Will 3d support be included in xfree86 for ATI IGP?


I've been trying to figure out getting 3d to work on my IGP320 graphics card but from what I've read so far it looks like a lot of work. I've read about it being necessary to patch the XFree86 setup but read that I need to do this to the Mandrake source of xfree86.

So I download the source for that after searching all over and I find it. Of course upon installing it the rpm naturally I can't find where it was installed to (why don't they put out some messages saying where things went). I still haven't even figured out a way to patch the source either.

I'm at the point where I'm just going to have to wait for xfree4.4 now. Of course I'm hoping they include support for the IGP without complicated procedures.

So, anyone have the inside track on this? Or maybe you have a simple to understand way to patch the xfree86 source and stuff? Thanks for any help.

E-Machines M5310
Mandrake 9.2
Kernel 2.6.2mm

Yeah I am really frustrated too.

HP Pavillion 4420us

I didn't know there was a patch for it. Ok I'll look for it and try on fedora
By the way I doubt they'll do anything about this card, but update newer cards...

Well, here is the info that I have found so far. If you guys can figure out how to use it tell me. The first link is the info of xfree86 and the development so far. Apparently it is being worked on at least that's what I gather from this link.

http://bugs.xfree86.org/show_bug.cgi?id=314

Next is a link to a guy who actually figured it and apparently got it to work and gives some details save for how to patch the xfree86 sources and installing it and such. I'm just not in the mood to try to figure out all of this stuff. at the moment.
