I sent new PKGBUILD to package maintainers. It is also available here:

disowning package nvidia seems to be better :)

yurikoles commented on 2017-02-17 20:56 (UTC)

Why its conflicts with xorg-server?

updated enjoy :)

EndlessEden commented on 2016-05-03 21:38 (UTC)

looks abandoned. its been tagged and i brought up the issue a few times. the maintainer deletes my comments and ignore it.

ciupenhauer commented on 2016-04-13 21:29 (UTC)

Is anyone still maintaining this?

cpatrick08 commented on 2015-09-07 21:46 (UTC)

wont build if xorg-server-git is installed

MRLemux commented on 2015-02-10 16:29 (UTC)

Updated it, should now work again.

MRLemux commented on 2014-11-01 11:34 (UTC)

This should depend on xorg-server-git as the radeon driver is made with the X git tree in mind.

Dasonk commented on 2014-10-06 00:01 (UTC)

You should add git as a make dependency

tomkwok commented on 2014-09-27 04:42 (UTC)

Updated. I'm sorry for the delay.

confusedfla commented on 2014-09-24 10:55 (UTC)

@tomkwok: Do you have time/interest in maintaining this package? This package doesn't work without the fix provided by @kerberizer and with > 200 votes people are/will encounter this ;-)

kerberizer commented on 2014-08-08 02:10 (UTC)

The following seems to work with the new Xorg 1.16... -depends=('libdrm>=2.4.41' 'systemd' 'ati-dri' 'glamor-egl') -makedepends=('xorg-server-devel' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION=15') -conflicts=('xorg-server<1.15.0' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION<15' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION>=16' 'xf86-video-ati') +depends=('libdrm>=2.4.41' 'systemd' 'ati-dri') +makedepends=('xorg-server-devel' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION=18') +conflicts=('xorg-server<1.16.0' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION<18' 'X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION>=19' 'xf86-video-ati')

kerberizer commented on 2014-07-11 09:55 (UTC)

May I suggest adding the following pkgver function to the PKGBUILD... pkgver() { cd "${srcdir}/xf86-video-ati" echo $(git describe --long | sed -r 's/^xf86-video-ati-//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g') } The package version would then be something like "7.4.0.r2.gc4ae0e2-1", which would help to keep better track on what exactly code the package was built from.

commented on 2014-03-02 12:11 (UTC)

I have updated the package to @zman0900's pkgbuild, I no longer use this package and don't have the time to maintain it, so I'm disowning.

zman0900 commented on 2014-03-02 11:09 (UTC)

Flagged out of date sine the --enable-dri flag isn't valid anymore. Here's an updated pkgbuild: I updated it to match what is in the repos and use the built in way of handling git.

younishd commented on 2014-02-07 20:08 (UTC)

@tapir, Same here. Did you fix it somehow? (related?)

tapir commented on 2014-01-01 16:55 (UTC)

X11 hangs on start without any errors on log file: xf86-video-ati works OK.

Nowaker commented on 2013-09-24 16:00 (UTC)

I marked it but Dr.Egg is right, glamor is enabled by default so there is no need for any changes. Mark as up-to-date please.

commented on 2013-09-22 18:43 (UTC)

Hello, I am considering becoming maintainer for this package. I've not maintained any video drivers before. I am wondering why this package was flagged and what needs to be done? Thanks,

rwhite226 commented on 2013-09-19 16:40 (UTC)

Glamor is now enabled by default in master branch so there is no need to enable it.

Nowaker commented on 2013-09-18 13:06 (UTC)

xf86-video-ati in [extra] already enables glamor. I believe this package should do this as well.

commented on 2012-11-10 20:40 (UTC)

It seems that scrnsaverproto is also needed for this to build. Without it, I got "fatal error: x11/extensions/saver.h: no such file or directory" during compilation.

RcrdBrt commented on 2012-10-17 14:22 (UTC)

updated with the resourceproto make dep thanks to agapito

agapito commented on 2012-10-17 13:54 (UTC)

I couldn't compile without "resourceproto" package.

derJupp commented on 2012-10-15 19:40 (UTC)

After update with pacman ati-dri 9.0-1 the xf86-video-ati-git driver not works ! I cant get new install Errors: In file included from /usr/include/xorg/globals.h:8:0, from /usr/include/xorg/opaque.h:34, from /usr/include/xorg/xf86_OSproc.h:127, from ati.h:32, from ati.c:65: /usr/include/xorg/extinit.h:107:38: fatal error: X11/extensions/XResproto.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Now i get the catalyst-test driver for my Radeon HD 7770 , sorry for my bad englisch

commented on 2012-10-11 06:33 (UTC)

after an update with the official driver my RV250 RADEON encounters bugs. With this package it's ok. Thanks for it ;) Après une mise à jour avec le driver officiel, ma carte RV250 RADEON a fait bugguer l'affichage. Avec ce driver c'est nickel ;) Merci

