OpenGL slow with ATI Rage 128 Pro


Hi,
I've been having some problems with my ATI Rage 128 Pro agp 4x card. It seems to run much slower with OpenGL then it used to on my other linux installation, and sometimes the graphics are buggy. The card works fine under windows. I cant think that I've done anything different, but I cant remember the exact tweaks I had to do to get everything working right. Also, in my other install, I was running XFree86, and on this install im running XOrg, so that may make a difference. I'll post my xorg.conf, and glxinfo. Some things I noticed were that in glxinfo there is a lot about mesa... which I heard was used for software rendering? The glxinfo also says dirrect rendering is enabled, and I believe it is using hardware, its just much slower then it should/used to be. Another thing I noticed is that in one of the glxinfo lines it says AGP x1 instead of x4, and 3dnow! isn't there either, which my processor supports. Is there anything anybody sees that stands out as to why it would be running so bad? Plus, could anybody tell me how to fix the 1x vs 4x, and 3dnow! thing (espeically if that's the main problem)?
