FYI: 4.1.0-0pre1v5 vs DRM vs linux 2.4.7



Attached is a series on messages from dri-users, the DRI users' list.
Basically the DRM modules in 4.1.0 are not in sync with 2.4.7.  I
haven't checked, I don't use the mentioned .debs.  It would be helpful
if someone can deny or confirm this, as it would create more trouble for
users trying to setup the DRI on Debian.

FWIW, the DRM interface is probably going to change at least once more
after 4.1.0.

Did you recompile your DRM kernel module with the 4.1 drm source?

If no, you might want to grab it from http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh

I'm using Branden't pre1v5 debs here with a Matrox G400 and everything is
smooth.

Do i need to do that? I thought the kernel DRM code is now in sync with
X4.

Nevertheless, i am giving the X4 DRM modules a shot now.

Using the X4.1.0 DRM modules cured it.

Thanx Sean!
