radeon problems with latest -current update


I updated -current today and have run into a serious problem.

This is KDE: http://68.45.22.62/X-KDE-current.png

xfce shows the same basic problem. Upon starting X, dmesg fills with:

Code:

Prior to starting X, these are my drm messages:

Anyone else with the same problem? I'll try updating to a newer kernel and see if the problem goes away.

Strange! Looks like an old libDRM library speak gibberish with the kernel's DRM part!!?!!? Try an rebuild of libdrm and mesa.

I did reinstall libdrm and mesa, but not rebuilding from source. Guess I can give that a shot.

I'm running 2.6.36.3 now, built using the config for 2.6.35.10-huge, and now everything is fine. Looks like 2.6.35.10 has a bug in the radeon drm.

If the 2.6.35.10 kernel is broken with the Radeon, I sure hope that the next release of Slackware is delayed until it's fixed. Since the compiler has just been upgraded, why not switch to a more reliable kernel, like 2.6.38 ... Why? I need my Hauppauge remote to work and major new parts of the open source Radeon driver will be included. Personally, I can wait another month or two for a new Slackware release. I actually want a release which works in all respects ... I don't blame Pat and his team, but I AM growing a bit tired of dealing with incomplete and broken kernels... In the meantime, I'll just stick with 2.6.35.7 ....

Of course, it could just be an issue with 2.6.35.10 + HD4850 + my particular motherboard. I'd be interested in knowing if others are having the same problem.

Since I have an HD2600, I'm tempted to take a chance... Understand, though, that the current Catalyst 10.12 driver doesn't work with the current release of SDLMESS * so if the Radeon driver is broken when I upgrade the kernel to 2.6.35.10, I'm between a rock and a hard spot.... I think I'll wait until ATI/AMD releases a new Catalyst driver (should be less than two weeks) and test it with SDLMESS before upgrading to 2.6.35.10 ...

* sdlvideo_init errors ...

ATI HD4200 motherboard here and I'm not getting those lines in dmesg. The radeon and drm modules are loaded but I have no access to KDE dektop effects at all. It's been like that for a while on -current. I do notice a Xorg.0.log entry calling out libdrm-2.6.0 or newer required. Maybe I'll give that a spin.

Same problem here with HD4350.
Downgrading kernel back to 2.6.35.7 helped.

Same here with an hd3470. Was fine in 2.6.35.7 - not so in 2.6.35.10. Built 2.6.37, radeon works for anything 2d. 3d is a mess, maybe I'll look into upgrading libdrm.
My x1600 agp runs acceptably on 2.6.35.7. Braid, Aquaria, WoP ...


Yes 2.6.35.10 is broken with radeon. Bug reports abound all over the place. Sadly this was fixed in both 2.6.36 and 2.6.37, but never back ported to the long term supported kernel. Maybe in .11.
I've attached the patch from Fedora that fixes this. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=664206
IMO, considering you would have to patch .10, and recompile, it might be worth while to just use a working kernel (2.6.35.7), or upgrade and compile a newer non 2.6.35.x series kernel.

I've stayed on the 2.6.35.7 kernel until 2.6.35.10 gets sorted out.

Here is another report of the same bug:
