One more confirmation ... thank you so much ...!

by the way, hopefully savage dri will be in gentoo xorg for the coming release.

That seemed to do the trick Algor... Thanks so much.... Please let us know if you hear anything about this current problem and when it'll be fixed! Once I find that they have this problem fixed, then I'll make a new How To for those of us using X.Org.... FYI, I added to your code, for those who don't want to go back to the DRI Wiki :)

Ok, the problem is the new savage.ko module.
Download the old version of drm:
Code:

$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@dri.freedesktop.org:/cvs/dri login
$ CVS password:
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@dri.freedesktop.org:/cvs/dri co -D2004-08-05 drm

Compile and install the new-old savage.ko module and the dri will work:

Code:

cd drm/linux
make DRM_MODULES="savage"
cp *.ko /lib/modules/$KERNEL/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
reboot

Thanks again!


i tried out that with kernel 2.6.8.1mm4, and it says:
Code:

zobiak kpoman # modprobe savage
FATAL: Error inserting savage (/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-mm4/kernel/drivers/char/drm/savage.ko): Invalid module format
zobiak kpoman #

then i checked out the latest cvs, and it seems to work only for 2.4 kernels !
do someone has any clue concerning this ? help :)

ok well my invalid module format error was due to kernel being compiled with gcc 3.3.x and drm with gcc 3.4.x so now i am able to load savage module safely :p

but still not getting the dri working :( am using xorg 6.8.0r1

hope someone can confirm that it will one day work :)

DRI CVS is updated

http://dri.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/Building

It's Xorg 6.8.1.99 ie the real Xorg CVS ....

It is working for me (T23 26475nu) :D

glxgears ~ 438 FPS ... no performance gain though.

Nothing really related to GLX / DRI

but I had to change keyboard driver "keyboard" to kbd, after make install.

That's it. Here are my savage/T23 related settings. (running at 16bit 1400x1050, there isn't enough memory for 24bit)

Code:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "Generic Laptop Display Panel 1400x1050"
        HorizSync 31.5-90
        VertRefresh 59-75
        DisplaySize 370 277
        Option "DPMS" "yes"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier "SuperSavage"
        Driver "savage"
        Option "AGPMode" "4"
        Option "ForceInit" "yes"
EndSection


PS. I am using kernel 2.6.8.1

Seems to work for me, too, but I'm not sure:
Code:

dmesg | grep -i savage
[drm] Initialized savage 1.0.0 20011023 on minor 0: S3 Inc. SuperSavage IX/C SDR


So the savage.ko module is loaded, but I also get this:
Code:

glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: No


glxgears gives me just ~90fps. Are you sure you didn't read the "...frames in 5 seconds"?

These are my working X logs ... make sure you are loading the right driver from CVS (6.8.1.99) and there is sufficient memory. Make sure X can load the module automatically ... ie X requested for DRI resources and your kernel loaded it. And check the dates of your libGL.so* in your lib paths /usr/lib and /usr/X11R6/lib too

Code:

2251 frames in 5.0 seconds = 450.200 FPS


Code:

(II) LoadModule: "savage"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o

Ah, nice:
Code:
1148 frames in 5.0 seconds = 229.498 FPS


I had an old libGL.so.1.2 in /usr/lib, so I copied the newer one from /usr/X11R6/lib over.

What I don't understand: We seem to have the same model (2647-4NG is mine), but my max. resolution is 1024x768. Maybe we also have a slightly different savage or why do I get half of your fps?
Code:

Your log says you're running at agp 0x speed... Maybe that's all it can do?

My 830M also just does 1x:
Code:

Hey,
I've had this working in the past, but for some reason I don't seem to be able to get it working again. I've successfully got to the following command, followed by the error message:
Code:
martin@kumi kernel $ make -f Makefile.linux
Makefile.linux:142: *** Cannot find a kernel config file.  Stop.

I checked around the forums and Google but couldn't find anything about kernel config files in relation to the Savage driver.

Anyone know how what I need to do?

Running 2.6.8-r7 kernel...

Cheers,
Martin

Couple quick response...

Mine is a P3 1.2GHz w/SVGA+ (1400x1050) LCD and 16bpp runs faster than 24bpp in general.
Code:

0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. SuperSavage IX/C SDR (rev 05)



Option "AGPMode" "4" is the option to adjust the AGP speed, 4 = 4x.

