How to install glx and GLcore modules?


I failed to get my nVidia card 3D to work:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...a&pagenumber=2

So, I am trying to get my ATI Radeon card 3D to work. I installed the drivers according to this simple howto:
http://xoomer.virgilio.it/flavio.sta...installer.html

Every thing went fine during installation. When I restarted X, it did work but the 3D did not. From the XFree86.0.log I found the following:

(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module GLcore
(II) UnloadModule: "GLcore"
(EE) Failed to load module "GLcore" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module glx
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)

I checked my system for /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a and /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a but could not find them. Does any body know how to get modules glx and GLcore installed?

If i were you i'd try using the dri drivers, since your model is supported, but you could also try the propietary drivers to get the "official" drivers. I've tried xoomer's drivers, but have never gotten them to work, but the propietary drivers work fine on mine, i'd use dri but my model isn't supported.
If you want to use the xoomer's i can't help you, but i can guide you around the propietary drivers. Good luck.

Thanks for all. I installed knoppix 3.7 (kenel 2.4.27) and got my ATI Radeon 9200SE to work with xoomer's drivers finally.

(II) fglrx(0): Acceleration enabled
(II) fglrx(0): X context handle = 0x00000001
(II) fglrx(0): [DRI] installation complete
(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled
(II) Loading extension FGLRXEXTENSION
(II) Loading extension ATITVOUT
(==) RandR enabled

However, it is very slow. I am getting 3875 frames in 5.0 seconds = 775.000 FPS only. Tuxracer is moving very slow.

How can I improve it?
