Did you install Compiz-fusion using official RPMs method posted here?

Did you rename your old /etc/X11/xorg.conf and try to recreate an aticonfig default using aticonfig commands in the help link here?

Catalyst 9.9 packages upgrade from already installed Catalyst 9.8 packages

While looking at RPM Fusion Nonfree updates-testing for Fedora 11, I noticed they had added Catalyst 9.9 packages to the Nonfree updates-testing section. I decided to go ahead and try the Nonfree updates-testing Catalyst 9.9 packages and upgrade my Catalyst 9.8 packages. The following is how I did the upgrade.

NOTE: These packages are still in testing, so do this at your own risk.


For the example below, I am personally running Fedora 11 32-bit with the PAE kernel.

1) Follow the instructions in post #1 of this thread.
2) Follow the instructions in Additional Considerations link from post #1.
3) Make sure part 1 and 2 work for your system before upgrading.
4) Update your Fedora 11 system to the latest Fedora 11 packages and reboot
Example (as root run):
Code:
yum update
5) Update to Catalyst 9.9 packages from Catalyst 9.8 packages
Example for Fedora 11 32-bit PAE kernel users (run the following line as root):
Code:
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing update kmod-catalyst-PAE xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i586 xorg-x11-drv-catalyst
Example for Fedora 11 64-bit kernel users (I haven't tried this since i'm 32-bit) (run the following line as root):
Code:
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing update kmod-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i586 xorg-x11-drv-catalyst
6) Fix SELINUX issues
Example (run the following two lines as root):
Code:
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/catalyst/libGL.so.1.2'
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/catalyst/libatiadlxx.so'
7) If you have installed the akmod-catalyst package, upgrade that also
Example (run this as root):
Code:
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing update akmod-catalyst
8) Reboot your system

More info:
It seems that disabling RandR 1.2 is still required with Catalyst 9.9 on Fedora 11. I tried re-enabling it (by setting the value to TRUE) but then I would get the display system lockups again. (You should already have disabled it in step 2 above by following the instructions in Additional Considerations link from post #1.)

HI, my problem maybe simliar to this problem

Hi, I'm on a fresh install of Fedora 11. Last night I decided to install kmod-catalyst and it completely broke Xorg. I check the logs and it had to do with radeon module loading along side with fglrx. I did the necessary steps to block radeon from loading. It worked. I can login and once I reach the desktop, it froze. It happenes on every reboot. My log directory is mounted in tmpfs. However I was able to make hard copies of all my logs. I check them and in dmesg, fglrx was complaining that it was trying to do something and it failed. I didn't take notice and rebooted a few times trying to figure out what was causing the problem. Now I check my logs and THE error has disappeared but the problem still exists. I will show you my logs if anything appears relevant. I'm just coming from F10 but I didn't upgrade, I just format and install F11. I have check all my logs since, none of them show any errors, neither kernel panic. It all seems, it should work. I'm on KDE 4.3.1, and not sure if KDE is the culprit.



------------------------------
All software are pain in the butt including but not limited to windowz.....

The latest kernel 2.6.30.8-64 for f11x86_64 has stopped desktop effects from working leaving me with no 3d graphics, but my ati control panel is still working.
I am using the previous kernel until i find out to fix this with new kernel.
I know the same question has already been asked the only difference would be the kernel involved, i have spend hours reading pages here and have to ask for your help on this.
my previous post on this matter:
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...g+ati&page=244


You have my thanks in advance for your constructive help.


EDIT:

Problem sorted.

Updating to 9.9 gives slow graphics. GLXinfo gives me a strange error.

Quote:
glxinfo
name of display: :0.0

Major opcode of failed request: 135 (GLX)

Current serial number in output stream: 17
UPDATE
Seems that for some reason the correct kmod isn't loaded:

I was using akmod to build the module, but I've also tried with the module provided with rpmfusion with no results. Any idea?

UPDATE2:
Just noticed that the xorg-catalyst is labelled f11 and the kmod f11.1 -> Might this be the cause?

