mrkshas anybody set up kms for radeon cards successfully?04:08
sirmaciktime to start looking for free sace for new crux installation ^^04:38
mrkswipe out your archlinux installation :)04:39
teK-arch sounds (for germans) similar to Arsch wich means ass in Englisch04:45
tilmanmrks: kind of. it's quite some work though. not worth it imo (r420 here)04:47
mrkstilman: hmm, could you give me some hints what packages I do need to recompile and what versions to use?04:52
mrksI followed the kms section on
mrksbut no luck so far04:52
tilmanyou _need_ xf86-video-ati from git/master to use kms04:54
mrkskernel config should be okay I think,
tilmanif you want DRI, too, you need to build libdrm from git/master (i think) with --enable-experimental-radeon-blabla04:54
mrksyep, did that04:54
tilmannot sure whether the current stable mesa suffices, but i think it should04:55
tilmanmrks: well, what's the problem?04:55
mrkshm, xorg fails to start. from the log: [dri] radeon kernel module version is 2.0.0 but version 1.8.0 or newer is needed.04:56
tilmanheh, i had the same problem04:56
* tilman tries to remember how he fixed it04:56
mrksis this a reason xorg fails to start?04:56
tilmanum, apparently :P04:56
mrksor should it run just without direct rendering04:56
mrksk, it's the only error I see04:57
tilmanno, x without dri = lame04:57
mrkswhich version of xorg-server did you use?04:57
tilmanthe one from the xorg ports04:57
tilmanthe xserver doesn't really matter when it comes to kms04:57
mrksah, okay04:57
tilmankms is a ddx (x driver) thing04:57
mrksand what is this ddx thingy?04:58
mrksisn't this a part from xorg-server?04:58
tilmanin our case, the ddx is xf86-video-ati04:58

tilmanwhy is that ':O'?10:58
thrice`a little scary :)11:00
thrice`in that, they can release a stable x-server, with it breaking against stable drivers11:01
tilmanand it definitely _is_ a bug if that whacko driver can bring down the server...11:02
thrice`   others seem to agree :>11:08
