Question Gentoo Ati Radeon 9000 Pro Direct Rendering not working


For the life of my I cannot get direct rendering setup. I have been trying for about a year now on and off and this may be the closest I have gotten. Here is the error message I get:

[drm:radeon_cp_init] *ERROR* radeon_cp_init called without lock held
[drm:radeon_unlock] *ERROR* Process 10191 using kernel context 0


If have been googling forever with no luck. If anyone has any Ideas please let me know. If you need more information I will be happy to provide it.

Are you using the driver provided by ATI? They're known for not being too great, but still. Are modules agpgart and ati-agp loaded or compiled into the kernel?

Looks like that's fine. Sorry man, I don't know what could be the problem here. You sure you downloaded the correct driver from ati.com? I think the driver also comes with a utility to set up the xorg.conf file...maybe try that? Sorry, don't know. Thanks for that link though, I increased my fps from 1040 to 1435. Keep searching though, I haven't run into a problem yet that wasn't solved through persistence. Maybe there's a fix in 2.6.10 for this?

Thanks for the effort. I'm going to compile the new kernel tonight. I'll post the results. I actually didn't download the drivers from ati, but emerged them. So there might be a newer version that is masked, but I don't think so. I'll take a look tho and I'm glad you jacked up your fps, thats awesome!

I really want to thank ironwalker for those links. The first one helped me out immensely. It is actually working now. I played quake and loved every minute of it! Thanks again. I am using xorg 6.8 so I had to follow the directions pretty explicitly. It wouldn't work at first, complaining that a device didn't exist. So I commented out the pci address and it worked fine.

Thanks again everyene, 7 months solved in 1 link.
