3d direct render with intel i810

I don't have a question... rather I just figured out something that I have been googling on for quite awhile. I just thought I'd post my solution to help the next guy.

I was trying to get the direct rendering to work with the intel i810 chipset onboard 3d. For the life of me I couldn't get direct rendering enabled... until I read the following

There they will tell you how to setup your xfree86 config, and they also mention that for this driver 3d rendering DOES NOT work running in a 32 bit color depth. only 16!

So all I had to do was set my color down to 16 and restart x. No Problems!

Hope this helps

Next time I'll know where to put my non questions. Just a side note, I had another system that had a similar problem. No 3d! It had a voodoo3 card. Someone had told me that voodoo3 3d was no longer supported in linux due to something with modern X servers... but if you look at that link i gave in my first post it turns out that the voodoo3 has the same issue. Flip it to 16 bit mode and suddenly 3d acceleration works. I think they call that "two birds with one stone".
