DRI fails to work with no errors?
Hi, according to /proc/pci, I have a "ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro
I compiled agp and the r128 DRI driver for kernel 2.4.3-ac5.
This seems to work: I get these messages:
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xf8000000
[drm] AGP 0.99 on Intel 440BX @ 0xf8000000 64MB
[drm] Initialized r128 2.1.2 20001215 on minor 63
However, glxinfo says I'm not running with direct rendering enabled, and
sure enough, there is nothing in my /var/log/XFree86.0.log file to
indicate that drm loaded successfull (or not) except this:
(II) Loading sub module "drm"
(II) LoadModule: "drm"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules-dri/linux/libdrm.a
(II) Module drm: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 18.104.22.168, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.1
When XAA is initialized, I just get this:
(==) ATI(0): Write-combining range (0xf5000000,0x800000)
(II) ATI(0): Using XFree86 Acceleration Architecture (XAA)
Screen to screen bit blits
Solid filled rectangles
8x8 mono pattern filled rectangles
Indirect CPU to Screen color expansion
Setting up tile and stipple cache:
20 128x128 slots
5 256x256 slots
(==) ATI(0): Backing store disabled
No complaints, no nothing.
I first was using Branden's debs, but then I installed
xserver-xfree86-dri and added the two lines to my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
file, and I get the same results.
I suppose I should fetch and compile the dri modules from the sources at
dri.sourceforge.net? However, is there anyway to find out why drm is
NOT loading already?
Thanks a lot,
