Got a bit of a dumb question regarding the MESA drivers.
« on: January 23, 2013, 10:39:11 am »
I'm a bit curious, with the kernel patches, would this affect the drivers for ATI cards provided by MESA at all? I plan on a final linux build with all arcade monitor patches to be built around a Radeon 6000-series card, but just need to know if recent open-source drivers would need to be tweaked.
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.

So, I can make a modeline that works in 15KHz for the Radeon 6670 in linux.  But when I tried running switchres with the --xrandr option for puckman, this is what I get:

Code: [Select]
Error with command line args
seth@Neo-Arcade:~$ switchres puckman --xrandr
[] "puckman" vertical 288x224@60.606 (1.286) --> 400x288@60.606 (1.389)

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

I have to be doing something wrong.  It's pretty essential to get this working, so I can run games like Kobo Deluxe, Rom Check Fail (which has an odd alsa/pulse issue), smc, and a few others.  Calamity, ves, thoughts on what I'm doing wrong both in Ubuntu and Groovy Arcade?