UPDATE3:
Got to rpmfusion, downloaded 9.8 and forced a downgrade. Everything is fine now, just not that recent.

Looks like Catalyst 9.9 was moved to regular RPM Fusion nonfree/updates now (it was in RPM Fusion nonfree/updates-testing before).

A regular "yum update" worked for me now and i'm running the latest kernel and ATI Catalyst 9.9 on Fedora 11 32-bit with compiz-fusion:

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux server1 2.6.30.8-64.fc11.i686.PAE #1 SMP Fri Sep 25 04:56:58 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

$ rpm -qa|grep catalyst |sort
akmod-catalyst-9.9-1.fc11.i686
kmod-catalyst-2.6.30.8-64.fc11.i686.PAE-9.9-1.fc11.1.i686
kmod-catalyst-PAE-9.9-1.fc11.1.i686
xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-9.9-1.fc11.i586
xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs-9.9-1.fc11.i586
These SELINUX fixes may be required after upgrading:
(For more information on these SELINUX commands, see the Additional Considerations Link at the bottom of post #1):
(Run the following two lines as root):
Code:
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/catalyst/libGL.so.1.2'
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/catalyst/libatiadlxx.so'
For other help suggestions, see the Additional Considerations Link at the bottom of post #1.

I also did a normal update but I'm on 64bit. I guess I'll keep along with 9.8 as 9.9 doesn't bring relevant features or bug fixes.

I get the same problem on x86_64 and a Radeon HD 3200 on my notebook

Code:
yum downgrade kmod-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i586 xorg-x11-drv-catalyst
worked fine(as a temporary solution) =)

hey guys, does this driver support ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330? I looked at ATI's website for Linux drivers, but they don't seem to list anything for the HD 4330 under Mobility Radeon. If I go to Radeon, there is listed "HD 4350 Series", but I'm assuming that this is for the desktop version of the card. Should this "HD 4350 Series" driver still work?

Yes. In doubt try it. Fedora is about experimenting.

I allmost broke my F11. I got HP Compaq nx6325 with Ati Xpress 1150 (200M). I went thru first post and thru 3564. But when I went thru 3564, this line:
Code:
aticonfig --initial
In konsole, that sayd to me some thing like that "No sutch device" and this line:
Code:
aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE"
Gave me same answer. After that I thout, that catalyst drivers dont support my grafic chip. But I hoped that it may work. I made restart and when Fedora booted up, there was no more this Fedora bubble in middle of screen filling up with white milk, but there was text "Fedora 11" in right side bottom corner of screen. And three lines coming from left, first is blue, on top of that is lightblue and on top of that is white, they all are raceing to right corner, where is Fedora 11. And when they all get to Fedora 11, screen goes black for short time and after that some random code goes over screen. And when code finally stops, I can type text, I tried "login" and "restart", but nothing happends. Then I tried CTRL+ALT+DEL, and linux came into live and send thous kill signals everywhere with "[OK]" and made restart.

I tried this init 3 thing after that. In grub I typed "e" and selected kernel line and at wery end in that line I typed "3". Pressed Enter and pressing "b" linux started up in konsole and I managed to log in as root. Typed in:
Code:
yum remove *catalyst*
After that I made restart. And Fedora started up, without bubble, but X started working with bad resolution and desktop started working allso with bad resolution and with wery small font size. Went to konsole:
Code:
su -
mv /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.backup /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Made restart after that. Fedora started up with good resolution and with good font size. Onely startup is without Fedora bubble, i got now thous three lines on top of eachother raceing to Fedora 11.

Some info about system:
Code:
uname -a
Linux minu.arvuti 2.6.30.8-64.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Sep 25 04:43:32 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

30:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g (rev 01)
Right now I noticed, that in first post, there is:
( All ATI cards below the HD series are unsupported )

Clearly my mistake, that I didnt notice that before. But when I went checking under that link, and I chouse my Integrated Xpress 200M, I got this page:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...1&lang=English

And in that list, there is ATI Radeon Xpress Series. But this driver seems to be quite old. Eny sugsestions, how I got some hardware acceleration?
Im sorry about my english, not my first language, still learning.
