Description PL Hayes 2006-06-18 09:53:00 UTC
The radeon man page says: Option "AGPMode" "integer" Set AGP data transfer rate. (used only when DRI is enabled) 1 -- x1 (default) 2 -- x2 4 -- x4 8 -- x8 others -- invalid Setting the rate to "4" works as expected but when I set it to "8" in my xorg.conf for my radeon 9250, I get these messages in the log agpgart: Found an AGP 3.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0 agpgart: X tried to set rate=x12. Setting to AGP3 x8 mode. agpgart: Putting AGP V3 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 8x mode agpgart: Putting AGP V3 device at 0000:02:00.0 into 8x mode [drm] Loading R200 Microcode This isn't a new bug - it's not something that's suddenly appeared in xorg-7.x or kernel 2.6.x - I've just not gotten around to reporting it in the last year or so since it doesn't seem to be harmful and I don't really know which component is at fault.

I saw this too, with the r300 driver, but I just ignored it.
