Direct rendering: please help!


Hello,

I'm trying too enable direct rendering on my compaq presario 700 with a VIA\S3 Savage video card. Following a thread on this site, I installed successfully
xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk and xlibmesa-gl1-dri-trunk packages and built the DRM from the
drm-trunk-module-src package. Unfortunately when I do
make DRM_MODULES="savage"
I get the following output:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.8/source SUBDIRS=`pwd` DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8'
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8'

This builds the module savage.ko but unfortunately after
cp savage.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/drm
and a reboot the direct rendering is still off and dmesg gives the following:

savage: Unknown symbol drm_open
savage: Unknown symbol drm_fasync
savage: Unknown symbol drm_poll
savage: Unknown symbol drm_get_resource_len
savage: Unknown symbol drm_core_get_reg_ofs
savage: Unknown symbol drm_get_dev
savage: Unknown symbol drm_ioctl
savage: Unknown symbol drm_exit
savage: Unknown symbol drm_debug
savage: Unknown symbol drm_core_get_map_ofs
savage: Unknown symbol drm_init
savage: Unknown symbol drm_get_resource_start
savage: Unknown symbol drm_cleanup_pci
savage: Unknown symbol drm_mmap
savage: Unknown symbol drm_initmap
savage: Unknown symbol drm_core_reclaim_buffers
savage: Unknown symbol drm_release

Does anybody know what I did wrong?
Any advice will be very much appreciated!

Bye

Hello again,

this is just to say that I solved the above mentioned problem by upgrading to kernel 2.6.10. I heard that other users had the same problem with kernel 2.6.8, so I decided to upgrade. The compilation of the savage driver was successful with the new kernel and now I have direct rendering enabled!
The thread can be closed.

Bye
