Default Bug#686080: radeon: "This chipset requires a kernel module version of 1.17.0"

What version of xserver-xorg-video-radeon do you have?

It sounds like it is slightly out of date (and the modesetting ABI is
unfortunately still not as stable as we would like it to be).

Curious,
Jonathan

Not necessarily. The above means that KMS is enabled in the kernel, but
the X driver is using UMS. This cannot work properly. Make sure the
radeon kernel module is loaded before X starts.

Good catch. Sorry for the nonsense.

Now that you mention it, I seem to remember this coming up before
once (for a different reason). The X server message is not very
clear; is that fixable?

Dawid, could you provide a full kernel log ("dmesg" output) from
booting a woorking and a non-working kernel?

Sorry for the confusion,
Jonathan

No I can't, because I checked old kernel, and now is also working
I removed this modeset option from grub, reload, and all is fine
I'm providing logs anyway, maybe it will help

It was improved upstream in the meantime, but current upstream no longer
supports UMS anyway.

Default Bug#686080: radeon: "This chipset requires a kernel module version of 1.17.0"

xorg version: 1:7.5+8

I was thinking what else i did, and i remind my self that meantime
kernel compilation, there was a massage that I maybe need packet
module-init-tools, and I installed it. Maybe that is a problem?

Sure, can you reproduce this using kmod instead of module-init-tools?

But I expect it's related to the set of installed firmware.

Yes I probably can if you tell me how.
I don't understand why old kernel is now working
Does kernel modifying some config files?

By installing kmod and removing the module-init-tools package and
trying again.

Make sure you have kmod installed, though. If you don't, your package
manager will correctly say "This is dangerous!" and it would be time
to cancel the test.
