    Default Open-Source AMD Fusion E-350 Support Takes A Dive

    Phoronix: Open-Source AMD Fusion E-350 Support Takes A Dive

    If you have been thinking about picking up a motherboard with one of AMD's new Fusion E-350 "Zacate" APUs to use with the open-source Fusion driver, you may want to hold off for a bit or be forewarned that it could be a bumpy ride...

    Why would you want to compile the Kernel on the Fusion Board itself? Just use a i7 or Phenom machine to compile the kernel and copy it over to the testsystem.

    Default VA-API/XvBA

    How does VA-API/XvBA preform on the fusion platform?

    And you should probably first investigate further on this in your log:
    [ 5.125212] r600_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/PALM_pfp.bin"
    [ 5.125258] [drm:evergreen_startup] *ERROR* Failed to load firmware!

    Damn edittime limit!

    A brand new ASIC doesn't work with the open source graphics drivers? Really??? What a surprise.

    Now I'd be surprised if it doesn't work as well as Evergreen does today in 2012...

    Indeed, you are lacking the out of kernel firmware, check if your distribution has a radeon-ucode package and install it, otherwise download it from http://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/ and unpack it in /lib/firmware/radeon

    I think I remember Ubuntu 10.10 also had a similar problem where they shipped the firmware but installed it into a wrong directory for some cards. Check this, Michael.

    What is it with the love affair with the word 'defenestrated'?

    Whoops, the Ubuntu package is indeed missing it, but the graphics are still broke.

    UPDATE: It turns out that the Ubuntu mainline kernels are missing the Fusion firmware. However, when dropping in the upstream PALM and SUMO firmware, the graphics still fail; black screen with the cursor and it's soft locked-up but there is still remote access. The new dmesg.
