Fatal: Module radeon not found.


Well, i compiled the Linux 2.6.10, and i such radeon as module, and when i run the X, it says:
Fatal: Module radeon not found.
drm Failed to load Kernel module "radeon"
(EE) RADEON(0): dri DRIScreenInit failed: Disabling DRI.

Then, i try such radeon as built-in and happened the same think, what i do?

PS: I have an ATI Radeon 7000

Id suggest that this may be because your slack install doesn't have the Raedon driver(s)?????

You'd have to check. I know that most distros don't have them by default, particularly download versions, because if I understand correctly, it's the same issue as with the Nvidia driver that I have to get, it's freely available, but it's proprietary so you have to get it seperately - the download versions aren't allowed to provide it - licencing restrictions.

regards

Did you remove the module before recompiling? If not, X is probably still trying to load it. I suggest doing "rm -rf /lib/modules/2.6.10" and then "make modules_install" again in the kernel source directory. If this doesn't solve the problem, check that the driver is really enabled in the kernel ("grep DRM .config" in the kernel source directory).

bigjohn: this is about the DRI driver that comes with X. The proprietary driver doesn't even support Radeons older than 8500.

Oh, OK, it was just a bit of a guess on my part. I've been lucky as my graphics card is nvidia based and it would appear that their linux support is somewhat better than Raedon (well as far as I can tell anyway).

Will you post the output of "grep DRM .config" in the kernel source directory for us?

I get the same error - this one: (EE) RADEON(0): dri DRIScreenInit failed: Disabling DRI - in my Xorg log, and that's with a Radeon 9000, kernel 2.6.5 on Gentoo. The radeon module seems to load fine, but DRI doesn't work and my whole system freezes whenever it tries to do intensive DRI or OpenGL things.

If i use the precompiled kernel (.tgz package) i can run opengl and dri applications, but my machine freezes too I use kernel 2.6.10, in kernel 2.6.11 happens the same thing!
