    Default X refuses to start, 100% CPU usage with new 8.34.8 drivers

    Hi all

    After waiting patiently for the updated drivers, hoping they'd solve my problems with my X1600Pro HDMI card, I'm hit with yet another problem. I've got kernel 2.6.19 installed, and just compiled the latest 8.34.8 drivers for xorg 7.1.

    When I try to start X, the screen goes black, and via ssh from another machine I can see the X process using 100% of one cpu core. I've checked the Xorg logs, and the last thing reported is that the fglrxdrm module was being loaded. dmesg shows nothing relevant, besides the two typical lines that fglrx spits out when its kernel module is loaded.

    I've attached the relevant logs below:

    dmesg | tail (after loading fglrx):
    Code:
    fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
    [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 919 MBytes.
    [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.34.8 [Feb 20 2007] on minor 0
    Anyone have any ideas why it would be freezing up like this?

    TIA

    This seems similar to this bug: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=567

    If you can SSh to a the system, can you get the output from the 'Alt-SySReq-t' key? It should give a dump of all running tasks (including where in the kernel the driver is spinning).

    I rebuilt my kernel with the SYSRQ support (I'd disabled it before), but the call traces are all empty; here's an excerpt:

    I haven't ever played with kernel-level debugging, so am unsure of what I need to do to enable proper call trace output... Is there an option in the kernel config?

    Thanks

    Nevermind that last issue, I realized that I hadn't built the kernel with frame unwind info, etc.

    The output still doesn't contain a backtrace for the X process, though, only startx and xinit. Here are the last 20 or so lines:

    The output just stops there, no call trace from X at all.

    A quick bump - I'm still plagued by this issue with the new 8.35 drivers. Anyone else seeing anything like this??

    Sounds like a driver bug. I guess start hoping it will be corrected in 8.36.

    Indeed it does; this is why I wish I had access to the source, so I could at least try to figure out what's going on instead of being completely at the mercy of ATI's release cycle and development priorities.

    hi,
    i have similar issues. x locks-up just after typing startx - blank screen. haven't tried to get the log via ssh, but i guess i'd get something like the one above. however, here's my lspci output. we seem to have quite some hw in common, blakeyez. any known issues with this mboard or combination of ati+amd64?
    btw: i've had also problems with the gl drivers in windows on this machine (wolfenstein: enemy territory locking up after few seconds)
