    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.24 Kernel Released

    In time for Linux.Conf.Au that is starting in just four days, Linus Torvalds has this afternoon released the Linux 2.6.24 kernel. Compared to the 2.6.24-rc8 kernel there aren't many changes...

    restart X

    You are probably right, but much easier is just to reboot, especially considering I'm quite a newbie comparing to many Phoronix-forums users

    Once again thx!

    No need to, I found the solution!

    Your idea was right, but I had to do it another way. Firstly had to rebuild fglrx module using make.sh script, which on my Mandriva 2008.0 is located in /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod

    [root@Felipe build_mod]# ./make.sh
    ATI module generator V 2.0
    ==========================
    initializing...
    ./make.sh: line 537: [: =: unary operator expected

    done.
    ==============================
    You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx
    and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module.
    Finally I had to change directory to /lib/modules/fglrx (that is one up from previous) and install the modules using another script - make_install.sh

    [root@Felipe fglrx]# ./make_install.sh
    - recreating module dependency list
    - trying a sample load of the kernel modules
    done.
    After reboot all is working well, AFAIK

    Could you please post Xorg.log and maybe dmesg output?
    (and output of 'LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo').
    I don't know very much about userspace though. Others
    on this forum do.

    Yes, replace that line and recompile the module
    (just type 'make' in the directory where fglrx_public.c
    resides)

    replace the following line:
    Code:
    dev->spinlock[i] = SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED;
    with
    Code:
    spin_lock_init(&dev->spinlock[i]);