RcrdBrt commented on 2012-09-26 15:41 (UTC)

updated the PKGBUILD with clark correction thanks clark3934

commented on 2012-09-25 01:41 (UTC)

ovonuk: This is because the PKGBUILD does't cd into the directory containing the git repo. Add cd "${_gitname}" after line 31, so it looks like: if [[ -d "${srcdir}/${_gitname}" ]] ; then cd "${_gitname}" git pull origin msg "The local files are updated..." else git clone "${_gitroot}" cd "${_gitname}" fi

haagch you're right! I did a mistake in the script since this is the upstream version I thought it's necessary to test it with a new xorg version and I did a typo.. sorry, updated the PKGBUILD

Nevermind, my bad.

Hello, I am getting the following error: Cloning into 'xf86-video-ati'... fatal: not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server? Is it a problem with the package itself or should I do something about it? Thanks in advance.

kfgz commented on 2011-08-13 09:58 (UTC)

OK. Fixed.

commented on 2011-08-11 18:34 (UTC)

radeon.h:76:23: fatal error: GL/glxint.h: No such file or directory You really have to add glproto as dependency.

kfgz commented on 2011-08-08 18:08 (UTC)

Why should I do it? xf86-video-ati in [extra] doesn't have glproto as dependency.

burntsushi commented on 2011-08-08 02:47 (UTC)

Please add 'glproto' as a dependency.

commented on 2010-10-10 23:20 (UTC)

[Bug 30451] If you get error: "ATI driver: module ABI major version (8) doesn't match the server's version (9)", you need to rebuild that driver; If you get error: ‘struct _ScrnInfoRec’ has no member named ‘pixmapPrivate’ see for patch

commented on 2010-10-07 20:58 (UTC)

Actually, it doesn't compile without this patch (

jiuren commented on 2010-09-29 10:57 (UTC)

it works fine with xorg-server 1.8.1 for me too. btw, i use the whole tool chain of git version including ati-dri-git/mesa-git and so on.

commented on 2010-09-23 02:47 (UTC)

For what its worth this works fine for me without xorg-server-devel

Perry3D commented on 2010-09-08 19:47 (UTC)

Why is this package limited to the testing repo? Is there no configuration to build it against extra and testing?

commented on 2010-09-08 19:24 (UTC)

Yes, I did install the stuff from [testing], coz I already had ran into mouse/keyboard issues (man, I'm hating this). If not for the stupid KDE 4.5.1, I wouldn't be here wasting 2 hours figuring out gallium dependencies :(

flamelab commented on 2010-09-08 19:07 (UTC)

Not only that, if you install just some packages from [testing], you may have a problem. You should fully upgrade into [testing]. xf86-video-ati-git can be built with the current [extra] xorg-server, just an edit in PKGBUILD. But I propose you to use the testing graphics' packages.

commented on 2010-09-08 18:58 (UTC)

I understand, you want us to install xorg-server-devel from the testing repo, ok.

flamelab commented on 2010-09-08 18:54 (UTC)

Please read my comments below.

commented on 2010-09-08 17:04 (UTC)

makedepends=('xorg-server-devel' ... etc As far as I see this package is now called 'xorg-server-dev' on AUR. Should this be fixed?

intgr commented on 2010-08-30 21:54 (UTC)

D'oh, I think I was missing xorg-server-devel (not sure how I managed to run makepkg without it before; did you update the PKGBUILD?). In any case, it works now.

flamelab commented on 2010-08-30 21:40 (UTC)

Upstream problem, wait for a fix.

intgr commented on 2010-08-30 21:39 (UTC)

flamelab commented on 2010-08-26 17:07 (UTC)

It's in testing. Using xf86-video-ati without testing, isn't proposed. If you do want to test it without the [testing] repo, replace xorg-server-devel with xorg-server in the PKGBUILD

rp9 commented on 2010-08-26 16:30 (UTC)

xorg-server-devel isn't in AUR anymore?

flamelab commented on 2010-08-25 11:16 (UTC)

... And also made a few fixes in the PKGBUILD.

flamelab commented on 2010-08-25 11:03 (UTC)

PKGBUILD updated with updated makedeps/deps

flamelab commented on 2010-08-24 21:18 (UTC)

Thank you for the comment, I'm planning to update it as soon as possible.

commented on 2010-08-24 20:36 (UTC)

This package now has a build dependency on xorg-server-devel which provides /usr/share/aclocal/xorg-server.m4

commented on 2010-07-11 09:09 (UTC)

@ rahman If you're using autoconf 2.66 from testing, try to downgrade to the one in [core] (version 2.65).
