Ati Powercolor (Radeon) X800 XT PCI/E


Hey!

I can get DRI to work, but i have Glx, OpenGl running without any problems..
I think it could be the drivers or something like.

When im running Warcraft 3 Tft, it's so much lagg so i can't play, and it's not cuz my PC.
Had Windows XP before and i could play it without lagg.

My XF86Config
Code:
Section "Files"
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
    FontPath "unix/:-1"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    #DontZap # disable <Crtl><Alt><BS> (server abort)
    AllowMouseOpenFail # allows the server to start up even if the mouse does not work
    #DontZoom # disable <Crtl><Alt><KP_+>/<KP_-> (resolution switching)
EndSection

Section "Module"
    Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension

EndSection
Xorg.0.log(just a part of it):
Code:
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.so
(II) Module dri: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
	compiled for 6.8.99.900, module version = 1.0.0
	ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.2
As you can see i can load it without any problems, so it must be the drivers.


If anyone how to input right settings for my graphic card i would be greatfull(in XF86Config). (Have a PCI/Express card)..

Edit: Btw i have Linux Mandriva 2006
(Sorry for my bad english)

I'm assuming you did not install the ATI drivers from ATI.com?

Read my DRI link in my sig. It has an extensive section on ATI. I think you'll find that the propietary drivers from ATI will help you.

Seems like you might need to configure you're XF86config file, try changing the "fbdev" in the Device Driver section to "fglrx" and see how that goes, assuming the ati driver is insalled properly that should give you some functionality at least.
Failing that, try using the aticonfig tool that came with the ATI drivers.
