I am running a stage 1 install of Gentoo 2004.0 with a standard 2.4.6 kernel. I can't get Direct Rendering to work with my ATI Radeon 8500. I use XFree86 4.3 and I used emerge ati-drivers and ati-drivers-extra.
AGPGART - Module
module support for my AMD chipset
DRM - compiled in (because I can't use emerge xfree-drm with a 2.6.4 kernel?)
ATI radeon support
It looks like the DRIScreenInit fails in my XFree86 log....what does that mean??
I've included my glxinfo, dmesg, and XFree86 log ouputs....
I'm fairly new at this linux stuff....but i've tried EVERYTHING to get DRI working.....
