In a brief email chat with Mike Westall about some of the current r128
problems I've seen (lockups, [drm:r128_freelist_get] *ERROR* returning
NULL errors, etc) I began to wonder.
Since the majority of AGP rage128's out there seem to be 32 megs of vram,
and both Mr. Westall and myself have 16 megs, and problems, I thought, if
nobody minds, I would take an informal poll of rage128 owners on the lists
to see what hardware does and doesn't seem to work.
This may or may not have any bearing on bug #126435, but hopefully it will
help those of us with troubled setups.
Here's the questions, Please reply directly to me, and I'll send out
compiled results in a day or so.
1> Is the recent DRI driver working for you with your rage128 card?
2> What kernel version?
3> Which r128 chipset? (look for:
(--) R128(0): Chipset: "ATI Rage 128 RF (AGP)" (ChipID = 0x5246)
In your /var/log/XFree86.0.log
4> How much VRAM? (look for a line like:
(**) R128(0): VideoRAM: 16384 kByte (128-bit SDR SGRAM 1:1)
in your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file.
5> Does it share IRQs with any devices? (Don't know if interrupts are
even used in the driver but it might help)
6> Who made your card (if known) "OEM from Gateway" or "OEM from Dell" is
good enough :)
Again, please reply directly to me so we don't clutter up the list, and as
soon as I have a decent sample size I'll post results.
Thanks, and thanks for the PI (VA) folks for all the hard work!
