    Default self compiled 8.31.5 doesn't work on Ubuntu/edgy

    Hello all,

    I normally self compile fglrx driver on my system wich actually is Ubuntu/Edgy, I've done it several times with make-kpkg. The compilation actually works, then I

    Code:
    dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.31.5-1_i386.deb
    dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-2.6.18.1-z2_8.31.5-1+1_i386.deb
    but then when I reboot, X doens't load and

    Code:
    matteo@burnt:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old | grep EE
    Current Operating System: Linux burnt 2.6.18.1-z2 #1 PREEMPT Thu Nov 2 22:39:03 CET 2006 i686
            (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
    (EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1)
    (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available.
    what't the problem? Can you help me? 8.30.3 works pretty well.

    Thanks,
    Matteo

    The packaging script for 8.31.5 could be broken, so on 8.30.3 it builds and runs fine for Ubuntu?

    Default

    here is the method, kernel and fglrx version are old ones but the method is still the same

    Code:
    # compile and install your own kernel
    cd ~
    mkdir ati
    cd ati
    # download the latest ati installer
    wget https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-i386.run
    chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-i386.run
    LANG=C LC_ALL=C ./ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/dapper
    # install the source (tar.bz2 file will be placed in /usr/src)
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-source_8.23.7-1_i386.deb
    cd /usr/src
    # untar fglrx.tar.bz2 (will be unzipped in /usr/src/modules/fglrx)
    sudo tar xvf fglrx.tar.bz2
    # make sure that /usr/src/linux point to the right kernel
    cd /usr/src/linux
    # substitute '-z2' with your own, debs will be placed in /usr/src
    sudo make-kpkg --append-to-version=-z2 modules_image
    cd /usr/src
    # install the kernel module and xorg driver
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-2.6.16-mm2-z2_8.27.10-1+10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.27.10-1_i386.deb
    thanks for your help

    Default Solved

    now it works

    Code:
    matteo@burnt:~$ fglrxinfo 
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X700 Generic
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6174 (8.31.5)
    I guess I was doing './ati-blabla --buildpkg=Ubuntu/dapper' instead of './ati-blabla --buildpkg=Ubuntu/edgy'

    Thank you anyway

    8.31.5 installs just fine if you do as in http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide

    Myself when I install a new driver, I do a

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    select fglrx, reconfigure and then

    sudo -i
    cd /etc/X11/
    aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf (or aticonfig --initial=dual-head --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf)

    This driver also suffers from the video cropping bug on tv-out since the 8.20 release. http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=309
