Re: dri disabled



Okay, I should mention that I recompiled the kernel myself, I suppose
it's possible I mucked that up.

Hmmm...I don't claim to be a graphics expert, but the following line
makes me nervous.

cnkeller $ rpm -V kernel-2.4.9-13 | grep radeon
missing    /lib/modules/2.4.9-13/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.o
missing    /lib/modules/2.4.9-13/kernel/drivers/video/radeonfb.o


I'm going to go out on a limb here, you guys just bear with
me....somehow I managed to unconfigure some graphics stuff when I
recompiled my kernel. 

The radeonfb I actually compiled into the kernel, so I don't expect the
module to be there. I wasn't able to get console framebuffers working
without compiling the radeonfb directly into the kernel; I really like
the penguin on bootup. If anyone knows how to get that working as a
module, I'm all ears.


I do have this though

cnkeller $ locate radeon.o
/usr/src/linux-2.4.9-13/drivers/char/drm-4.0/radeon.o
/lib/modules/2.4.9-7/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.o
/lib/modules/2.4.9-13/kernel/drivers/char/drm-4.0/radeon.o

I'm not sure what the difference is between drm and drm-4.0, but it's
pretty obivous that it was there in a previous kernel.

Long story short, me thinks that I need to re-check my .config file for
the kernel.....????
