glxinfo problem how to change direct rendering variable


I'm having trouble running some programs recently. I did a little bit search and found that my problem is related to opengl. I need to change the direct rendering value that is reported in glxinfo

name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
Any idea how I'm gonna do this?

If your video card supports direct rendering, you can enable it in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The info here and here may help with that. They suggest using Load "dri" - but check your card first. For my NVidia I had to remove that setting.
