CONFIG_DRM_TDFX=m
CONFIG_DRM_R128=m
CONFIG_DRM_RADEON=m
CONFIG_DRM_I810=m
CONFIG_DRM_I830=m

ok, that sucked, didnt it? :)
after removing Load "dri" line from xorg.conf i at least got X to start, but how do I enable DRI???

Thanks

/bin/bash 02-19-2006 02:09 AM

Make sure you have agpgart enabled. Before starting X run modprobe via-agp, that should load both via-agp and agpgart. Make sure you have correct permissions to access /dev/agpgart.

In xorg.conf

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

As of 2.6.14 the kernel has savage DRI support built in so as long as SUSE has it enabled you shouldn't have to do anything except possibly edit your xorg.conf file.

Hello everybody.
I have some problems left too.
I installed the drivers. there seems to be no prob till there. also, i have already modified my xorg.conf.
but where do i have to tell my ubuntu or x.org to load up the modules on startup since i have NO modprobe.conf or local.start on my system?? someone mentioned the etc/modprobe.d/aliases would be the same as the modprobe.conf but didn't write much more, and also i can't find it anymore.
BruceCadieux mentioned something about modprobing in the /etc/init.d/rc in Thread #39
but i have no clue how to put that at the end of rc...
I'm really greatfull for any help!

Thanks!

<PageDn> to end of file.
modprobe via-agp
<Ctrl>+x

thanx /bin/bash.
found out that the etc/modules file loads these modules also on start up.

0% of this works for me I have read and tried every single thing in this thread and on dri.freedesktop.org and their mailing lists and right now all I want is to get rid of this stuff. Does anyone have any idea how to reverse the changes and go back to stock I'm sick of searching through this stuff? X doesn't even work going to vesa and no dri! This thread literally destroyed X on my system and I don't want dri I just want X back. Reversal techniques please :(

From Post #1
Quote:

# make install #Warning this will overwrite your current XFree86 installation. Make sure you know how to undo this if it fails. Also you must be root to run make install.
You didn't read post 1 very carefully. Also you should re-read Post #132. You don't have to do anything except build a new kernel >= 2.6.14 and select DRM and dri savage support.

Now, since you might be running Fedora? I would suggest:
rpm -qa|grep xorg
rpm -i --force <xorg packages>

ok this may be and old thread but i am lost in all this info im new to linux and just want my games to work dri is disabled and i need some help like maybe on a few things if at all possible ill edit if anyone will help me.

ruben 08-31-2006 06:27 AM

can someone plsz help with this im so confused on what to do and what not to do

trademarka 09-01-2006 06:41 AM

first of all, what is your hardware and what distribution are you using?
the simplest way to solve the DRI problem is installing the latest version of your linux distribution, then all you'll have to do is modify your xorg.conf file...

pro savage sucks get another card from newegg.com i recommend a geforce
for 62 dollars its a 256 mb video card with 16 great review so id say its worth the upgrade and also this driver is supported by suse without alot of trouble.
