Voodoo5 & DRI

Hi ..

Does anyone know how to enable DRI ?

I have
(1) P450 ,a computer with voodoo3 , c-media sound card
(2) P800 , voodoo5 , sound blaster live

The voodoo 5 is suppose to be the best between them but the voodoo 5 one prove to be the most problemistic , d3d driver in window is crapy.

the voodoo 5 one has glxgear of 150~200 fps
voodoo 3 have around 400~500 fps
1) XFree86-4

have entry

load glx
load dri

mode 0666

just like the dri's user guide

cat /var/log/XFree86.3

direct rendering enable


direct rendering : NO <----- how is this possible ??

anyone know how to get this entry to yes ?

In the DRI's web site it mention that we have to enable the master bus, this is what I did

> setpci -s 01:00.0 4.w
>run this script
dev=01:00.0 # change as appropriate
echo Enabling bus mastering on device $dev
setpci -s $dev 4.w=$(printf %x $((0x$(setpci -s $dev 4.w)|4)))
echo Enabling bus mastering on host bridge $dev
setpci -s $dev 4.w=$(printf %x $((0x$(setpci -s $dev 4.w)|4)))

check again:
>setpci -s 01:00.0 4.w
0003 <---- still

went to bios to change it but can't fins anything about master bus enable thing <--- what is it called ?

PS. just for comparision .... my voodoo3 machine have the "0003" output as well but when I did the same script the thing still give me a 0003 output =*(
