Hello. I recently installed Gentoo Linux 2005.0 (kernel 2.6.12-r9) on my eMachiens T2596. My computer has the Intel 845GV chipset. Under distributions such as SuSE or Fedora or Mandrake, I was able to get DRI working, so I could play 3D games without software rendering. Unfortunately, this isn't working with Gentoo
I tried installing x11-drm, and tried installing the i915 snapshot from freedesktop.org. Any ideas??
