Can't get any video on radeon card

Question

Hello, I'm encountering a most annying problem, my system boots up with my custom kernel and initramfs (both created by genkernel, though I did the configuring), but I can't see anything. The system changes that state of the numlock key, reponds to ctrl-alt-del, cleans tmp, but I can't see a thing. I have merged that ati-drives.

The default debian kernel does output messages.

My card is an amd 7770. My kernel version is pf-sources 3.19_r1, grub 2.02_beta2-r3, boot-update 1.7.3, and genkernel 3.4.40.7-r6.

I did read the ati install guide and follow the directions.

Thanks.

I use ati-drivers and had a problem with X booting to a blank screen very recently. There was a new config file placed by a recent update into 

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20opengl.conf

In it there was a reference to a non existent folder for loading modules. You might start there and see if you're experiencing the same update? I just commented out the one that was incorrect and my X booted up as expected.

 

What do your Xorg logs say?

I have had similar problems in the past with ati-drivers and a working framebuffer. Uvesafb provides support for a working framebuffer when using proprietary drivers like ati-drivers or the nvidia drivers. You could try installing klibc and v86d, and then try altering your boot flags to include something like

video=uvesafb:<your resolution>-32,mtrr:3,ywrap. If the required kernel options are enabled in the pre-built sources, you should be able to get video. Follow the below link for more info:

I followed the instructions but uvesafb does not work either. I know that the card works, it was great on Opensuse with the ati drives.

I did the smart thing and setup a boot script to try to load the aiti drivers and got the following error message.

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'fglrx': Required key not available

I turned off the SIG check but that did not help (CONFIG_MODULE_SIG=n).

I don't know what the uvesafb modules is so I could not load it.

I asked about this at irc #kernelnewbies but they only said that I should use the regular old ati driver from the kernel. If this is so then funtoo should not support the ati proprietary dirvers.

I think I found the problem with the fglrx drivers, now how do I fix it?

As a heads up to the funtoo devs, the uvesafb drivers fail to start because it claims that /sbin/v86d does not exist or is not executable. It both exists and is executable, though the kernel may be trying to load it from the initrd and I've not checked yet if it exisits there; so your wiki page may need to be changed.

Try making your kernel so that it doesn't include a reference to /usr/share/v86d/initramfs. Then, if you are using EFI stub booting, set the video=<your resolution>,mtrr:3,ywrap, If you are using GRUB, add the video option to your kernel parameters to pass at boot.

Got it working! Kinda...

I figured out why the /sbin/v86d file was missing, I ran make clean before I used genkernel! The reason that the radeon drivers were not loading was because of a kernel option I configured CONFIG_X86_SYSFB to on, which does not affect the drivers, on my laptop (intel), but does interfere with fglrx.

However, I still have a problem, I can't use anything with opengl. My Xorg log is located here https://bpaste.net/show/a4f28b122134. Any help would be appreciated. My kernel config is located here: https://bpaste.net/show/6649db1c7ee0 . The kernel's log can be found here: https://bpaste.net/show/3a3494f49a6c . Thanks!

Did you already use eselect as root to choose your opengl driver?

 # eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
  [1]   nvidia
  [2]   xorg-x11 *

# eselect opengl set 2
Switching to xorg-x11 OpenGL interface... done

Tried xopengl 11, my screen goes blank and does not come back, even after killing the X server.

I also decided to try to use the radeon opensource drivers, since they should support my 7780 card, according to http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/. The screen, while booting, looked like it was very stretched and I looked in the kernel config to see if I missed something and I tried passing nomodesetting and then it works for a terminal now. Alas, xorg unloads the drivers when it starts. I thought I should pass some mode settings for my monitor through xorg.conf but it does not recognize them. The driver it selected, fbdev, when running using sdl or opengl and any app that utilizes them turns the screen of every 3 secs for 2 secs.

Here is my xorg.conf (I tried learning from aticonfig to no avail):

And the logs:

drivers ati, opengl ati,

drivers ati, opengl x11,

drivers OS radeon, oepngl x11,

Thanks, David
