This morning I came up with the great of putting cs 1.6 on my old crappy pc using cedega. It was(and still is) hell!
I had forgotten my root password, so I had to reinstall my linux distrobution(which takes some time since it's really slow).
My pc was really slow, and I figured out that I was short of memory(64 mb didn't appeared to be enough ), so I had to create a swap partition manually edit some files to make it automaticly add the swap partition.
After that I had to figure out what video card was in it, I found back a manual, which said it was a diamond thing.
So I figured, let's do some googling, so I did and I found that I could use the nvidia driver. But some how I couldn't get it to compile the kernel, although I had all the things I needed. It appeared to be that assigning an irq to vga was disabled(atleast, that's what some websites said), but my bios didn't allowed me to switch it on(well, I couldn't find it, so I assume I can't switch it on, since the mobo is pretty old).
After some googling I found that I could see my exact gpu name through:
And my video card appeared to be Rendition Verite!!!
So I set driver of my video card to rendition, hoping it would all work fine, but still no opengl acceleration!
I've reinstalled mesa, and added some DRI things to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf all to try to get opengl acceleration, but of no avail.
I'm going nutts here, because I pretty much spend my hall day trying to get it working. So I still have no opengl acceleration.
Can somebody *PLEASE* help me?
Thanx in advance,

I found that if the chipset of your card is Rendition Verite you have a Diamond Stealth II S220 videocard, so apparently, I *do* have a diamond card.

Check out my post at

It's mostly about the Intel i810 family, but most of the things in there are universal, especially the kernel config areas.
