Re: How about releasing an update of xorg-x11-drv-intel for Fedora 11



Hi,

I actually (think?) that I fixed the issue. It's all related to a
check in the intel i915 drm code in the kernel, which is still present
in the latest Fedora 2.6.30.8-64 kernel. It's in the form of
data->has_gem = !IS_8XX(dev) ? 1 : 0, which gets the whole gem stuff
disabled for my i855GM. I compared with a stock kernel and found that
it was enabled by default for all the intel chips and just reverted
that change (and kept the other redhat patches, such as the mchbar and
the suspend/restore code) and well, it fixed my problem with Xv. I
think that the has_gem thing is exported for X11 and Xv user-space
through a GEM ioctl property and it doesn't interfere with the rest of
the kernel drm code. Anyway, it's working here :) Any confirmation
from redhat's engineers?

Regards,
Ilyes Gouta.
