Hi!<br>
<br>
2010/12/30 dE . &lt;<a href="mailto:de.techno@...">de.techno@...</a>&gt;:<br>
<div class="im">&gt; The difference is too large.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; One more set of success. Better performance with the classic mesa BUT with<br>
&gt; KMS enabled using the Debian kernel and it&#39;s config.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Still not reproducible with my custom config.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Is there a way to just see which things the radeon KMS driver expects... and<br>
&gt; certain messages if they are not found?<br>
<br>
</div>Have you checked dmesg, and &quot;/var/log/Xorg.0.log&quot;?<br>

&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; Hi. you might know me from the forums, but unfortunately I&#39;ve appeared<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; to have stumbled over a difficult problem -<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; <a href="http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6487475.html" target="_blank">http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6487475.html</a><br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; I&#39;m having a bad time configuring the kernel. I&#39;ve enabled KMS (like<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; what&#39;s with Debian), used the latest xserver, mesa from the overlays<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; and<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; eselected mesa to galium (r300 and sw). On this setup, glxgears is<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; blank... the&#39;s just a blank windows with no reading of the fps drawn.<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; On the other hand on Debian I get a sustainable FPS, if I copy over the<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; Debian kernel (and modules) to my Gentoo install, I get good FPS, so<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; there must been something wrong with my kernel configuration. The<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; Debian<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; guys have enabled KMS.<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;&gt; RS690m chipset which hosts x1270.<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt; You can copy the &quot;.config&quot; from the debian kernel into the<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt; gentoo-kernel, run &quot;make oldconfig&quot; and see if that takes you in the<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt; right direction.<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt; Good luck,<br>
&gt;&gt; &gt; Daniel<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; Better to copy &quot;.config&quot; and to use diff with your gentoo .config<br>
&gt;&gt;<br>
