  • Sapphire x1650 Pro AGP and radeonhd

    Hey everyone, after hearing the success of getting 3D on the radeonhd drivers I decided to try them out seeing as installing the fglrx drivers gives me a black screen and lockup.
    The driver works great in 2D acceleration but whenever I enable DRI in my xorg.conf, the 2d acceleration slows down considerable: scrolling on firefox causes the whole screen to lag.

    Looking at my xorg log it seems that this error repeats itself looking at a whole list of devices but not being about to find anything.
    Any help would be appreciated
    Code:
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    drmOpenByBusid: Searching for BusID pci:0000:01:00.0
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -19
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card1
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -19
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card2
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -19
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card3
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)

    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    
    Then at the end of this part
    (EE) RADEONHD(0): [dri] RHDDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
    [dri] Disabling DRI.

    Please show us your *full* Xorg.0.log file as well as the output of 'dmesg | grep drm'.

    Also, you should know that, last I heard, 2D and 3D acceleration does not work at the same time with the radeonhd driver, but it should work fine with the 'radeon' driver.

      There's the result from the grep
      # dmesg | grep drm
      [62.313742] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810



      Here's a link to my xorg log

        I'm guessing that your DRM is too old. Did you update that from git, too? What's the output of 'lsmod | grep radeon' ? If it's not showing up there, run 'sudo modprobe radeon' and then check the output of 'dmesg | grep drm' again.

          jonathan@jonathan-desktop:~$ lsmod | grep radeon
          radeon 124192 0
          drm 82452 1 radeon

          yeah, I did update it from git. Well I followed the instructions that are on the xorg wiki. It seemed to work.

            Still no output from 'dmesg | grep drm' ? How about if you do a 'sudo rmmod radeon && sudo modprobe radeon'. Anything in the dmesg then?

              That's what I get, I guess the fact that it's from 2006 indicates that there's a problem, I assume?

                No, 2006 is right for the drm module. However, you should also get something like:

                [drm] Initialized radeon 1.29.0 20080528 on minor 0
                [drm] Setting GART location based on new memory map
                [drm] Loading R500 Microcode

                Can you tell me exactly what steps you took to update your DRM?

                  I followed the steps here to update the DRM
                  http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhdRI

                  But I seem to be getting errors about opening a minor, so perhaps there's a problem that's stopping it from loading properly?
                  drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card3
                  drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
                  drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
                  drmOpenDevice: Open failed
                  drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -19

                    Xorg just isn't finding the dri device, but that's because the kernel module isn't loading.

                    What's the output of 'find /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ -iname "radeon.ko" -exec ls -la {} \; '
