    Default Catalyst 7.12 - PreInitDAL failed

    I thought I'd repost here as my original post will get lost in the 7.12 thread.

    I can't get Catalyst 7.12 working at all. When I type startx I get a black screen, I can switch back to a console but X has crashed with error message:

    Code:
    (II) fglrx(0): Monitor name: HP w22

    I installed 7.12 on Gentoo x86 using a modified 8.433 ebuild. I'm using X.org 7.3, kernel 2.6.23, ATI Radeon x1950 Pro AGP and an HP w22 LCD with native resolution 1680 x 1050.

    I've tried using X -configure to produce a new xorg.conf. I tried adding mode lines for 1280x1024. I'm not using a framebuffer for the console.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I am also getting this... I have a X800 AGP (AIW XT). Does this have to do with AGP? This has happened to me before with the 8.40 driver. I type startx and the screen turns off and the card has no video output. I need to press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and blindly cause a reboot. I am back on the 7-11 build which doesn't have this problem.

    Did you check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log for the same error?

    Hi! I'm new at the forum... I'm having the same problem.

    OS = Gentoo Linux for AMD64
    GPU = ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO (Gigabyte)
    Driver = Catalyst 7.11 / Catalyst 7.12

    Your display is plugged into vga or dvi output?

    My videocard in plugged into a pci express port. Here is my xorg.conf

    Thanks for you help...

    Ack, someone with a HD2400pro AGP is having the same problem in the thread:

    Michael, can't ATI use a few of us AGP owners in the closed BETA? It doesn't appear to be an obscure problem again.

    I don't know the numbers, but I suspect that AGP owners are under-represented in the beta group. I'll ask Matthew and see what he says.

    I do not think this is AGP-specific, because I get the same error with the x1400 PCIe on my Lenovo Z61m when using an external (analog connected) 1680x1050 LCD.

    When I unplug the external LCD X starts without errors, but with the known problem using 1280x1024 on the internal 1680x1050 panel.

    Hi,

    I had the very same problem ("PreInitDAL failed", after EDID data), with my new Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 (PCI-Express).

    I was using uvesafb. After seeing http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ATI_Dri...InitDAL_failed, I deactivated it (at boot... no need to remove it from the kernel). It now works without problem (as per `glxinfo` and `glxgears`).

    Gentoo-wiki links to http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=509, which should have been solved last year. I guess a similar regression happened.

    I hope this can be fixed again, so I can use my framebuffer :)


    Thanks in advance,


    Bye.
