    Default Xorg fails on options

    Hello,

    I found in my xorg.0.log the the xorg ATI driver is failing ALL options. Does somebody have a idea.

    Code:

    Default Re: Xorg fails on options

    I don't claim to be an expert on this subject but since you've had no response so far, I'll attempt an answer and apologise in advance for any misguidance or errors.

    The following hints in your
    • xorg.conf file,
      Code:
          Option      "ModelName"       	"ATI Radeon HD 5870"
    • xorg.0.log file:
      Code:
      [     9.476] (WW) RADEON(0): Option "VendorName" is not used
    suggest that you are trying to use the legacy "radeon" driver with an ATI HD 5870. However the "radeon" driver doesn't yet appear to support the HD 5870 (see the release notes on this page and examine the "supported hardware" section of the output returned by the command shown below).
    Code:
    man radeon
    My interpretation of the openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users and related links (also the AMD website) is that you should probably use the fglrx proprietary driver (currently AMD Catalyst 11.6?).

    Terry.

    Hi,

    Not supported seems weird to me because X.Org Wiki - RadeonFeature show that my family (Evergreen) is supported.

    The "radeon" driver is the opensourse driver of Xorg, the one you ment is fglrx driver from AMD.

    I don't want to use the AMD driver because it gave me a lot of issue when I was running openSUSE 11.3, I had a lot of tearing, even with the latest one, also that driver gave me a boot penalty of 30 seconds. Now my machine in boot within the 10 seconds, before it was aroud the 40 seconds, with 30 seconds of black screen with only a mouse pointer.

    Regards

    chariteb,

    It might help if you supplied more detail about your system. I suggest that you explicitly state your gfx (HD-5870?) and OS (openSUSE 11.4?) at the very least. This should make it easier for people with more expert knowledge or people with identical/similar gfx and OS (hopefully who have already identified a solution) to contribute. I've nothing more to add.

    Terry.

    @chariteb: I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve with your manual xorg.conf configuration, but it appears you have two monitors and would like to have the Philips monitor set up to display an image 'to the right of' the Samsung monitor image. Is that correct? For the most part manual configuration is not required, and if using KDE 4.6.X, it is possible to graphically configure dual screen operation (via System Settings). However, xorg.conf (or the newer config files within /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/) can be used if desired.

    To view the valid radeon driver options:

    Code:
    man radeon

    Hello,

    More info about my system.

    Os: openSUSE 11.4
    Processor: AMD Six-Core Phenom II X6 1090T
    Gfx: 2x Sapphire HD5870
    Mem: 16GB


    Yes I have 2 monitors, on on card0 and the other one card1. later I want to have xinerama playing. But now I have the problem that my Gfx cards has no power save because it's ignoring all the options supplied in the xorg.conf. So I want to know, did I something wrong in my xorg.conf, has the radeon driver a bug or has the radeon driver issues with the fact that I have 2 Gfx in my system. The options mentiond in my xorg.conf I found in several manuals and forums, including "man radeon", but as you can see it's ignoring valid options.

    Of course I can go to the fglrx driver from AMD, but I had serious issues with that one in the past (tearing, slow 2D performance), while for 2D performance the opensourse driver is fine, only missing the power safe possibilities. The fglrx driver has 2 advantages: Crossfire and power safe options that are working.

    Yep, it's not immediately obvious to me if you're dealing with a bug here, or current driver development with respect to your hardware, but in any case, I think you'll need to submit your issue(s) to the mailing list, or make a bug report, as this is not a trivial query then can be answered here. I'd be interested in seeing any updates on this though, so please keep us posted.

    Terry.
    My sincere apologies chariteb,

    I used openSUSE11.3 when I prepared my first response and issuing the terminal command "man radeon" did not list the hd 5870. However under openSUSE11.4 (which I am currently using) "man radeon" shows that in the supported hardware section, the hd 5870 is supported, i.e.
    Code:

    Default Re: Xorg fails on options

    Hi chariteb,


    Congratulations on manually building your xorg.conf file. It must of taken some time and knowledge.


    Just to give an exact status could you also post the output of the following,
    -- cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf
    -- cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf
    -- cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-screen.conf


    If you wish to use,
    --System Settings, --Dispay and Monitor
    to set things up all the information has to be in the above referenced files and have no file existing called /etc/X11/xorg.conf


    AFAIK the xorg.conf file was last used on openSUSE11.2,
    or generated now by installation of proprietary drivers


    Regards
    michael

    Not true. The legacy xorg.conf file (when it exists) is still respected, and changes made via KDE4.6.X are xrandr-based, and do not change the newer X.Org configuration files (/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/....).

    The OP's question relates to why the radeon driver generates warnings for apparently legitimate options. Of course, he could move the respective section to the newer respective config files, but it shouldn't make any difference (unless there have been recent X.Org changes here that I'm not aware of).
