    got a similar issue: after building libdrm mesa xf86-video-ati (which worked previously + kms is enabled)

    the screen stays black and the monitor turns off

    I hope this doesn't resemble fglrx-behavior


    need this box for production so rolled back the previous versions from october 26th

    so it's most probably not an configuration issue - otherwise something changed in ddx and kms isn't enabled anymore or not working properly

    ok, now it works - seems like either previously there was some issue with the state of git + my system that didn't mix well

    or it was llvm

    the r600-llvm-compiler switch (gentoo) didn't want to compile now (needs specific patch) so I disabled it and X works so far

    might look into it and compile it manually/custom ebuilds

    Current ATI which have 2d tiling enabled by default only supports KMS so this should not be possible...

    What else is needed?

    P.S. This is output from Xorg log (these do not occur if using stable xf86-video-ati driver):

    You might also need to update other parts of the stack -- libdrm, kernel and/or mesa.

    It's possible that some part of the stack doesn't understand what's happening.

    Phoronix: Radeon R600 Gallium3D Enables 2D Color Tiling

    For those pulling down the Git master of the xf86-video-ati X.Org graphics driver this week, 2D color tiling is finally enabled by default for Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000/5000/6000 series graphics cards, from R6xx through the "Cayman" GPUs...
