    Stepmania on Knoppix 5.01 DVD (CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG in kernel)

    Okay... Okay... Okay.... I'm forced to make an account.

    I figured out where to get the drivers I need to enable "Direct Rendering"....but..... everytime I try to install them(dripkg), the makefiles complain that CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG is not enabled in the kernel.

    How do I patch/upgrade my kernel to enable CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG???

    I tried this --> http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/lin...10.3/1505.html

    Even after changing all "linux-2.6" to "linux-2.6.17" that Knoppix 5.01 DVD comes with..... doing...

    cd /usr/src
    patch -p0 < MyCutAndPasteFromURLKernelPatch.txt

    I get a bunch of malformed errors. Now, I don't think that patch is correct and I don't wanna mess up my knoppix install(though, it's pretty standard... so I could just wipe it out and start over I guess). I've read a bunch of tutorials online about patching/upgrading kernels, but I'm thinking Knoppix's kernel is too customized for me to download a generic kernel and just install it. Also, I question if I even need to upgrade/patch the kernel... because make menuconfig --> search... shows me that there are CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG & CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG64 already present...somewhere, in some file...marked as "=n". How do I change them to "=y"?
    At the end of the day, I want glxinfo to tell me "Direct rendering: Yes". And I'm sure I'll get that once I get this dripkg makefile to complete successfully. I already suspect that my patching attempts have made a bunch of unfinished changes that'll end up forcing me to re-install knoppix from scratch before this is all over.

    BTW, This is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 notebook.
    The command "dmesg | grep agp" shows Intel 945GM Chipset.

    Thanks,

    UPDATE:

    I see Intel 945GM graphics driver for Linux here:
    http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...9&submit=Go%21

    I see DRI's home page listing Intel's i945GM compatibility as "supported" here:
    http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Inte...HardwareVendor

    ....but, still haven't figured out what to do with all this....

    SOLVED!!!

    1) Using the fresh install of Knoppix 5.01,
    2) edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use i810 driver
    3)install the following enabled Direct Rendering. (glxinfo | grep render)

    mesa-common-dev (= 6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1)
    libgl1-mesa-glx (= 6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1)
    libgl1-mesa-dri (= 6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1)
    libgl1-mesa-dev (6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1)

    EDIT#1: Turns out this brakes XMMS with BadMatch Invalid Parameter.... but whatever, there are other Media players for linux that work fine.
    EDIT#2 In terminal type "export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1" then type "xmms" and it'll start up. Same thing for Audacity.
    EDIT#3 add this to the bottom of /etc/profile and you won't have to type it everytime you need it.
