fglrxinfo reports Mesa, but ATI installed(?)


Ok, kernel version 2.4.26 I have installed the ATI driver package following the instructions I have found here on LQ (and by STFW). However, on checking my installation I get:

EDIT: The fglrx driver was installed from the rpm at the ATI website...

Code:
iain@iains:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Brian Paul
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11
OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 6.2.1

iain@iains:~$ grep '(EE)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
iain@iains:~$ fgl_glxgears
100 frames in 5.0 seconds = 20.000 FPS
109 frames in 5.0 seconds = 21.800 FPS
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
So why does fglrxinfo not report "ATI Technologies" or something similar?

Output from dmesg:

Code:
[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 429 MBytes.
[fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.10.19 [Feb  9 2005] on minor 0
[fglrx:firegl_addmap] *ERROR* mtrr allocation failed (-22)
[fglrx] free  PCIe = 54804480
[fglrx] max   PCIe = 54804480
[fglrx] free  LFB = 114208768
[fglrx] max   LFB = 114208768
[fglrx] free  Inv = 0
[fglrx] max   Inv = 0
[fglrx] total Inv = 0
[fglrx] total TIM = 0
[fglrx] total FB  = 0
[fglrx] total PCIe = 16384
Could the mtrr alocation error be the root of my problem? If so, how to fix it?

Output from syslog:

Code:
Mar 27 20:42:26 iains kernel: mtrr: v1.40 (20010327) Richard Gooch (rgooch@atnf.csiro.au)

I dont see your graphics device in xorg. It should look something like this.
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Radeon"
    Driver      "fglrx"
EndSection
Personally I never did get the ATI drivers working until I found this slackpack of the drivers at linuxpackages.net. Once I installed that, I had 3d accel.

Look again - it's there, just below the monitor section...

Code:
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "Monitor0"
    HorizSync   30.0 - 69.0
    VertRefresh 48.0-125.0
    Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier                          "ATI Graphics Adapter"
    Driver                              "fglrx"
    Option "no_accel"                   "no"
    Option "no_dri"                     "no"
    Option "mtrr"                       "off" # disable DRI mtrr mapper, driver has its own code for mtrr
    Option "DesktopSetup"               "0x00000000" 
    Option "MonitorLayout"              "AUTO, AUTO"
    Option "IgnoreEDID"                 "off"

etc...
From what I can find everything seems ok apart from the mtrr allocation error but nobody seems to have a surefire fix for it (unless my Googling isn't up to scratch).

you could try to change...
---------
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"
---------

to "no "

then you'll use the agpgart that comes with the kernel.
( it's better )
make sure agpgart is compiled as a module and loaded before X starts.

Hmmm,

Code:
iain@iains:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Brian Paul
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11
OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 6.2.1

iain@iains:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Use
    Option "UseFastTLS"                 "0"
    Option "UseInternalAGPGART"         "no"
iain@iains:~$ fgl_glxgears
97 frames in 5.0 seconds = 19.400 FPS
104 frames in 5.0 seconds = 20.800 FPS
108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 21.600 FPS
That doesn't seem to help either...

[CODE]
root@iains:/home/iain# modprobe agpgart
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: insmod agpgart failed
root@iains:/home/iain# dmesg | grep -i agpgart
Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 438M
agpgart: no supported devices found.
/CODE]

Which kind of makes sense - I should have said before that the display adaptor is a Radeon X300 (PCI-X) card.

Ok, I've now installed the package from LinuxPackages (which seems to just automate the steps taken when building from the ATI package)

The results:

Code:
iain@iains:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Brian Paul
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11
OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 6.2.1

iain@iains:~$ fgl_glxgears
96 frames in 5.0 seconds = 19.200 FPS
108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 21.600 FPS
114 frames in 5.0 seconds = 22.800 FPS
112 frames in 5.0 seconds = 22.400 FPS
XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
      after 1613 requests (1611 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
So, no change.

Any other ideas please?

here they say you should use a 2.6.xxx kernel.

Hmmm, interesting, because ATI say:

Quote:
Before attempting to install the ATI Proprietary Linux driver, the following software must be installed:

POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D apps
glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
Linux kernel 2.4 or higher
XFree86 version 4.1, 4.2, or 4.3
Oh, I have

Code:
tmpfs            /dev/shm         tmpfs       defaults         0   0
In my fstab to take care of the shared memory requirement.

I guess I'll try a new kernel anyway. After all, it is Easter!
