slack 12, P4M900, openchrome compile help


Could anyone give me some pointers on compiling the openchrome driver for the P4M900 chipset? There are non-distro specific instructions on

wiki.openchrome.org/tikiwiki/tiki-index.php?page=Work%20In%20Progress

I havent ever compiled anything in linux before.

The instructions there are pretty straight-forward, and will certainly work on a Slackware machine (as long as the build environment is sane, kernel source installed, etc).

I would suggest you try it and then report back here if there is a specific issue or error you are having.

well, I compiled the driver. The result is that it didn't work. But I don't know if the problem was the compile or the driver. Now, I didn't compile the DRI section. So I will re-compile the DRI section.

I am having problems understanding what to do next.

http://wiki.openchrome.org/tikiwiki/...hp?page=P4M900

I am trying to get the DRM section compiled.

I have downloaded the patch from the link on the above page and I run the patch command and I get this?

Code:
root@home:/usr/src/linux#  patch -p1 < /home/jason/Download/p4m900-kernel-drm.patch
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|--- drivers/char/drm/drm_pciids.h.orig 2007-08-24 00:19:14.000000000 +0200
|+++ drivers/char/drm/drm_pciids.h      2007-08-24 00:19:32.000000000 +0200
--------------------------
File to patch:
Skip this patch? [y] y
Skipping patch.
1 out of 1 hunk ignored
root@home:/usr/src/linux#
how do I use 'get' to get the patch?

I also have a problem with my system crashing when I am watching a video on youtube. Is this an artifact of not having the right video driver or a separate issue all together?

FYI, I re-made the current version of openchrome for the P4M900 and it worked fine.
