[SOLVED] Radeon --> Intel i915 breaks compiz; blank screen

Postby filiusfob » 2012-12-27 06:45

Hi,
I'm a long-time listener, first-time caller, etc. Please forgive me if I post this in the wrong place or something.

---------------
SITUATION
---------------

The main problem is that I cannot get compiz to work. It will run without error messages if I launch it from a terminal, but will not really render anything. Sometimes it shows the desktop with icons (eg when started from shell on an already running X session) but that's it; they icons do not respond to the cursor. Usually it just leaves the screen with a flat colour (eg when started from gdm). If I restart gdm and log in, the first screen is the pastel blue background, which I used to get for a few seconds, but then instead of rendering the desktop, the screen just goes black. All the while, it continues to render the mouse pointer.

Metacity works just fine, on the other hand, as does xcompmgr.

The funny thing is that the X log reports no errors or warnings (see attachment) and says DRI is set up, and the script compiz-check (which I picked up somewhere – not sure how up-to-date it is) reports everything as being OK. On the other hand, driconf starts with an error message saying there are no “configurable direct-renderable devices”, and xdriinfo reports:
“Screen 0: not direct rendering capable.”
glxinfo reports:
“direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)”
(setting that environment variable doesn't seem to produce any extra information, by the way.)

Note, it's not the case that windows appear without borders; nothing appears except the mouse pointer which works.

I've hunted around for a solution but not found one. Perhaps my search terms have been poor. Elsewhere on the web I've found people with this problem, but who simply wanted to switch off compiz (I would like it to work again), or others who had problems with the fglrx Radeon driver that I'm am trying to revert from and return to the intel driver.


------------
HISTORY
------------

My machine is an Acer netbook with an Intel graphics chipset, which uses the i915 kernel module and the xorg driver in the package xserver-xorg-video-intel. This has all worked with compiz for two years until recently.

I also have a newer HP netbook which I've tried to migrate my file-system over to by swapping over the hdd. I've done this already through four netbooks over the years, often with little trouble, and the HP was to be my fifth.

At one point I tried to put the hdd in the HP which required a proprietary Radeon "Catalyst" driver, installed by running an executable. It produces a module called “fglrx”, though of course that won't load on the Acer which has an Intel GPU. I got the accelerated graphics working successfully in the HP under linux, but had to give up and revert back to the older Acer for other reasons (the HP has thermal management problems). At that point, X wasn't working on the Acer. In trying to get it working again, I discovered on the web that the proprietary Radeon driver overwrites some contents of some xorg packages and that this must be accounted for.

I did a dist-upgrade at that point with /etc/apt/sources.list pointing to the stable packages and this fixed the problem; presumably it replaced those bits of xorg that had been overwritten. Apart from what's written below, my Debian installation has not been altered from that state since then.

A few weeks later I attempted a second go at transferring the hdd to the HP and had to give up again due to the HP's crappiness. The hdd went back to the older Acer once more, and again X wasn't working.

At that point, with the knowledge that the proprietary Radeon driver had probably overwritten bits of the X installation in the HP, plus the fact that I could not (or would not) dist-upgrade again, I reinstalled several xorg packages with "apt-get install --reinstall..." option in the expectation that this would overwrite the fiddling that the proprietary Radeon driver had done. That, along with deleting xorg.conf, got X going again, but not compiz. Here are my xserver packages:
Code: Select all
dpkg -l "*xserver*" | grep ii
ii  x11-xserver-utils                             7.6+3                             X server utilities
ii  xserver-common                                2:1.11.1.902-1                    common files used by various X

ii  xserver-xorg-dev                              2:1.4.2-10.lenny1                 Xorg X server - development
ii  xserver-xorg-input-all                        1:7.5+8+squeeze1                  the X.Org X server -- input
ii  xserver-xorg-input-evdev                      1:2.3.2-6                         X.Org X server -- evdev input

ii  xserver-xorg-input-mouse                      1:1.5.0-2                         X.Org X server -- mouse input
ii  xserver-xorg-input-synaptics                  1.2.2-2                           Synaptics TouchPad driver for X
ii  xserver-xorg-input-wacom                      0.10.5+20100416-1                 X.Org X server -- Wacom
ii  xserver-xorg-video-intel                      2:2.13.0-7                        X.Org X server -- Intel i8xx, i9xx


Figuring that compiz might itself be fiddling with files, I then purged compiz and reinstalled the packages. That didn't fix compiz. Here are my compiz packages:
Code: Select all
dpkg -l "*compiz*" | grep ii
ii  cairo-dock-compiz-icon-plugin                 2.1.3.10-3                        Cairo-dock - Compiz icon
ii  compiz-core                                   0.8.4-4                           OpenGL window and compositing
ii  compiz-fusion-plugins-extra                   0.8.4-2                           Compiz Fusion plugins - extra
ii  compiz-fusion-plugins-main                    0.8.4-2+b1                        Compiz Fusion plugins - main
ii  compiz-gnome                                  0.8.4-4                           OpenGL window and compositing
ii  compiz-gtk                                    0.8.4-4                           OpenGL window and compositing
ii  compiz-plugins                                0.8.4-4                           OpenGL window and compositing
ii  compizconfig-settings-manager                 0.8.4-2                           Compizconfig Settings
ii  libcompizconfig0                              0.8.4-2                           Configuration settings library for
ii  python-compizconfig                           0.8.4-2                           Compizconfig bindings for python


