thrice`mm, I had a nice "No Kernel Modesetting found" last night after bumping :(  KMS is definitely there, though06:53
*** jdolan has quit IRC06:53
pitillothrice`: must be used (forced) kernel mode settings with intel drivers? (I got problems enabling it, but haven't tested with the bump)06:57
thrice`I've been using KMS very successfully for months now (and am quite positive about it working).06:58
tilmani'm afraid the latest intel driver doesn't support UMS (ie non-kms)06:58
pitillowell, I'll check again with the last bump (old intel card 855GM if I don't remember bad)06:59
thrice`tilman, right, which I've been using fine for awhile now :p06:59
tilmanthrice`: and the new server broke it?06:59
thrice`"unsure" :)07:00
thrice`will try again tonight with $beer and such07:00
pitillothank you for clarify that tilman07:00
thrice`but it spat back "no dri, no dri2, no KMS, eating your computer!!"07:00

tilmanpitillo: does the kernel's help says that 855gm is supported?07:07
pitillotilman: I think so, I must review kernel version (I don't remember atm which one I was using, reading atm and with .33 there is support for 855gm if I don't understand it bad)07:08
tilmanaccording to Kconfig, there are two drivers that support 855gm:07:10
tilmanfirst is DRM_I83007:11
tilmansecond is DRM_I91507:11
tilmanonly DRM_I915 supports the KMS stuff etc07:11
tilmanso enable DRM_I915 and disable DRM_I83007:11
pitilloI remember in my case only worked the i91507:11
tilmanalso enable DRM_I815_KMS07:11
pitilloyes, that's the config I used some weeks ago, I will remake tests this afternoon with your tips07:11
*** Rotwang has quit IRC07:14
pitilloI will try to share my experience this afternoon, like thrice` said, $beer and stuff it's needed here too07:14
tilmanokay, let me know how it goes07:17
pitillotilman: yes of course, thank you very much :)07:20
tilmanwhat login manager is everyone using?07:29
tilmanslightly annoyed at slim:
thrice`don't crux guys maintain slim yet? :)07:39
luxhi login to console and type startx07:39
teK_luxh: this shows the console for a brief moment, too07:40
luxhtilman could just close his eyes for 2 seconds when quitting and the problem would go away :p07:41
teK_improving the behaviour won't hurt, either.07:42

spacenin1adoes anyone else experience problems with the scroll on openbox when you scroll between desktops?09:28
spacenin1ait jumps 2 or 3, back and forth with one "scroll"09:29
*** makaxo has joined #crux09:30
spacenin1aoh no, I get this when I try to start x (EE) module ABI major version (6) doesn't match the server's version (7)10:20
Rotwangrecompile teh driver10:21
tilmanboth video and input driver10:24
tilmanspacenin1a: re. scrolling: this happens when you more than 1 keybinding/mousebinding for the scroll action10:34
spacenin1ayes x is working, but the scroll is still wierd, I got both xorg-xf86-input-mouse and evdev installed10:35
tilmancheck your config10:35
tilmanyou can use evdev for the mouse, too10:35
pitillohello again tilman, enabling kms I got black screen when the module is loaded (2.6.33 with 915) I remember now why I didn't enable KMS, atm making some test10:36
tilmanany hints in dmesg>10:36
pitilloummm black screen due a kernel panic10:37
spacenin1athis is my xorg.conf, it looks ok
tilmanopenbox config!10:38
pitilloI will try with a newer kernel and look if the error persist10:38
pitillonothing related to xorg, but thank you anyway, I will tell if I get something10:39
tilmanpitillo: kernel panic is always a bug -- maybe already knows about it. if it doesn't, you should file a bug10:40
pitilloI will try to read about at bugzilla (plenty of info about 855GM always)10:41
pitilloand a good point to look for info about how to dump the kernel errors (a bit more research at kernel debug level...)10:41
