  • X1400: Trouble with KMS

    Hi, I just updated to .31 (enabling the staging drivers and radeon KMS). I've rebooted, recompiled xorg, xf86-video-ati, libdrm and mesa yet I don't get any hardware acceleration.

    glxinfo | grep render outputs an annoying "Software Rasterizer".

    Is there any guide on how to enable KMS or is there anything I'm not doing/doing wrong?

    The card is an X1400 Mobility and the distro is Gentoo x86_64.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you compile libdrm with the --enable-radeon-experimental-api option? Can you attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to a post here?

      I found out the problem. I had to recompile the kernel without any framebuffer support as they someone broke this driver.

      Sorry for bothering.

        It's not a matter of "breaking the driver" -- the whole idea of KMS is to provide a single framebuffer driver (the KMS one) and have all graphics clients including the console go through that one driver rather than each driver hitting the hardware separately.

        The independent framebuffer drivers should be considered deprecated under KMS.
