Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26377
mga DRI says it's working, but it isn't
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:18:47 EDT
According to /var/log/XFree86.0.log, DRI is enabled and functioning,
but according to glxinfo it's using the Mesa indirect renderer, and
3D is not accelerated.
This is using a G400.
I'm not surprised by this at all. mga isn't functioning on this card
at all for me period let alone snazzy DRI. ;o)
Added to the mga todo list.
Can you attach your server log and config Bill? I want to try and
corelate some things..
Not my machine. Trond will have to attach a log file.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release

This is probably a permissions bug... when you're root, it works as before: Hard

Dmesg file when X crashed
Michael, the dmesg output indicates something weird in the drm driver...
No problems here with a G200 and a G400, XF86 4.0.2-7, kernel 2.4.1-ac6 with a
couple of patches from the RPM
You need to have
in the XF86Config-4 for DRI to be accessible by non-root users, btw, regardless
of whether the functionality actually works or not.
the original cause of the bug (bad DRI permissions) is fixed now.
mga DRI is as schizophrenic as always.
