Xorg Drivers

Introduction to Xorg Drivers

The Xorg Drivers page contains the instructions for building Xorg drivers that are necessary in order for Xorg Server to take the advantage of the hardware that it is running on. At least one input and one video driver is required for Xorg Server to start.

[Note]

Note

If you are unsure which video hardware you have, you can use lspci from pciutils-3.3.0 to find out which video hardware you have and then look at the descriptions of the packages in order to find out which driver you need.

[Note]

Note

In addition to the drivers listed below, there are several other drivers for very old hardware that may still be relevant. Instructions for building these now unmaintained drivers may be found in a prior version of BLFS: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/7.6/x/x7driver.html

Xorg ATI Driver-7.5.0

Introduction to Xorg ATI Driver

The Xorg ATI Driver package contains the X.Org Video Driver for ATI Radeon video cards including all chipsets ranging from R100 to R900 and the newer RAxx chipsets.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 platform.

[Note]

Note

For Direct Rendering to work with newer Radeon Cards (R300 and later chipsets), you need to enable the r300, r600 and radeonsi Gallium drivers at MesaLib-10.3.4 build time. Also, some cards require Firmware to be available when the kernel driver is loaded. Firmware can be obtained from this site. See "Kernel Configuration for additional firmware" below.

Package Information

Xorg ATI Driver Dependencies

Required

Xorg-Server-1.16.2 (recommended to be built with glamor enabled)

[Note]

Note

Glamor is required for "Southern Islands" and later GPUs but optional for R300 to R700, Evergreen and "Northern Islands" GPUs - see the link under "Glamor Acceleration" below.

User Notes: http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/xorg-ati-driver

Kernel Configuration

Enable the following options in the kernel configuration and recompile the kernel if necessary:

Device Drivers  --->
  Graphics support --->
    Direct rendering Manager --->
      ATI Radeon: Y or M

Kernel Configuration for additional firmware

If you need to add firmware, install the file(s) and then point to them in the kernel configuration and recompile the kernel if necessary. To find out which firmware you need, consult the Decoder ring for engineering vs marketing names. Download any firmware for your card which is named like: <ENGINEERING_NAME>_rlc.bin, etc. Note that for R600 and R700 family, generic R600_rlc.bin and R700_rlc.bin are necessary in adition to the model specific firmware, while for later generations (Evergreen, "Northern Islands" and probably "Southern Islands") you need the BTC_rlc.bin in adition to the model specific firmware. Below is an example for Radeon HD6470, which is "Northern Islands" GPU with a network card that also requires the firmware:

CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/BTC_rlc.bin radeon/CAICOS_mc.bin radeon/CAICOS_me.bin
radeon/CAICOS_pfp.bin radeon/CAICOS_smc.bin rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"
[Note]

Note

CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE should all be on one line. It is shown above as two lines for presentation only.

[Tip]

Tip

You can check dmesg output after boot to see which firmware is missing.

Installation of Xorg ATI Driver

Install Xorg ATI Driver by running the following commands:

./configure $XORG_CONFIG &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Glamor Acceleration

Glamor is an acceleration library which uses cards' 3D capabilities to accelerate 2D rendering. Glamor acceleration is required for Radeon "Southern Islands" GPUs which use "radeonsi" Gallium3D driver from MesaLib-10.3.4. To see which cards fall under "Southern Islands" category, read the Decoder ring for engineering vs marketing names. Please note that Glamor acceleration can be used with other chips as well, from the R300 onwards, but it has not been tested recently.

Glamor acceleration is not enabled by default for chipsets that don't use "radeonsi" Gallium3D driver. You have to use a xorg.conf file to enable it. To enable Glamor for cards other than "Southern Islands" and later, create the following /etc/X11/xorg.conf as the root user:

cat >> /etc/X11/xorg.conf << "EOF"
Section "Module"
        Load "dri2"

libvdpau-0.8

Introduction to libvdpau

The libvdpau package contains a library which implements the VDPAU library.

VDPAU (Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix) is an open source library (libvdpau) and API originally designed by Nvidia for its GeForce 8 series and later GPU hardware targeted at the X Window System This VDPAU API allows video programs to offload portions of the video decoding process and video post-processing to the GPU video-hardware.

Currently, the portions capable of being offloaded by VDPAU onto the GPU are motion compensation (mo comp), inverse discrete cosine transform (iDCT), VLD (variable-length decoding) and deblocking for MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 ASP (MPEG-4 Part 2), H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and VC-1, WMV3/WMV9 encoded videos. Which specific codecs of these that can be offloaded to the GPU depends on the version of the GPU hardware; specifically, to also decode MPEG-4 ASP (MPEG-4 Part 2), Xvid/OpenDivX (DivX 4), and DivX 5 formats, a GeForce 200M (2xxM) Series (the eleventh generation of Nvidia's GeForce graphics processing units) or newer GPU hardware is required.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 platform.
