I am trying to enable 3d acceleration on Gentoo kernel 2.6.18-gentoo-r6.
lspci gives me:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X (rev 5c)
and a quick research told me I should use the mach64 module to have 3d acceleration.
So I followed the how-to:
First problem, there isn't (or isn't anymore) anything like a insecure-driver use flag for xorg-x11.
I did not have any trouble to emerge x11-drm and it did build the module mach64.ko in /usr/lib/modules/<kernel-version>.
But when I try to launch X, it crashes with the following error:
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module mach64
(II) UnloadModule: "mach64"
(EE) Failed to load module "mach64" (module does not exist, 0)
I can modprobe mach64 before but it does not change anything.
X works (but without dri) if I use:
I haven't tried to use the cvs snapshots so far.
I only have basic knowledge of Gentoo, but have been using a Debian for several years before.
Thanks for any help.
