Description splix20 2011-03-12 09:13:31 UTC
Description of problem:

    'radeon' driver gets kernel panic at boot.



How reproducible:

With AGP Radeon cards on Intel i845 motherboard



Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get Intel i845 motherboard
2. Get ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP (512MB memory, 64bit bus)
3. Try to boot OpenSuse 11.3
4. kernel panic on boot stage




Additional info:
using nomodeset option allows to boot , but driver changes from radeon to
radeonhd. If 'radeonhd' not present in the distribution  (for example , Fedora 14), then I see totally black screen with movable mouse cursor. VESA driver works nice.




System configuration:

1. Motherboard: Intel 845D(has on board AC'97 sound, but this sound is disabled in BIOS currently)
2. CPU:Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz
3. Main memory: 1,5 GB DDR 266MHz
4. Video card: PowerColor ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP (512 MB, 64 bit)
5. Sound card: CMI8738
6. Hard drive1: SATAII Western Digital 500GB 32MB cache(connected to IDE slot on motherboard through SATAII-IDE converter. This converter is separate module inserted into IDE slot on motherboard)
7. Hard drive2: IDE Seagate 40 GB
8. DVD-RW: IDE LG DVD-RW device(without converter)
9. Network card: D-Link DFE-520TX 10&100Mbps Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter

Does booting with radeon.agpmode=-1 on the kernel command line in grub help?

Looks like a problem with agp on your system then.  Make sure the appropriate agp modules are loaded prior to loading the radeon driver.

How can I do this?

Compile them into your kernel or manually load the appropriate agp modules before loading radeon.
Comment 6 Jerome Glisse 2011-06-27 14:14:31 UTC
Do you still have this issue if you properly load appropriate agp driver ?
Comment 7 splix20 2011-06-28 08:41:26 UTC
I just don't know how to load AGP module properly, so I can't say is it solvable or not...
