DRI not working on Savage


Hi everybody!

I'm trying to get DRI to run on my laptop for some weeks now, but yet unsuccessful.
My laptop is an Acer Aspire 1312XC, the graphics chip is a "S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8 KM266/KL266]" (according to lspci) and I'm running Debian testing with Kernel 2.6.8.1.
To enable DRI, I followed the instructions here: $URLOFTHISFORUM/questions/showthread.php?postid=1033836#post1033837 , which worked for me after some troubles. Now I get the following lines when greping for 'DRI' in /var/log/XFree86.0.log:
Code:
XFree86 Version 4.3.99.12 (DRI trunk)
(II) Loading extension XFree86-DRI
(**) SAVAGE(0): DRI is enabled
(II) SAVAGE(0): [DRI] installation complete
(II) SAVAGE(0): [junkers]pSAVAGEDRIServer:
(II) SAVAGE(0): [junkers]pSAVAGEDRI:
So far, I'd think that DRI is up and running. However, glxinfo tells:
Code:
"direct rendering: No"
[snip]
client glx vendor string: SGI
[snip]
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: (URL removed)
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
Has anybody an idea what's going on here? I'll attach glxinfo's
complete Output, if you need more information, just tell me.

thx, Trurl

i have the same problem

hi,
i have the same problem with my acer aspire 1350, i changed kernel from version 2.6.7 to 2.6.9.1 and i can't have direct rendering (and 3d accel). i think it is because of the libGL, in the afternoon i'll try again with unichrome library, so please if you find a solution post it !!!
thank you
