I am struggling
for a while now with getting DRI enabled with my sis630 video. I upgraded xfree to 4.4.0 and have kernel 2.6.3. When I wanted to get the latest sis driver from Winischhofer's
site, there is only a precompiled XFree86 driver for X compiled with gcc 3.x, and I have gcc 2.95. I tried compiling X and/or the driver from source before, but for some reason that didn't want to work.
I used to have gcc 3.x, but for some reason (I think it was when I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.3) I had to downgrade it to 2.95.
How do I go about now? Is it safe to upgrade gcc? Or will that cause problems with other stuff?
