Default somebody using x11-drm?

Hi,

is somebody using the package x11-base/x11-drm for intel's integrated
graphics?
I'd like to see the output of "dmesg |grep -i drm" to see, of i actually
have some advanatge of using it.


With the kernel's own 2.6.25, my "dmesg|grep -i drm" says:
Apr 23 17:43:08 bert kernel: [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
Apr 23 17:43:08 bert kernel: [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20060119 on
minor 0

Yep, I'm using it (and the kernel module) and I get the same output of
"dmesg | grep drm"

If I remember correctly, only =x11-base/x11-drm-20071019 worked for me
(at least there was a reason for me to put it
in /etc/portage/package.keywords)

I also experienced problems getting one to work and settled with this:
================================
$ dmesg |grep -i drm
[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm] Initialized radeon 1.26.0 20060524 on minor 0
[drm] Used old pci detect: framebuffer loaded
[drm] Setting GART location based on new memory map
[drm] writeback test succeeded in 1 usecs
================================

HTH.

How to determine "drm works"? 'dmesg | grep drm' out is:

[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20060119 on minor 0

'lsmod | grep drm' out is:

drm 92648 3 i915

and 'lspci | grep -i vga' out is:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G965 Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 02)

Let's say it that way: 3D-acceleration works and unmasking
=x11-base/x11-drm-20071019 was part of the solution.

Aha, 3D... I bother about 2D only. Does it mean I can bravely forget all
these drm-related things?

I'm not sure if 2D-acceleration depends on it as well. If you don't
suffer from problems while scrolling, watching videos and so on, you
might not need it.

Default somebody using x11-drm?

is somebody using the package x11-base/x11-drm for intel's integrated
graphics?
I'd like to see the output of "dmesg |grep -i drm" to see, of i actually
have some advanatge of using it.


With the kernel's own 2.6.25, my "dmesg|grep -i drm" says:
Apr 23 17:43:08 bert kernel: [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
Apr 23 17:43:08 bert kernel: [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20060119 on
minor 0


Yep, I'm using it (and the kernel module) and I get the same output of
"dmesg | grep drm"

If I remember correctly, only =x11-base/x11-drm-20071019 worked for me
(at least there was a reason for me to put it
in /etc/portage/package.keywords)


Looking at the sources of that exact version (20071019), i think the
output should be "Initialized i915 1.11.0 20071019".


At least the date should match.

Are you sure, that you use the modules from the gentoo-package and not
the ones from the kernel?

output should be "Initialized i915 1.11.0 20071019".


At least the date should match.


So now, after downgrading to 2.6.24.5 and installing x11-drm, i get the
following output:


[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[drm] Initialized i915 1.11.0 20070209 on minor 0


So indeed, the version is higher than the kernel's driver. But
unfortunatly, i couldn't find any things that are actually fixed now.
