Re: DRI on r128 iMac using 2.4.18 woody?

Greetings, not the original poster, but this answered a nagging question so I thought I'd give it a try...

I've had DRI working fine with SUSE on my iMac so I know it works

I've been looking for the kernel module r128 but can't see them unless
they are these: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/r128_dri.so
No, it's /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/char/drm/r128.o . If you
don't want to build your own kernel with it enabled, you can try
kernel-image-2.4.18-powerpc-xfs which seems to provide it.
Cool! Got that kernel and r128 loaded fine when X started on my G4 cube (but wish I had known to modprobe gmac for the network to work, that took a little while to figure out :-).

Unfortunately, when a GL window opened, the display hung and I had to remotely kill the process that tried to open it. :-(

Could there be a device with the wrong permissions? I notice /dev/dri/card0 is root.root 666, the same for my working Voodoo3 Intel boxes...

Thanks for any help you can provide,
