  • HD 3850 agp

    Hi. I have this video card and Gentoo Linux. I downloaded driver from AMD site, installed it and get very high load cpu X in windows operations (60%-90%). I apply "backclear" patch and load cpu decreased, but not all windows operations. Now i install "radeon" driver and load cpu 20%-30%. I try install ati-driver from Gentoo portage and get this message:

    * You have DRM support built in to the kernel
    * Direct rendering will not work.
    * ati-drivers-9.11 requires MSI in the kernel.
    * Please enable it:
    * CONFIG_PCI_MSI=y
    * in /usr/src/linux/.config or
    * Bus options (PCI etc.) --->
    *[*] Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X)
    * in the kernel config.
    *
    * ERROR: x11-drivers/ati-drivers-9.11 failed.
    But i have agp card. Why PCI_MCI? What to do?

    The AGP 3850 card uses a PCIE GPU combined with a PCIE-to-AGP bridge chip, so it may use MSI interrupts between the GPU and the bridge chip, not sure.

    If you enable MSI in the kernel does the error message go away ?

      I have not found CONFIG_PCI_MSI in .config. Kernel 2.6.30

        If it's left unchecked in the kernel config, it's doubtful that you will find it in the .config file.

            Using xconfig is probably the easiest.

                make menuconfig
                hit the '/' key and search for MSI

                  I did it.

                  Symbol: PCI_MSI [=n] │
                  │ Prompt: Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X) │
                  │ Defined at drivers/pci/Kconfig:8 │
                  │ Depends on: PCI && ARCH_SUPPORTS_MSI │
                  │ Location: │
                  │ -> Bus options (PCI etc.) │
                  │ Selected by: AMD_IOMMU && X86_64 && PCI && ACPI
                  But i can`t find it in "Bus options"

                    Select Local APIC support on uniprocessors and see if it shows up.
