Default Radeon Driver help

I am currently running version Ubuntu 9.10 with all updates applied.
When I try to generate 3D graphics under Mathematica, I receive the
following error message:


radeon_lock.c:65: radeonGetLock: Assertion `drawable != ((void *)0)' failed.

Google found the same message under FreeDesktop Bugzilla – Bug 22851 at:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org//show_bug.cgi?id=22851

The status is "Resolved Fixed", with a modification date of 2009-11-25.

Since I am still receiving this error, is there any advice as to how to
incorporate the fix, or reason why it is not incorporated?


Thanks

Make sure you have the right driver with the fix incorporated - check
with ATI maybe?

I have been away from kernel development for awhile, but aren't the
drivers still part of the kernel distribution? It has been over a year
since the fix was posted. I was curious to know what was correct
list/path to suggest that the fix be incorporated into the Ubuntu
distribution. It there is a reason why it was not incorporated, I wanted
to know what it was.

I use NVidia video cards so I can't answer your question directly.

I would check with Synaptic to find out which driver you have and make
sure it is the right one.

If the L&G in the repository is not the right one, you can file a bug
at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu.

You might also check with ATI, as I said - sometimes there is a
discrepancy between the Ubuntu repositories and the manufacturer's
drivers. I run NVidia's proprietary driver version 260.19.12 because
when I tried to use the one in the Ubuntu repository (same version),
it didn't work right with my machines. Others have not had this
problem. YMMV.

Did you notice that the driver problem was resolved AFTER your version
of Ubuntu was released? Generally, the updates are only for security
issues. I wouldn't expect to get the driver fix automatically.


Have you considered moving to a newer version of Ubuntu?

I am running version 2.6.31-22-generic kernel, which is the latest I see
under synaptic. Would a later distribution use a different kernel? I had
assumed that the latest kernels were applied during an update. Please
advise if I am incorrect. Version 2.3.37 is the latest at kernel.org.

On Maverick the latest Radeon driver is:

xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.13.1-1ubuntu5
X.Org X server -- AMD/ATI Radeon display driver

From Synaptic:

"This package provides the 'radeon' driver for the AMD/ATI Radeon, FireGL,
FireMV, FirePro and FireStream series.
Note that this is not the same as the ATI-provided, binary-only, 'fglrx'
driver, which provides additional 3D functionality for some newer Radeon
cards, but is not supported.
More information about X.Org can be found at:
<URL:http://www.X.org>
This package is built from the X.org xf86-video-ati driver module."

I use Ubuntu 10.04 and my kernel is 2.6.32-27-generic.

Thanks. I will try ti upgrade my system. At present I cannot find an ftp
site with the 10.04 and 10.10 iso images. All I can find are bittorent
site which will not work through my provider. Fedora was much easier!
