    Default Continued driver issues - Resolved

    For around the last 4/5 driver releases I have had no luck with the propriety drivers for an X800SE. I have viewed many posts and possible solutions already over the months with no luck. The following output from my Xorg.0.log file seems to be the only notable issues:

    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is 7, (OK)
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is 7, (OK)
    drmGetBusid returned ''

    To explain the issue a little further the drivers install fine, the aticonfig program works and all seems fine, I then restart and end up with 2 black screens, and the computer hard locks. I can disable DRI and they will load, but thats kind of pointless and the open source drivers work just fine for desktop use.

    If anyone has any further ideas please let me know. It will save me buying a new card for a little while longer, at least currently that seems my only option for accelerated 3D in linux.

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    What does your xorg.conf look like?

    Sounds not like a fglrx issue.

    I think you've forgot to install the libstdc++5 libary.

    libstdc++5 is installed.

    Does it work for you if you make a dummy xorg.conf that is very simple?

    I just tried a nice simple config, setup for 1 display, removing un needed modules and font paths. Still results in black screen and a hardlock.

    I thought I had this same problem, but it turned out the black screen was just console 7 - the screen that the X server normally runs on. I hit Alt-F1 and got back to my login console, and everything was fine. My problem turned out to be that I hadn't installed compat-libstdc++-33 (Fedora 6).

    Just a suggestion.

    Thanks, I can however confirm that this is not the problem. The system is completely unresponsive to switching console or restating X (ctrl + alt + backspace). I can only reset the computer from the power switch once X has started using the fglrx driver with DRI.

    Sorry that didn't help. I'm having problems too, with the 8.37 driver, on Fedora 6, with an X1300. Initially I was seeing the same "drmOpenDevice" messages in my Xorg.0.log. Then I remembered I upgraded the kernel after installing the drivers. I re-ran the ATI installer, did a "modprobe fglrx", and the drmOpenDevice calls started working again.

    However, I still have another problem: I've run aticonfig --initial --dtop horizontal, but my 2nd head stays stubbornly dark. I've also tried aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=left, same thing.

    The really frustrating thing is, this worked once, but I don't know what I changed.

    EDIT: I should also note that the 2nd head works in console mode.

    Here's my xorg.conf:
    Code:
    # Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
            Identifier     "Default Layout"
            Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]" 0 0

    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "Keyboard0"
            Driver      "kbd"
            Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
