drm drivers for ati rage 128 pro


I'm trying to get drm working so I can get dri working, and neither is happening. When I try to load the r128 drm module, I get this error:

babylon:/lib/modules/ insmod r128.ko
insmod: error inserting 'r128.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

'dmesg | grep drm' returns this:

kobject_register failed for drm (-17)
r128: Unknown symbol drm_get_dev
r128: Unknown symbol drm_cleanup_pci

Does anyone know where I can start looking for the problem? If you need more info just ask.

Thank you

glxgears is at 90 fps, please help

The best thing to do is probably to get DRM source and compile it against the exact version of the kernel you're using.
In case you need it, I wrote an article that (among other things) deals with DRM:
This article is about the via DRM, but replacing "via" with "r128" should get you started.
Good luck

Thanks much for the article and the links. DRM seems to be getting further now, but I am finding new problems in Xorg.0.log

(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules-dri-trunk/extensions/
dlopen: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules-dri-trunk/extensions/ undefined sym$
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules-dri-trunk/extensions/

This was a separate module I installed, and now I can't get rid of it, even if I clean my source tree and rebuild my do I get back to using the kernel version?

I'm also getting this:

(II) Module i2c: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for, module version = 1.2.0
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 0.7
(II) R128(0): I2C bus "DDC" initialized.
(II) R128(0): I2C device "DDC:ddc2" registered at address 0xA0.
(II) R128(0): I2C device "DDC:ddc2" removed.
(EE) R128(0): No DFP detected

And this:

(II) R128(0): [drm] loaded kernel module for "r128" driver
(II) R128(0): [drm] DRM interface version 1.0
(II) R128(0): [drm] drmSetBusid failed (7, pci:0000:01:00.0), Inappropriate ioc$
(EE) R128(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.
(II) R128(0): Memory manager initialized to (0,0) (1280,6553)
(II) R128(0): Reserved area from (0,1024) to (1280,1026)
(II) R128(0): Largest offscreen area available: 1280 x 5527
(II) R128(0): Using XFree86 Acceleration Architecture (XAA)

Any ideas what is going wrong specifically? Thanks!
