Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242120
drm module don't work with 855GM chipset (xorg driver i915)
Last modified: 2008-01-08 19:44:48 EST
Description of problem:
Drm module i915 in /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/char/drm does
not work with kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
install fedora 7 on a box using an intel 855GM chipset (driver i915), try to
launch glxgears : you'll get a drmmap error
dri does not work
dri should work :)
SOLUTION : checkout mesa/drm from the freedesktop git, go in the linux-core dir,
make and copy the .ko files in the right dir (drivers/char/drm/), reboot.
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?
If the problem has gone away then please close this bug or I'll do so in a few
days if there is no additional information lodged.
Well, I don't have the problem anymore, so we could close it.
