    The dri device is not initialized at /dev/dri

    Does this has to do with something wrong at modprobe.conf??

    Just guessing...

    djdoo@dhcppc0:~> dmesg | grep drm

    Please take a look...
    your drm is too old. You need the drm from drm git. I thought you had an rs400, not an rs690.

    @Alex:
    OK I uninstalled the libdrm suse packages and grabbed drm from here:
    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/drm
    Configured it like that:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64
    Installed them (output sais /usr/lib64 which is correct) and I get this again:
    djdoo@dhcppc0:~> dmesg | grep drm
    [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
    Xorg.0.log is the same and of course I still don't get DRI...

    A question, did anyone manage to get DRI from ati OSS driver for an RS690 chip and a 64bit OS??

    @Alex:
    I finally did it!!

    I just compiled the drm modules and added them in the kernel replacing the old ones at /lib/modules/my kernel/kernel/drivers/char/drm
    I read this at a guide at dri.project.
    Rebooted and I had DRI!

    I get Textured Video (very good quality) but with diagonial tearing like it was with fglrx and opengl video!! How can it be??

    Also Xorg.0.log is reporting DRI enabled but glxinfo sais Direct Rendering: No
    Why? Is this normal??

    BTW my new succeded Xorg.0.log:

    http://www.pastebin.org/22074

    3D is much slower than it was with fglrx, but EXA and Textured Video work well in general terms.

    We still haven't shaken all the bugs out of the textured video in IGP chips.

    Probably an issue with the 3D driver. you might have old fglrx remnants floating around or your 3D driver is installed in the wrong place.

    Try this:
    Code:
    LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
    and see what error you get.

    @Alex:
    It shows me the same output as glxinfo does.
    Doesn't mention any errors...

    EDIT: Ignore this one, obsolete! Look at the next post! Cause I think here the driver was using fglrx's libGL and libglut! That's why wasn't mentioning RS690 experimental!

    @Alex:
    I think you were right about fglrx's remnants...

    Searching my /usr/lib64 I found 2 files there libGL.so.1.5.070100 and libglut.so.3.8.0!
    Those 2 were not created by the mesa src I got from git and not linked to anything instead the mesa git provided libGL.so.1.2 which had only 2MB size whereas the 1.5 one had 16.4MB!! And libglut.so.3.7.1 which has 873KB size instead of 273KB of 3.8.0 one.

    Well after removed those 2 files glxinfo changed dramatically and now LIBGL=verbose glxinfo gives me this:
    djdoo@dhcppc0:~> LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 5.3.0 r300 (screen 0)

    Now it's a more logical output but it doesn't reports the mesa info and instead gives this:
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual
    Why??

    BTW Xorg.0.log is very good and reports DRI and rest stuff OK and enabled! Except AIGLX which is reverted to software... but this is known isn't it?

    glxgears isn't working and sais
    glxgears: Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
    But I think I am finally reaching the end now!!

    I'm interested to try this one. I have ati 2400 pcie card and i've used fglrx drivers but got tired w/ problems on kubuntu 7.10. I get blan/ck screen when i either logout or switchuser or shutdown. 2 users and it's awful always to push reset button (keyboard is frozen) when need to change user. Also ctrl+alt+bckspce gets blank screen. So is this problem appearing only in fglrx in k/x/ubuntu?
    Mesa driver works quite well... logout=ok, switchuser=colors gets messed up, shutdown=ok.
