direct rendering : yes

I do not want to go about installing openSUSE again as after installation of the proprietary ATI drivers display becomes pathetic (scrolling of windows , dragging windows seem to take up lot of time) and I am not aware of reversal of the process. Hence I would not prefer installing the graphics drivers again ... so how do i provide you the log files?


anuvrat@linux-0k82:~> glxinfo |grep -i "direct"
direct rendering: Yes
was the output you asked for.

You can create your own file called xorg.conf and put in in /etc/X11. But I don't think this problem can be solved using xorg.conf, maybe I'm wrong.

If 3D performance isn't extremely important to you maybe you can try a FOSS driver instead, such as xf86-video-ati (which is what I'm using right now)?

I installed Sidux just for fun on a vacant extended partition I had .. and now I on this one the ctrl+alt+f1 thing is working fine.
I am also able to boot into Sidux without specifying acpi=off at the boot menu. My battery is also recognized by it.

Now how do I see what is being done by this OS that the other ones are not able to do??

However there are only two problems that are currently prevailing with it namely the sound problem " no sound in the speakers and one of the two audio jacks of my laptop." and the jerky windows "when ever I drag windows across the desktop the redrawing of the windows is visible creating the illusion of very slow computer"

suggestions required ...
