Description Shyam Mani 2006-04-07 17:25:12 UTC
I was helping spyderous@gentoo.org test some stuff when we ran into this issue.

This was tested on an ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY card. Basically
built x11-drm from CVS and couldn't get direct rendering working as it should.
This same setup works fine with the in-kernel DRM modules.

To provide a bit more detail, nothing existed in /dev/dri (no card*). But it
worked fine with the DRM in the kernel.

That's normal, the X server creates and removes the nodes on demand.

Please attach (as opposed to paste) full X config and log files as well as (at
least the relevant) kernel output.
