drm-kernel is the GATOS version of DRM kernel module for Radeon. For now it is needed to make video capture work correctly - but it is planned for merging into regular DRI tree.

This module is no longer needed as both X.Org from CVS (or release 7.0) and recent DRM (included in Linux kernel) setup card correctly.


  • Obtain drm-kernel from CVS
  • Type make -f Makefile.linux to compile it.
  • You can now load the module with the command insmod ./radeon.o - you need to be root to do this.

TODO list for CVS code
