Bug Description

[Impact]

 * Hybrid systems with ATI/intel GPUs using fglrx get a segmentation fault in X when using 12.10. In stock 12.04.1 these systems were working fine.

 * This bug represents a severe regression from precise to quantal, since is crashing on startup

 * The proposed patch updates the driver to version 13.2beta3 of upstream which seems to resolve this issue

[Test Case]

 * Get an hybrid ATI/intel system.
   Install quantal: The system should boot fine
   Install the proprietary fglrx package and reboot: The X server crashes on startup

[Regression Potential]

 * This solution does not need any change on the intel driver (as a previous workaround needed).
 * No regressions have been reported so far using this most recent fglrx upstream, by the people affected by this bug

======

After installing the latest fglrx-updates package on Ubuntu 12.10 (fglrx-updates_9.000-0ubuntu3_amd64) I have the same issue that was present before AMD fixed switchable graphics on PowerXpress 4.0 cards (such as my HD 6470M coupled with the intel HD Graphics 3000 of my intel Core i5-2430M). The X server has a segmentation fault and the low graphics mode is activated.

WORKAROUND: fglrx-installer-13 2:13.101~beta-0ubuntu1~xedgers~quantal1 from:
https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=quantal

WORKAROUND: Follow carefully the instructions here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI#WORKAROUND

As per Nick Andrik, this is a version regression of xserver-xorg-video-intel from 2.20.2 (working and in below mentioned PPA) and 2.20.3. The regression commit is http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel/commit/?id=05dcc5f1699ba90fc14c50882e8d4be89bc4a4f9 .

Upstream fglrx has published a new version (> 13.1 ) of the driver which seems to solve this issue. No need to revert the commit in the Intel driver any more.

ATTENTION:
1. If you choose the integrated GPU (via Catalyst or via amdconfig --px-igpu) and your X server crashes on startup, then your are probably affected by this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/1088220

2. If your system includes an old ATI GPU card (Radeon HD 2x00 3x00 4x00) which is not supported any more by fglrx drivers, then probably you suffer from this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/1058040
Subscribe and comment there please.

If the X server loads (so you see no low graphics mode window) but you get no menu bars, window decorations, etc, then press Ctrl+Shift+T to open a terminal, write in there:
unity --replace &
and post a comment with the result.

The system is a Hp g6-1279sl notebook with a discrete AMD HD 6470M card and an Intel Core i5-2430M CPU with Intel HD graphics 3000. I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 desktop 64 bit version. The driver (both the 12.9 beta on AMD site and the 12-9 beta driver from the Quantal Quetzal fglrx-installer-updates repository) worked correctly on Ubuntu 12.4.1 64-bit.
Using fglrx (fglrx_9.000-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb) instead of fglrx-updates doesn't solve this problem.

I have an switchable graphic system with AMD and Intel cards.
Everything worked fine until ad update of the Intel Video driver, that cause the segmentation fault in X.
The old driver before that update was xf86-video-driver-2.20.0, the updated driver provided by the Update repo is 2.20.3

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update system normaly from repo-udate
2.install openSUSE-2012-559 update
3.reboot system
Actual Results:
System start in console mode, X segmentation fault

Downgrade the driver using zypper in -f xf86-video-intel-2.20.0-1.5.1 fix the problem.

I can confirm the same issue is happening here. Obviously trying to use the 8.x drivers would not help because they do not support the new version of xorg.

Marco Vuano, thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please execute the following command, as it will automatically gather debugging information, in a terminal:
apport-collect -p fglrx-installer 1068404

Sorry about that. Saw the previous email and thought I was helping out. I
am having the exact same issue as this bug reports, however, so creating a
new bug would be duplicitous.

Gareth, regarding your comments https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer-updates/+bug/1068404/comments/9 :

No problem. :)

>"I am having the exact same issue as this bug reports..."

One would not want to assume this. Xorg issues can be hardware dependent. For example, similar backtraces on different hardware, but different root causes. Hence, this report is only focusing on Marco Vauno's xorg backtrace and hardware vendor ID until a developer notes otherwise. As well, the link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/BestPractices#X.2BAC8-Reporting.Focus_on_One_Issue is from the Ubuntu X Team's (maintainers of fglrx-installer) official debugging page. So, if you do not want to follow their directions which advise you what to do, as requested of you in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer-updates/+bug/1068404/comments/8 , then your issue may not get addressed.

