@ Patriot: Is there a way to enable DRI for R600-based Radeon cards (HD2000 and HD3000 series) with the xfree86-video-ati driver / Xorg 7.3?

I installed your xfree86-video-ati driver .PET and the Xorg 7.3-1 DRI .PET package on Puppy 4.2.1, restarted X, but DRI was not enabled. The base driver works fine, but without 2D or 3D acceleration:

[dri] Disabling DRI.
(II) RADEON(0): using shadow framebuffer

(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
(EE) RADEON(0): Acceleration initialization failed


glxgears gears move like a slideshow and hardinfo reports that DRI is disabled

Looks like an additional DRI kernel module is needed for these relatively new cards (not included in the Xorg 7.3 DRI .PET)

Frankly, I do not know for sure if it will work on R7.3 ... R6xx/R7xx is currently stated to have experimental 3D according to xorg's wiki here and here... Newer drm (for dri, which you can find here) and mesa (for 3d) is required for it ... (the current R7.3 on puppy is using mesa 6.5.2)

Anyway, I couldn't get past mesa 7.1 on R7.3 previously as I didn't have much time to mess with it then ... Maybe when I have more free time, I'll try mesa 7.2 ... All mesa beginning 7.3 needs xorg server 1.5 ...

guess there is a mistake in the description,usually tdfx drivers are used for voodoo 3,4,5 and voodoo for the voodoo 1 & 2...I didn't test the pets yet so don't know if it is the description that is wrong or the file...
But great effort Smile

Hmm..cirrus driver gives black screen with no clues...I guess thats why barry removed them so that vesa is used instead...support for these cards has worsened with each xorg release...the last good driver was in xf86.

But thanks for trying Smile

I have included the xf86-video-ati-6.12.4-i486 driver into Puppy Stardust (for personal reasons). Thanks Smile ....... Now, could you advice me to choose from the driver list. Is there more of these drivers you know users need to make Puppy fly.

PostPosted: Sat 16 Jan 2010, 23:48    Post subject: SiS 671/771 and Intel D201GLY
Subject description: There are good drivers out there. Are any here?
 

Some time back I started to build a mini-ITX box for a (relatively) low-power Puppy system, using an Intel D201GLY motherboard with built-in Celeron 215 and SiS graphics. When I tried to get the graphics working, nothing was really satisfactory.

Recently, I dusted off that motherboard and tried again. I'm now posting from boxpup 431 on that machine, but the Puppy installation is lucky to reach 1024x768 with 16-bit color. I now have an installation of iMedia Linux 6.0.4 on the same box which I was able to coax into working flawlessly at 1600x1200 on my SGI 21" CRT. Part of the trick was copying the monitor section from the Puppy xorg.conf. Another part was simply adding "1600x1200" to the list of screen sizes (modes). Once X saw that the monitor could handle the high frequencies involved, everything worked. The changes needed were done by Nicu Pavel, and are available on-line.

Now, my big problem here is that this isn't running under Puppy 4.3.1. Their system, released in July 2008, uses a patched kernel 2.6.23 and Xorg 7.2. If I remember correctly, we are currently at kernel 2.6.30.5 and Xorg 7.1. There are good patched drivers now in Mandriva, and possibly some other distributions. Has anyone managed to move these changes into a Puppy 4.3.1 driver?

thanks for the drivers !

mmh, i tried installing every ati pets for my old rage mobility m1 and restarted x and puppy but it didn't seem to work.
both # glxinfo and # glxgears with xrog dri showed garbage in the console meaning it couldn't find glx extension even though my xorg conf was correct.

Later i found that i had to set the resolution to 16bits video mode to make it work so now i see those damn gears. Too bad it's so slow and choppy (around 800 frames in 5 secs = 150 fps ? Feels more like 2 fps ).

Any idea on how to use glx on 24/32 bits ?

Hey patriot, i have a motherboard with via CLE266 chipset. This pet works on puppy 4.3.1 w/ 2.6.30.5 kernel?

xf86-video-openchrome-0.2.904-i486.pet

If not, what dependencies are needed to compile it (i have the devx sfs mounted)?

Yes, it works on all puppy4 series (4.00 - 4.31) that came with Xorg 7.3 ... Depending on the actual vga chipset configuration, you may also want to try openchrome-0.2.903. Some people have better stability with it. In my case, 0.2.904 works better.

I've been puzzling over getting an old laptop to work with composite video out.

Its a
M700 Armada Compaq
With a composite video connector and an Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x chipset.

I've been fiddling with atitvout and it seems that it has video out but its turned off or? Its not available as a second display (or Both) Anyway...

Should I be trying to compile a Rage128 ATI driver and fiddle with my xorg.conf file to try to use it or?! Sorry for the noobishness of this question.
