I have a ATi Radeon 9600 pro, which, even after installing the Ati linux drivers, am unable to use direct openGL hardware rendering. So, I decided to try the DRI route through the land of drivers. I downloaded and unarchived, but when I went to compile, it gave me an error and said that it couldn't continue without the kernel modules (duh). So, any ideas on how to get it further in the install? Or, is there some way that the ati drivers can be changed so that direct hardware rendering works?
PS-This is all in Red Hat 9.
PSS- I ran "glxgears", and it gave me 250 fps, but tux racer still is at 1-1.5 fps.
