rcbarnes: So, is there any estimation, no matter how rough, on when a production-ready radeonhd driver might be released? Is the driver already there for R500? The wiki seems to hint that it nearly is, but are there any serious show-stopper bugs still lingering?
ndim: rcbarnes: Non-3D production ready for me and my R5xx was in october or november - 2007.
sytse: yes, the trouble is not production-readiness but missing features :)
Temujin_: are the missing features due to missing documentation?
rcbarnes: Well, I'm glad that rapid progress is being made, then!
rcbarnes: I'll be happy to buy a decent video card with good F/OSS drivers for a change.
rah: I have some strange behaviour with git radeonhd
rah: that's the output of xrandr
rah: that's a screenshot
rah: I have two LCD monitors connected, one with DVI-D, one with VGA
rcbarnes: Oh, I forgot to ask---does the radeonhd driver support 1920x1080 output over DVI?
rah: one is 1900x1200, one is 1280x1024
rah: for some reason, though, the driver thinks it's OK for the second panel to do 1400x1050
rah: also, it seems to be very confused in general
matteo: first triangle rendered on rv770, wow
rah: as you can see from the screenshot, it's like gnome believe's there two displays on the same desktop
rah: it thinks fullscreen is 1400x1050
rah: and a panel which is normally at the bottom of the screen is half-way up
rah: as shown here:
ndim: rah: Two panels... do you have set Virtual properly in xorg.conf?
rah: ndim: erm
rah: ndim: probably not
rah: ndim: is there some instruction on how to do that?
rah: ndim: ie, what do you mean by "properly"?
ndim: To have them side by side, (1920+1280) by max(1200, 1024), i.e. Virtual 3200 1200, right?
rah: err no
rah: I don't want that
rah: I get that
ndim: Well... what *DO* you want, then?
rah: I mean, that would make my desktop larger than what the panels can display
ndim: It would give a framebuffer large enough to show a separate image on both displays.
rah: I'd like either (a) Xinerama working with one panel "LeftOf" the other, or (b) one panel working without confusion
chainsawbike: this --> http://chainsawbike.selfip.com/hosted/xorg.radeonhd is my dual screen config
chainsawbike: using xrandr
chainsawbike: does it help?
rah: chainsawbike: possibly
rah: do the xorg.conf identifiers have to be named in that way?
rah: (for the Monitor sections)
ndim: chainsawbike: Yes, it does help. I'm handing rah over to you, as you seem to know more about dual display setups than I do :)
chainsawbike: lol k
chainsawbike: i done it for consistency
chainsawbike: its what xrandr called them
rah: ndim: do I get a support ticket number? :)
rah: chainsawbike: ok
rah: chainsawbike: can you adjust the relative positioning of the displays?
rah: or is it just "LeftOf", "RightOf", etc?
chainsawbike: never wanted to do anything else... so no idea
chainsawbike: do you want to define something like left of and xx pixels down?
ndim: Or show the bottom right 1280x1024 of the 1920x1200 display on the second display?
rah: chainsawbike: yes
rah: ndim: what chainsawbike said
rah: with normal xorg.conf you can set the position of a screen in the ServerLayout section, relative to one defined at (0,0)
rah: Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen-0" 1280 853
rah: Screen "aticonfig-Screen-1" 0 0
rah: which is like
rah: Screen 1 "LeftOf, x+(1024-853), y+0"
chainsawbike: xrandr has a --pos option
chainsawbike: so it can be done
chainsawbike: i just dont know how to set statically
chainsawbike: read $ man xrandr
rah: mmm :)
rah: chainsawbike: ok, I've adjusted my configuration using yours as a reference
rah: if it all goes bang, I'm blaming you :)
chainsawbike: ... its one of those "read the manual" times
chainsawbike: Option "Position" "x y" in the monitor section will do what they want
rah: ok, it's a nearly perfect now
rah: here's the config file for you are interest:
chainsawbike: Option "Position" "x y"
chainsawbike: will do the set position thinngy
rah: that's why they're there :)
rah: oh sorry
rah: I thought you were talking about the config
rah: (that I pasted)
rah: chainsawbike: yes, thank you, I've sorted that out now :)
chainsawbike: good good :)
rah: rah@myrtle:~$ xvinfo
rah: X-Video Extension version 2.2
rah: screen #0
rah: no adaptors present
rah: patience is a virtue :)
rah: I ran glxinfo
rah: the server didn't like it :)
rah: ok, windows always pop up on the wrong display
rah: particularly mplayer et al
rah: this is a bit of an issue
rah: I've set the preferred output
rah: but they don't seem to pay attention to it
rah: any ideas?
rah: sounds is wrong :
rah: there's an option to mplayer to tell it which xinerama screen to use
rah: which isn't ideal but nevermind
rah: so, problem #2
rah: the mouse goes off the top of the screen
Dead2: You'll need to install a cat to chase it down again
rah: ha ha
rah: that's so funny
Dead2: sorry, not very helpful I know
rah: the mouse seems to exist in non-visible parts of a buffer that covers both visible displays
dodtsair: I though I would come here and see if someone knew whether radeonhd on ubuntu hardy heron could support my vga card
dodtsair: 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
Zajec: dodtsair: you may need to update radeonhd to git version
Zajec: dodtsair depends on what is included in HH
dodtsair: any way I can check?
dodtsair: git is the source code repository right?
Zajec: git means the newest avaiable version of driver
Zajec: how to chcek? just try to use it
dodtsair: yeah, that didn't work :)
Zajec: then you should update to git version... if it doesn't work, then post mail on ML with xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log
dodtsair: okay I'll go dig up the git instruction
dodtsair: thanks Zajec
Zajec: no problem :)
dodtsair: ohh I'll just add that the web site http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd#head-de92fffbebd1c4c6691d8828a8f68c57e7d4a33f says it supports my card. It further says that it is in sync with the man page. My man page doesn't list my card (RS780) so I think that basically confirms I need to go to git for the latest.
bridgman: Yep. I don't think we had launched the 780 when hardy locked down the drivers
Zajec: what can I do if rhd_dump fails on unknow device?
bridgman: what message are you getting ? Sometimes the "unknown device" message can be misleading, in that it really means "generic" rather than "unknown"
Zajec: sorry.. it's :
Zajec: rhd_dump -r 7300,78ff 1:00.0
Zajec: rhd_dump: v1.2.1, git branch audio, commit 9aabcb7d
Zajec: Unknown device: 0x1002:0x95C4 (01:00.00).
bridgman: did you build off the audio branch rather than master ? audio is older code, but I thought it should at least have 780 support
Zajec: it's master
Zajec: it's current master + one patch from Christoper
Zajec: *Christian - sorry
bridgman: ahh, so "audio" is your local branch ?
Zajec: the one you mean is original/HDMI-Audio :)
Zajec: few hours ago Christian posted patch which I applied to master
dodtsair: woohoo running at native 1920 x 1200 go radeonhd driver!
Zajec: dodtsair: :)
Zajec: dodtsair: hopefull you will see some basic 3D soon
dodtsair: yeah well I plan to get myself into a lot more trouble trying to pass through a PCIe video card through xen to a virtualized XP, wish me luck :)
Zajec: that's over my knowledge
Zajec: good luck :)
edman007: hi, i see this in my xorg.conf, "(WW) RADEONHD(0): Failed to set up write-combining range (0xc0000000,0x10000000)"
edman007: how do i fix that?
stianj: is there anything to do when radeonhd thinks the monitor I connect with a DVI-VGA adapter is connected to DVI-I 1/digital?