Then I tried running dpkg-reconfigure on
xserver-common
xserver-xorg
xserver-xorg-core
xserver-xorg-video-intel
compiz-core
compiz-gnome
compiz-gtk
libcompizconfig0
python-compizconfig

The only error I get from configuring these is the last package, where it complains about an installation script that is evidently written for python 2.6, since it uses the keyword “with”, but apt-get is ultimately running the install script with python2.5. I don't know how to change the version of python that dpkg (or apt or whatever) uses, so I tweaked the offending code to without using the “with” keyword. That resolved that error, so there are no errors in reconfiguring any of these packages.

I also tried reinstalling sever packages related to DRI:
Code: Select all
dpkg -l "*dri*" | grep ii
ii  cups-driver-gutenprint                        5.2.6-1                           printer drivers for CUPS
ii  cupsddk-drivers                               1.2.3-5                           CUPS Driver Development Kit -
ii  driconf                                       0.9.1-2                           DRI configuration applet
ii  libgl1-mesa-dri                               7.7.1-5                           A free implementation of the OpenGL
ii  libxcb-dri2-0                                 1.6-1                             X C Binding, dri2 extension
ii  xlibmesa-dri                                  1:7.1.0-19                        transitional package for Debian etch

Specifically, I tried reinstalling with “apt-get –reinstall ... ” driconf, libgl1-mesa-dri, libxcb-dri2-0 & xlibmesa-dri (this last one is a virtual package or something, so nothing downloads). None of that helped either.

I've fiddled with xorg.conf, but have also been booting without it periodically throughout my attempts to get things working again. In neither case does compiz. I can attach the xorg.conf file, but the point is, compiz doesn't work even after X autoconfigures.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

My log file attachments didn't seem to work. Hopefully including them in code brackets isn't bad etiquette or something.

Re: Compiz now gives blank screen; intel i915

Postby bw123 » 2012-12-27 14:53

compiz blacklisted some boards, make sure yours insn't in the list.

you might get it working tweaking the driver options, hard to say. this is what i would search for:

compiz "8086:a012"
"direct rendering" "Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller rev 0"

you an also find the options with

Code: Select all
man intel


you can use Xorg -configure to make a framework for you to edit. The "shadow off" works on one board I have, but on another rev it causes kernel panic.

You might have to use a Composite "enable" option also in xorg.conf
Code: Select all
Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
        Mode 0666
EndSection

Re: Compiz now gives blank screen; intel i915

Thanks for the tip, bw123. I checked and my board isn't blacklisted, but besides and as I said, compiz *was* working on this machine. The problems arose when switching the file-system to another machine for which I installed a proprietary Radeon kernel module and then transferred the file-system back to the original machine seeking to revert to the original intel kernel & X modules.

In fact, I've done this once before successfully. Say the two machines are 'A' (older) & 'B' (new). The hdd was originally in A, then I put it in B and got everything working including the Radeon graphics chipset, which required the Radeon driver. For hardware reasons, the machine was still problematic, so I transferred the hdd back to A so that I could continue working and worry about upgrading another day. At that stage, direct rendering didn't work after doing the usual necessary things, but a dist-upgrade fixed it. I did that because I came across a claim that the proprietary Radeon driver overwrites bits of the X packages.

Now I've tried again to upgrade to the new laptop and had to give up again, so the hdd has once more gone from A to B and back to A. But now I don't want to do a dist-upgrade again as I'm already up-to-date on 'stable' from the last go around.

So I suspect the current problem relates to installed packages that have been toyed with by the Radeon driver and need to be replaced with fresh copies.

SOLVED

I tried the first codeblock here:
http://board.blackbuntu.com/thread-31.html

It worked! As I didn't have any nvidia packages (no nvidia hw), and had already tried almost everything else in this codeblock (see posts above), I think the crucial step which I had previously omitted was to force a reinstall of this particular package:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall  libgl1-mesa-glx


So i guess the fix is probably contained within this:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

And I guess that means that the files that the proprietary Radeon driver toys with is in one of those packages.

The fix might also include something I tried in the first post, though.

Re: [SOLVED] Radeon --> Intel i915 breaks compiz; blank scre

Postby filiusfob » 2013-01-08 15:05

For the record, a solution in one place:

These two commands, as root, are sufficient to return to the Intel driver with full glx extensions after installing the proprietary Radeon "Catalyst" driver which overwrites the contents of some packages:

Code: Select all
apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg


(Each mentioned package is sufficient, but I don't know it each is necessary.)

(PS I had another go because the HP got sent for repairs. Tried Linux again and still has same hw problem! It happens in Windows too, but much less there. It's annoying since that's what the service centre will use!)
