How do I enable 3D hardware acceleration in Mdk 9.1?


I have been trying to get flightgear to work, but it is sooo slow. So I started a thread to learn how to find out whether DRI is activated or not, mine was not. Now I want to enable it... How do I do????????????????????

Does your video card (not mentioned) support it?

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Configuring XFree86 for a Non-Specific Linux Distribution
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Red Hat Linux 9: Red Hat Linux Reference Guide Chapter 7. The X Window System
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XF86Setup
XFree86 -configure
Xconfigurator
xf86cfg
xf86config
xconf
ATI Linux drivers
If you need the nVidia driver, you want the Linux IA32 driver unless you just bought the new AMD 64 bit CPU

Can I use RedHats driver in Mandrake?

There is one that includes "Linux driver including 2D, 3D, Vxmc and DRM for KM133 and PM133" but it is only for "Red Hat 7.3 - 8.0" (found at http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=184#ProSavage).
