[SOLVED] radeon_drv.so issue after upgrade

After the latest update (stable repo), X won't start on my laptop.
(GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8610G.)

On /var/log/Xorg.0.log there's this error:
Code: [Select]
Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so: undefined symbol: fbImageGlyphBlt

What driver package and version is this?

xf86-video-amdgpu or xf86-video-ati?

The package that caused the issue: xf86-video-ati-1:7.10.0-1.

I found this:
https://github.com/artix-linux/world/issues/20

So I just downgraded it to xf86-video-ati 7.9.0-1, and X started without problems.

Thank you, Mr. Artoo. ^_^

After reading the freebsd post you linked, and some experimentation, I got xf86-video-ati-1:7.10.0-1 working.

This fixed it for me: I created a file:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/modules.conf

with these contents:
Code: [Select]
Section	"Module"
Load "shadow"
Load "fb"
Load "exa"
Load "glamoregl"
EndSection

Same issue, same fix, on my old desktop with an AMD Radeon HD 4250 GPU.

You saved me. This worked for me (Radeon RV 370/RV 380).

Thank you.
