xkeyboard-config for pkgsrc modular X.org

Hello,

I'm now using the wip/xkeyboard-config package with wip/modular-xorg-server14.
This was the first time I didn't have to muck around with my keyboard
configuration!
Perhaps we should switch to xkeyboard-config in pkgsrc?

Thinkpad Z61P (ATI FireGL V5200 via PCI Express)?

Hi *,

Does X11 (xorg) work on this system - has anyone see it live?
I ask, because I see V5200 being supported by X, but also found
a report for a crash on a T61p b/c of PCIe/AGP confusion.

Regards,
  Frank

The crash has nothing to do with PCIe/AGP. See port-amd64/37043.

I got X working on T61p, but only with vesa driver; nv starts up
with a black screen and X taking 100% of cpu. But it could just
be that the experimental G80 support in nv driver doesn't work
correctly for me, and nothing to do with the system HW support.

If Z61p has has the same graphics bridge (Intel product 2a01),
you'll be out of luck with agp. I'm not even sure if a driver
that looks like agp to userland can be written for the 965PM
gfx bridge, though -- nor am I sure if it is even needed.

My cursory reading of the docs seem to indicate that the bridge
already provides a physical range of addresses, and writes to
those go directly to the gfx adapter, so all X would have to do is
map those addresses for itself. But I'm really new to this all,
so I may be way off.

I experience similarities on a R61 with a Quadro NVS 140m GPU; using XFree86
it blanks me the screen out with any feasible driver. With Xorg from pkgsrc 
(in v1.3.0.0) it at least works using the vesa driver for non-widescreen
resolutions up to 1280x1024.

That seems independent of the NetBSD version (I tried 4.0_RC1 and current as
v4.99.31) in both, 32 and 64 bit mode and in both variants each, with and
w/o SMP.

Howerver, I'm at last using an xorg.conf I found for a Ubuntu system that
was said to work. It may also do under XFree86 in the versions shipped with
NetBSD (4.5.0) and newer ones considering the insertion of similar configuration
tweaks. But that's only for what considers the vesa driver.

What seems more sure for me is that the nv driver doesn't work under any
condition.

RadeonHD from opensuse - to NetBSD


Hello!

Suse and Ati do great work and in short period of time, radeonhd bugs are
fixed mostly. Radeonhd driver currently works if i connect an extenal
monitor on my fedora-installed notebook.

I would like to switch NetBSD as sson as possible without using ANY binary
driver. 4.99.31 is runing using vesa mode but it does not support 1280x800
mode.

Now, i am asking "how to implement radeonhd driver to use in NetBSD". As you
know, the original driver is for Xorg while NetBSD uses XF86.

Regards,

Good news... I'm currently using the radeonhd driver (a snapshot
from 20070920) downloaded from the debian repository.

I had to add the PCI ID in order to make it start, pkg is available at:

http://www.netbsd.org/~xtraeme/xf86-video-radeonhd.tar.gz

Re: RadeonHD from opensuse - to NetBSD


Well, i was checking suse repository occasonally, and it was NOT working a
week ago. Just tried today, and it worked.

Do you think the only difference (what suse team did) is just to collect PCI
ID from users? I mean could it be OK to use suse source by editing master
site section in your package ?

Thank you in advance fro your help.

Regards,

The collection of PCI IDs was just a temporary fix while the Atombios
parser was being imported. I don't think it's in use anymore in the driver.

I'm currently using the radeonhd driver from the official git
repository. As long as the functionality provided will not be optimal
for your everyday use, I would recommend to wait before installing it as
a package.

(Although, that's just my opinion, and of course I would welcome the
presence of the package in pkgsrc, since it has to be done anyway).

Hope this clarifies a bit,

Re: RadeonHD from opensuse - to NetBSD


Just an update about this... I have now modular Xorg environment, it works
now. I'm running kde on Xorg using vesa driver.

1- I have used Juan's package. It compiled radeonhd 20070920 sources. It
didn't work.

2- I have got more recent sources from suse. It works perfectly if i and
only if i connect an extenal monitor too. I mean both LCD and external LCD
works. If i do not connect external monitor, Xorg fails to start.

I think there is a problem within here in code. It detects external monitor
as primary AND THEN it powers on local one.

I'm php programmer, not C+ but maybe someone has an idea to fix that... It
looks like following codes powers up monitors:

rhd_driver.c. Lines  976-1014

********************************************
    Crtc1 = rhdPtr->Crtc[0];
    Crtc2 = rhdPtr->Crtc[1];

    switch (PowerManagementMode) {
    case DPMSModeOn:
	if (Crtc1->Active) {
	    Crtc1->Power(Crtc1, RHD_POWER_ON);

	    for (Output = rhdPtr->Outputs; Output; Output = Output->Next)
		if (Output->Power && Output->Active && (Output->Crtc == Crtc1))

[WORKED] RadeonHD from opensuse - to NetBSD [WORKED]


Hello!

This message is to confirm that RadeonHD driver on my notebook does its job
and i have 1280x800 screen.

This is Ati's one of the most recent card, Mobility Radeon HD 2300 and it is
working now.

The way to work: 

1- I used Juan's pkgsrc package to install older version. 

2- I deinstalled package. I inserted suse src into distfiles.

3- I disabled md5 check, and compiled.

Of course i can send binary driver too. I use 4.99.31

Regards,
