r600_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/R600_rlc.bin"


Hey,

So, I'm unable to laod firmware R600_rlc.bin. Here's my dmesg

Code:
[    0.716831] [drm] radeon defaulting to kernel modesetting.

Here's where it comes up in Xorg.0.log

Code:
gentoo log # cat Xorg.0.log | grep 'radeon'
[    78.518] (**) |   |-->Device "radeon"
[    78.721] (II) LoadModule: "radeon"
[    78.721] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
[    78.787] (II) Module radeon: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
And I have already set it in my .config
Code:
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/R600_rlc.bin"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"
And i have rebuilt the kernel, (make && make modules_install) and have tried it with (make && make firmware_install) and still no luck.

I'm completely out of ideas because everybody on the Internet who has had this problem has fixed it by getting linux-firmware and settting those options in .config. I have done that in the past and it has work, and now it does not work.

This leads me to think that there is either some really minor thing that I'm overlooking or some bigger problem.

Thanks

IIRC, there were two firmware files not included in the kernel pack. I got them emailed to me from someone, but they're in recent kernels. It should be in /lib/firmware/radeon. If you get stuck, i can stick a copy on my skydrive for you.

Try a symlink
/lib64/firmware --> /lib/firmware

It's crazy I agree, but it might be the issue. You seem to have covered every side of it.

Your FIRMWARE options are missing a / making the path to the firmware file wrong ( /lib/firmwareradeon/R600_rlc.bin)

Either put it / after firmware or before radeon.
