Nightwulf|work: hi all
plush: heya. i am having serious issues with the radeonhd driver all of a sudden
plush: not sure what changed. but suddenly, it decided there is no DPMS in my laptop and does not detect screen size properly, setting dpi to some nonsense
plush: how would i go about debugging this?
plush: this is my xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/jMA6PBnf
adamk: Was it the Xorg 7.5 upgrade that broke it, or has it worked properly since then?
plush: i wish i was sure exactly
plush: i do think the xorg 7.5 upgrade was around the time it broke
plush: but i cannot say with 100% certainty
plush: i was using a git build before. i am back to 1.3.0 now, recompiled and rebooted moments ago to make sure the module is in sync with the xorg server
adamk: Does it work properly with radeon?
plush: radeon does not seem to be available anymore...
adamk: It's definitely in ports.
plush: sorry, didn't know radeon hides under ati :)
plush: what driver do i specify in my xorg.conf, "ati" or "radeon"?
adamk: ati is just a wrapper that will load radeon.
plush: convenient :)
adamk: So 'radeon' might be a teeny-tiny bit faster.
plush: compiling. i will reboot to make extra sure there are no radeonhd bits in memory
plush: adamk: same issue
plush: xrandr -q says i have the following: LVDS connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
plush: that is 141 dpi
plush: but xdpyinfo says:
plush: dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (508x285 millimeters)
plush: that is 96 dpi
adamk: Alright, well I'm not sure then.
plush: no idea where it got that idea from
adamk: All I can really say on the matter is that you will be more likely to get support using radeon and asking on #radeon. There's not much activity on this channel (or with the radeonhd driver) these days.
plush: ah, thanks
plush: will hop over right now
adamk: Good luck.
plush: adamk: oh, before i leave - folks on #radeon helped me figure it out
plush: so thanks for the top!
