Description Pablo Mejia 2003-08-19 02:23:57 EDT

Description of problem:
I am unable to get DRI working with an NForce2 motherboard (Asus A7N8X Deluxe)
and an ATI Radeon 9100.  The kernel does not provide AGP GART support for the
NForce2.  NVidia has released patches for this:


However, those patches don't apply cleanly to the RedHat kernel.  However, they
do apply to the kernel.org kernels.  It appears that the AGP part is included in
2.4.22-rc2 at least.

Unfortunately, I am not able to just use the kernel.org kernel.  Evidently the
kernel.org kernel does not have a recent enough version of the radeon driver as
XFree86 complains about a version mismatch.

[dri] radeon.o kernel module version is 1.1.1 but version 1.5.0 or newer is needed.

The version that ships with the RedHat kernel is up to 1.7 so it would work...
if it had AGP GART support.  So in summary:

- RedHat kernel has no NForce2 AGP GART support, but has good radeon driver
version 1.7
- kernel.org kernel (2.4.22-rc2) has NForce2 AGP GART support but has wrong
radeon driver version (1.1.1)

Is there any hope for an updated RedHat kernel with NForce2 AGP GART support in
the near future?

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2003-08-19 09:08:35 EDT
Already merged and fixed in the next severn kernel to show up in rawhide.
It's unlikely to show up in an update for shrike any time soon.
