ATI Radeon 32mb PCI & acceleration
don't know anything about this subject and have a few questions to ask. If some one can give me some advise it would be very much appreciated.
I have just installed a Radeon 32mb graphics card, PCI format, I have no AGP, on my old pc. It appears to work fine but am a bit puzzled as to how or if hardware acceleration is enabled or supported with this card. Am I right in thinking that the hardware acceleration is 'supplied' by the agpgart module. If this is so will this AGP module work with my PCI card or do I need something else. Dmesg gives these errors...
agpgart: no supported devices found
drm: initialised Radeon 1.7.0 20020828 on minor 0
drm: radeon_unlock *ERROR* Process 964 using kernel context 0
Also I read a lot about people going off to ATI to download drivers, is this necessary under XFree 4.3.0?
What command, or how do I check the status of hardware acceleration?
Glxgears gives output of 18,600FPS, 13,500FPS and 13,300FPS. Is this about right for this configuration?
I am running Mandrake 9.1, XFree86 4.3.0, have an AMD K6-2 running at 500mhz and 128mb RAM.
Thanks in advance, BashTin.
