broke Xorg when trying to install proprietary AMD driver


Hi,

I have (optimistically) tried to install the proprietary driver of my graphic card (AMD Radeon R9 280X)
on my Fedora20 machine, and now Xorg won't start anymore.

Code:
startx
gives me
Code:

I think I screwed up /etc/X11/xorg.conf somehow?
I tried
Code:
sudo Xorg --configure
(which I believe sets a configuration based on the detected hardware?)
but it fails, the log file says:

I believe fglrx is the proprietary driver, there are radeon and vesa as well,
can anybody explain me what those modules are?
Now, I would like to either get back to the open driver or make this one work,
can anybody help me?

From where? Did you install from Fedora repositories?

Yes for sure something is broken.
What X -configure does is create/generate a xorg.conf.new file in the root user directory, it can't be run while X and login manager are running.


First step to start fixing it, is removing whatever you have installed because that caused the problem.
Here the important lines in the log:
Code:
[   950.307] (EE) Failed to load module "fgl.renamed.libglx" (module does not exist, 0)
[   950.307] (EE) Failed to load module "radeon" (module does not exist, 0)
[   950.307] (EE) Failed to load module "modesetting" (module does not exist, 0)
[   950.308] (EE) Failed to load module "vesa" (module does not exist, 0)
[   950.308] (EE) Failed to load module "fbdev" (module does not exist, 0)
[   950.308] (EE) No drivers available.
[   950.308] (EE) no screens found
As you can see in red there are no drivers or modules available.


Could you please post the result of:
Code:
lspci -k | grep -A2 -i vga

Regards

# X -configure
# X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

And various means to an end. The ati/amd driver is fglrx and replaces the libGL.so library to function properly. This is sometimes a step you have to do manually depending on the distro. And UNDO if you want to use a driver other than the fglrx driver. For legacy cards you have to run kernels at or older than 3.4.x to use the fglrx driver. Otherwise support for those cards is kind of decent in the radeon driver for kernels > 3.4.x. To include 3D support, but you'll use the gl driver instead of the xv driver when using mplayer. And things like xcalib instead of amdcccle to adjust settings.

For AMD cards it is recommended to use
Code:
aticonfig --initial
to create a xorg.conf file, instead of
Code:
X -configure
Also, make sure that the radeon module is blacklisted (usually the AMD installer does that for you).
Keep in mind that for the R9 series to work somewhat properly you need the latest AMD Beta driver, the stable driver will not be sufficient.

So, thanks for all the responses.

The driver comes from AMD's homepage http://support.amd.com/en-us/downloa...p?os=Linux+x86

I followed mostlyharmless' link, this allowed me to remove the ati proprietary stuff,
there's a script /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh that does this
the output, for the record:
Code:

Installed file is missing from system /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-fglrx.conf.
After that I rebooted (It told me it would be better to do so)

now if I try
Code:
Xorg -configure
I got:
Code:
...
Missing output drivers
...
Looks like everything I installed is removed (to cite ukiuki)

What now? I would like to restore the open source driver rather than install the proprietary one (I don't even know if I really need the proprietary one).
I guess I have to tell X to load the right driver/module?
(b.t.w. is driver == module?)

Thanks a lot!

Also read this the whole thing, to understand about radeon drivers and Fedora.

I don't use Fedora so i don't know what is the procedure to reconfigure the working driver.

What exactly is a kernel module? Modules are pieces of code that can be loaded and unloaded into the kernel upon demand. They extend the functionality of the kernel without the need to reboot the system. For example, one type of module is the device driver, which allows the kernel to access hardware connected to the system. Without modules, we would have to build monolithic kernels and add new functionality directly into the kernel image. Besides having larger kernels, this has the disadvantage of requiring us to rebuild and reboot the kernel every time we want new functionality.

Regards

The drivers for video also contain X specific files. Which are probably missing in your case, or your xorg.conf contains incorrect or old stuff. aka ' Driver "fglrx" ', versus the radeon that you might otherwise be using. Note that it is ' Driver "radeon" ' even if you have an HD chipset. It is NOT radeonHD. The X specific files I mention are in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ and end in _drv.so. It has known many locations over various transitions like /usr/X11R6/ and may differ depending on your distro. Basically you may need to "re-install" the xorg server to restore the original files and configurations.

Here In am,
sorry ukiuki,
here is the result of
Code:
lscpi -k | grep -A2 -i vga
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/R9 280X]
	Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Device 3001
01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 7970 Series]
I guess that's OK?

I understand that the following steps are quite distro-dependent (Fedora 20 here).
I removed x
Code:
sudo yum groupremove base-x
and then re-installed it along with MATE
Code:
sudo yum groupinstall "MATE Desktop"
So at this point, when I boot I got the login screen.
if I login on gnome, it fails,
if I login on MATE everything is OK, I wanted to install MATE anyway so I can live with that.

in /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers I have radeon_drv.so

and in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-0 (why this filename?) it says:

So far so good, thanks for your help!

I have another problem now, when I plug in my second monitor on the HDMI port (the first is DVI),
the image is just mirrored. And in the settings "detect monitors" just detects "Unknown".

I can't find any reference to my GPU (something similar to "Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/R9 280X]"?),
is the RADEON driver just one module for all (several) GPUs or are there several different RADEON drivers?
where can I get some info about the driver? I can't find any website which reunites all those info.

Another question: as user, am I supposed to edit the xorg config file?

I am still trying to remember my Linux stuff I used to use it all the time and I do remember I had a hard time with my old 3879HD vid card no matter which distro I try to install them on.

did you grab the right drivers? I am pretty sure that the newer ATI cards drivers have HD in them so a HD7770 I am sure would be the same drivers as a HD7990, then you have the older video card that like the 7000( no HD in them)
I think that these are the actual drivers

Add this line inside server layout in your xorg.conf, that will strech the desktop across monitors.
Code:
Option "Xinerama" "1"

Usualy those drivers cover a range of devices.

You can edit it to add things that you need like the xinerama above.

You will likely need to be root to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. But you can start X as a user. And use other configuration files when you do. This is not the default setup on many distros, but it can be done.

Radeon drivers are generally linked to drivers by the GPU chipset. Like r200, r300, ...

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ATI_FAQ

There's an initial xorg.conf command for the ati/amd tools to attempt to create a xorg.conf for you from existing stuffs.

# amdconfig --initial -f

Used to be aticonfig before amd bought the brand. And back in the day, never really made a correct xorg.conf for any old-ish hardware I had (and still have). But many distros get this right out of the box these days as long as your hardware isn't bleeding edge.

OK, I got it,
the solution was very simple.
the problem (multi-monitor didn't work and no monitor was not detected in Mate's monitors preferences) was that I had the 'nomodeset' in my kernel boot options and user mode setting was not supported as I discovered with
Code:
dmesg | grep -i radeon
To fix that I changed the file in
Code:
/etc/default/grub
and just deleted 'nomodeset' in the value of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX,
to make the changes effective:
Code:
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Et voila!
Thanks everybody for your help,
Cheers!
