Hi guys, first let me introduce myself, my name is Heron Ordoñez, and i own
a i810 card, i dont use a distribution since i compiled all my software from
sources (LFS-HOWTO, if you are interested).
well, this year's build was like: glibc-2.2.4, linux-2.4.17,
Xfree86-420..... and so on.
i used to have DRI working in this same computer, with kernel 2.4.1 and
X4.0.1... and quake3 was really smooth and all, but i cant get it to work
with the newest versions of everything.... it first complained about version
issues, thats solved compiling the kernel modules from within the xc source
tree, then, the logs seemed to complain about a "char-major-226" module not
being found (again solved with the proper config of the /etc/modules.conf),
and now the X log shows that the kernel drivers are working, and that X (
--depth 16) starts the DRI with no problems, but glxinfo reports no direct
rendering, and any 3d app works like it should (quake3 and rune_demo, not to
mention the xmms gl visualizations plugins)
reading through this mailing list, i read that MAYBE the problem is about a
library? (i810_drv.so?), anyway , my X log does only report 2 warnings. (no
errors).. one telling that the AGPMode option in the config file is not used
and other telling something about agp memory.... (is this the problem)?
BUT also reports Direct Rendering Enabled just after that warning....
so what can it be?
please help me, i know you guys can get me fragging again in no time....
