Which module are you using? When I used a Voodoo3 I used tdfx + DRI and I was getting 500+ fps on glxgears.

if slack 9 is anything like slack 8.1 you'll need to recompile X to fully enable voodoo3 support. the third ('extras') cd is your friend here.

Thumbs up 3dfx Redering on Slackware 9.0

i've installed glide located in "/extra/3dfx" extra files in slackware FTP.

activate on XF86Config

#---------------
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
#---------------
Section
Mode 0666
EndSection
#---------------
#Screen sections
DefaultDepth 16 #enable
# i don't now why it dont work with 24 and 32, maybe its the dri 3dfx driver...
www.dri.sourceforge.net
#---------------

running glxinfo -> direct rendering: Yes

running glxgears -> 7583 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1516.600 FPS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i installed Unreal Tournament, and it's go ok!
