I can not for the life of my get my graphic card working properally. It is installed and has been detected by linux. I really want to be able to use Wine and related software to play games. However I can not get "direct rendering" enabled. Perhaps it is because the OS automatically installed drivers and even if I install the correct linux rpm's for the card it doesn't configure properally.
I have spent hours reading help forums trying to find a solution to my problem. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate any assistance.
The problem is I just recently purchased the ATI Radeon X800 Pro, which at the time was the fastest graphic card available. Even more recently I have decided to switch over to Linux and rid myself of Windows.
I have installed Fedora Core 3 on both my laptop and my PC (2.4Ghz, 1GBRAM).
glxinfo | grep direct
I get back
direct rendering: No
OpenGL render string: Mesa GLX Indirect
glxinfo | grep OpenGL
I get back
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: wwwmesa3dorg
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)
If that helps at all... When I go to the Display Settings it says my Video Card is "ATI Radeon X800PRO"
I am concerned because my laptop gets an average of 732FPS and my PC with the highend card only gets 320FPS when I do "glxgears"
I am sorry, I know you all must get these kind of posts all the time, but if you could help me out in anyway I would greatly greatly appreciate it.
