Description Rogelio Noriega 2001-05-14 15:11:54 UTC
Description of Problem:
After running "Xconfigurator" for ATI Radeon PCI card, "glxinfo" shows 
direct rendering: No, lsmod does not have an entry for 
ATI. "/usr/src/linux-2.4/drivers/pci/pci.ids" does not include the entry 
for device id 5144 radeon_drv.o also modprobe causes error see below.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH7.1 with ATI card.
2. Run Xconfigurator

Actual Results: radeon module is not used, dri =No

Expected Results:

Additional Information:

Running "lspci; lspci -n" gives the following results:

Results of `modprobe radeon`

Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.2-
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.o: init_module: Cannot 
allocate memory
insmod /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.o: insmod radeon failed
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, 
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-14 15:34:01 UTC
Does "modprobe agpgart" succeed ?

Comment 2 Yu-Pa Ng 2001-05-14 15:46:42 UTC
`modprobe agpgart` successfully probed agpgart.  
Then, `modprobe radeon` succeeded as well.   After restarting X window, `lsmod`
shows radeon is unused.  DRI is still disabled.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-14 15:48:19 UTC
Is DRI enabled in the XFree config ?

Comment 4 Yu-Pa Ng 2001-05-14 16:13:27 UTC
Created attachment 18293 [details]
Yes, Dri is enabled in XFree Config.  Plese see the enclosed /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-15 08:45:58 UTC
Read the RELEASE-NOTES that come on the first CDROM.  XFree86 4.0.3 does
not support DRI on the ATI Radeon.  Our kernel ships with the Radeon DRM
module in the hopes that a future XFree86 release that does support the
Radeon 3D accelerated will hopefully just drop in without a kernel

Currently in order to get 3D acceleration in XFree86 you need to use the
CVS head branch of XFree86, or wait until XFree86 4.1.0 is released.
