curious, though your machine is PCI-Express ... I will check another couple of AGP machines later today and report what I find.

Cheers

todays radeonhd update fixes problem

looks like it was a bug ... a new driver came thru today and now the hwrdware acceleration works fine.

thanks for your pateince.

cheers

how do you fix that? i still have:

(II) RADEONHD(0): [drm] register handle = 0x22063000
(II) RADEONHD(0): [dri] Visual configs initialized
(II) RADEONHD(0): [DRI] installation complete
(EE) RADEONHD(0): [drm] Could not create vertex/indirect buffers list
(II) RADEONHD(0): [drm] removed 1 reserved context for kernel
(II) RADEONHD(0): [drm] unmapping 8192 bytes of SAREA 0xf9344000 at 0xaff33000
(II) RADEONHD(0): [drm] Closed DRM master.

It's almost certainly the X.Org/DRI RadeonHD driver(s). It's about as stable as jello. Maybe try the one in updates-testing? Or: is that the one you've installed??

i think the problem is deeper than that ... kernel changes, dbus changes etc seem to affect it as well. I had it working with both radeon and radeonhd drivers. A new kernel killed that. Now there are dbus changes, new xorg-server etc ... god knows where the prob is.

All I can say is that with either the radeon or radeonhd drivers, in xaa or exa mode, dont work anymore. Xorg.0.log shows apparently normal initialisation ... no errors. glxinfo shows DRI is enabled. Curiously though, the opengl renderer selected is the software rasteriser, instead of Mesa DRI .. so .. is that any help?

That "Software Rasterizer" is like a generic "fake" 3D driver that may give nominal 3D/DRI performance, as opposed to a 2D-only situation, but it's nowhere near as good as a real 3D driver. Don't be fooled: the real 3D driver is not working here, else you'd see it in the DRI renderer string. X11 is falling back onto the software rasterizer because something else doesn't work.

yes i appreciate that .. an older kernel still lets 3D and hardware acceleration work properly .. nomodeset on the new kernel has no effect.

somewhere between the kernel, xorg, and dbus the problem lies methinks ... in my humbly unknowing view ... they seem to be the things that break it. The fact that it happens with either the radeon or radeonhd, which differ wildly in their handling of the hardware, should help point somewhere methinks.

Erm... well, you may be right. Unfortunately, that only removes prime suspect #1 from the list, leaving #s 2, 3, and 4 in close running. Isn't this fun? Gotta wonder what will break next....

OTOH, when that RadeonHD thing is stabilized, it should be a very good thing for ATI owners.

Well I truly suspect the kernel ... they are mucking around with the video hardware interfaces, and simply using an older kernel works for me, even with all the other updates.

As for radeonhd ... well, radeon is faster than radeonhd according to glxgears at the moment. and radeonhd uses a completely different approach to controlling the hardware, which, in fact, is opposite to what AMD suggest, according to my reading. As to which will be better, its hard to say. But I will stick with radeon at the moment.

Its just a pity it all doesnt fail more gracefully. Currently if I switch to the new kernel I get a blank white screen. And goodness knows how one disables compiz from the command line LOL.

i tried last kernel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686 and xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd-1.2.4-1.1.20081212git.fc10

no 3d.

do u have Option "DRI" in your devices section?

maybe try the radeon driver too.
