Running Kyro with glx

I'm not completely new to linux, but still I'm still trying to get q3demo running on my pc.
Installing this baby was a challenge on itself, but i managed to get it done.
The problem is that it runs waaay to slow, a frame or two per second, maybe four on lowest graphics. Turns out (glxinfo) my glx is running on that old mesa thing.
Now I've got a Hercules Kyro card, for which I installed the drivers from the site and installed them.

I edited my xorg.conf, and stuff works fine of course, only glx info doesn't show GL_VENDOR kyrostuff, but mesa...

My question is how do i get glxinfo to show:

OpenGL vendor string: Imagination Technologies
OpenGL renderer string: PowerVR KYRO
OpenGL version string: 1.2.1


* XFree86 2D driver (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/powervr_drv.o)

* XFree86 DRI component (/usr/X11R6/modules/dri/

* kernel DRM module (/lib/modules/`uname -r`/char/drm/powervr.o)

* internal libraries (/usr/lib/lib{PVR2D,PVR2OS,PVRMMAP,SGL2,SGLMID7B}.so)

* library symlink (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/

I'm using Slackware 10.2, kernel 2.4.somthing

Thnx for your respons
