    Just do a file search for files named radeon.ko and drm.ko -- you'll probably find them in two places.

    One will be where you put the files, and the other will be where you need to put the files

    I figured out the correct dir for ArchLinux which is
    /lib/modules/2.6.29-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/ for drm.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.29-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/ for radeon.ko
    for which you have to backup the existing ones so you do not overwrite. I have tried to manually run drm.ko and radeon.ko with modprobe and get these errors:
    FATAL: Error inserting drm (/lib/modules/2.6.29-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/drm.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    FATAL: Error inserting radeon (/lib/modules/2.6.29-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/radeon.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    In the dmesg output I get these errors:
    drm: Unknown symbol init_mm
    drm: Unknown symbol init_mm
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_open
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_fasync
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_poll
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_get_resource_len
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_core_get_reg_ofs
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_irq_uninstall
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_get_dev
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_ioctl
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_exit
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_getsarea
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_debug
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_core_ioremapfree
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_core_get_map_ofs
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_init
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_addmap
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_get_resource_start
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_handle_vblank
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_cleanup_pci
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_ati_pcigart_init
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_vblank_init
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_core_ioremap_wc
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_mmap
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_order
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_ati_pcigart_cleanup
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_core_reclaim_buffers
    radeon: Unknown symbol drm_release

    I also updated my kernel to 2.6.29-ARCH and rebuilt the drm accordingly, here is some updated info:

    Instead of manually copying these files, why not just do a "make install" followed by a "depmod -a"?

    I tried at your suggestion but I still have the unknown symbol init_mm error

    I have seen a couple of problems reported building the 6xx-7xx drm branch against drm against the latest 2.6.29 kernel, just in the last week or so. Maybe some last-minute change in the kernel ?

    Anyways, on #radeonhd today one user was able to get past the build problem by locally merging with master, which I guess implies that there's a fix in master which helps. I skimmed the commit list for master and saw some possible candidates but nothing obvious.

    @sadklown: I updated the "drm-radeon-module-git-r6xx-r7xx" package in AUR. I hope your problem is fixed now. At least with kernel 2.6.28.

    Maybe you can give me feedback.

    It worked always with 2.6.28, but not with 2.6.29 - i made a script which fetches git and creates a dkms package - always current then.

    The build has not worked with either 2.6.28 or 2.6.29 for me I get the same error for both "unknown symbol init_mm". I recompiled again to watch the output closer and it warns me about "unknown symbol init_mm", but I do not know how to proceed from here. I will try the new AUR package. If I have any thing to report I certainly will.

    Thanks gang

    I did a search on driver builds failing with init_mm and found a heap of hits, for both NVidia and ATI/AMD, dating back a year or so. Hold on, I'll see if there are any common solutions.

    EDIT - bah,.all the threads start by talking about init_mm then wander off topic and fix a completely different problem ;(

    Hey everyone, I switched to Archlinux 64bit and everything works like a charm now. I just wanted to thank everyone for the help(even though it was all for naught).

    Perry3d, I used your drm PKGBUILD and it worked perfectly once I switched, thany you very much makes everything so much easier.
