I`m having quite a stupid problem.
I tried to get OpenGL working, and installed a new version of Mesa
(5.01 i think it is) on my Slackware 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20).
But it still was not working, until I realized that I just need to uncomment
"glx" and "dri" in my XF86Config.
So far so good, now opengl is working, but when I run glxgears I only get:
1195 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.000 FPS
( I have an IBM Thinkpad T30, which is 1,8 GHZ processor with 256 RAM)
This is a little low value I think for my system... really low
Well, I was searching on the mesa3d.org homepage, and found this in the FAQ:
1.4 How do I upgrade my DRI installation to use a new Mesa release?
You don't! A copy of the Mesa source code lives inside the XFree86/DRI source tree and gets compiled into the individual DRI driver modules. If you try to install Mesa over an XFree86/DRI installation, you'll lose hardware rendering (because stand-alone Mesa's libGL.so is different than the XFree86 libGL.so).
Does this mean that I now lost all my hardware rendering ability because I installed the mesa package again?
Help, I`m screwed!
