Description Mike A. Harris 2003-02-01 19:36:38 EST
<y0-y0> Symbol drmR128TextureBlit from module
<y0-y0> is unresolved!
<y0-y0> Symbol drmFreeBufs from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o
is unresolved!
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 00:58:01 EST
drmR128TextureBlit is in the kernel DRM itself

The r128 driver doesn't appear to use drmR128TextureBlit in rawhide
at all.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 01:14:08 EST
[mharris@devel xfree86]$ pwd
[mharris@devel xfree86]$ grep -ri drmR128Texture *
drivers/ati/r128_video.c:       if ((err = drmR128TextureBlit(info->drmFD, idx,
offset, dstPitch,
drivers/ati/r128_video.c.ati-r128-Xv-dma-fix:   if ((err =
drmR128TextureBlit(info->drmFD, idx, offset, dstPitch,

Ok, so this symbol is actually used in the r128 driver in 4.2.1.

Ah yes.  With a bit more research, I found the problem and fixed it in
4.2.1.  This problem is not present in current CVS nor are these symbols
used in CVS anymore hence the original confusion.  While the actual
DRM functions are in the kernel code, the problem is not in kernel.

Problem fixed in 4.2.1-11 and will be on:
