new to slackware, help with ati drivers
Hello. I have just set up myself a new slackware box to play around with. I am comming over from my Genntoo system. I am not really a newbie anymore, but I still find out something new to learn every day. But heres my problem:
I cannot get the OpenGL performance that I am looking for. I have installed the ati drivers from teh website (with sh ./ati-drivers.run). I then copied my old X11/xorg.conf file from gentoo (configured to work with the ati-drivers) to my slackware box, and started up x. X works fine, I just am having horrible perfomance when it comes to openGL programs (not games, but more like the screensavers). How can I fix my OpenGL perfomance? Im not sure what the "necessary" measures are to set up the ati stuff on slackware, but I am assuming that its generally the same throughout each distro. Another thing I noticed, is on gentoo to get your opengl working with the ati drivers you would run "eselect opengl set ati", which would swich the opelgl drivers to the ati ones, however, there is no "eslect" commmand with the ati drivers that were installed. Any ideas?
I read somewhere about linking somthign with the Xfree86 conf to the xorg.conf, which I havent done, is that necessary?
