Ati Mach64 Dri Direct Rendering Driver Linux Rage Pro Fedora

Um... But I'll be using Norton Ghost to go back to where I was this afternoon. ;-) -Warr makisushiApril 11th, 2005, 12:53 AMThank you for this nice Howto : this is the Compiling... Do I have to modify my XF86Config file or something? http://tbapplication.com/ati-mach64/ati-mach64-gx-pci-driver.html

ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules. There's nothing wrong with switching to 24 bpp for a session, if you plan on not playing any games nor even flash animations, but for anything that needs graphics speed, 16 This will allow you to test the latest features and bug fixes. Therefore you have to edit your xorg.conf in /etc/X11. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=185162

Even the 120fps to 180fps makes a huge difference to the usability of the system. I need them, too! I am getting an error though with libGL, see both attachments. xorg-x11-drv-sis 2.6.25.4-10.fc8.i686-drm.ko[-mach64.ko,-sis.ko] Due to failure of kernel-2.6.25.4-10.fc8.i686 to boot on my machines, I was unable to test anything.

The following procedure enables DRI on this notebook, while the basic installation of Ubuntu Dapper Flight 5 does not. For basic effects, install (and use) xcompmgr (provides basic window shadows and translucency). I'm sure that there is a way to automate this, but I haven't yet gotten around to figuring it out. Knowing that will help when comparing performance.

ChaoZNovember 22nd, 2005, 03:00 PMhi from germany! Could you post your modprobe.conf? Be prepared for problems every now and then. https://books.google.com/books?id=N0_u-gDipvYC&pg=PA290&lpg=PA290&dq=ati+mach64+dri+direct+rendering+driver+linux+rage+pro+fedora&source=bl&ots=1jJXbfWHgN&sig=UriP6C610SKJ6kOyJ1rn00GUY6o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiEwLyjxv7S if you had problems before, you might want to try it again.

I'm using version common-20060403-linux.i386.tar.bz2 of the dri package. I'll try to have a look at them when I have a minute and see if I can see the problem. The 3D DRI may inexplicably fail if you do not have enough VRAM to view the display at a minimal resolution. However, older kmods will also continue to work with these other updates (at least, kmods for 2.6.24.7-92.fc8 work with the new packages).

So i need to change my gcc from 4.0 to 3.4? 0000:00:0e.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro 215GP (rev 5c) Also, i dont have a bios battery, his comment is here all of the default options should be ok. On my AMD-machine there is no need for the linux-686-package, isn't it ? I tried to install the 3d accelerated dri driver as described in this thread.

My video card only has 8MB, and a depth of 24 required 9600 KB of videor memory. My thanks to those who supported this project. =========================================== Fedora includes 3D video drivers that provide direct (aka "hardware-accelerated") rendering (DRI) for a number of older and off-name (i.e., other than reh4cMarch 11th, 2006, 11:20 AMAlso useful link is you have some problems with DRI (AGP or DRM) is: [http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/DriTroubleshooting] Hope that this helps you with mach64 problems \\:D/ Thanks again for http://tbapplication.com/ati-mach64/ati-mach64-vt-drivers.html Starting with kernel-2.6.27.5-37.fc9, the drm.ko goes in folder /lib/modules//kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/ and the mach64.ko goes in folder (create if needed) /lib/modules//kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/mach64/.

I have no idea why I don't get that working. I noted that Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" in xorg.conf caused the x server to crash in that version. sudo ./install.sh 6.

As detailed in Post #91, as of F12, the Mach64 DRM kmod source code is no longer present in either X.Org or Kernel trees.

My 8MB graphics chip (ATI Rage Mobility P/M) will only support 16 due to memory requirements. 2. 'sudo apt-get install linux-headers-386 build-essential' 3. If at any time you're unsure about how to proceed, or something goes wrong, STOP, and post back here with details. Besides that, Chris authored Linux Bible 2009 Edition and co-wrote CentOS Bible, Linux Troubleshooting Bible and Linux Toys II for Wiley Publishing. Unfortunately, there are no good ones readily available, so glxgears will have to do.

I can't find them...but the drivers still clearly load and work. /var/log/Xorg.0.log is clean and clear as it describes the drivers probing and loading. If so, run glxgears again to get some idea of how well the new 3D driver is performing. thanks alot ati_pcigart.c god person... http://tbapplication.com/ati-mach64/ati-mach64-gx-pci-drivers.html Freedom is a feature With Fedora's new Online Desktop, you are free to shape your desktop environment to include the services, applications, and online friends you desire.

Without DRI, X.org/XFree86 will use software rendering for OpenGL and 3D which is really slow. * The X driver this page is about has nothing to do with DRI. Download the latest common and mach64 snapshots from http://dri.freedesktop.org. 4. Quote: Then copy libGL.so.1.2, libGLU.so.1.3.070100, libglut.so.3.7.1, and libGLw.so.1.0.0 to folder /usr/lib/, overwriting the existing files (if necessary).

Open a terminal as any user and command: glxgears. I will not held responsible for any "damage" that using this file causes! :) ..... For the record: only libGL.so.* is absolutely required, you do not need those other extra libs (libGLU*, libGLw*, libglut*) unless you also have packages mesa-libGLU, mesa-libGLw, and/or freeglut installed. Thanx for the info.

hope this works for you mr_edMarch 14th, 2005, 08:53 PMHey, no problem. DICIP CEBIN DIM TO KILL PEOPLE AN RADIATE PEOPLE. I am making them available for anyone who wishes to try them. V Last edited by Hlingler; 27th December 2009 at 11:36 AM.