>"so creating a new bug would be duplicitous."

See above.

Thank you for your understanding.

I can confirm that the xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.20.0-0~andrik1_amd64.deb from Nick Andrick's PPa is enough to solve the issue with the fglrx-updates_9.000-0ubuntu3_amd64 from the official quantal/restricted repository. The driver is working correctly now, but the discrete GPU has to be used in order to use Unity 3D (the Intel driver has problem with 3d acceleration when the fglrx driver is installed, but this another bug not strictly related to this one).

Are you saying that the latest driver fixes the issues?

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

I would like to point out that, since the bug was originally found on Ubuntu Desktop 12.10 64 bit edition, I am still using this version of Ubuntu to verify if it has been solved, so my report is about the state of the bugs on Ubuntu Desktop 12.10. Users of Ubuntu 13.04 may still find that some of the bugs similar to the ones I previously described are still not solved..l

I installed the new beta of fglrx without installing a non default intel
driver on 13.04 and it works, there are some other bugs in this driver
thought. On high performance mode can't use dual head for example but the
initial bug is fixed.

I can confirm as well. I updated the intel drivers and I have a desktop on 13.04. I'm using an HP Pavilion G4 2123 TX (Intel/AMD hybrid AMD Radeon HD 7600M). I can also confirm that dual head does not work at all (glitchy/flickering screen).

In 13.04, drivers install smoothly. The dual head situation is not working (e.g. glitching/flickering desktop).

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

As expected, these new drivers (whose version is the same: 2:13.200-0ubuntu1) show no significant regressions regarding the solved bugs I talked about. Is the dual head situation the same on Ubuntu 13.04?

It is so. Dual head is still broken... I do not know if this is an Ubuntu issue or an fglrx issue at this point. 12.10 did dual head with fglrx for me prior to me switching to 13.04.

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

Is there a bug regarding this dual head problem on Ubuntu 13.04? If not, it could be useful to file a new bug so that Ubuntu developers (and hopefully also AMD's ones) are correctly informed about this issue.

I filed a bug report on AMD's bug tracker. I don't know what else to do about this as it's hard to describe what is happening.

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

Filing on AMD's bug tracker is the right thing to do, if you want you can also file here on Launchpad (try using Apport/ubuntu-bug).

I absolutely have no experience in this and probably would require some more help in the direction, if possible.

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

If you have the dual head bug with the drivers provided by the fglrx or the fglrx-updates package, the command to file a new bug should be
ubuntu-bug fglrx
(or fglrx-updates)
but if you are experiencing this bug only with the drivers downloaded from AMD's site then I think you should not file a new bug here on Launchpad (I apologize for providing incorrect information before).
Anyway, with the 13.9 drivers (2:13.152-0ubuntu1) there is no significant regression reagarding all the three bugs reported by me, and since they are not beta drivers I think they could be useful if offered through the fglrx-updates package, unless they have other important regressions.

Hi Marco,

13.9 is supposedly based on an older fglrx driver according to this post: http://devgurus.amd.com/message/1300002

I will not be filing a bug on Ubuntu as I don't use fglrx-updates package from Ubuntu. Last time I tried those drivers on 12.10, the results were disastrous.

A comment: I could manage the full resolution of my Samsung laptop only with the solution here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/205112/how-do-i-get-amd-intel-hybrid-graphics-drivers-to-work

(one million thanks). But my main problem was that the open-source driver was not giving me the correct screen resolution, otherwise I would have happily stay there. Is anyone on this bug aware of where I can check that one? I am willing to help with the open source drivers testing, if possible.

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

@Romano Giannetti:The bug treated here is related to the binary Catalyst drivers, if you have the bug you mentioned with the open source drivers of the Ubuntu repositories you can file a new bug here on Launchpad, you can also report bugs about open source drivers on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/.

P.S.: of course, the new Catalyst 13.10 beta drivers work fine regarding the main bug of this report and the other bugs I found.

@Marco: you're right --- wrong place. But if anyone would arrive here on trying to solve a problem similar to mine: I can use the free drivers simply removing the nomodesetting flag from the boot command line (which was necessary to boot the installation USB). Thanks.

13.10 beta and still the same problems. Really considering a downgrade to 12.10...

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

No significant regression also with the 13.11 beta drivers (version 2:13.200-0ubuntu1), as expected.

