Description Laurence Page 2001-08-16 10:49:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.61C-SGI [en] (X11; I; IRIX 6.5 IP22)

Description of problem:
ATI Radeon cannot install the radeon kernel module.  When agpgart & radeon
modules are loaded by hand with insmod the XFree86 log says that the radeon
module has the wrong version number (1.0.0 instead of 1.1.0)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an ATI Radeon card
2. Install RedHat Beta ROSWELL
3. try running an OpenGL program - it will be very slow.  
4. Look at /var/log/XFree86.0.log there will be errors flagged about the
radeon module

Actual Results:  OpenGL programs will only run slowly because DRI is

Expected Results:  They should run very fast

Additional info:

[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
(II) RADEON(0): [drm] drmOpen failed
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed.  Disabling DRI.

Comment 2 Kwan-hong, Lee 2001-08-16 22:30:43 EDT

- DRI support is not included for XFree86-4.1.0. This means that
  hardware-accelerated GL will not work.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-28 07:41:44 EDT
That is correct, Roswell did not have any DRI support at all.
Roswell 2 does, but Radeon support was broken.  It is fixed now in
XFree86 4.1.0-0.99.2
