It may depend on your motherboard, but there shouldn't usually be much difference in the performance. I have an nForce2, and get exactly the same score in glxgears with and without kernel agpgart. The kernel AGP is usually a bit more reliable on some types of board though.

I'm a n00b 2 linux and esp. gentoo, this thread really helped me to get my radeon working.

Got my Radeon 9800 Pro running at 3500 - 4000 FPS in glxgears :) The trick for me was to use the external agpgart module instead of ATI's internal one.

I triple checked. The only thing checked for my kernel is the AGP as a module and nothing else. I think my mobo and 3d card might be a little too exotic, I'm not sure what, but I think I'll start up again when newer drivers come out.

You need /dev/agpgart support AND AGP support for your motherboard, which is where the list of options comes in. Which type of board do you have? If it's an nForce, pick nVidia support, if VIA, VIA support etc etc. You also need to load a second module once you've done this (2.6 is different from 2.4, where you just need to load agpgart). If you select nVidia support, you need to load agpgart + nvidia-agp before fglrx. If you select VIA support, it's agpgart + via-agp. And so on.

Can anyone tell me if this would work for a ATI U1 graphics card? I have HP ze4145 Laptop running the 2.6.1 kernel.

Hi,

I got an old Dell Lattitude CPiX 450 Notebook with a Rage Mobility. It's reported as MACH64.
How to enable DRI with 2.6 kernels ???

Thanks in advance

I had about the same problems as nosferat.
I was finaly able to get it working by turning off agp 8x in my bios.
I'm running at agp 4x now.
Maybe this will work for you too.

Don't know, if i am bothering you know, but here's my working way:

- Kernel 2.6.1 (devel-source) WITHOUT drm but agp
- Fist making again "opengl-update xfree"
- Then emerge ati-drivers
- "opengl-update ati"
- "modules-update force"
- Editting XF86Config-4 for NOT using internal-AGP

Did his job everytime, only error that broke compilation was forgetting to "opengl-update xfree" before merging.

Before I start breaking my system, I better ask some questions:

This is my output of lspci | grep AGP

Code:
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C598/694x [Apollo MVP3/Pro133x AGP]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X (rev 5c)


As you can see, I have a ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X. My biggest question is whether I can simply follow the guide to configure my graphics card or not. Will the "ati-drivers" work for me? I was reading through some of the Gentoo manuals and it seemed like that my card would need the "xfree-drm" drivers and not "ati-drivers". I am unsure because in the guide I can see that there is a Direct Rendering Manager for "ATI Rage 128", so I am tempted to assume that it will work. The guide, however, recommends that you don't use that DRM, but instead use the one provided by the "ati-drivers" package.

Another question: Why do I have two items listed when I do the "lspci | grep AGP"? One of them is my graphics card, I know that, but what is the other one? Is that the PCI bridge that the mainboard uses to communicate with the graphics card?

I know I have a lot of questions, but I am afraid of doing something completely wrong! :? 8O

Thank you in advance for your help! :D

PostPosted: Fri Jan 30, 2004 8:17 am    Post subject: ati tv Reply with quote

I'm currently using the gatos version of radeon.o in order to have tv input on a 7500 AIW. With 2.6.1 the km module 0.5 does not compile so no video capture or pvr. I understand that nvidia just released amd 64-bit drivers as well as 2.6.x drivers for x86. This should put some pressure on ati which is good. There is a growing market for video hardware as linux installations slowly eat into the desktop market. If anyone at ati is reading the tea leaves for the coming years they should realize this and rather than concede this market to nvidia make signifcant effort to develop linux drivers.

