working: slack10.1, radeon 9200SE, 2.6.16.17, DRI


Hi,

I had a lot of trouble getting this working but finally did so i figured i'd share. This is on a default slackware 10.1 install. I compiled the latest kernel 2.6.16.17 with *MODULES* agpgart, sis-agp, and ati-radeon card support. I only get 649fps but it's better than 320 without the dri.

** rc.modules ** (I found that if you load the radeon drivers here even if it's after these two other modules, dri won't be enabled. So just load these here.)

/sbin/modprobe agpgart
/sbin/modprobe sis-agp

** xorg.conf ** (some of these font paths have to be removed but that's not important for this)

Did you install the ATI driver and then run aticonf (or is it aticonfig)? It will generate an xorg.conf file for you. Then the only thing you need to do is uncomment the DRI part.

I said it's working fine for me. I wasn't asking for help, if that's what you're trying to give. Also, i'm not using the ati drivers i'm using the standard radeon drivers (i believe they are the open source ones). Also, i turned on page flip so i get 900fps now.

On suse i got around 1200fps with the ati proprietary drivers but to be honest, i don't feel like messing with it anymore.

I am getting around 3400 to 3500 fps with my laptop that has a x600 chipset. Then you said "I only get 649fps but it's better than 320 without the dri. ", so I though maybe you where having a problem. Sorry

oh. Wow. I'm getting 900 now that i turned on EnablePageFlip. I almost don't feel like chancing the install of the radeon drivers because they wipe out local libraries and if it doesn't work (i haven't had much luck in the past), I don't want to have to reinstall to get them all back(libraries). But thanks anyhow.
