Slackware 10 Video Works. But Load "dri" freezes
I have installed Slackware 10 on my Laptop. I was able to get the 1280x800 screen working. When I add the line: Load "dri" The laptop locks up when I start X and has to be turned off, ctrl-alt-del does not work, nor ctrl-alt-f2 nor ctrl-alt-backspace.
I have installed Slackware 10 off the CD. Then Xorg version 6.8.1 and Slackware 10.1. None will work when DRI is enabled. If I comment out the Load "dri" line X works fine, but then I get direct renderng disable, of course.
I have SuSE successfully installed and running on the same laptop and direct rendering works fine.
I even copied the SuSE XF86Config file to my xorg.conf. I know the shame, but desperte times call for desperate measures. And it did not work.
I have search the Internet and have not been able to find much about getting dri to work when the video is already working. It seems that it is all or none. None has lots of solutions, but partial working does not.
The only thing I have been able to figure out is that the Slackware drivers are newer than the SuSE drivers. I looked around the sub-directories, but could not find anything that leads me to what is actually wrong.
Here is the file listings (Slackware 1st and SuSE 2nd):
32318 2004-10-18 15:46 /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a
30314 2004-10-04 10:55 /mnt/suse/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a
38478 2004-10-18 15:46 /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libdrm.a
38010 2004-10-04 10:55 /mnt/suse/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libdrm.a
I am not sure which way to proceed. I don't want to start copying old files over newer files. And more imporatantly I don't want to chase down something that is not going to fix my problem
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
