Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150463
DRI not enabled for ATI Radeon 9200
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:16 EST
Description of problem:
With kernel-2.6.9-5.EL no /dev/dri/card0 appears and in dmesg there is
no message about the ATI Radeon card I have. The computer is with AMD
Athlon and SiS 745 chipset. If I use vanilla 2.6.10 kernel with
agpgart, sis-agp as module and load the modules either by hand or by
using modprobe.conf it works fine. I even tried upgrading to
kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 and it didn't help.
Even if I do modprobe radeon later it doesn't help because it only
initializes the DRM however the DRI stays switched off.
DRI works out of the box with the supplied kernel.
we disabled it in X for GA due to stability concerns, it'll be fixed in U1 I
believe? Mike ?
DRI is disabled by default in the current xorg-x11 for RHEL4. You have
to enable DRI manually in the config file.
