Description Mark Lane 2003-07-16 17:36:45 UTC
Description:
I have a MSI K8D Dual Opteron Board and I am having problems getting DRI 
support to work for any Radeon PCI cards. I have tried both a 7000 and 7500. 
Both cause a rapidly looping error when X starts up with the "ForcePCIMode" 
option.

(EE) RADEON(0): GetBuffer timed out, resetting engine...
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP reset -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP start -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP GetBuffer -1020

(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP reset -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP start -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP GetBuffer -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): GetBuffer timed out, resetting engine...

I understand some work may have been done on the DRI CVS with regards to the 
Radeon PCIGard but I was having problems compiling monday's snapshot on the 
Opteron.

The machine is having some hardware work done at present so I can't get the 
exact packages but I am pretty sure they packages are stock. Some updates were 
run so it is possible that the system is running the newest RedHat kernel.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup X for Radeon
2. Modify XF86Config to "ForcePCIMode"
3. Startx

Actual Results:
The system becomes unresponsive and fills the XFree86.0.log repeatly with the 
following message.

(EE) RADEON(0): GetBuffer timed out, resetting engine...
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP reset -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP start -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP GetBuffer -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): GetBuffer timed out, resetting engine...
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP reset -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP start -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): RADEONCPGetBuffer: CP GetBuffer -1020
(EE) RADEON(0): GetBuffer timed out, resetting engine...

Expected Results:
X starts up and glxinfo shows DRI enabled.
