mach64 not found antiX 12
 
I am using my old laptop (10yrs or so and counting).
It is an Compaq Armada E500.
I installed antiX 12 on it.
It is fine, but openGL doesn't work. Probably because mach64 doesn't load.

Here is the output of lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 03)

This is fine, but recently I have been using ssh and X11 forwarding (which is how I am writing this), and a lot of my programs use openGL. And , it is really getting on my nerves!

Any help?

The DRM module for mach64 GPUs never made it into the mainline kernel. You could try building it from source:

http://trya.alwaysdata.net/linux/mach64-20130130.tar.gz

It looks like someone has been updating it periodically to support newer kernels.

Mind you, back in 2011, mach64 support was dropped from Mesa (along with support for any number of older GPUs):

You could try downloading and building an older version of Mesa... Not sure if it's really worth your while, though.

Cool, just what I needed, but how do I use this?
I'm not quite sure what to do with this.
Do I just extract it build it?
Do I copy to somewhere in the kernel source?
