DRI not working with i915 video on a Dell D610 laptop


Hi,
I've been struggling with this one for a while, and I figured I'd reach out for some assistance. I'm just trying to enable DRI on my laptop which is a Dell Latitude D610 with an Intel 915 chipset video card. I've updated to the latest snapshot of the Xorg drivers/modules, the

The device section of my Xorg looks like:

Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "I810"
        Driver      "i810"
        VendorName  "Intel"
        BoardName   "Intel Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express"
        Option "DRI" "true"
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "true"
        BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection
I get the following at the beginning of every startx:

Code:
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
error opening security policy file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
And when I issue a glxinfo to test I get this at the begining:

Code:
ERROR!  sizeof(I830DRIRec) does not match passed size from device driver
libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs.
libGL error: InitDriver failed
libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No
And also from glxinfo:

Code:
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.1)
Along with the information above, the X system starts fine, and looks fine, but just doesn't have DRI enabled. Does anybody have an idea as to how to trouble shoot this? I'm at a loss and would appreciate any help!

Further information:
Processor: 1.86Ghz Pentium M
Distribution: Fedora Core 4 (fresh install with yum updates applied)
X version from snapshot: 6.8.99.901 (6.9.0 RC 1) (Minimal DRI build from X.org tree)

Thanks in advance!

Maybe debian install notes including kernel and xorg configs on your lappy will help. See http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/dell.html

I've looked at that site, and many others like it. Everybody seems to figure this out, but it just isn't working for me. I've played with 915resolution, different drivers, etc, and regardless of what I do I get the errors and no DRI. Any other ideas? Thanks!

Take a look at my kernel config. Its for the 2.6.5 kernels. I had the same problem as you, but then I found this config file on the internet and tweaked it to use for my laptop.

Well, first I changed my processor to the correct one. I also changed the type of ethernet/wireless devices I use. That was about all I needed to change.

This was my fix for AsusZ63A laptop running FC5. Interesting read before you get started http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Xorg/3rdPartyVideoDrivers.

Error--->i915 DRI driver expected DDX version 1-1.5.x but got version 1.4.1
libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs.
libGL error: InitDriver failed
libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
698 frames in 5.6 seconds = 125.381 FPS

You should find i810_dri.so and i915_dri.so in:

/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/
/usr/lib/dri/

Rename i810_dri.so and i915_dri.so located in
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/ to something like i810_dri.so.old
i915_dri.so.old for keeps sake, then create symbolic links in the
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/ directory to the ones in the /usr/lib/dri/
directory. Example:

ln -s /usr/lib/dri/i810_dri.so i810_dri.so
ln -s /usr/lib/dri/i915_dri.so i915_dri.so

Run the above commands assuming you are already in the
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/ directory.

If the above doesn't work try uninstalling and reinstalling the mesa
library then doing the above.
