Re: Radeon Mobility M6 LY 3D acceleration on FC2



Hi,

almost same here with Radeon 9600 Pro. If you'll look a bit further in XOrg.log you will probably find something similar to

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering not yet supported on Radeon 9500/9700 and newer cards

Regards, vadim tarassov.

I've just done a fresh FC2 install on a Sony PGC-Z1XSP which comes with an ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY and a 1400x1050 panel. 2D is fine, but according to glxinfo (and visible with glxgears and gl apps) direct rendering isn't enabled.

I believe that the standard kernel and xorg modules should support 3D acceleration with this chip, so there's clearly something wrong with my setup. I can't see anything obvious (to me) amiss and I've checked bugzilla and STFA'd without finding anything helpful, so any advice from this list would be much appreciated.

lspci -v gives me this for the controller,

 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon \
   Mobility M6 LY (prog-if 00 [VGA])
         Subsystem: Sony Corporation: Unknown device 8140
         Flags: bus master, stepping, fast Back2Back, 66Mhz, medium \
   devsel, latency 66, IRQ 9
         Memory at d8000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)
         I/O ports at 3000 [size=256]
         Memory at d0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
         Capabilities: [58] AGP version 2.0
         Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2

I find the following in /var/log/messages,

 kernel: Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
 kernel: agpgart: Detected an Intel 855PM Chipset.
 kernel: agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 941M
 kernel: agpgart: AGP aperture is 256M @ 0xe0000000
 ...
 kernel: [drm] Initialized radeon 1.9.0 20020828 on minor 0

However, lsmod doesn't show the radeon module, which I think should be expected.

My xorg.conf includes,

 Section "Module"
         Load  "dbe"
         Load  "extmod"
         Load  "fbdevhw"
         Load  "glx"
         Load  "record"
         Load  "freetype"
         Load  "type1"
         Load  "dri"
 EndSection

and,

 Section "DRI"
         Group        0
         Mode         0666
 EndSection

And /var/log/Xorg shows the controller being correctly detected and identified and the dri/drm/ati/radeon modules loading successfully. However, towards the end I see,

 (II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled

Any help and/or pointers would be much appreciated. Any other relevant info available on request.

TIA ...

Cheers,


Miles
