gothats: Hey guys, I'm having trouble getting the drm and radeon kernel modules to load
gothats: dmesg | grep drm says '[ 0.233985] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810'
gothats: so when I do modprobe drm, dmesg then says '[ 317.084122] drm: module is already loaded'
gothats: but modprobe radeon gives unknown symbol errors
gothats: and lsmod doesn't show drm
gothats: and rmmod drm says 'Module drm does not exist in /proc/modules'
El_Angelo: lsmod is just a cat /proc/modules...
gothats: yeah, I just examined that, and (obivously) no drm
gothats: I get this from insmod:
gothats: insmod: error inserting 'drm.ko': -1 Invalid parameters
gothats: that's when dmesg tells me it's already loaded
El_Angelo: and your sure it's actually a modle?
El_Angelo: it's not statically compiled?
gothats: find /lib/modules/220.127.116.11/extra
El_Angelo: i have 18.104.22.168 and drm and radeon are working just fine here
El_Angelo: and i'm actually doubting if you'll be getting help here...
El_Angelo: this is radeonhd after all ;)
El_Angelo: i think you might be better off with #ati
El_Angelo: not sure though
gothats: is confused
gothats: I followed the instructions on http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd%3ADRI
gothats: which gives you a radeon.ko
MostAwesomeDude: You forgot to depmod?
gothats: did that too...
gothats: if I rebuild a newer version of libdrm
gothats: do I need to rebuild mesa?
gothats: and all the way up the chain to the x server?
gothats: would getting the kernel modules to load be dependent on the versions of mesa or X that I have?
Nightwulf|work: hi all
gothats: so... drm was built statically in my kernel :-P
gothats: It was a default option
