Right! Kernel helped. Thanks to all who spooned me through this.
With CONFIG_DRM not set, I could (Once more) compile a kernel, and once more
compile kernel modules. Glxgears gets shot down instantly by a hardened system
with DRI, but glxinfo tells me I have DRI. I'll file a separate bug for that to
them. I haven't marked this as fixed, because you have problems.
1. Documentation is way behind, especially the website.
2. The build system is nothing short of shambolic, if my experience is
anything to go by. Sorry to nag. I checked out just about everything out of CVS
and could not go from source. I can download a tar.gz of nearly anything else
and build it to suit my system. Not DRI or Mesa. I suffered trying to get
3. There is a need for being able to pass separate CFLAGS to the kernel from
the ones used for Mesa. HLFS have this trick of putting
I used that with success in the linux-core/Makefile.kernel but had to do a bit
of fairly inspirational (for a user) reverse engineering to find where to put it.
4. You need to sort out the DRM kernel issues, or ask them to remove it
from the source. I'm sure they would be glad to save the weight.
Settle on one <expletive-deleted> way of building your code, and perfect that.
To hell with binary releases - That's the m$ way, and it has cost me an
unreasonable amount of effort to get this far.
/FINALLY clears off and leaves you guys alone :-)
