help with graphics hardware acceleration...


ATI Radeon 9200SE did have hardware acceleration and then suddenly it wasn't there anymore...

i cant be exactly 100% sure but i did notice that i didnt have hardware acceleration after trying the mesa libraries from CVS... however i did remove them completely later...

but since noticing that hardware acceleration wasn't working i've re-compiled the kernel with and without the radeon driver... not compiling the the XFREE 4.1 within the kernel as a module or built in...

even tried the ati drivers with no luck...

is there a couple of files or just one single file that is responsible for enabling hardware acceleration under linux...

kernel version 2.4.29... latest ATI drivers downloaded today... right now running kernel 2.4.30...

Yourve got 2 screen sections there try commenting out the top one it. I would assume xorg loads the first one therefore its loading your video card config without hardware acceleration turned on.

i checked the xorg.conf files the default one, the one for the radeon and the fglrx (ATI Proprietary driver) and in all three the screen is known as "Screen 1" this was the same xorg.conf file that hardware acceleration was working before under...

i remember , after trying the fglrx-driver ( that didn't work ), my 9200se wouldn't use graph. acceleration anymore.
i solved it by re-installing xorg.

just logout to the textscreen, remove all xorg-packages and reinstall them from the cd.

i think some link wasn't properly set back when uninstalling fglrx, but i couldn.t find the error.
reinstalling X worked.

hmm.... i have this in my xorg.conf :
----------
Section "Device"
Identifier "card"
Driver "radeon"
ChipId 0x5964
Option "Overlay"
Option "EnablePageFlip" "on"
EndSection
-------------

did you edit it back, or do you still ( try to ) use the fglrx driver ?

could that be an issue?

(II) Initializing built-in extension XEVIE

and then it loads the drivers for the mouse...

however looks like direct rendering was enabled... but not in the glxinfo output... i did also run glxgears which when direct rendering was there it ran at aroud 1000 fps but now only runs at 290fps...

by the way your glxinfo out put differs to mine...

OpenGL vendor string: Brian Paul
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11
OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 6.2.1

while your vendor is Tungstan Graphics... mine is Brian Paul!

same as yours...

maybe my issue is as in post 9, where there seems to be a problem with reserving memory...

well...i guess there's the error. but what causes it ?

just to be sure: you also have this section in the xorg.conf :
-----
Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection
-----

( i think you already have that. )

thanks for all your input egag... solved the problem... downloaded the latest dri r200 and common from dri.sf.net and acceleration is back...

OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 20040929 AGP 1x x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 6.2.1

and its even better than before glxgears is giving around 1350fps...