PostPosted: Sat Feb 07, 2004 4:23 pm    Post subject: radeon 9000 pro, gentoo-dev-sources kernel 2.6.1 Reply with quote

I have looked over this thread and many others to no avail. First, I have to appologise in advance for the long post, but I have tried to capture every step accurately. Second, here is my setup:
Dual PIII 800MHz, Tyan Tiger 100 mobo (VIA chipset), 624 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 9000 Pro, Yamaha PCI sound card
gentoo-dev-sources 2.6.1
Here is what I have done so far:
Code:
opengl-update xfree
emerge -C ati-drivers

Then I recompiled the kernel with the following options:
Code:
<M> Enhanced Real Time Clock Support
<M> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)
<M>   VIA chipset support
[ ] Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)

Yes, /usr/src/linux is linked to the right place.
Code:
mount /boot
make clean
make && make modules_install
make install
(made sure grub points to the right kernel, vmlinuz)
reboot ...
emerge ati-drivers > log

here are the error messages that popped up (not in the log)
Code:

Next I added fglrx to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
Code:
rtc
agpgart
via_agp
fglrx

reboot
Code:
opengl-update ati
modules-update
fglrxconfig

edited XFree86Config-4 for my PCI location 1:0:0, dga is turned off
Starting X (startx) gives a black Screen Of Death forcing me to cycle the power on the computer. If I try using the internal AGP I get the same thing. If I turn "no_dri" to "yes", I can finally get to X without any acceleration.
What am I doing wrong?

[EDIT] Tried the 3.7.0 drivers, but still no love.

Got my Radeon 9800 Pro running at 3500 - 4000 FPS in glxgears :) The trick for me was to use the external agpgart module instead of ATI's internal one.

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe (nForce2)
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
Radeon 9800 Pro

are you serious? i get some 400 FPS with a ASUS A7V8X, AMD 9800, Radeon 9800. i think you may have confused the total frames in 5 seconds and frames per second.

Code:
$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Radeon 9800 Athlon (3DNow!)
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.2.8)


Code:
$ fgl_glxgears
1884 frames in 5.0 seconds = 376.800 FPS
2106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 421.200 FPS
2258 frames in 5.0 seconds = 451.600 FPS
1928 frames in 5.0 seconds = 385.600 FPS
1733 frames in 5.0 seconds = 346.600 FPS
1342 frames in 5.0 seconds = 268.400 FPS
1752 frames in 5.0 seconds = 350.400 FPS
2158 frames in 5.0 seconds = 431.600 FPS
1781 frames in 5.0 seconds = 356.200 FPS
2310 frames in 5.0 seconds = 462.000 FPS
2435 frames in 5.0 seconds = 487.000 FPS
2264 frames in 5.0 seconds = 452.800 FPS
2068 frames in 5.0 seconds = 413.600 FPS
2584 frames in 5.0 seconds = 516.800 FPS
2223 frames in 5.0 seconds = 444.600 FPS
2090 frames in 5.0 seconds = 418.000 FPS
2455 frames in 5.0 seconds = 491.000 FPS
2090 frames in 5.0 seconds = 418.000 FPS
2351 frames in 5.0 seconds = 470.200 FPS
2400 frames in 5.0 seconds = 480.000 FPS

nevertheless i do have a problem with dvd playback within xine: it happens that my output lags - but as i just recognised, it might not be a graphic issue because every now and then my CPU is under 100% load for about one second. don't know where the heck that comes from, but it might be a kernel issue (2.6.2), 'cause i didn't have that before.

PostPosted: Fri Feb 13, 2004 2:33 pm    Post subject: fglrx module Reply with quote

I can "emerge -k ati-drivers" successfully, but when I "modprobe fglrx", I get a module not found error. Does anybody know how to fix this? I am using gentoo 1.4 with the vanilla 2.6.2 kernel. The odd thing is, I can run fglrxconfig with no problems, and I can even load X with my XF86Config-4 file using the "fglrx" driver. However, when I "glxinfo | grep rendering", I get "direct rendering: No" as output.

I just upgraded my kernel from 2.4.23 to 2.6.2. When I was using the 2.4 kernel, I had no problems and was getting somewhere around 2000 fps. (I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro)

I have exactly the same problem.
FWIW I used to be a beta tester for ATI, reported this and got zero feedback. Submitted reports via proper channels and all.

