I've been following this thread on linuxquestions.org:
I want to enable DRI on my machine (if possible). My configuration is:
nVidia Riva TNT2 (vanta chipset) card (as per glxinfo output),
i810 based motherboard,
slackware linux 9.1 (kernel 2.4.22)
I modified my XF86Config file as per the instructions given in the thread. I also downloaded the nvidia driver for Riva TNT2 card, but the installer complains that "appropriate kernel interface" is not available in the downloaded package. I presume that the "kernel interface" means the device driver for the card. Is my assumption correct?
I have 3 specific questions regarding this problem:
1. anybody here (still) uses slackware 9.1 with nvidia riva tnt2 card?
2. anybody with success in enabling DRI on this configuration?
3. anybody having driver for kernel version 2.4.22?
For #3 above, I have an option of compiling the driver source code on my machine but I am trying to be a bit lazy here.
If somebody has "Yes" answer to these question, could that-somebody please help me enabling DRI?
