    Unhappy xorg, ati r200 free driver, suddenly no hardware acceleration

    Hardware acceleration seems to be completely gone from one day to another. It was working ok and today I noticed it isn't anymore. I'm using radeon r200 free driver.

    [pedro@spacelab ~]$ $ glxgears -info
    GL_RENDERER = Mesa GLX Indirect
    GL_VERSION = 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
    GL_VENDOR = Mesa project: (...)

    I tried to delete xorg.conf and restart X, but the situation didn't changed. system-config-display couldn't help also, but it correctly reports my card as Radeon 9200 SE. I don't have any idea why this is happening since it was working before.

    Here goes my xorg.conf. I'd appreciate if someone could compare with his own copy to see if mine is lacking something:

    [root@spacelab X11]# cat xorg.conf
    # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "single head configuration"
    Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbModel" "abnt2"
    Option "XkbLayout" "br"

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard0"
    Driver "radeon"

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Videocard0"

    From my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

    (WW) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP not available
    (EE) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP failed to initialize. Disabling the DRI.
    (II) RADEON(0): [agp] You may want to make sure the agpgart kernel module is loaded before the radeon kernel module. (...)

    Any ideas?
