    Unhappy RS485 (Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP), F9 no 3D no DRI with ati-6.8.192-rc2

    I have RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP] integrated chip in my laptop and it has lots of problems with the fglrx driver. In particular fglrx doesn't like the 2.6.25 kernel and the xorg in my F9. SO i decided to swith to the open source ati driver.

    My cards is (from lspci -vvv):
    Code:
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    	Kernel modules: radeonfb
    I searched through this forum and lots of people claim they've made it work with their ati cards. But I cannot. I used F9 and here what my xorg.conf looks like:
    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "Default Layout"
    	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

    EndSection

    EndSection

    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Videocard0"
    	Driver      "radeon"
            Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "Screen0"
    	Device     "Videocard0"
    	DefaultDepth     24
    	SubSection "Display"

    		Depth     24
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    
    Section "Extensions"
    	Option	    "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection
    I have the following packages installed:
    Code:
    mesa-libGL-7.1-0.35.fc9.i386
    mesa-libGLU-7.1-0.35.fc9.i386
    mesa-libOSMesa-7.1-0.35.fc9.i386

    glx-utils-7.1-0.35.fc9.i386
    with the fglrx I got about 1700 FPS. but with the ati-6.8.192 it is only about 250 FPS. with opensuse live it goes to about 550 FPS. the actual results are
    Code:
    1318 frames in 5.1 seconds = 260.044 FPS
    1221 frames in 5.0 seconds = 242.244 FPS
    1240 frames in 5.0 seconds = 245.745 FPS
    1106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 219.882 FPS
    1215 frames in 5.1 seconds = 239.327 FPS
    1135 frames in 5.0 seconds = 225.165 FPS
    1201 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.391 FPS
    1208 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.834 FPS
    1198 frames in 5.0 seconds = 238.908 FPS
    1221 frames in 5.1 seconds = 239.745 FPS
    1208 frames in 5.1 seconds = 238.587 FPS
    XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
          after 27303 requests (26108 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    Because I cannot attach files here I zipped them and uploaded them on /files/126029926/info-files.tar.bz2.html. this is hosted on rapidshare"#dot#"com. "Sorry but this is no spam". There you can find the info from xorg.0.log, glxinfo, glxgears, xorg.conf, lspci info and the installed packages.

    Any ideas how to make my it work with the foss ati driver?

    What does 'dmesg | grep drm' show? And 'lsmod'?

    Yes, I already saw your log file.

    You're definitely not using the latest DRM available. The radeon kernel module in git is at 1.29.0, and that's what I'm using on my Xpress 1150. I'm doubtful that 1.28.0 would be new enough.

    can you post your xorg.0.log file?
    the drm and the radeon modules date back to 2006 !!! I have 2.6.25.6 kernel. this means, they've not been updated for 2 years!?
    Anyway do you have any problems with your 1150? how many FPS do you get with the lastes driver? My ~ 200 FPS are so annoying - I cannot even surf the web!

    I'll try the git module and report back. Anyother ideas where the problem could be?

    I can't post it at the moment... Besides, there's no advantage to posting it.

    The date from the drm modules in the 'dmesg' do not reflect when the modules were created or last updated.

    I have no real problems with my 1150 with the open source drivers. Since you haven't specified what application you'd like my framerate from, I can only assume you mean glxgears. I refuse to mention my glxgears framerate because it is completely and totally irrelevant. glxgears framerate does not represent any real world performance.

    Update your DRM from git, and try again. If you continue to have problems, show us your new /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and your new 'dmesg'.

    The DRI is disabled by default on some RS4xx IGP chips since they used to hang on DRI init. This may be fixed now, but I don't have the hw to test. You'll need to enable it by adding:
    Option "DRI" "True"
    to the device section of your config.
