Hello,

I'm using Vector Linux 6.0 on my IBM Thinkpad R51 (see:http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:R51), but I cannot start X with the Radeon driver. The VESA driver works without any problems, but I would prefer to use the Radeon driver.

I get the following warning in my Xorg.0.log in /var/log:

Code:
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module fgl.renamed.libdri
(II) UnloadModule: "fgl.renamed.libdri"
(EE) Failed to load module "fgl.renamed.libdri" (module does not exist, 0)

...and this error at the end of the log file:

Code:
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

I've attached copies of my Xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log and my lspci output.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That card is not supported by the fglrx driver.

You can try the open source ati driver.

Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf
at the Driver (video area) use
"radeon"

Hi Bigpaws,

I'm not trying to use the fglrx driver, but the radeon one you recommend. I found out that the ATI fglrx driver does not support the 7500 Radeon mobility, because it is based on the R100 chipset; the fglrx driver only supports the R200 chipset and newer. 

Here is what the xorg.conf that I attached reads for how I've configured it:

Code:
Identifier  "Card0"
Driver      "radeon"
VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName   "Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500]"
BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"

Please, take a look at the xorg.conf.old.txt that I attached for a closer inspection. I'm by no means an X-Windows expert, so it's entirely possible that I've done something I shouldn't have ... but I just don't know where else to go from here.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I looked at your config

Lines 127 and 157 need to match.

Rename so that they are the same and that
should fix your problem.

Is the radeon modules show up in your lsmod?

I am using Dell Latitude C640 which have a similar graphic card and at the first I cannot use the ati/radeon/fglrx driver. I have to use the vesa xorg.conf to run X. But then today I notice my lsmod did not load radeon as a modules. Then I try modprobe radeon and run vasm again and guess what; the radeon modules work. So I add /sbin/modprobe radeon in my /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and it work even after I restart the system.

The downside is direct rendering is disable. Is that normal for this GPU?

The radeon driver does 3D at 16bits only iirc.
Check your default depth is 16 instead 24 in your xorg.conf

The radeon driver does 3D at 16bits only iirc.

I use the xorg radeon driver on my 1.3 GHz Celeron desktop and it does 3D (direct rendering) at 24 bits, 1280x1024.

What did you do to make direct rendering work? Are you using VL6 too?

I'm using VL6 Standard Deluxe on this computer, Radeon 9200 card with 128 megs of RAM on the card, one gig on the computer. I also have a small VL6 Light partition on the computer for packaging and the same video driver.

I didn't do anything to make direct rendering work. The computer is not turned on right now, so I can't copy information so you can compare.
