I am trying to install X on an old PC with ATI All-in-wonder with Rage 128 PRO chip by following current Gentoo how-tos without success. As suggested, X should start without any configuration. When I startx, it loads modesetting and tries to load ati driver instead of r128:

This is much better, as it recognizes the video card and monitor, but it still asks for additional configuration. I never created such before and tried some variants, by reading man page for xorg.conf, but without success.

The X11 config is not sufficient.

Have a look at X11 doc here: http://www.x.org/wiki/UserDocumentation/
and

pdraganov,

As you say, I would have expected the automatic set up to just work.
Code:
[ 35865.289] (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.


Do you have a framebuffer driver configured in the kernel?
Some Xorg drivers don't like that.

Maybe automatic setup was never ported to the r128 driver but I didn't think it was driver dependent.
It was all looking good too.

At face value, you need a Screen section in xorg.conf
That sounds odd as automatic everything else seemed to work.

Keruskerfuerst, I read a lot of documentation, but most of it is for radeons and my video card is since a pre-radeon millenium :)

NeddySeagoon, I followed Gentoo how-tos and I have in the kernel:
Code:
<*> Support for frame buffer devices  --->
[*] Enable Video Mode Handling Helpers
[*] Enable Tile Blitting Support
...
< > ATI Radeon display support
< > ATI Rage128 display support
< > ATI Mach64 display support
and all other *** Frame buffer hardware drivers *** disabled


I have also:
Code:
Console display driver support  --->
    <*> Framebuffer Console support
    [ ]   Map the console to the primary display device
    [ ]   Framebuffer Console Rotation
<*> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)  --->
    <*>   ATI chipset support
Direct Rendering Manager  --->
    <*> Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)  --->
        <*>   ATI Rage 128


I tried:
Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI_AIW"
        Driver          "r128"
        BusID           "PCI:1:0:0"
        Screen          0
        Option          "Monitor-VGA-0" "Samsung"
        Option          "Monitor-S-Video" "TV"
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Samsung"
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "TV"
EndSection
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Screen0"
        Device          "ATI_AIW"
        Monitor         "Samsung"
        Monitor         "TV"
EndSection

pdraganov,

A few things.

Lets see if it will work with the vesa driver. This is just a test.
Rename your xorg.conf so Xorg can't find it.
Code:
emerge -1 xf86-video-vesa

Now try startx

Next, use wgetpaste to put your kernel .config file onto a pastebin.

That error message suggets that you may have used $EDITOR on the .config file.
That's a very bad thing. The recovery is to throw it away and start again.
The .config file that is.

It works with vesa driver, but after few minutes (probably when video goes to stand-by) it freezes with blinking caps lock and scroll lock. It happened twice.
.config file is in https://bpaste.net/show/a1719933629e

pdraganov,

The kernel .config looks OK.

The flashing caps lock and scroll lock indicate a kernel panic.
Something happened that the kernel could not recover from.

OK, so how can I use r128 driver instead of vesa?

pdraganov,

Post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log first please.
Xorg should have tried r128 first. Lets see what the log says.

It still tries to load ati instead of r128: https://bpaste.net/show/3b1ea61b9c64
I cannot understand how Xorg matches autoconfigured drivers and how to change this.

pdraganov,

Some time ago, there was only the xf86-video-ati driver for all ATI cards. Recently, the r128 and mach64 drivers were split out.
Neither are well maintained.

Your VIDEO_CARDS= needs to list vesa and r128 but not ati.
vesa is a get-you-going.

If the automatics persist in the list in the log
Code:
[    16.682] (==) Matched ati as autoconfigured driver 0
[    16.682] (==) Matched ati as autoconfigured driver 1
[    16.682] (==) Matched modesetting as autoconfigured driver 2
[    16.682] (==) Matched fbdev as autoconfigured driver 3
[    16.682] (==) Matched vesa as autoconfigured driver 4
there is a bug.

The workaround is to have a xorg.conf just with a device section.
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "ATI Rage"
    Driver     "r128"
EndSection
That will force the use of the r128 driver.

This driver depends on CONFIG_DRM_R128 in the kernel. If the r128 driver fails, post the Xorg.0.log.

