First time using Gentoo in a few years :D Quite a lot has changed, and it doesn't help that I've switched architectures.

I have a 400MHz Sawtooth G4 (AGP, 100MHz FSB, Rage 128 Pro video card) and I can't get DRI to work right. This new modular xorg is actually pretty tricky. I have everything set up properly in the kernel, as per the FAQ, but when starting xorg it spits this out:
Code:

X Window System Version 7.1.1
Release Date: 12 May 2006
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.1.1
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 ppc
Current Operating System: Linux Siegfried 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 #15 Wed Sep 13 23:51:17 PDT 2006 ppc
Build Date: 13 September 2006
        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
        (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Wed Sep 13 23:53:40 2006
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(WW) ****INVALID IO ALLOCATION**** b: 0xf0000400 e: 0xf00004ff correcting
(EE) end of block range 0xefffffff < begin 0xf0000000
(EE) R128(0): No DFP detected
(EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/r128_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/r128_dri.so: cannot open shared object file:
No such file or directory)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering


After that it starts fine, but no direct rendering ;_;

So... how the heck do I get this r128_dri.so file? There's other .so files in the same directory but none of them pertain to any ATi video cards.

Did you build mesa with the r128 use flag set? This is where that file will come from.

That one's probably it. I compiled xorg the first time without knowing about the VIDEO_CARDS variable. I'll start the compile going and let you know how it turns up :D

Just for the record: I'm currently setting up an old machine with an ATI Rage 128 Pro in it and had to spent some time on gettting DRI to work.

It appears, that the current stable 7.9.* ebuilds of mesa don't handle the r128 driver the right way. There is no /usr/lib/dri/r128_dri.so installed at all.

The ebuild for mesa 7.10.1 does configure mesa the right way, if VIDEO_CARDS contains "r128".

Maybe this comment saves someone else half a day at some point in time ... :roll:

Seems to have been a mistake. I have no idea why. I also don't have any idea why once it was noticed, mach64, mga, and r128 were only added back to the 7.10 ebuilds.
