xf86-video-ati-6.8.0-r1 problems
 
Hi All,

Just emerged x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.8.0-r1 (I was previously using
x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.6.3 and noticed this in my Xorg.0.log:
==========================================
(--) RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY (AGP)" (ChipID = 0x4c59)
(--) RADEON(0): Linear framebuffer at 0x0000000048000000
(II) RADEON(0): AGP card detected
(II) RADEON(0): Legacy BIOS detected
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
[dri] Disabling DRI.
==========================================

I looked in the log because my desktop font suddenly grew in size
significantly (I am guessing that it grew from 12PS to 14-16PS). Any idea if
there's anything I can do other than reverting to previous package?

According to this there are no module named radeon in /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/video
Maybe new package renamed module? Try find it and load manually using modprobe.

Well, it's not there . . .

all I have is:

I think you're right. Not only I did not find a radeon module under kernel
modules, but I noticed that the package actually installed this instead:

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so

modprobing either module fails . . .

What now? I am not sure if this is bug.

That's strange. But try one more thing - copy this radeon_drv from /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers to /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/video

Because according to modprobe's man page, by default it will look driver in /lib/modules/...
So try to copy it and write here, what will modprobe say

First I linked it:

# ls -la /lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/video/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 144 Jul 17 22:21 .

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 43 Jul 17 22:21
radeon.so -> /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so

but since that did not work, I copied it:

# ls -la /lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/video/
total 448
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 176 Jul 17 22:27 .

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 448808 Jul 17 07:09 radeon_drv.so

Modprobing either of the two fails with the same error message.

That's because this is not a kernel module.


drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
[dri] Disabling DRI.


I'm just guessing here, but maybe your kernel is missing DRM support for
your graphics chip.

What's the output of grep -i radeon /boot/config-$(uname -r) ?

Hi,

I think this problem is not *-ati (driver) related. Since the module needed for
drm has the same name as the driver has, but resides in another directory.


I would suggest you to check whether x11-base/x11-drm or to the kernel module is
build for drm.
Since I am using the package mentioned above, there is a .ko called
"/lib/modules/<version>/x11-drm/radeon.ko". The kernel module for ati drm
resides in "/lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/char/radeon.ko".

Hope this helps.

Regards,

acm.