Take a look at "Tweak your performance"
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml

from dmesg
Code:

agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 4x mode


for DRM building. Where did you find your Makefile.linux?!
checkout the drm stuffs according to the DRI site instructions.
cd drm/linux-2.6
make savage.o

will produce the module.
Take a look at the Makefile for other options.
make sure there is a .config in the kernel source.

Well, I solved my previous problem by symlinking /lib/modules/linux-2.6.8-gentoo-7/build to /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-gentoo-7/, but I've ran into another problem.

Specifically, I type "make -f Makefile.linux" and I get the following errors:
Code:

Anyone know where I'm going wrong here? I'm running the 2.6.8-r7 kernel.

Looks like you were compiling a 3Dlabs Permedia driver ....

just do a "make savage.o" in the DRM CVS that you checked out separately from DRI project.... NOT the drm from the xorg tree, there is a dedicated linux-2.6 dir.

read http://dri.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/Building#head-59338b545aa94fe7570b689a9f9f850f53f732ca
and
http://dri.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/Building#head-59338b545aa94fe7570b689a9f9f850f53f732ca

May be you should check out a complete new copy of everything ... I can confirm that the directory and files that you mentioned in the previous post does not exist anymore ... DRI xc CVS has moved. if you just tried to run an cvs update instead of checking out a new copy, you are not getting the right stuffs, please take a look at the updated building howto on dri.sf.net.

Thanks,
I went through that, but I'm still running into a problem.
Everything seemed to go fine, but when I startx and run glxinfo, I still get a glaring "no" for "Direct rendering:".

The only clue I'm getting (at least, as far as I can see) is on starting X, I get a line saying:

Code:
(WW) SAVAGE(0): Failed to set up write-combining range (0xd0000000,0x2000000


But the rest of the log does not indicate any problem, and indeed even appears to indicate that DRI has been enabled successfully (I don't want to post the whole thing as it's rather lengthy).

Anyone have any idea where I'm going wrong with this?

Like b0th ... make sure your glxinfo and stuffs are using the right libGL.so.
by ldd glxinfo etc

check the dates of those files. make sure they are the new ones

Nope... that doesn't work...:

cp: `/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so' and `/usr/lib/libGL.so' are the same file

Put mine to 4x, but still just get 230fps... But it's ok, at least it works :) I don't have any apps using opengl anyways... Just qt and some kde-packets have it in USE...

I followed the instructions at http://linux-sxs.org/guis/DRIS3.html today and it's not working out. I have a prosavage ddr chipset, and my kernel is 2.6.8-r7. Also, I have Xfree86 4.3.0-r7

When I run "make -f Makefile.linux" from the above instructions, this is what happens:

Code:
root@baal kernel # make -f Makefile.linux
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.8-gentoo-r7/build  SUBDIRS=`pwd` DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules

Can anybody please help me out? I'm sort of desperate to get opengl working with this video card ... school assignment, etc. Should I switch to x.org? what is the quickest way to get opengl/glx working from where I am right now? If you need me to post anything, such as XF86Config files, etc, please let me know. incidentally, this is what the glxinfo command gives now:

Code:

I had the same problem. Try following the link that Salivian posted above. You'll probably make more progress.

But still, in the end, don't expect it to work. It still won't work for me and no one seems to know why. I'm considering doing a complete re-install of Gentoo from scratch, 'cause this is really starting to annoy me.

By the way, is the Savage driver eventually going to make it into Portage so all we need to do is "emerge xorg" and Savage DRI will work without all this hassle? If so, anyone know how long? If it's a short time, I might put off re-installing until then.

EDIT: I've switched to the 2.4 kernel and the "make -f Makefile" works without error. :) I can only hope that 3D will be working now when I restart X.

EDIT 2: IT WORKS!!!!! :D Try the 2.4 kernel if all else fails and you don't require 2.6. I had no problems at all getting it working on it.

Yes! Finally got it working. Used salivian's link and followed the instructions exactly with kernel 2.6.8r7 and (after dealing with a problem with the Mesa compilation), everything works perfectly now.

Here's what was going on with Mesa in section 1.1.6:

instead of:
DRI_DIRS = dri_client <dri drivers>

I had to specificy the full path to dri_client and the full path to (in my case) the savage dir. Then it compiled. Everything else worked as the howto explained.

Great. I'm glad to see it's working. I am having the same trouble building mesa though... could you be a little more thourogh on what you appended to that file? I am not sure how the trees are built, so I would be digging for hours - just easier to ask ;-) Thanks. Also, does anyone have any idea if the driver developer will ever add acceleration for the xrender extension so we can have some nice high speed eye candy?

T.J.
