    The driver has lots of problems with Xserver 1.4. Usually it starts, but AIGLX does not work and the first 3d app (except glxgears) hangs. Maybe ATI should compile it against Xserver 1.4 direct instead of using the same binary like for 1.3.

    Just to add more complete data to the bug report I filed on bugzilla.
    Dell e1705 (1GB RAM for now)
    ATI Mobility x1400
    Xorg version 7.2
    Kernel 2.6.22.13-0.3-default #1 SMP
    Gnome 2.20
    Compiz 0.6.9

    I tried installing the drivers again. Removed the old drivers, started with a new xorg.conf (mine was a mess, had references to both fglrx and radeon), and deleted all *fglx* files i could find.

    I don't have the "failed to initialize ASIC in Kernel" error any more, but i do have this:
    (EE) fglrx(0): [pcie] Failed to gather memory of size 262144Kb for PCIe. Error (-1014)
    (EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.
    (WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
    (WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
    (WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

    Whenever i try to run a 3D app i get kicked out of kde (X?).
    Sorry for the few details but my linux skills are very basic.
    regards,
    Carlos

    Question Version mismatch?

    Hi Carlos,

    Uninstall/Reinstall can be a bit tricky at times... So just to rule out a simple explanation for your errors: Is the right kernel module being loaded?

    On the other hand the "ASIC-error" you've seen before might have been due to a driver / kernel-module version mismatch that you cleared by reinstalling...

    You can easily check with "dmesg | grep fglrx" and compare the version number with that reported in Xorg.0.log.

    Cheers,

    ...oh crap... i was looking at the sax2 log file.
    I still have the ASIC error in the Xorg log:

    (EE) fglrx(0): Failed to initialize ASIC in kernel.
    (EE) fglrx(0): === [swlDalHelperAddCustomizeMode] === CWDDEDI_DisplayGetSetModeTimingOverride failed: 2
    (EE) fglrx(0): [pcie] Failed to gather memory of size 262144Kb for PCIe. Error (-1014)
    (EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.
    (WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
    (WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *

    (WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
    (WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *


    The fglrx versions are the same. And i also got errors with dmesg:
    [fglrx:firegl_cail_init] *ERROR* CAIL: CAILEarlyASICInit failed, error 1
    [fglrx:firegl_init_asic] *ERROR* Failed to initialize ASIC.
    [fglrx:drm_vmalloc] *ERROR* [mempages] Allocating 0 bytes
    [fglrx:firegl_init_pcie] *ERROR* failed to alloc pagelist of size 00
    [fglrx:firegl_cail_init] *ERROR* CAIL: CAILEarlyASICInit failed, error 1
    [fglrx:firegl_init_asic] *ERROR* Failed to initialize ASIC.
    [fglrx:drm_vmalloc] *ERROR* [mempages] Allocating 0 bytes
    [fglrx:firegl_init_pcie] *ERROR* failed to alloc pagelist of size 00

    bummer

    Exclamation File a Trouble Ticket!

    Hello,

    I just filed a trouble-ticket with the AMD/ATI customer support here:
    http://support.ati.com/ics/support/d...94&task=ticket

    You may want to try that, too - might be the only way to get AMD's attention...

    Cheers,
    knutbert

    Hello

    No ASIC error here (but having the same issues about 3D stated by Kano some posts up).
    Dell Inspiron 6400, ATI Mobility X1400, Mandriva Cooker (Xorg 1.4), kernel 2.6.24-rc8.

    Regards

    Unhappy No Laptop support from ATI/AMD...

    Meanwhile I got two responses from ATI:

    The first one was just an automatically generated email I suppose everybody gets who files a ticket about Catalyst drivers and Linux.

    Upon responding that the general information provided (nothing I hadn't seen before) did not solve my problem, I got an email from a CSR. So someone's actually processing these tickets!

    Unfortunately this second email also does not address in any way the specific problem I described in detail.
    It's just the same old collection of links to the well-known FAQs on the AMD pages.

    And then - yes, yes, of course I expected it - there's this:
    Since the equipment manufacturer that uses AMD technology in their mobile (laptop/notebook) products has many other implementations that might affect the general performance of the equipment, we redirect our customer to contact the equipment manufacturer for technical service.
    Now that's what I call a cheap excuse!

    I just hope this is only the official version and they are internally looking into the problem...

    Regards,
    knutbert

    P.S.: Caught myself the other day checking out prices of my laptops Nvidia-counterpart on ebay...

    For those of you using OpenSuSE 10.2/10.3 and most likely had your xorg.conf generated by SaX2...

    The short of it is there's a regression in the 8.01 driver. http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=998

    The good news is there's a simple work around for it. Find the Device section in your xorg.conf (Section "Device") and look for a line that starts with BusID. In quotes will be something like "1:0:0" (there will be different numbers depending on your card) Before that string of numbers, add "PCI:", to make it look like this: "PCI:1:0:0".

    Code:

    I was getting the same ASIC problem on the Radeon X1950Pro in my desktop with the 8.01 drivers on OpenSuSE 10.3. Commenting out the BusID line should work as well. You have Dieter Jurzitza to thank for tracking down the bug. I'm just passing on the good word after doing a Google search on the issue. I've got 3D acceleration and Compiz is working just fine.

    what can I say, this solved the issue completely for me - 3D and Compiz are working fine!

    Thanks for passing the news around, Antiarch! And thanks to sndirsch for providing the workaround!

    You are my heroes-of-the-day!
