Red face How to turn on direct Rendering for ATI x1300 PRO in Mandriva 2008

I don't know how to turn on direct rendering.
I'm running compiz and it is kind of choppy at times, so i typed in the Konsole:

[irek@localhost ~]$ glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
[irek@localhost ~]$
How do i turn it on?

toggle kernel framebuffer device interface for Xorg so that it works for you, by reconfiguring package or so - maybe it doesn't matter
