va-driver

    Best get of the old xvba-video package if you installed it already:

    dpkg --purge xvba-video

    it does nothing anyway when you don't use libva from

    http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne/libva/

    which uses a completely different packageing. It is really sad that those packages are not compatible. Also why does it need to be in non-free? It would be more logical when it would be in the normal repository just like vdpau-va-driver as the xvba sdk is available - so source could be released too...

    Hi Kano - I recently built an htpc with amd fusion / e-350. I installed ubuntu natty amd64, and built my own xbmc with vaapi support

    I manually installed from splitted desktop:

    xvba-video_0.7.8-1_amd64.deb
    libva_0.32.0-1+sds2.tar.gz

    and the latest catalyst 11.5 from ubuntu's x-updates ppa.

    Whenever I try to play any h264 content in xbmc with "vaapi accelaration" enabled in it, it will crash X. If I disable, xbmc can play any content with no problem (a no acceleration...)


    You seem to have gotten vaapi to fully work on linux. Did you do this in natty/amd64? any caveat like a missing link or something else?

    What do you mean when you say that the packaging is broken - can that be affecting the install I have?

    Thanks

    I tried Catalyst 11.3 + CatlystHacks libva + xvba from splitted desktop following this link:

    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...talyst.2Ffglrx

    I haven't got a chance to try it on Natty yet. I hope the same solution works for Natty.

    Thanks for the quick reply. It seems that on natty there is a packaging problem/conflict between splitted desktop (and also catalyhacks' ppa) version of libva and xbmc.
    It is described in this post:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...8&postcount=20

    Still trying to figure out how to solve this conflict without having xbmc removed...
