Description louisgtwo 2004-10-10 11:33:31 EDT
When booting in init 5, or graphical mode with rhgb I don't get direct rendering support with my radeon 7500 when first logging in. If, however, the I execute a log out and then log back in, direct rendering is enabled. Daniel Veillard commented since rhgb now starts the X server of gdm in parallel to ease the visual transition from the graphical boot to the gdm prompt, this might be related As a side note, when booting in init 3 and executing a startx direct rendering is present. Version-Release number of selected component: kernel-2.6.8-1.603 xorg-x11-6.8.1-4 rhgb-0.13.5-2

This looks like a variation on bug 1220 at freedesktop.org (https://freedesktop.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1220). It contains a fix (not yet in cvs), maybe it also fixes this problem...

It sounds to me like the environment rhgb starts up in is different from what the X server normally starts up in, and that might be causing DRI to fail to start. In order to diagnose this, we will need you to reboot the system, to re-trigger the problem, then while in X copy the complete X server log, config file, and /var/log/messages from boot time onward. Please attach these as individual uncompressed files using the bugzilla file attachment link below. Thanks in advance.

Mike, the request for debugging files are unreasonnable as rhgb starts X from a temporary memory filesystem and there is no way an user can get into the system and grab those before the memory filesystem gets unmounted. But if it can be reproduced outside of RHGB by starting 2 servers simultaneously (:0 and :1) then yes logs files can be gathered. Daniel
Comment 4 Kristian Høgsberg 2004-10-15 14:07:15 EDT
This should now be fixed. The xorg-x11-6.8.1-6 X server supports an option to disable DRI and rhgb-0.14.1-1 use this option to disable DRI for the rhgb X server. This means that the GDM X server will be able to initialize DRI properly. Please update to at least those versions of xorg-x11 and rhgb and give it a try again. Thanks!

Reporters, does FC4 work for you?
