Description Marcin Kurek 2006-06-20 15:27:01 UTC
It seems
cause xorg-server to fail on my setup (Pegasos II 1GHz G4) 

When I try to start the Xorg server I see only a black screen. Revert this one
makes xorg to work normaly.

OK, it seems this one is fixed by

But not quite I guess. DRM stops working after that. Looking in to the log's I
can see ->

(II) LoadModule: "dri"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libdri.so
(II) Module dri: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 7.0.0, module version = 1.0.0
        ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
(II) Loading sub module "drm"
(II) LoadModule: "drm"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module drm
(II) UnloadModule: "drm"
(II) UnloadModule: "dri"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libdri.so
(EE) Failed to load module "dri" (a required submodule could not be loaded, 0)

I see the libdrm is missing from /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/ but
compilation went fine.
Comment 2 Marcin Kurek 2006-06-22 01:56:57 UTC
Oups ... I looked at wrong directory. The libdrm.so is in
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/linux normaly, but server is unable to load it correctly.
I  compared binary of libdrm with older version (ithout recent loader changes)
and it's identical then I guess the fault is caused by loader changes.

Seems to be fixed in resent git
