Voodoo3 in mandrake 9.1


hi guys,
need your help on this one.
for two day i am trying to get quakeworld to run on mandrake 9.1 i have read about 200 howto's and searched google for anything that crossed my mind.
i managed to get quake running with fuhquke-gl/glmqwcl BUT its fucking slow.by slow i mean like running windows xp on a 386.
i guess its driver related. tuxracer works properly so i guess it has nothing to do with hardwareacceleration.
i typed glxinfo and thats what i get :

it says direct rendering works.

i looked into the XF86Config ( is there a relevant difference between the one in usr/X11R6/bin and the one in etc/x11/ ?)

it says:
Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "3Dfx Interactive, Inc."
BoardName "Voodoo3 (generic)"
Option "power_saver"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Driver "svga"
Device "device1"
Monitor "monitor1"
DefaultColorDepth 16

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"

Hoax, I am going back a long way now, as I dont use Mandrake anymore, so the following may not be relevant. I used also to have a voodoo3.
With Mdk8.2, the kdm login used to interfere with the tdfx driver.
I got round it by using the the gdm login instead.

I used to ask questions here:
http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php

there's a few knowledgeable people there who may help you.
