3D Acceleration on ATI (Diamond) Fire GL1


Does anyone know how to get 3d acceleration (dri?) enabled on this card?

It is supposed to be fully opengl compatible, but the drivers loaded for it by FC2 and suse 9.0 say 3d accel is not possible.

I tried the "latest" drivers from ati, and from various other sources, but no luck.

[Also if anyone buys this card and wonders (like me ) why the desktop starts up in 4bit color (yuk) the card only supports 24/32b.]

Is your XFree86 version correct? Those drivers for FireGL1 on ati's page need either X4.1.0 or X4.0.2 (the first three numbers in driver version tell you that).
You can check your version with, for example, this script on ati's page but if you are using the standard XFree86 that came with FC2 or Suse, you'll propably need to downgrade.
