dri on ati mobility radeon m7 and 82845 intel agp chipset managed under Debian


hello everyone, i have the following problem. I am a Debian "unstable' user.

the dri doesn't work as you can see from here:

root@nautilus>~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: No

and i don't understand why since I've an all-right configuration that made me work so much.
Here there are my lsmod:

root@nautilus>~$ lsmod
Module Size Used by
<-->
intel_agp 20892 1
radeon 69760 0
drm 59668 1 radeon
agpgart 32040 2 intel_agp,drm
<-->

and my /etc/modules:


root@nautilus>~$ cat /etc/modules | grep -v '#'

agpgart
radeon
intel_agp
ddcmon

some document that i found (thanks to google) say that this issues is due to the fact that in my /etc/modules file i load the modules in a wrong order...i hope that this information can help someone of you, dear reader, because it doesn't help me for nothing!(after many tries too!!)

to finish, this is my lspci:

root@nautilus>~$ lspci
0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82845 845 (Brookdale) Chipset Host Bridge (rev 04)
0000:00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82845 845 (Brookdale) Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 04)

0000:02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801CAM (ICH3) PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 42)

SOMEONE KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT IT?if the information that i wrote here before aren't enough, i can re-post other outputs 'at-request'... thank you all.

no,i don't have the fglrx installed, but from the list of fglrx's supported card my device isn't a supported one.

But I can try, if you say that it will help me...

ah, for the final question: this is a laptop and the video chipset is integrated on!!


thanks again...

Hello1 I have been watching this thread because i too have the same chipset and i believe giueno and i may have the same laptop.

giueno: do you have a IBM thinkpad t30? If so, is it model # 236686u?
I am needing to "adjust my video also". So, can someone inform me, giueno and others if the fglrx package will work on the m7 ATI cards we have? This video is not listed as supported on the ati site.

I'm the owner of a compaq presario 2825ea, and I can confirm that we have the same chispet..

You have to use the radeon driver inside the standard kernel...it's a old chipset, but work well anyway.
