PCSX2 0.9.9 svn on Gentoo AMD64 (GSdx problems)
Hi PCSX2 community,

I try to run the emulator on my Gentoo AMD64. Compilation seems to be all well, and i can launch PCSX2. But, i can't use the GSdx plugin, PCSX2 freeze on a blank screen whe i run a game, i have to kill the process. Launching with GDB confirms that i have a SEGFAULT signal. ZZogl runs, but it's quite slow and full of glitches, so i would like to run with GSdx. I've tried gsdx-ogl, same problem. Here's my infos :

Config :
Gentoo x86_64
Core i7 2600k
AMD Radeon HD 6870 with fglrx 11.12
gcc 4.5.3

library link for GSdx :
$ ldd /usr/games/lib32/pcsx2/ =>  (0xf76e4000) => /usr/lib32/ (0xf6e3d000) => /usr/lib32/ (0xf6de6000) => /usr/lib32/opengl/ati/lib/ (0xf6cfa000) => /lib32/ (0xf6cf6000) => /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.5.3/32/ (0xf6c07000) => /lib32/ (0xf6be1000) => /lib32/ (0xf6bc6000) => /lib32/ (0xf6bac000) => /lib32/ (0xf6a4e000) => /usr/lib32/ (0xf6a34000) => /usr/lib32/ (0xf6a23000)

Thanks for your help.

GSdx-ogl (hardware render) won't work on amd system however the SW render must work (or I forgot to commit something Tongue2). My guess is that you have an issue with SDL/Wxwidget. Your wxwidget is probably link against SDL1.2, whereas GSdx is (statically) linked to SDL1.3... It can be checked with a command like that.
ldd /usr/lib/libwx_* | grep -i SDL

The easiest to test is to compile GSdx-ogl without the cmake SDL flags. Then use the SW ogl backend not SDL.

Side note: there is an hidden option inside GSdx that control the multithreading mode : "condvar" (0 or 1). If you have some time to benchmark it with your 8 core CPU, I would be glad. Thanks.
Damn, you're right :

$ ldd /usr/lib/libwx_* | grep -i SDL => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fcdaec6c000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fc30c3b2000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f4feccbc000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f8fc466e000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fc2c6643000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fe0ef94f000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fed00bf7000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007ffe3aac9000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f51964a3000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f42ea473000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f2ecaa5d000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007fb82d347000)
As libsdl 1.3 is not yet in Portage tree, i will recompile GSdx without SDL flag. I will post benchmarking in thanks for your help, but where ? In a topic ?
Well that easy every body have the same issue Tongue2

Here it is fine.

Another possibility is the rebuild of wxwidget without SDL. It is only uses for one useless audio backend. Debian/Ubuntu don't have this useless dependency.
Is it still not possible to replace sw+sdl with sw+ogl? I'd be happy to delete sdl from the source tree Laugh
it is possible ;-) I want to fix Few thing first then I will merge back my branch. The branch can be build without SDL so it will be easy to remove. I just need to find some free time to polish it.

One question however. I want to move ogl device and render into an ogl directory. It feels quite messy to have everything into a directory.Is it okay for you ?
Strange things can happen when the precompiled header (stdafx.h) is not in the same dir.
