fglrx fails to build against kernel 3.10
Last modified: 2013-08-01 15:20:51 EDT
Description of problem:
fglrx will not build against kernel 3.10, using kmod-catalyst, akmod-catalyst or the Catalyst downloaded from AMD website. Desktop effects crash kwin using openGL as a result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install Catalyst by any of three means -- akmod-catalyst, kmod-catalyst or amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Catalyst by any of three means -- akmod-catalyst, kmod-catalyst or amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run
Desktop effects fail, programs using openGL crash. Reinstalling amd driver in kernel 3.9 causes kernel 3.10 to not load initramfs.
Normal video and graphics functions after install
It took me two days to figure out this was a kernel issue. Once I figured that out, I booted to kernel 3.9, forced the driver install using Install Catalyst by any of three means -- akmod-catalyst, kmod-catalyst or amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run, and rebooted to the 3.10 kernel. At that point, the kernel could not load initramfs.
I rebooted to kernel 3.9, removed kernel 3.10, rebooted, reinstalled kernel 3.10. Got a notification that there was a problem building fglrx against the new kernel. I removed and blacklisted the kernel, and everything is working fine now.
We don't provide or support flgrx. You'll need to contact whomever provides you with that driver.
