AMD/ATI fglrx 10-8 and kernel 2.6.36
I'm pretty new to this forum so please don't blame if the thread is maybe at the wrong place.
I have the following goal: just update my system to kernel 2.6.36-rc3 and go on using the GUI.
so far so good, I'd done the following steps
- download kernel
- extract, build and install
- installed fglrx-modules-dkms, which tried to build fglrx.ko for all kernels
- cause the build failed on most of them I started to modify the source just to compile under 2.6.36
therefore I figured out that just a small identifier in the src/include/linux/fs.h has changed (the file_operations.ioctl changed to file_operations.unlocked_ioctl)
so I renamed it in fglrx code and everythings fine, build with
dkms build -m fglrx -v 10-8 -k 2.6.36-rc3
dkms install ...
but while starting X the screen just stays black/blank
last entry in Xorg.0.log is
"ukiOpenByBusid: ukiOpenMinor return 12" (if necessary I'll attech the full log)
It would be great to know if anyone else just had the same problem
and even greater if maybe one can provide a solution :-)
What I tried so far:
use some another fglrx version, namely 10-4, 10-7
What I plan to trie:
test with another kernel maybe 2.6.34, 2.6.35
whats still working is fglrx-10-8 with 126.96.36.199
As mentioned above, it would be wonderfull to get some reply :-)
and please don't blame me for some mistakes
you certainly didn't use the search-function did you ?
