Thread: Problems of ATI driver 8.31.5 from livna repo

  1. #11

    Default

    For Livna RPMs, last time I used them you had the option of installing the control panel or not. However, with the official AMD installer once you pass --buildpkg Fedora/FC6 that is the only option and it will execute the scripts to build all of the RPMs. The way to get the fireglcontrolpanel out of the build stack would be to comment out or eliminate the code in the packaging script.

    I am not sure how to do this. You mean comment out some lines in the scripts attached before the binary code, or we have to extract out all the stuff first and then play with them?

    Run

    ./amd-driver-name.run --extract

    Then in

    fglrx-install/packages/Fedora

    open ATI-fglrx.spec-tmpl and remove or comment:

    %{_bindir}/fireglcontrolpanel
    In ati-packager.sh open that up and remove or comment out:

    Code:
         if [ ! -x ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel ]; then
           mkdir ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources
           pushd ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources &> /dev/null
           tar xzf ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources.tgz
           sed -i 's|^LIBQT_DYN = qt$|LIBQT_DYN = qt-mt|' Makefile
           sed -i 's|STRIP = strip|STRIP = @echo strip is disabled for:|' Makefile
           sed -i 's|BASENAME =  fireglcontrol|BASENAME =  fireglcontrolpanel|' Makefile
           [ -n "$QTDIR" ] || . /etc/profile.d/qt.sh && make &> /dev/null
           install -p -m 0755 fireglcontrolpanel ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel
           popd &> /dev/null
         fi
    and then that should probably be it. Then move back into the main fglrx-install folder and run

    ./ati-installer.sh 8.31.5 --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

    and it should build without fireglcontrolpanel. If I recall correctly, those should be all of the fireglcontrolpanel references you need to remove. If it still gives you problems when building, just follow where it gives you the problem and then comment/remove those lines.

    Sorry for my stupid mistake.

    I did not remove the old module after upgrade. So, after a reboot and create a symbolic link to the right libGL.so.1.2, it works fine now.

    Livna's fglrx 8.31.5 driver is okay.

    Sorry for the confusion. Maybe the whole thread should be removed.
