Hello all, Up until today, I had DRI support with my ATI Rage 128 card, using the ati driver and X 4.1. Today's upgrade (running sarge) noticeably dropped my frame rate, so I did some looking around. steve@gashuffer:~$ glxinfo name of display: :0.0 display: :0 screen: 0 direct rendering: No <lot snipped> snip from /var/log/XFree86.0.log: (II) R128(0): [drm] created "r128" driver at busid "PCI:1:0:0" (II) R128(0): [drm] added 8192 byte SAREA at 0xe0949000 (II) R128(0): [drm] mapped SAREA 0xe0949000 to 0x40014000 (II) R128(0): [drm] framebuffer handle = 0xd8000000 (II) R128(0): [drm] added 1 reserved context for kernel (EE) R128(0): [dri] R128DRIScreenInit failed because of a version mismatch.

(EE) R128(0): [drm] failed to remove DRM signal handler (II) R128(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel DRIUnlock called when not locked (II) R128(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xe0949000 at 0x40014000 This implies too old a kernel, but: steve@gashuffer:~$ uname -a Linux gashuffer.lobefin.net 2.4.19 #2 SMP Wed Aug 28 12:14:22 EDT 2002 i686 Pentium III (Coppermine) GenuineIntel GNU/Linux The drop is quite noticeable - I get about 160 fps in glxgears, now, and IIRC getting in the neighborhood of 600 before the upgrade. Anybody know where I can start digging, or better yet, how to fix this? And yes, I have tried the r128 module - same results. It appears to load both modules in any case, no matter which I specify.
