When I built the version that's packaged with the kernel, it does say loading R500 microcode, but I haven't tested that with Dave's mesa and it may not be compatible right now.

    edit: i applied the new microcode patch and everything is still OK. this guy's problems is most likely not related to which version of microcode.

    Dave created his r500 branch before I merged the new microcode. It's easy enough to merge master into Dave's branch though. At this point, I doubt you'll see much difference however.

    Post Radeon driver on Mobility Radeon x1600(M56P)

    I installed the Radeon driver following this post here.

    My chip is not recognized, see glxinfo below.

    Code:
    brian@defiant:~$ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 5.3.0 r300 (screen 0)
    libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is 4, (OK)
    drmOpenByBusid: Searching for BusID pci:0000:01:00.0
    drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
    drmOpenDevice: open result is 4, (OK)
    drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns 4
    drmOpenByBusid: drmGetBusid reports pci:0000:01:00.0
    unknown chip id 0x71c5, can't guess.
    libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs.
    libGL error: InitDriver failed
    libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
    display: :0  screen: 0
    direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.2
    Is my chip not supported yet, or did I mess something up?

    Are you sure you're running the newly compiled driver and not the one shipped with your distro? Sounds like you're running an old version of the driver. A quick search on Google indicates that a few other people have had the same issue, and it turned out to be that the wrong driver was being loaded.
