No direct rendering with DRI/DRM on X.org 6.8.2


Hi guys,

I know there are lots of other threads diskussing similiar problems, but I never found a solvation for my problem.
I installed dri and Mesa as said on dri.freedekstop.org but after a long time of probing and trying, I now think that X.org don't uses my new installed dri drivers for my Radeon X800PRO. So he uses the old 2D radeon_drv.o drivers instead of the new radeon_dri.so drivers! And glxinfo always says:

Code:
> glxinfo
...
direct rendering: No
....

In /var/log/Xorg.0.log there arent't any errors but maybe that this is interesting:

Code:
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_clip.o":  object file contains no symbols
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_norm.o":  object file contains no symbols
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_xform.o":  object file contains no symbols

This is apart of my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Module"
...
  Load         "glx"
  Load         "dri"
...
EndSection

...

Section "Device"
  BoardName    "R420 JI"
  BusID        "1:0:0"
  Driver       "radeon"
  Option       "AGPMode" "4"
  Option       "EnablePageFlip" "True"
  Identifier   "Device[0]"
  VendorName   "ATI"
EndSection

...


I'm searching since over 2 months and I'm getting tired now, maybe I'm sightless but I hope you can help me.


Thanks,

bariton

sry, i've forgot to say that i'm using SuSE 10.0.
I think the livna fglrx drivers are for Fedora Core, but I've gave them a try: without any results.

Also I think they are the same like the drivers from ati. When I use their fglrx driver, everything works, but the GPU gets very very hot even when there is no CPU/GPU load! I can't get an answer for that by ati, so I tried using the OpenSource DRI drivers.
