Bug Description

I upgraded my ThinkPad X32 to Ubuntu 10.04 beta last weekend. I noticed that the 4x AGP video adapter (ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY) is stuck at 1x mode.

$ dmesg | grep -i agp
[ 0.098646] ACPI: PCI Interrupt Routing Table [\_SB_.PCI0.AGP_._PRT]
[ 16.687261] Linux agpgart interface v0.103

[ 17.273609] radeon 0000:01:00.0: putting AGP V2 device into 1x mode

and setting the AGPMode option in the Device section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf no longer works:

$ grep -i agp /var/log/Xorg.0.log
...
(--) RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY (AGP)" (ChipID = 0x4c59)
(II) RADEON(0): AGP card detected
(WW) RADEON(0): Option "AGPMode" is not used

WORKAROUND: Add:
options radeon agpmode=4

to:
/etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf

update initramfs:
sudo update-initramfs -u && sudo reboot now

Same here on an IBM X31 with the same video adapter.

Just wanted to let you know that you can enable AGPmode 4 by adding
options radeon agpmode=4
to /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf
After that update initramfs:
sudo update-initramfs -u
Than reboot. Thats it :-)

It works here. Thanks.

After agpmode=4 is passed to the kernel driver radeon, dmesg shows:

Hi Wenzhuo,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 544988

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

The 10.10 RC has still this problem. At least with the Live-CD.
Can't comment on Mainline-Kernel as my X31 runs Debian now.

Wenzhuo Zhang, thank you for reporting this bug and helping make Ubuntu better. This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue.
