Xorg + Slack 9.1 + kernel 2.6.5 + ATI radeon 9600


Hi.
I've got problems with getting my slackware 9.1 with dropline gnome 2.6 and kernel 2.6.5 to start X. X wan't start with the following log (/var/log/..)

(II) Loading sub module "radeon"
(II) LoadModule: "radeon"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.o
(II) Module radeon: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.99.902, module version = 4.0.1
Module class: XFree86 Video Driver
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.7
(II) Loading sub module "fbdevhw"
(II) LoadModule: "fbdevhw"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfbdevhw.a
(II) Module fbdevhw: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.99.902, module version = 0.0.2
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.7
(II) FBDEV(1): using default device
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(--) Chipset vesa found
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(--) Chipset generic found

Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices

The ATI card is using BusID 2:0:1, and I dont know to get X up and running. I've tried witg xorg.cfg in /etc/X11 with no success.. As far as I understand X is trying to execute by using the framebuffer device, but there is no graphics card at the default Busid 2:0:0

Please help...

Thomas

I don't know how you're trying to run it in framebuffer mode... I'm not even sure the radeon module can do that.

Why don't you post up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and I'll have a crack at looking for the problem.

I have Radeon M7500. ...trying to get GL up and running, I've got the CVS Radeon DRI installed and customized xorg.conf... its still not using direct rendering... should I get the official ATI driver per linked above or stick with CVS?...(and why?) I'm a newbie trying to fumble through this, so pardon if my question is redundant... still have mucho research ahead of me.

I had this same error. I just installed gentoo with the genkernel. I simply had to add an additional statement to my grub.conf.

title=Gentoo Linux 2.4.26-r6
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.4.26-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda3 vga=788

You can either add the vga statement or a video statement. To see which fits you, visit this page:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...part=1&chap=10

not sure how much this applies to slackware, but i would start looking at your bootloader config
