video card harware acceleration

I don't think I have video card hardware acceleration with X. I try to play tuxracer and I have major lag.

Here's my config files

I have typed xorgconfig as root (I use a slightly modified Slackware 10.0) and used a radeon driver for my Xstasy 9200SE. Is there a particular reason why I don't seem to have hardware acceleration? Thanks

You choose "radeon" in your .conf file.
This driver is for ATI integrated chipset and provides hardware acceleration only for a limited models of chip.
I have a laptop with an integrated ATI chipset (IGP 340M) using such driver but hardware acceleration, unfortunately, is missing. I'd suggest you go here
and check if 3D acceleration is available for your chipset, in order you avoid time wasting.
Another chance if you google around the web, may be there's a patch somewere.
Hope this helps

Yes I have 3D acceleration. Thanks for the link.
But I have no idea how to search google (you could consider me a google noob ) for the patches.... I'll try anyway.
