#349 yellow screen instead of scene

Rendering Error
ATI OpenGL (71)

Compiled XFree86 4.1.0 against linux 2.4.5, w/ matching
glibc 2.1.3.
Dual P3 1000 on an abit vp6

Everything seems ok, glxinfo reports good to go, direct
rendering enabled.

Any GL program displays as a yellow window, except
glplanet, which displays yellow with pink spots. HG2
demo shows some vertical stripes of scenery if I flip
virtual consoles a few times.

No errors anywhere, no crashes, no blood, no Dallas,
Nothing! Help.

Software rendering works fine.

    I seem to recall seeing that once ago. Either the card was
    or it wasn't fully seated in the AGP slot. Is your card
    known to
    work correctly, perhaps with Windows?

    I have the same problem with a ati rage128 fury.
    xfree-4.1.0 gives me a yellow screen with quake3.
    2d overlay things like "health meter" and "ammo meter" in
    quake3 will be drawn correctly, but anything 3d will be yellow.
    when I go back to xfree-4.0.3 the problem goes away and
    everything will be drawn correctly again.
    at first I thought it might be drm out of 0.7 drivers I
    compiled a while ago.
    but I cleaned up my modules directory (rm'ed it) and
    recompiled my kernel with drm that comes with linux-2.4.5
    this didn't fix it either.
    I pretty sure this is not hardware related.

    I think I found the solution, at least this one worked for me.
    I compiled the r128.o module from the xfree-4.1.0 source.


    and moved it to:

    so I guess dri doesn't work ok with the drm r128.o module that
    comes with linux-2.4.5

    I can confirm that zyphr's solution worked for me. My ATI
    Rage Pro was giving only yellow screens for glxgears (DRI
    enabled, XFree86 4.1.0, kernel 2.4.5) until I recompiled the
    kernel module from the 4.1.0 source tree. Works beautifully