Hardware ASUS 9T533 mobo, 9800 pro.

I've been thinking that the problem is related to the 2.6.2 vanilla kernel, but I need that for other things. Can't use a 2.4 kernel :/

When I point /usr/src/linux to my 2.6 kernel, I cannot emerge xfree-drm ( I get a whole pile of make errors, functions not defined etc.), but when I repoint it to my 2.4 kernel, I get no problems. Anybody know why this happens? I am still using the 1.4 portage packages for the most part... I've just added new kernels and a few main applicaitons.

Now I am getting the same problem as nosferat used to have. I compiled a new kernel (gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.3-rc2) and then emerged the latest xfree (4.3.0-r5) which also grabbed the latest gcc-3.3.2-r5. Then:
Code:
opengl-update xfree
emerge /usr/portage/media-video/ati-drivers/ati-drivers-3.7.0.ebuild
opengl-update ati

upon rebooting, fglrx module fails to load (it is placed at the end of modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and I have agpgart and via-agp load before it).
dmesg gives the following error (similar to nosferat's):
Code:
agpgart: Detected VIA Apollo Pro 133 chipset
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 564M
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xe0000000
fglrx: version magic '2.6.3-rc2-gentoo SMP preempt PENTIUMIII gcc-3.3' should be '2.6.3-rc2-gentoo SMP preempt PENTIUMIII gcc-3.2'

That last line is repeated a few times. Do I need to recompile my kernel with gcc-3.3.2?
Any ideas on this magic?

Well, I fixed this problem. Once I recompiled the kernel with gcc-3.33, the fglrx module loaded fine.

However, I still get the black SOD when trying to run X. If I use 'Option "no_dri" "yes" then I can get to X, but I get no acceleration. With "no_dri" "no", my XFree86.0.log file looks like everything is okay....

Ya know what's more fun than that modules.autoload junk is something like:

/etc/modules.d/ati:
Code:
pre-install <your-agpgart-chipset-module> modprobe -k agpgart
pre-install <your-DRM-module> modprobe -k <your-agpgart-chipset-module>

Then run modules-update.

This should force agpgart to autoload before your chipset's agpgart loads, and force your chipset's agpgart to autoload before your DRM loads. Since the DRM autoloads when XFree86 is started, it should make for a fully automated loading system instead of loading the modules for no purpose at startup time.

anyone happen to know how to get the ATI opengl driver to "stick" every time i restart the X server? i'm using kernel 2.6.3-love-r1, ati-drivers 3.2.8, and i have the agpgart and my appropriate agp driver (intel_agp) loaded as modules in this order: agpgart, intel_agp, fglrx. it runs with the ati opengl driver when it first boots, but when i log out or do a ctrl+alt+backspace, it reverts back to the mesagl driver. anyone know how to solve this?

I was having problems with my fglrx module not loading either until i went in and emerged the ati-drivers-3.7.0 now i think these numbers will speak for themselfs.....

22908 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4581.600 FPS
23707 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4741.400 FPS
23639 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4727.800 FPS
23720 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4744.000 FPS
16441 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3288.200 FPS
36501 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7300.200 FPS
36406 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7281.200 FPS
22956 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4591.200 FPS
23356 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4671.200 FPS

Thanks all for the great info in this topic. Now i can completely move away from windoze =)

i don't recommend using 3.7.0 yet... it does good in glxgears, but other opengl apps/games (such as anything in wine, ut2004, etc.) runs a lot slower than the 3.2.8 drivers.

For all the guys getting a black screen of death after a startx take a look at:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40891
It seems to be a problem initalizing the AGP Card beyond the AGP Bridge. I am using a little skript:
Code:
startx &;
sleep 5;
killall -9 X;
startx;

(Actually I use two scripts to start xdm ...)
