Re: cdrw/dvd, hdparm, and ide-scsi
indeed I have compiled it in - kernel 2.4.20, but it doesn't show up any
differently - are you sure your append matches that exactly?
In my lilo.conf, under the section of my kernel, it says
I've got X with DFI and the whole 'shebang' working and playing DVDs - so
You mean DRI ;-) It's not used for DVD playback, but for 3D-effects, it
provides OpenGL hardware support. You can check out, if it's really
working with TuxRacer and glxgears, or you ask glxinfo.
I know the sisfb is definately working, but it doesn't yield
Well, at me it works. And the kernel parameter in lilo.conf is the only
place, where you can configure sisfb's graphics mode of your console.
If you didn't make a fault at replacing the standard drivers in the
kernel source or at the kernel configuration, it should work for you, too.
note: I haven't gotten winischhofer.net's sisfb patch to the kernel to
compile correctly, so I'm still using the builtin kernel sisfb/etc. - but
my understanding is that still wants it in this form.
Aaaaah! Now I understand! No, it doesn't work with the standard sisfb
driver. You really have to use the one from www.winischhofer.net. There
is also a driver for XFree, that you should use, if you want to have DRI
(-->OpenGL), 'cause the standard driver does definetly NOT support it.
