Description Liam Dennehy 2007-06-19 17:22:31 UTC
DRM module is referenced in dmesg output, but fails to initiate the graphics card. lspci and dmesg output to follow... This is running under Xen, but I understand this shouldn't be a problem?

PCI ID for the graphics card (1002:5975) is in the dri database, so this should work..?

The FC7 kernel doesn't have support for the rs480 in it, I'm not sure if the FC7 update has it... it only went into the upstream kernel quite recently...

You also need a new mesa driver for 3d (this isn't complete yet...)

Thanks, so is this in the mainstream kernel from kernel.org or do I need to patch it from another source? And will the existing mesa be crippled without the new release or not work at all?

support is now rawhide Fedora 8, and upstream Xorg, Mesa and kernel trees.
