WOW thanks, going to try that.

gpu temp is quickly rising after waking from sleep.
setting the fanspeed with aticonfig doesnt seem to do anything even though it says the fanspeed is at 100%.
so im guessing there is only one fan for the notebook and its not controled by the gpu ;)
gotta check if this happens with the open source drivers.
put the ubuntu 10.04 livecd on a usb stick a tried to put my notebook to sleep - it crashed.
turns out this bug has nothing to with fglrx and is a kernelbug.
Upgrade to .33! Not that you should have to..
Sleep/resume in Lynx has also been flaky on a laptop I recently tried it on, very old laptop too. Kind of scary since Ubuntu is being sold on laptops, but *hopefully* it's a driver and hardware-specific thing..
afaik fglrx doesnt work with .33 and im not really in the mood to tinker around.
If 2.6.33 support is all you need:
wget -qO- "http://phorogit.com/index.php?p=fglrx-packaging.git&dl=plain&h=33df5ab6059ed9a3f172d4a201159b6c235da2a0"|(cd /usr/src/fglrx-8.721;sudo patch -p6)
You may download already fixed patch here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ca...x-2.6.33.patch
With this patch catalyst works fine also on 2.6.34x kernel.
I would like to confirm that this catalyst 10.4 beta works fine on xserver 1.8 - at least on yesterday's git build. The final version shall arrive soon, so i dont expect much changes here.
I have succesfuly ran it basing on krionius (aka timong) research posted mostly here: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p...728571#p728571
As you can see you must cheat catalyst by compiling xserver 1.8 as xserver 126.96.36.199, otherwise catalyst wont work with it cuz of xserver version mismatch.
Also with xserver 1.8 comes some changes cuz of switching to udev instead of hal - you need to create /etc/xorg.conf.d directory with additional files in it for every input device you have (otherwise your mouse/keybrd wont start).
More here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p...998cdf57f66731 and here: http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/01/ne...rld-order.html
Plus dont add any new xserver Section into your /etc/X11/xorg.conf - this file is still used by catalyst - i mean ie dont add any Section "InputClass" into xorg.conf cuz when you do this both aticonfig and amdcccle wont start cuz of parsing xorg.conf error (just use /etc/xorg.conf.d directory for it).
My question and request to AMD devs is: can you please add xserver 1.8 support into upcoming catalyst release? Its really already working but it would be so nice if we all could use catalyst and xserver 1.8 without additional hackish solutions.
I guess its not appropriate place for such request, but i dont know is there any way to communicate with AMD. I guess i shall wrote my request to John Bridgman (?) - maybe he can do something with it.
And in the end i would like to thank AMD for catalyst 10.4 beta in behalf of all it's archlinux users.
pointed at the DDC /EDID of the laptop screen potentially being the source of the segfault. I tried reading the EDID with powerstrip in windows but that failed: no data readable . In windows the screen ended up with microsoft as manufacturer etc.
could somebody tell me if it is possible to HARD drop DDC/EDID reading with the xorg.conf, I have googled and tried things like:
but that has not worked for me.Code:
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
Option "NoDDC" "true"
is it possible to use kms with the new drivers?