My VIDEO_CARDS="r128" only. Should I add "vesa" and recompile whole X, or emerging xf86-video-vesa installed what was needed? Anyway, vesa makes kernel panic.
I included Xorg.0.log in my initial post, but I tried it again with the same result: https://bpaste.net/show/35ba33772fc3
I think that r128 driver is not matched with /dev/dri/card0 video card and that is why X unloads r128 module.
I tried with:
Code:
Section "OutputClass"
        Identifier      "r128"
        Driver          "r128"
EndSection
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI_AIW"
        Driver          "r128"
        BusID           "PCI:1:0:0"
        Screen          0
        Option          "Monitor-VGA-0" "Samsung"
#       Option          "Monitor-S-Video" "TV"
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Samsung"
EndSection
#Section "Monitor"
#        Identifier      "TV"
#EndSection
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Screen0"
        Device          "ATI_AIW"
        Monitor         "Samsung"
#       Monitor         "TV"
        SubSection      "Display"
                Depth   24
        EndSubSection
EndSection
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Default Layout"
        Screen          "Screen0"
EndSection

without success too: https://bpaste.net/show/449dacfde882

pdraganov,

Your log says
Code:
[   245.279] (==) Automatically adding devices
[   245.279] (==) Automatically enabling devices
[   245.279] (==) Automatically adding GPU devices
so it should work with no xorg.conf.
As it keeps loading the ati driver, the xorg.conf - just the one Section "Device" I posted above, should fix that.
Please test.

If it still fails, pastebin the Xorg.0.log and your kernel .config file.

The log says
Code:
[   245.878] (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
but I don't see anything wrong with your Section "Screen"

That the vesa driver causes a kernel panic makes me think of a hardware issue, as its OK for a few minutes.
That driver works on any video card made since about 1998. Its old and slow and reliable.

The
Code:
emerge xf86-video-vesa
was all that's needed to install the vesa driver. To keep it installed, it needs to be added to VIDEO_CARDS.

R128 is a pre-KMS driver, so you may have to do this the old-fashioned way: by manually defining 「SubSection "Display"」 entries inside the 「Section "Screen"」 one. If you run `X -configure` it should generate a default config file with those in it, which you can copy and paste from.

Keep in mind the card only has 16MB of VRAM, so it might get unhappy with 24bpp @ maximum res; you may need to settle for 「Depth 16」.

Ant P.

It was trying to run at 1024x768 in 24 bit colour. At 4 bytes per pixel, that's less that 4MB per pixel buffer, so it fits into 16MB with double buffering.

NeddySeagoon, as I wrote, I tested with just one Section "Device" and Xorg.0.log is in https://bpaste.net/show/35ba33772fc3. I didn't change the kernel, so its .config is at https://bpaste.net/show/a1719933629e. The PC worked OK with ubuntu before I decided to reinstall it with the latest Gentoo, so most probably there is no hardware problem with it.
Ant P., I generated a config file with X -configure and tried it with X -config /root/xorg.conf.new without success - the generated config and log are in https://bpaste.net/show/529b6502a68d

pdraganov,

In this section of the kernel, you need support for your motherboard chipset. It does not relate to your Graphics card.
You discover your motherboard chipset from
Code:
lspci


Code:
# Graphics support
#
CONFIG_AGP=y
# CONFIG_AGP_ALI is not set
CONFIG_AGP_ATI=y
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD64 is not set
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=y
# CONFIG_AGP_NVIDIA is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_SWORKS is not set
CONFIG_AGP_VIA=y
# CONFIG_AGP_EFFICEON is not set
CONFIG_INTEL_GTT=y
CONFIG_VGA_ARB=y
CONFIG_VGA_ARB_MAX_GPUS=16
CONFIG_VGA_SWITCHEROO=y


Here, you choose support for your graphics card

Code:
#
# Direct Rendering Manager
#
CONFIG_DRM=y
# CONFIG_DRM_TDFX is not set
CONFIG_DRM_R128=y
That is correct.

What motherboard chipset do you have?
If you need to rebuild your kernel, be sure to make changes with
Code:
make menuconfig
and not a text editor.

Your xorg.conf from X -configure looks good too.

Ahh okay, I only mentioned it because I had a few cards from the early 00s that were a bit iffy with memory management. May have been Matrox ones though...

Should I disable "ATI chipset support" and "Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support" (and probably "Laptop Hybrid Graphics - GPU switching support")?

pdraganov,

The kernel options you don't need are just bloat. You can disable them if you wish.

What does uname -v show?
When did you last build your kernel?

pdraganov,

Code:
#1 Sun Jan 10 21:51:34 EET 2016
is the date and time your running kernel was compiled.
If you have made a new kernel since that date/time, you are not running it.

I am trying to check that the kernel .config file you have posted actually belongs to the running kernel.

My .config file is modified on 10th of January 21:35, just before I compiled the kernel. I didn't make any changes to it since I first asked my question.
