I was able to get them both to compile on Debian 7.4 32bit but, I cannot get either to work with my R7 260X. For my compile issue, the failure is in file kcl_iommu.c. User Jean-Marc Liotier at the Debian user gorup provided the fix in message 88 on bug 729765. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=729765#88
That fixed my compile issue but my R7 260X still does not work under Debian 7.4. Jean-Marc indicated the following was required before a reboot to get his setup working. "dpkg-reconfigure fglrx-modules-dkms"
The dpkg fails indicating a problem because it appears to be a binary. Once I get the clean compile I'm not sure what to do with the files. The Catalyst installer doesn't work as it overwrites the fix. Debian user gindek supplied the answer in his orginal post on the debian user group on how to install.
0. Uninstall old driver installation: /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh --force && reboot
1. Extract driver: ./amd_driver.run --extract amd-driver
2. Apply patch kcl_iommu.c
3. ./ati-installer.sh 13.20.16 --install (parameters taken from watch "ps aux | grep ati-instller"
I will try this at my first opportunity and report back.
The issue I see after a fresh Debian 7.4 install is, the screen goes black when I log in. Up to that point it is working fine. Prior to the r7, when I log in the first time I get an error message indicating a problem with GDM3 and it tells me it is reverting back. Then, I install the default catalyst driver from Debian and everything works fine on an HD5450. I suspect the failure is based on the debian default drivers not supporting the r7 but that is just speculation.This is what led me down the path of trying the Catalyst install. Stay tuned.
