Thread: DRI modules and Radeon

  1. #1

    DRI modules and Radeon

    According to my XFree86 log DRI is enabled.

    Code:
    (II) RADEON(0): Acceleration enabled
    (II) RADEON(0): Using hardware cursor (scanline 3080)
    (II) RADEON(0): Largest offscreen area available: 1024 x 2299
    (II) RADEON(0): X context handle = 0x00000001
    (II) RADEON(0): [drm] installed DRM signal handler
    (II) RADEON(0): [DRI] installation complete
    (II) RADEON(0): [drm] Added 32 65536 byte vertex/indirect buffers
    (II) RADEON(0): [drm] Mapped 32 vertex/indirect buffers
    (II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering enabled
    However typing glxinfo I get:

    Code:
    name of display: :0.0
    @@Created GLX Context..
    display: :0 screen: 0
    direct rendering: No
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.2
    server glx extensions:
      GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context
    client glx vendor string: Brian Paul
    client glx version string: 1.2 Mesa 3.0
    client glx extensions:
      GLX_utah_direct_0_2, GLX_no_accel
    I'm not sure if there's supposed to be more radeon files or not but I don't have a radeon_dri.o or radeon_drm.o file anywhere. I installed X using apt, and am wondering if I should have installed with the sh script.

    I got it working!! All I needed to do was install mesa3 libs. : Figures it would have been something easy.

    How dumb do you feel now ?

    The DRI guide mentions the need for OpenGL over and over again.

    You DO NOT need to install Mesa separately. The parts of Mesa needed for hardware acceleration are already in the XFree86/DRI project
    Not very since I did have to install Mesa seperatly.

    Yeah, but you still need some sort of OpenGL environment... Mesa provides that for you.... but hell the important thing is that now you have X accelerated - Congrats ASCI

    How goes the plans for world domination ?

    Thanks for your helpful hint! The "Direct rendering enabled" vs. "direct rendering: no" was very confusing. I searched all over the web before finding your post. Installing the xlibmesa-gl package Debian/unstable fixed all my 3d acceleration woes. (-;

    Now, glxgears outputs a much better 1800fps (improved from 300fps previously).
