No 3D support Radeon 7500 PCI


I can't seem to find any drivers / tutorials to help me get 3D support with my Radeon 7500 PCI card. I've searched many places but found nothing .

Gentoo Linux
2.6.7 Kernel
XFree86 Version 4.3.0.1

/sbin/lspci output:

VGA Compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500]

ATI doesn't support or even make available any drivers for your card (or any card below the 8500 i think) so try this :

http://dri.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/m...tegoryHardware

I used that for the same card you have but the AGP model. Not exactly sure about 3D acceleration. If there is any, it would probably be useless for any linux games.
