what is necessary to patch to current xorg-server? maybe i can help you ;)

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-06-28 04:55

you have to use [xorg112] repo:

Vi0l0, xorg-server<1.13.0 not found.

I added 4.6 kernel patch and switched to DKMS.
Can someone confirm if its working fine?
Don't have supported hw, can only tell that it's compiling well

I will work on 4.6 kernel support for hd234k on weekend - should be simple patch copy paste

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-01-20 10:25

- kernel 4.4 support
- gcc5 support
- fixing lib32/dri symlink

There was one confirmation that it works fine on gcc5 so it's finally updated. also [catalyst-hd234k] was updated with these changes

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-01-04 20:16

- just a little change that should fix 4.3 kernel support, gcc49 is still in dependencies list

more important, testing, updated driver is here:
- it now has 4.4 kernel support - to do this I completely removed block_all_signals function as it was completely removed from the kernel, I just don't know what impact will it have, there's a little possibility that it won't work at all :).
Plus we still don't know if my previous testing update which removed gcc49 dep endency is working.

Is there a "daredevil" who can perform tests on this testing -33.1, at least on gcc5?

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-22 21:07

I got another driver for testing purposes, this one should remove gcc49 from the deps and use.

I'm unable to test and this is pretty important, please perform some basic tests.
There's little possibility that X server won't start with it.

Heres link to the source:

thanks lharding, that's all I wanted to hear, sorry for late answer

updated to 13.1-32:
- adding support for up to 4.3 linux kernel
- adding custom ACPI files for events handling
- you need gcc49 package to build modules for kernel >= 4.2

BTW i was able to apply amd changes from crimson 15.11 to catalyst 15.9 and gain gcc5 support. Its more than probable that it could be also done with this package (it just will be a little harder, since there was a lot of changes within this almost 3 years). I will surelly do this some day, just don't know when it will come

@Vi0L0: I haven't had the time for extensive testing, but your patch for 4.2/4.3 kernel is working for me on my Thinkpad T400 (HD3450). I do have an oddity where coming back from sleep or another VT leaves the screen blank until 'poked' by changing resolution with xrandr, but that was happening with the previous version as well.

Everything else (2D accel, enough 3D accel for glxgears and Minecraft) seem to be working fine. Drop me a line if there are specific tests you'd like me to try.

Thank you for making it so much more possible to keep this nice old machine useful!