13.11 beta did not fix the dual monitor issues. Switched back to open source radeon drivers which does work.

could anyone point me to the dual head bug on the amd site? and, did maybe anyone come up with a workaround for it? I am using a laptop with a second screen attached and even if the laptop screen is off the secondary screen does not come out of sleep alive, and I get a black screen after logging into the system...

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

@kpijarski: The bug niniendowarrior talked about is this
http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=848
I don't know how to solve your problem. I'm using the fglrx drivers version 13.11 beta version 6 (2:13.250-0ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit) and only the secondary monitor to have its full resolution and I'm fine, even when resuming from suspend mode.
Have you checked the cable you are using and if you are outputting a supported mode to your monitor? In case you don't see any supported modes on the "Monitor" window you should use xrandr and create a custom mode.

Anyway, no need to say that the new drivers don't show any regression regarding the main bug here and the other bugs I mentioned.

@kpijarski and @vuanomarco

That bug is the right one. There is no workaround. The developer at AMD I spoke to several months back also expressed skepticism in having a fix for that. The only way I could get the second monitor to work is by using mirror mode which is absolutely useless. I'm now on open source radeon drivers which work but the power management stinks, but what can I do? I have not experienced the waking up issue with the second screen, but for what its worth, I don't think it has anything to do with the cable.

@vuanomarco and @niniendowarior

Until upgrading to 13.10 everything worked fine for me - even with an external monitor attached to my dell inspiron 7520 (with a radeon hd 7700m series card). After the upgrade I got a black screen after logging into unity and was able track it back to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/compiz/+bug/1054257 (compiz opengl plugin crashes with Fatal: glXQueryExtensionsString is NULL for screen 0 message). I have no idea why it suddenly cropped up.
I even reinstalled the entire system to see whether it changes anything, all to no avail.
Right now I am running on an UEFI install with GPT partition table and this last problem might be connected to that (although AMD claims to have added UEFI support to their driver), but I can't be sure, because I had the blank screen problem before reformatting the hard disk.

Marco Vuano (vuanomarco) wrote :

@niniendowarrior:if you want to try the new dynamic power management on the open source drivers you should add
radeon.dpm=1
to the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT

sudo update-grub
as specified on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver

You should probably also set the CPUfreq governor to "Performance" if you need the maximum performance from the open source drivers(you can use the cpufreq-set command or install the "indicator-cpufreq" indicator).

@kpijarski: if you're using the drivers from the official Ubuntu repositories, I suggest you to file a new bug here on Launchpad (using ubuntu-bug should help you somewhat). If you are instead using the drivers from AMD site you should file a bug on the unofficial ATI bugzilla (http://ati.cchtml.com/). I think you should also try the open source drivers, installing the glamor-egl package if it is not already instaled and eventually enabling dynamic power management (follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver, which should be the same as the one I suggested above), and see if the problem persists.

The attached Xorg.1.log is for the binary version, but I get basically the same error with the xedgers version.

@naught101: this bug report originally was referring to Ubuntu 12.10 and was later extended to Ubuntu 13.04, however I don't think it has yet been extended to Ubuntu 13.10 (it is not mentioned in the table above). Anyway, the bug is similar to the one I reported, but by watching the Xorg log file, it seems that the intel driver is not found at all. Since you are using a preliminary version of the 3.12 kernel, I would suggest using the stable 3.12 version. Furthermore, you should use an up-to-date xserver-xorg-video-intel package and mesa package (you can try the ones from oibaf's repository) . Anyway, I suspect that the Catalyst driver only supports the kernel and intel driver versions found in the Ubuntu repositories.

So, I removed all my PPA, downgraded to the default saucy kernel, added the oibaf PPA, and re-installed the fglrx-updates drivers (also tried the fglrx package). I'm still getting the same problem.

@naught101:I would suggest using the default intel drivers and mesa version with the default kernel as well, I think the new drivers should be used with the new kernel you were using, this is why I recommended them in the first place.
If you still have this bug with all the packages from the default Ubuntu repository you can file a new bug on Launchpad.

No regressions on the 13.11 beta V9.4 drivers (version 2:13.250-0ubuntu1) as well.

In case someone was wondering, no regressions on the 13.12 drivers (version 2:13.251-0ubuntu1) either.

Marco Vuano, thank you for your testing. Could you please execute the following in a terminal and post the results to this report:
lsb_release -rd && apt-cache policy fglrx-*
