    You need to update libdrm and then rebuild xf86-video-ati.

    You need an updated libdrm, otherwise you will get an unresolved symbol.

    The only problem is that you might end up with a blank screen if you forget to load fbcon (the framebuffer console).
    This is exactly the reason why I compile everything into the kernel.

    Why should I have to remember to load the framebuffer console?

    Console works well in full resolution with KMS but when I start Xserver it freezes. Graphic adapter is Mobility radeon HD2600.

    Xserver output:

    yeah, figured, just reinstalled lbdrm and video-ati from ppa.


    Is there any way to fix such incompatible problems durring configure.sh stage ?

    like, if version of libdrm isn't decent - ask for update.

    Make sure you updated your libdrm tree properly. Here is the relevant commit:

    I copy /usr/local/lib/libdrm.so.2.4.0 to /lib and now this works perfectly
