[..] ATI Technologies Inc Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x (rev 64)
I have unsuccessfully attempted to enable direct rendering for this card
on a number of occasions over the last 3-4 years.
I decided to give it another try last weekend and saw the following in
| [drm] failed to load kernel module "mach64"
| (EE) [drm] drmOpen failed.
| (EE) MACH64(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit Failed
Indeed, I do not have this module on debian 'lenny'.
I found a couple of well-documented posts relative to this issue, which
indicate that the source was recently removed from the mesa/drm tree at
anongit.freedesktop.org and is now available in the kernel tree under
Since I did no see anything with a file name such as mach64.c in this
directory, I was wondering if the source was available anywhere at this
point in time, and if not, if there are any plans to reinstate it.
