3D acceleration with an older voodoo3


I have an old voodoo3 and I am trying to get it to work with DRI. I am not sure what is missing here though. When I run glxinfo I get the folllowing.

gerard@turgid:~$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

Now, when I restart X this is what I get in the message log. Any idea what the problem could be.

well i don't know what steps you took in order to try and get 3d accel going on your card, but i am going to refer you to the below link
http://lhl.linuxgames.com/howto/half....5.html#AEN119

its a section in the half-life howto, but it shows a way of getting the voodoo 3 working using glide, cause of the fact they state that DRI is slower in performance ...
so maybe try these steps .
