Default ati-drivers-9.10 don't cooperate with xorg-server-7.1.0

Hi,

This was working just fine:

kernel 2.6.31-r3 + xorg-server-1.6.5 + ati-drivers-9.10

Now
kernel 2.6.31-r4 + xorg-server-1.7.1 + ati-drivers-9.10
fail with

(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
dlopen: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: resVgaShared
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so


Is there any fix already?

Many thanks,
Helmut.

Apparently not. The conflict lies in the ati drivers and you will have to wait
for ATI to support xorg-1.7 before upgrading.

There's a bug on b.g.o. which I read last night that has more info. Search
for xorg-server, it's near the end of the list (clearly marked)

Thanks for pointing this out to me.
There should be a warning, since, as many others found out, as well,
it's not that easier to step back to xorg-server-1.6.5

(I for myself stepped back to the radeonhd driver for my ATI card
which works with xorg-server-1.7.1)

Helmut.

There's a thread in the forum as well. Searching for fglrx it's the first
one right now, though it's titled towards nvidia. But just look inside.
there are instructions on how to revert back. However, the following rule
always holds true if you are using fglrx (and to some extent, the nvidia
driver): before updating your system, check if there's any important update
for X, and if so, please, always triple check in the forum and the web that
the new X release is supported by your drivers.

At least for fglrx, this is almost never true so the regular procedure is
to mask the packages that are about to be updated, and check again when a
new ati-drivers revision is in place.

The 9.10 release of ati-drivers is quite recent and appered after
xorg-server-1.7.0 so I had some hope.

"not that easy" ... now there's an understatement :-)

The nvidia drivers sensibly block the latest xorg-server.

But doable, as I spent some time discovering yesterday.
x11-drivers/xf86-video-psb is also affected

At least my desktop kept working.

Well, it's truly not for the newbie, but it's not complicated either.
After all, you are using ~arch, so.....

That's what blockers are for: they prevent incompatible packages from
being installed together, right? So you can choose what action of course
you want to follow. At least your system keeps working instead of throwing
you to a text console and greeting you with an undefined symbol message.

for me it was true horror because libxtst refused to build. I downgraded all
the headers, and it failed and failed and failed.

Until I remembered that I have packages for everything.... usepkg can make
life so much easier.

there is a three month dev cycle and they only work with released software. So
January is a fair guess. Maybe February. Unluckily Ubuntu is not using this X
version or they would have been a bit quicker
