Hello,

I did a system update, which included Xorg.
But at restart, the MGA drivers won't load with the following message :

I searched a bit, and found this link (but I duno if it is totally revelent).

My kernel's config is the following :

I don't have a Matrox, but perhaps the new driver is now i.e. KMS-only.
If it were that way, then it may likely be the same case as ati/intel - CONFIG_FB_VESA and CONFIG_FB_MATROX* must in such case be off.

Though more info about your xorg.conf would be useful.

Hum, I think there is an HUGE problem with the new version of XOrg, because I updated as well my t40 (lspci said "VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV200 [Mobility Radeon 7500]") and I got a 256 colors screen :(

This time, no problem to load the driver, but Xorg.log contains :
Code:

[    36.912] (II) LoadModule: "modesetting"
[    36.999] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module modesetting
[    36.999] (II) UnloadModule: "modesetting"
[    36.999] (II) Unloading modesetting
[    36.999] (EE) Failed to load module "modesetting" (module does not exist, 0)


... I need to find a way to compile it as well.


On the MGA machine, I don't have configuration at all, but
Code:
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard-all"
        Driver "evdev"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
EndSection

The most recent xf86-video-ati definitely is KMS-only.

As for Matrox - enough already, pastebin whole log.
Post 'emerge -1pv libdrm mesa' too.

Thanks a lot, my T40 is back with a decent video :)

Matrox is not using KMS ...

But Matrox' kernel framebuffer has to be disabled.
VESA doesn't matter.

Thanks again.

To find out which driver is currently hogging your graphics card, run "lspci -k"

In fact, the problem is not fully solved as I lot the graphical acceleration :cry:

I can see following error in Xorg.log that I didn't had before :
Code:
[    32.947] (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/mga_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/mga_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
[    32.947] (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
[    34.529] (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized swrast
[    34.529] (II) GLX: Initialized DRISWRAST GL provider for screen 0


I duno if it impact 2D gfx as well, but clearly, I can't show video anymore.

How can I rebuild this .so ?

Chances are you can't - looking at the ebuilds, mga was still present in mesa 7.11.2, but not in 8.0.4 and IIRC, that code was dropped upstream.

Perhaps you should give KMS and xf86-video-modesetting driver a try ?
It's not - IIRC - hardware accelerated, but my personal experience on a quite outdated card (though one that did have a mesa hardware module) were that dropping the _FB_ module did lighten the load on the system quite a bit.

Arg, it's painfull : the advantage on Linux is we can run it on old hardware ...

_FB_ are already disabled but I can't see any KMS for g400 :cry:

But, I can re-install mesa 7.11.2 and keep xorg-1.13 ? Or should I revert back to the previous version of Xorg ?

So I'm fearing destroying my system doing that ...
Which is the safest way ?

This is one area where binary distros have an advanatge. Arch packages mesa 9.0, but they also package DRI1 drivers compiled from mesa 7.11 source and they work together fine like that. That's because the libgl interface is stable, so a 7.11 driver can talk to a libgl from 9.0.

Though I suppose something similar could be done in Gentoo: An ebuild that installs mesa 9.0, but no drivers. And then another ebuild that builds mesa 7.11, but only installs specified drivers from that.

No need to mess with X, that's a separate thing from mesa.

HI Gusar,

So it means I can cheat the system ?
I mean :
  • compile mesa 7.11 (the problem for me will be do know how to tell emerge to ignore blocking)
  • Archive drivers
  • compile and install latest mesa 9.0
  • install drivers as mesa is looking for them
  • pray that mesa API will not change

Hum, how can I ensure that llvmpipe driver is loaded on my system ?

My second remark is about the sentence "To be clear, this removes only the DRI1 3D support for older chipsets. Native 2D drivers will still be provided for the affected hardware" : I guess it is concerning Gentoo as well but in this case, why windows manipulation feel soooo slow after this update ?

I mean, I don't have Compiz or another other 3D effect on my desktop ... but clearly, moving a plain window is as slow as on my venerable Sun's Ultra60 which wasn't the case before. Is blitting part of 3D functions ?

Everyone who thinks llvmpipe is a valid replacement for a proper 3D driver (even a DRI1 one) is either clueless or delusional. For llvmpipe to work even sorta not completely slow as molasses, you need a multi-core CPU with modern instruction sets. A kind of CPU you will *not* find on machines with these old graphic cards that only have DRI1 drivers.

I didn't say it's a correct solution, only that not all distros solve it by picking the drivers from old mesa.
Then again, bitrot is the word - I kinda doubt getting such hardware is easy and the userbase is slowly dieing out.
I wonder how much work would it be to pull the code out of old mesa and - using the new build system as a template - pack those drivers into a separate package. Also, how long would it take for such package to get broken by upstream changes - libGL API might be stable, but dri1 is not quite the same thing; remember that in 1.13 xserver XAA got dropped.

But my question remains : is it needed for a desktop without 3D effect ?

VoidMage wrote:

One of the main reason to choose Linux for joe average is it can bring back to life old / deprecated hardware that is not anymore supported by commercial OSes.
The big example is the i915 disaster : it's all but a good advertisement for Linux. "If I replace the nasty w2000 installed on my machine by Linux, am I ensured it will still work in 2 months".
It's a pity that upstream doesn't take it in account. Anyway, another story :)

Now, how can I revert back ?

PS: I duno if it's possible and how, it should be useful if portage can warn before such destructive upgrade. "caution, you're upgrading Xorg but I detected from your VIDEO_CARDS you will face problem with mga card ... :P

Nope.

It could be the easiest way is to compile mesa 7.11 manually, not with portage. You're only interested in one file anyway (mga_dri.so), which you then copy into /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/. Check the Arch PKGBUILD to see which configure flags to use.

This has nothing to do with X, but with mesa. And there was a "warning" of sorts, though admittedly it was subtle - mesa no longer has VIDEO_CARDS="mga", something that showed up in "emerge -pu" when there was an update from 7.11 to 8

Yeah, XAA is gone. But the driver should fall back to ShadowFB, which is pretty much the same (XAA hasn't been accelerating anything for years). You could also try activating EXA:
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Matrox Card"
  Driver "mga"
  Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
EndSection

If that won't work well, try explicitly enabling ShadowFB:
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Matrox Card"
  Driver "mga"
  Option "ShadowFB" "true"
EndSection

So,

  • EXA creates an imeditate kernel panic :(
  • ShadowFB improved a bit windows movements ... but performances are too poor to allow video playing.


So the only solution I see it to revert back to x11-base/xorg-server-1.12.4 (or probably 1.11.4-r1) and mask all subsequent versions.

Bye

Video playing where? Mplayer, and other standalone players, should be able to use the video overlay, just configure them to use Xv. Install xvinfo, show us it's output.

If you're talking about flash... well, it's flash. Though even there, I don't have a problem on my SiS card which also requires the use of ShadowFB. For fullscreen scaling, flash can use opengl, so did you compile mga_dri.so yet? Hmm, though I'm not sure opengl works with ShadowFB. Damn, I wish I had a Matrox card, so I could play with this stuff...
