DRI problem

Hello,

I have a problem with getting DRI to work.

I just got a new computer with a integrated onboard Graphics chip (S3 UniChrome), and currently I'm using the OpenChrome driver (the default one in Xorg does not work).

After installing the driver, the Xorg.0.log file shows that the DRI is enabled:

(II) VIA(0): direct rendering enabled

However, in glxinfo it shows that the DRI is not working:

whistler@www:~$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No

...and 3D games also runs very slowly.

Not sure about how to solve this problem.

My xorg.conf file: http://yapb.51.net/xorg.conf
and the Xorg.0.log file: http://yapb.51.net/Xorg.0.log

Thanks in advance.

How did you install DRI,

How did you install DRI, with a prebuilt package or from source?

The way I usually did it was what was described here.

You download the latest common and savage packages from here and then first extract the common tarball and after that the savage tarball in the same directory where the common was extracted (overwriting any files if necessary). After that you exit X, cd to that directory and start the ./install.sh script.

I also have a Savage chip, but it's not UniChrome. However I think the same driver should work for both.

However, in Xorg 7 the available prepackaged savage driver works out of the box. I imagine you're still using old Xorg which still requires compiling the driver yourself, but if you could, trying Xorg 7 may be a good option.

I hope this helps a bit. Let me know if any of the above works for you and if you have any other questions. Smiling

Good luck

never having used DRI, I cannot be of much help here...

Oh I feel stupid now..

Oh I feel stupid now.. didn't look to the Xorg.0.log file closely..

Well, maybe in that case compiling the driver as described above would work.

Not sure what else to add..
