Thumbs up ATI Version 8.40.4 DRI Hardware Acceleration Working (August 21, 2007)


Check this out!

Took a bit of patience but it seems to be working reliably.

Code:
root@slackware:/lib/modules/fglrx# fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI RADEON 9600 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6747 (8.40.4)

root@slackware:/lib/modules/fglrx# glxgears
16108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3219.410 FPS
18757 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3751.396 FPS
19784 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3956.594 FPS
Hope it helps,

- Perry

Hya,

A little bit old hardware, but it worked. nVIDIA GeForce4 420 AGP.

I submitted to HCL, which is

http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...t/3945/cat/500

glxgears run about 1200 FPS.

Happy Penguins!

Edit:
So far, impossible to hibernate. (nVIDIA module refuses to unload)

I'm stuck here
A. Why would make install works? you didn't make before.
Code:
root @ WhiteCastle linux] $ make install
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.21.5-smp arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot"

 *** Missing file: arch/i386/boot/bzImage
 *** You need to run "make" before "make install".

make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2
Also, I got no /lib/modules/fglrx

Finally, should you ever make any changes to your kernel after this, it'll be a good idea to do this after you've done a make install:
Code:
(current cd in /usr/src/linux)
make install
cd /lib/modules/fglrx
make_install.sh
This ensures the fglrx driver is still part of your kernel.
If making changes to your kernel is a frequent process, make a change to your /sbin/installkernel file to speed the process up for you!
Code:
# The -p is for the few people that know you can set passwords on lilo that
# will then be required if someone wants to be sneaky and root the system
# with "linux single" or similar lameness..
/boot/build
/lib/modules/fglrx/make_install.sh
/sbin/lilo -p
Step 6: Reboot & Test
Hope this helps get you these kind of results:
Code:
perry@slackware:/mnt/maxtor/installations$ glxgears
15743 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3147.260 FPS
19605 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3920.955 FPS
18246 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3649.192 FPS

Step 7: Enjoy your new 3D hardware accleration
Be sure to undo the changes made for your backup plan (if you did that), change the inittab entry from 3 to 4. Mind you, I'm back to 1280x1024 resolution again (as oppose to 1400x1050). Maybe I'll make another posting on how to switch between these two drivers later!

Cheers,

- Perry
ps.
While not an *absolute* requirement, sometimes ATI requests you have a device called 'shm' supported in your /etc/fstab:
Code:
tmpfs  /dev/shm  tmpfs  defaults    0   0
It rarely takes up much memory, it won't hurt to have it included!

I got these results :

Wink Have you checked your kernel?

itz2000:

(That "make install" was a reference to your kernel, if you were updating your kernel that would be the last instruction before adding your ati driver)

Seems to me that you might be using the *huge* kernel. You might want to do a kernel distribution upgrade from Slackware (see above) and then make use of your generic-smp kernel before trying to install your ATI driver. Thats how I did it.

Also, even after you get it all setup, whenever you make a change to or reinstall your kernel you'll probably need to reinstall your ATI module simply by:
Code:
cd /lib/modules/fglrx
./make_install.sh
IF that directory isn't there something isn't installed properly.

In order to enable Xv video overlay with the fglrx driver you have to tell it (it is not enabled by default when you run "aticonfig --initial").
Code:
aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv

ok, i confess... thats the first i've heard of "--overlay-type=Xv"

by some chance of the imagination does that have to do with playing videos or using flash player ?

you got me curious so i tried it:

Code:
root@slackware:/etc/X11# cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.ati
root@slackware:/etc/X11# init 3
root@slackware:/etc/X11# aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv
Warning: Option 'VideoOverlay' doesn't affect running session.
Warning: Option 'OpenGLOverlay' doesn't affect running session.
Using xorg.conf
Saved back-up to xorg.conf.fglrx-1
root@slackware:/etc/X11# init 4
Eric:

on a side note, is it next to impossible to add a boot splash to Slackware, i keep reading these horror stories about it here. or is it just a bad idea all around?

thanks

Well, it is a useless piece of eyecandy if you ask me, and other distros use it to hide those "confusing to the average end user" kernel messages that scroll on your screen when Linux boots.
But it is not hard at all to add bootsplash to your Slackware system at all provided you find a bootsplash kernel patch for your exact kernel, are not afraid of a kernel compile, are willing to edit all of your "rc.*" files to add progress bar information, and know how to create an initial ramdisk (initrd) and add the bootsplash program to it, and know how to add it to lilo.conf.
So, yes, doable.

There is also the "splashy" utility from Debian, which does not require a kernel patch. All it does is (again) hide the kernel messages on boot by "splashing" a nice bitmap on your console with a progress bar. Again, you will have to edit all of your rc.* files, know how to create a initrd and use that.
Bootsplash is more powerful than that because it can wrap your consoles in a nice graphical theme as well.

I can't enable direct rendering on toshiba satellite L20 running slack 12.0 with default kernel (2.6.21.5-smp).
I use default i810 driver from the slackware 12.0.
Already put modprobe i810 and modprobe drm in rc.modules
Already edit the xorg.conf , but still:
Code:
$glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
Anyone can help?

What is your output of:
Code:
lspci
And
Code:
lsmod
Could be something easy

I don't mean to hijack this thread but I followed the instructions (or so I thought) and somehow messed something up. When my computer boots in root boots fine with ATI Radeon drivers. Everything seems fine. But if I logoff and kill X then I lose my drivers and my screen shuts off. Sometimes my PC won't shutdown all the way, it shuts X down, but doesn't seem to shut it down any farther. And to make it worse, it won't boot in X on my other account(the non root account).
Any advice would be nice.
