luc_: is enybody around?
luc_: it will be tv-out support in radeonhd driver or just radeon driver?
a1ex: hello. im currently running mesa 7.5, libgl 7.5 xorg-server 1.6.2 kernel 22.214.171.124 and current radeonhd on a HD4850
a1ex: but i dont get xvideo support
bridgman: do you have Option "DRI" in xorg.conf ?
a1ex: it should be available though from what i read
bridgman: and Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" ?
a1ex: DRI on, accel is exa
a1ex: glxinfo says yes on direct rendering
bridgman: what do you get as output from xvinfo ?
a1ex: screen #0, no adaptors present (xvideo extension 2.2)
bridgman: "no ports" or a bunch of info ?
a1ex: same as root
a1ex: no, nothing
bridgman: ok, can you pastebin your xorg log and dmesg output ?
bridgman: are you running debian ?
bridgman: I don't remember if arch pulled out the microcode binaries (aka evil firmware) or not; didn't think they did but dmesg output will tell us
bridgman: no microcode -> drm starts but fails to run -> no EXA or Xv acceleration
a1ex: http://pastebin.com/m307a5e18 dmesg
a1ex: http://pastebin.com/m7d2d25bf xorglog
bridgman: there are no drm messages in dmesg, which implies the xorg driver never tried to initialize it
a1ex: something to old or not built with the correct options maybe?
a1ex: i dont know where to start
bridgman: looking at xorg log now
a1ex: do i have to load drm manually in xorg.conf?
a1ex: its not in the modules section right now
bridgman: here's the offending message :
bridgman: 244.(EE) RADEONHD(0): RHDDRIVersionCheck: symbol DRIQueryVersion not available.(libdri.a is too old)
bridgman: 245.(WW) RADEONHD(0): RHDDRIPreInit: Version check failed. Disabling DRI.
bridgman: don't think I've seen that one before
a1ex: ati-dri 7.5
a1ex: recent enough?
a1ex: i forgot to mention it above
bridgman: I think this is something else - the dri protocol handler which AFAIK is HW-independent
bridgman: not sure though, checking...
bridgman: similar problem, reinstalling x server fixed the problem
a1ex: aww D:
a1ex: thanks a lot
bridgman: found a couple of other posts with similar conclusion
a1ex: oh my god. it really was that simple
bridgman: oh good ;)
