3d acceleration problem


First hi to everyone, this is my first post.
I'm new to linux and I have a problem with 3d acceleration in Fedora Core 4 64bit.
My graphic card is ATI Radeon 9600XT and I have installed ATI linux driver and it works fine.
Problem starts when I try tu use Point2Play and cenega to start Call of Duty, it says that my drivers are not up to date. I tried to start C&C: Generals and it actualy worked but very slow and then I saw that it has no 3d acceleration, so I think that's why Call of Duty doesn't start either.
I used Point2Play system tests and in that test OpenGL passed but 3d accleration failed the test.

Can anyone help me, I'm working on this problem for the past 5 days and haven't come up with anything.

Could you post the output of this command?
Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
How did you verify that the ATI drivers are working fine?

dfilkovi, welcome to LQ then

on top of cs-cam very good suggestion,
here some stuffs you can look at to learn about your graphic system
command called xdpyinfo

a log you print on screen:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log (check the filename)

Look as well at /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Nobody wants to see the whole of it, but some good section might help
at some point.

I know this will be garblegiboo at first, but you will learn

What is the score from
glxgears

just as a curiosity

I solved the problem reading this post form borchen an I thank him.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d+acceleration

It was just so frustrating for me that I can't install the driver just double clicking on the rpm and than start conf utility.

Thanx to Borchen.

Then go and buy a stress ball or three, maybe a big teddy bear to punch. Using linux will mean that often things won't just work after a quick double-click. There is never anything really hard to do and documentation is generally at a walkthrough standard but this isn't Windows and setup files as most are used to don't exist except for things like Autopackage.
