Sarcastic comment : seems this topic deserves it’s own forum
I have an HP laptop running 11.3/KDE4.5.2, has integrated HD3200 ati graphics.
Yesterday, ATI version 10.10 fglrx driver was installed on the system, kernel was
22.214.171.124-0.4-desktop. I use the “build rpm” option with the downloads from ATI.
All seemed running well.
I had installed the automatic recompile script posted by please_try_again after moving to 126.96.36.199-04, so today’s new 188.8.131.52-0.5-desktop update was a chance to see it in action.
After the update and reboot, the X server restarted so I have to assume the automatic recompile script ran, although I did not see any messaging (place to look?).
However, some things did not seem “quite right”.
- fgl_glxgears ran, but seemed slow (only 70 or so fps)
- pm-suspend failed to sleep the machine, I see the error message “s2ram_do: Device or resource busy” in /var/log/pm-suspend.log, which I think (??) is fglrx related but not sure why I think that.
I moved to a root terminal, init 3, removed the fglrx rpm with yast, deleted the fglrx rpm and rebuilt a new one with ati…run. I then installed the new rpm (with yast), ran aticonfig --initial, then rebooted.
Basically, I am at the same level as above, fglrx installed and running, but slow and pm-suspend still not working.
So now I wonder if there is a new problem with the -5 kernel update, something like the excitement a couple weeks back when we had to patch the driver (or the kernel symbols) just to get a compile.
Can i assume someone has been able to cleanly update to 184.108.40.206-0.5 and get their fglrx running again?
An observation, which may or may not be related to my issues.
The fglrx rpm installs a new /usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_dri.so, but in reviewing the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, it never appears to load. Two other dri.so modules do load.
There is no “dri” section in Xorg.conf; I seem to recall there being one a while back, but much seems to be changing there so I am not sure what to expect any more.
Any thoughts, suggestions and particularly “it worked for me” would help me decide on next steps.
