Any success stories with Kaveri?


Because I apparently watch too much Top Gear, I thought "how hard could it be?" and "what could possibly go wrong?" and built me a new Kaveri box this week. This was current three weeks ago (with multilib), I upped the kernel version to 3.13.1 and the ATI Catalyst driver to the 14.1 beta. I've been using nvidia the last few years so I'm new to ATI. A few questions:
1. What are the sensor modules? sensors-detect didn't pick up anything.
2. Has /usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL always been broken for Slackware?
3. I did get DRI working in spite of the libGL brokeness, but now google earth 7 crashes right out of the gate with signal 11. GE 6 doesn't have this problem, but it sure is slow.
4. Something in my system doesn't like b43 hardware. I got this during boot:
[ 19.100324] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 666.2 (2011-02-23 01:15:07)
[ 19.173866] AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=00:14.4 domain=0x0014 address=0x0000000000117040 flags=0x0050]
It then proceeded to spit out many IO_PAGE_FAULT messages per second until rebooted. I had to swap out the wireless card with an Atheros I had lying around to make it stop.

New board; probably needs new drivers for those sensors.

Looks like something does not play nice with the IOMMU. You could try turning that off in the bios/efi.

Well, maybe 3.13.2 will fix the CPU temp issue:

hwmon: (k10temp) Add support for Kaveri CPUs
commit d303b1b5fbb688282bbf72a534b9dfed7af9fe4f upstream.

I'll know shortly.

32-bit Google Earth 7 works. Apparently the so-called 64-bit version is still a work in progress.

As for the AMD-Vi IO_PAGE_FAULT issue, I tried all sorts of BIOS settings to make it go away. No effect. There are some fixes for b43 in the 3.13.2 kernel, but I won't be testing those.

Interesting...my next system will be a Kaveri system. I am currently using a Llano system and it's been great.

So, the 3.13.2 kernel does have Kaveri temp support. Just one problem:

$ sensors
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +1.6C (high = +70.0C)
(crit = +70.0C, hyst = +69.0C)

Is a wrong number is better than none at all?

I get similar results with my Vishera CPU using kernel 3.10.17. The values jump around in sync with the power readings. They always are close to half of the power values.

Code:
$ sensors
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +17.1�C  (high = +70.0�C)
                       (crit = +90.0�C, hyst = +87.0�C)

fam15h_power-pci-00c4
Adapter: PCI adapter
power1:       30.68 W  (crit =  94.99 W)
Code:
$ sensors
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +21.0�C  (high = +70.0�C)
                       (crit = +90.0�C, hyst = +87.0�C)

fam15h_power-pci-00c4
Adapter: PCI adapter
power1:       46.24 W  (crit =  94.99 W)
Code:
$ sensors
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +24.8�C  (high = +70.0�C)
                       (crit = +90.0�C, hyst = +87.0�C)

fam15h_power-pci-00c4
Adapter: PCI adapter
power1:       53.39 W  (crit =  94.99 W)

I also have weird temperature readings. I guess the kernel support is not 100% bug free yet.
Apart from that, I'm using git versions of libdrm, mesa, mesa-glu, glamor and xf86-video-ati and if works very well with proper compositing in KWin, vdpau support using the UVD chip.
Honestly, the chip has been released a month ago, and almost everything works well. I'm impressed.

It happens 10 times in a row. Anyone else seeing this?
The graphics seem to work OK anyway, but sound was a little broken.
