If you want to play games in linux I would suggest a nvidia card.
You may be able to get direct rendering with mesa;
http://www.mesa3d.org/
But not sure how good it is...
Also you may want to add some ram

do you have this section in your xorg.conf file:

-------------
Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection
-------------

...?

Dave,

Let me know if you get it to work. I have tried just about everything. Setting the DRI on the xorg, changing to 16 bit, etc. Next computer I get will have an nvidia card.

Have you added yourself to the video group in /etc/group?

Easisest way is as root run:
Code:
usermod -Gvideo,cdrom,disk,audio dave2005
(Where 'dave2005' is your Slackware username, and -G is followed by every group you are also a member of apart from 'users'. In this case, I reccommend video, cdrom, disk and audio (possibly also 'wheel' if you plan to use sudo and limit who can use it)).
