Thread: X.org's radeonhd driver

  1. #1

    Default X.org's radeonhd driver

    Hi all,

    I made an update yesterday that included kernel update. I restarted my PC a couple of minutes ago and I got a blank black screen I realized the following:
    Status 09/2010: Linux distributions, including Novell's openSUSE, have now abandoned radeonhd as the default driver, instead using the radeon driver. radeon has more features, including Kernel Mode-Setting support and more 3D support, and it supports all Radeon generation from original R100 Radeons to R800 Radeons (HD 5000 series). Radeonhd can be continued to be updated as long as there are people find it useful.
    at X.Org Wiki - radeonhd So, probably there is a problem with the driver.
    Here is my Xorg.0.log (the last entries):
    Code:

    Just one remark, I have removed the radeonhd driver in the hope that the system start to work with messa drivers, but it didnt help.

    According to the Xorg.0.log it says it can't find modes or screens in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or KMS, whichever you're using. What's a "messa" driver?

    Don't use radeonhd use the radeon driver. Post your dmesg.

    Do you have any idea where to find the radeon driver? I can find only the "hd" one:

    The dmesg output is too long, what should I search for?

    OpenSUSE 11.3 is no more using xorg.conf in the "classical" way (there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Instead of that there are some config files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d). What KMS does mean?

    The radeon driver is included in the xorg-x11-driver-video package and it is the default driver for the ATI cards on opensuse 11.3. You don't need to install something.

    If you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf remove it and reboot. Post the output of "dmesg | grep drm"

    A little bit of info about KMS in the release notes:

    http://www.novell.com/linux/releasen...SE/11.3.42/#05

    Can you start up in failsafe mode ok? Have a read of these guides:
