Sir_Lewk: has anyone else been getting anything like that using radeonhd?
Sir_Lewk: I have a FireGL V5250 (M66)
airlied: Sir_Lewk: Dell?
Sir_Lewk: no, Lenovo T60p
airlied: used to see that on the odd Dell box, never on my T60p though, not running radeonhd
Sir_Lewk: I don't think there is actually a hardware issue, I've only started encountering it recently
Sir_Lewk: it's not readily reproducible either :S
nooop: airlied, there are a lot news about you in China.
airlied: nooop: what did I do there? :)
nooop: airlied, about the 3D of R500。
airlied: nooop: well its only a bad hack but step by step and all that :)
nooop: airlied, but people become hopefully because what you did.
airlied: nooop: its a pity r600 will be a lot harder, r500 was nice and close to r300...
nooop: airlied, well, sooner or later , it will be solved.
nooop: it's time for home in China, bye~~.
soul31: hello can you help me in resovling big problem with radeon 3450?
soul31: sry my english is bad:/
soul31: hello - anyone there?
soul31: ok here is a problem - i bought a radeon sapphire hd 3450 a week ago in poland
soul31: and mostly motherboard ignores this card and goes to integrated graphic
soul31: it works really rarelly ...
soul31: my motherboard is gigabyte ga m55 plus s3g/2.1
soul31: card is working fine in my friend computer
soul31: and other cards works in my computer ...
bridgman: soul31: have you tried using the BIOS startup settings to turn off integrated graphics ?
udovdh: fwiw: http://core.tweakers.net/nieuws/52537/amd-komt-binnen-twee-maanden-met-radeon-hd-3830.html
udovdh: (amd will release hd3830 within two monyhs...)
dmb: libv: still have the memory restore issue when using a framebuffer if that helps at all
lvella: should not the RANDR_SIGNAL_FORMAT property be read-write?
lvella: I have a VGA port that I connect to a tv with an adapter
lvella: It should be possible to define the output signal as video composite
lvella: libv, hi, it's me, lucas__ from yesterday
lvella: how the driver chooses the signal type to send to each port?
lvella: to setup tv-out, or any type of dual head, is it needed to create 2 device sections on xorg.conf?
yangman: lvella: no. xrandr should be taking care of it
lvella: so xrand would be a good interface to define signal format output of a connector
lvella: in my case, I need to say that I want video composite to be output via my VGA connector
yangman: that, I don't know
yangman: in any case, those signalling formats aren't supported yet
lvella: hum, ok
yangman: but, the font end control will still have to be done with xrandr
yangman: if I'm not mistaken, the direction Xorg is going towards is getting rid of xorg.conf completely
lvella: but how the properties set via xrand are maintained between sections?
lvella: they are maintained, aren't they?
lvella: if I set some property through xrandr, they will be lost I
lvella: if I reboot the computer
yangman: there's some shortcomings in the way xrandr is implemented right now
yangman: afaik, it doesn't have facilities to self-save a preferred layout
yangman: I don't have much experience in the area. haven't quite made the jump to 1.4
lvella: ok, thanks
lvella: I'll search about this
lvella: what exactly is this atomBIOS?
yangman: abstraction layer built into the graphics card
yangman: like your system BIOS, but only for the graphics card/subsystem
lvella: and why the code is full of #ifdef's about it? why someone would have it disabled?
yangman: radeonhd devs currently try and avoid using it if they can
yangman: instead opting to manipulate registers manually
yangman: at least, this is what I'm hearing from 2nd-hand sources
lvella: yangman, do you know radeonhd code? are you a developer?
yangman: lvella: no, unfortunately, and no
roh: hm... i wonder whats with different host archs and atombios then.
TGEN: does Linux have inttypes.h?
TGEN: and Windows?
roh: means.. does it work on ppc, mit etc or is it some metaarch?
yangman: TGEN: it's part of C99
TGEN: yangman: ok, so I assume most/all Linux distributions have it. What about MSVC?
yangman: beats me. I haven't touched MSVC since the late 90's
TGEN: src/AtomBios/includes/CD_Common_Types.h would do good to include it then
TGEN: rather than defining things on its own
agd5f: roh: atombios is platform independent. we've used them internally on ppc, etc.
ny|gentoo: hi, anybody here who can paste me his config using radeonhd?
Soul_keeper: is the 6 pin power connector on the 3870 optional ?
