Actually I am following the method described here:


using my  current Slackware with gcc 4.1.2 and kernel
Unfortunately I cannot properly compile drm (dated 25.02.2007) snapshot from 
Mr. Yavner's page becouse of an error :

/drm/linux-core/drm_vm.c:841: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
/drm/linux-core/drm_vm.c:900: error: unknown field 'fault' specified in 

so I couldn't get savage modules.

I CAN compile the latest drm snapshot from git without errors: 

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/mesa/drm

but resulting savage modules are known to be broken. And there is no rendering 
of course. Probably drm snapshot from february 2007 works but I cannot 
compile it as of today. 

Any ideas folks ?
How can I get earlier drm git versions from freedesktop.org ? 

PS. My glxgears-fps in non-rendered mode is actually 190-200 thanks to Mr. 
Yavner's xorg.conf :-) - not far from fully rendered mode.
