Subject: [gentoo-user] Can't find driver for VGA in kernel source tree
Date: Sat, 15 Oct 2011 02:14:32
1 Hello, everyone ! I'm trying to build a kernel
2 manully and there is a problem.
3 I use lspci command and it shows my
4 VGA card information:
6 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller:
7 ATI Technologies Inc M92 LP
9 Then I type
10 $ cd /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:01:00.0
11 $ cat vendor
12 $ cat device
14 Now I get the vendor ID 0x1002
15 and the device ID 0x9552 for my VGA card
17 Then I type
18 $ grep -i 0x1002 include/linux/pci_ids.h
19 It shows #define PCI_VENDOR_ID_ATI 0x1002
21 $grep -i 0x9552 include/linux/pci_ids.h
22 It shows nothing
23 $grep -Rl PCI_VENDOR_ID_ATI
24 It prints a lot message, but I should notice
25 files in directory drivers/media video and gpu.
26 Here are the files in them:
27 /drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-card.c
28 /drivers/video/aty/radeon_base.c
29 /drivers/video/aty/atyfb_base.c
30 /drivers/video/aty/aty128fb.c
31 /drivers/drm/radeon/radeon_agp.c
33 I have searched through these files, but I didn't
34 find both 0x1002 and 0x9552 in one file which
35 means these files are not drivers I need.
36 If it means that there is no driver for my VGA in
37 kernel source tree ? But my laptop is bought two
38 years ago, hardware is not fashion.
