damentz: agd5f: what tool do i use to dump again?
damentz: agd5f: nvm found it
damentzlap: agd5f: http://rafb.net/p/zoKRLX40.html
damentzlap: theres the diff
damentzlap: 800x600 -> 1400x1050
damentzlap: i did it blind so i'm pretty proud of myself
orkid: agd5f: bug submitted. it's one of my first ever, so hopefully it's properly detailed
agd5f: orkid: sounds good
orkid: how would i go about turning off my laptop's lcd, and using the vga-out only ? i can't figure this out
ajax: xrandr --output LVDS --off
orkid: can i chang ethe resolution up to 1280x1024?
orkid: the xrandr command does nothing
orkid: maybe my drivers are too old
orkid: that seems to be the case, updating drivers works . thanks ajax
fnord42: I get garbled colors on my DVI output with the radeon driver, but it works fine with fglrx and under Windows.
fnord42: This is how it looks: http://fnord.hu/garbled-colors.jpg
agd5f: fnord42: what chip? got a log?
fnord42: ATI Radeon Mobility 9600
fnord42: log at http://fnord.hu/Xorg.0.log
agd5f: fnord42: external tmds isn't set up correctly. it may work if the bios sets up the external tmds chip. try booting with the DVI port attached so the bios inits it
fnord42: agd5f: hm, I did boot with the display attached
agd5f: fnord42: but did the bios init it? did it display the boot messages?
agd5f: you may have to boot up with the lid closed
fnord42: ah, that's a good idea, will try
fnord42: I did not see anything on the external display until X started
fnord42: brb :-)
fnord42: OK, so I got a nice BIOS screen & text console on the DVI display
fnord42: but the display became garbled as soon as X started
agd5f: fnord42: we may have to tweak fp2_gen_cntl. ping me if you get a chance and I can tell you some things to try
damentz: agd5f: did you get the diff i posted last night?
agd5f: yeah, unfortunately none of those regs were relevant
agd5f: did you see my question on you bug report?
damentz: no not yet
damentz: let me look
damentz: how do you change resolutions with xrandr again?
damentz: agd5f: but anyway, kde's gui and xrandr change the resolution the same way here
agd5f: so both of them cause the same problem?
agd5f: and do they both work fine if you remove Xaanooffscreenpixmaps?
damentz: oh, let me try that
damentz: agd5f: ok, without xaanooffscreenpixmaps
damentz: the resolution changes successfully without the screen going white
damentz: and i waited out the time out and it changed back to the original resolution fine too
damentz: but 2d rendering is noticeably slower without it...
agd5f: that option actually disabled 2D accel
damentz: ya i know, weird right?
damentz: maybe its resorting to software acceleration?
damentz: i /do/ have a slow cpu on the laptop
damentz: a 1.2ghz pentium 4-m
agd5f: yeah it is, but I don't see how that would affect the outputs
damentz: i wish i had a camera or something to show you whats going on
damentz: or a camcorder at least
agd5f: maybe it's some issue with the CPU accessing the FB when the new content is copied over?
agd5f: damentz: does it do it when you specify Option "NoAccel" "true"?
agd5f: damentz: also does disabling the dri help? Option "DRI" "false"
damentz: let me try that
damentz: agd5f: with those options the screen does go white
agd5f: damentz: did you try those options individually?
damentz: do they do the same thing?
agd5f: noaccel turns off all acceleration, the dri option just disables 3D and use of the drm for 2D
damentz: with "DRI" "false", it has the same behavior as with the xaanooffscreenpixmaps option missing
damentz: but if i use the option "NoAccel", the screen goes white anyway
agd5f: as in mode changes work fine?
damentz: whoa, software rendering is slow
damentz: 190fps in glxgears with dri false
damentz: oh not sure if this matters
damentz: i'm using xserver 1.4.1 git
agd5f: have you tried a different xserver? 1.3 or xserver git master?
damentz: agd5f: no, i don't have enough space to install another distro
damentz: i would try ubuntu though, it has xserver 1.3
damentz: and get the latest git for the radeon driver
damentz: not sure what else i would need to update
damentz: debian sid just kinda has everything up2date
damentz: sometimes too new
agd5f: airlied, MrCooper: any ideas why disabling acceleration would break mode changes for damentz?
airlied: agd5f: memory bandwidth? uggh..
airlied: or maybe we go down a different path with the fb location stuff.
agd5f: ati 6.8.0 released!
airlied: agd5f: woot!!
airlied: start the phoronix clock ;-)
