Slackware 10.2 & Direct Rendering


I am running Slackware 10.2 and I have a Intel 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics card. I am trying to get my direct rendering to work. I have installed the i915 driver from Intel and glxinfo still shows
Quote:
direct rendering = no
Here is my lsmod

What about your xorg.conf, do you have the following enabled..
Code:
Load glx
Load dri

 Section "DRI"

 EndSection

One quick thing..

Code:
 Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
 EndSection
Goes at the very end of xorg.conf , at the bottom of the file, you should see something like EndSection , thats where you put that DRI settings... like this..

Code:
EndSection

 Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
 EndSection

Still no luck. Also, my xorg.conf shows:
Code:
Section "Device"
        ### Available Driver options are:-
        ### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
        ### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
        ### [arg]: arg optional
        #Option     "ShadowFB"                  # [<bool>]
        #Option     "DefaultRefresh"            # [<bool>]
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "vesa"
        VendorName  "Intel Corp."
        BoardName   "Unknown Board"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection
I tried changing vesa to i915 and X wouldnt work. When i.

Change it to i810, make sure you have "load glx" "load dri" where they belong, and the Dri Section at the end.

No matching Device section for instance {BusID PCI:0:2:1)
-----------

that probably is your tv-out.

i miss the frequency settings in the monitor section ?
like :

------------
HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160
------------

( those values ar for my monitor )

also can you take a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to find errors ( marked (EE) )

edit : and how about the display resolution in section "screen ?
like :

-------
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" <-----resolution
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
-------

I see what you mean now about the missing resolutions. I assume this happened when I ran /usr/X11R6/bin/xorgsetup, since it rewrites a new xorg.conf.

Also, how can I go about getting my monitor frequency?
If I had them I could run xorgconfig and maybe that will help. I had them for my old laptop but I can not remember how I got them. I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 laptop.

but isn't it strange that xorg is running without the config file giving a
resolution or monitor freqencies ?
( i don't understand... )

Yeah it is. When I ran /etc/X11R6/bin/xorgsetup it made the xorg.conf without resolution or monitor frequencies. I still have not found my lcd frequencies. Thanks
