Very low (0-2) fps in 3D games, using radeon 9800 pro


Hi. First I had problems with OpenGL & GLX, I couldn't play 3D games.
After getting past that problem I faced a new one: FPS 0-2 while running fluxbox, 0-3 without any WM, running games such as *cough* FreedroidRPG *cough* or Egoboo
I'm using Ati Radeon 9800 Pro, fglrx driver.
Help would be appreciated.

My guess would be that even though you're saying you're using those drivers, you really aren't.

After installing the drivers, did you make the change to your xorg.conf or XFwhatever file to actually "use" the drivers?

I replaced the previous driver-entries in xorg.conf generated by xorgconfig.

Sorry, don't know what to tell you, although it's weird that it says it found an nvidia chipset when it's an ATI you're using. I'm guessing that the nvidia chipset is an onboard video? ATI is in the AGP slot?

Mobo: MSI K7N2 Delta2 LSR - nForce chipset
Ati in the AGP-slot.
