Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 130687
kernel misses i915.ko drm module
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
When running the latest rawhide Xorg it tries to load i915.ko as
module, but this isn't there in the latest rawhide kernel.
I fixed this by downloading the drm CVS from freedesktop.org,
compiling the i915 module from this and loading it, this works like a
charm, please include this in the FC kernel builds.
Before this I tried to use modprobe i830, instead of simply failing,
this gave me an oops when starting X:
: [drm] Initialized i830 1.3.2 20021108 on minor 0:
: mtrr: base(0xd8020000) is not aligned on a size(0x400000) boundary
: [drm:i830_dma_initialize] *ERROR* can not find dma buffer map!
: [drm:i830_irq_emit] *ERROR* i830_irq_emit called without lock held
: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
Lett me know if you want the whole oops.
From fedora-devel, for people tracking this bug:
A kernel with the i915 DRM driver is now available from
will also appear in tomorrows (today?) rawhide sync
I just verified that the current rawhide kernel has 915 included and
