how to solve missing "XFree86-DRI" on display ":0.0"


hi,

I need help with installing a program called GLITCH to do an OpenGL assignment.
I have Mandrake 9.0. I've downloaded the openGL libraries from the Mesa website.
When I want to execute GLITCH it says:

GL library /usr/x11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
XLib : extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0"

I don't understand what this means and don't know how to solve it.
How can I install XFree86-DRI on display 0.0?

Can someone help me!

Thanks.

hi,

GLITCH is just a program we use to help us learn OpenGL.

I don't know how to check what graphics card I have.

From what you gave me, I guess my graphics card is:

VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS630 GUI Accelerator+3D (rev 31)

But, I'm still confused about missing XFree

That just means you don't have direct rendering on display 0,0 the display you are on.
post your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 the graphics part.
also see if this helps;

you will need the "sis" driver

hi,
I added that section to the XF86Config-4, and somehow my GUI disappeared and I had to run Mandrake on the console.

Anyway, I asked friends about the problem and they said I have to download the OpenGL driver for my graphics card.
My graphics card is SiS 630. However, I can't find any OpenGL driver for Sis 630 for OS Mandrake 9.1. All I found is for Windows.

Do anyone know where I can download Sis 630 OpenGL driver for Mandrake 9.1 ? Could you please direct me.

Thanks.

I hate to be the one to tell you but your card may not support direct rendering in linux,
I use a cheap nvidia card I got at wal-mart because they support linux.

Hi there,
I am kind of having a similar problem... mine's "GLX" instead of "XFree86-DRI"
Using Asus Radeon 9200SE 128MB, I had the fglrx driver working with an older Radeon but this time I don't know what's wrong...
Also, I didn't compile DRI into the kernel... My XF86Config-4 is similar to the one above, I have dri and glx.
Any suggestions?

Cheers,
~WiLL~

Do you know how to recover the GUI interface?
Somehow, my GUI interface (X server cannot be found)
and now I'm running Linux on a console only.

If not, do you know how to copy files saved in hard disk onto cd-rom
using the console.?

Thank you.

remove the line you added in the XFREE86 file will get your GUI back.

You need to go to http://dri.sourceforge.net and get the dri driver for the sis300 chipset which includes these chipsets
SiS 300, SiS 305, SiS 540, SiS 630/S/ST/E/ET and SiS 730/S

There is lots of documentation there you need to read. You should make a pot of coffee and plan on spending some time there.
