Nice to hear that it works now!
If you have the time, please report a bug on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/ so it can be fixed properly.
chithanh - works fine, thanks!
Kernel parameters: "video=DVI-D-1:e video=VGA-1:d"Code:$ ls /sys/class/drm/card0/ card0-DVI-D-1 card0-VGA-1 dev device power subsystem uevent
dmesg | grep drm:
Now the monitor switches off for some seconds after loading the kernel, but comes back with the boot splash animation at full monitor res and - more importantly - shows the KDM greeter! So I removed the xrandr stuff from ~/.kde/share/config/krandrrc.Code:[...] [ 1.650398] [drm] Connector 0: [ 1.650399] [drm] VGA [ 1.650400] [drm] HPD2 [ 1.650402] [drm] DDC: 0x6440 0x6440 0x6444 0x6444 0x6448 0x6448 0x644c 0x644c [ 1.650403] [drm] Encoders: [ 1.650404] [drm] CRT1: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 [ 1.650405] [drm] CRT1: NUTMEG [ 1.650406] [drm] Connector 1: [ 1.650407] [drm] DVI-D [ 1.650408] [drm] HPD1 [ 1.650409] [drm] DDC: 0x6430 0x6430 0x6434 0x6434 0x6438 0x6438 0x643c 0x643c [ 1.650410] [drm] Encoders: [ 1.650411] [drm] DFP1: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 [ 2.532824] [drm] Internal thermal controller without fan control [ 2.532850] [drm] radeon: power management initialized [ 2.548875] [drm] forcing VGA-1 connector OFF [ 2.548877] [drm] forcing DVI-D-1 connector ON [...]
Gotta make a correction: I haven't removed the edgers stuff (seems that was another test installation), so I have the git stuff installed. What I tested were edgers/natty packages, I updated them to edgers/oneiric an hour ago, still everything's ok. I disabled edgers now, so I'll hopefully pull stable packages before release. Or maybe I'll re-enable xorg-edgers? Dunno, tough decisions to make all day
But I did a test with Ubuntu Oneiric standard packages some days ago with my old TFT (1280x1024) with similar results.
chithanh: Filing a bug is what I was thinking about as well. I already did some searches, but didn't seem to find something related to Llano and the radeon driver. D'oh!
So I did a downgrade to oneiric's current xorg-packages: they work, I don't recognize a difference in quality. But they are slower; benchmark results for warsow, 1920x1280 are:
xorg oneiric: 18 fps
xorg edgers: 23 fps
Most worrysome to me currently is that googleearth (22.214.171.1247 and 5.1.3533) is too slow to work with. Version 6 offers to switch to DirectX mode (guess it's a winelib application) which results in a crash. The OpenGL mode is very slow, way below 10 fps for both versions of GE. I do remember that 5.1 worked with my old installation, Kubuntu 10.04 stock with radeon driver, Phenom 4x2GHz, Radeon HD 3300 IGP. It also was too slow (I think it was even a little faster than my current setup), but that was a 40 SP IGP vs the 400 SP one offered by Llano, plus doubled ram bandwidth.
