I'll try to give some feedback on Ati Rage 128 graphic card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 PF/PRO AGP
- One regression:
I have noticed when using kernels from 2.6.16 to 2.6.20 with
6.5 to mesa 6.5.1 , with this kernel setup:
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=y , CONFIG_DRM=y, CONFIG_DRM_R128=y , I used to get about
460 fps in glxgears.
With xorg-x11-7.2 and mesa-6.5.2 with git-sources-2.6.21-rc3 kernel I get
about 320fps. Can someone else confirm?
- Suspend to RAM and resume when DRI is enabled:
I have read at http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/ATIRage128 it is not
implemented, yet. Is anyone working on this? My home desktop machine resume
fine after suspend to ram only if DRI is disabled in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
using s2ram utility with "s2ram -f -a 1 -s" combination. Should I file a bug
report for this at bugzilla.kernel.org and link it to
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7216 meta bug?
If I build r128 as kernel module or use "DRM Kernel Modules for X11" Gentoo
package (x11-drm) I got freezes - that means after I start glxgears it
freezes, I can still hear the music that is playing in the background but
keyboard and mouse are dead. After hard reboot I see some messages in log
and I think this is the same as in
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5562 report and #1 comment.
If I include it (r128) into the kernel, DRI works. Can confirm for
This affects Fedora Linux Core 6 and Ubuntu 6.10 and also their most recent
test versions ( FC7test2 and Feisty Herd 5) either during LiveCD boot or
after installation (in which vesa driver was used).
- Desktop effects with this card
Is anyone working on adding AIGLX support for this card. It can't support
desktop effects at the moment as stated here:
