Wow

This is AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!

THX guys!

I'm just not sure about the glxgears FPS.

Is this good:
Code:
[irek@localhost ~]$ glxgears
8095 frames in 5.1 seconds = 1600.433 FPS
7930 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1585.538 FPS
7930 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1581.469 FPS
7930 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1584.163 FPS
X connection to :93.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
[irek@localhost ~]$
?

Question

hmm i Tried to install Cedega and it said:
OpenGL direct rendering Failed!

so i typed in the konsole:

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

You should be able to get 3000+ out of it. I had upto 5600 back in 2006, but it's dropped to only 3600 at this time and hardware/kernel/driver.

Make sure you have fglrx in your xorg.conf file and not radeon.

Also type this in a console to see the output of xsession start.

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE

(You need to be root)Will show any screen errors.

Your repo's to update are,
contrib_backports
main
main_updates
main_backports
contrib
contrib_updates
non-free
non-free_updates
non-free_backports
plf-free
plf-free_backports
plf-nonfree
plf-nonfree_backports

console commands
urpmi.addmedia
urpmi.update -a

But you may be better off going to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ and follow the instructions there. It will give you a list to cut and paste into the console, then sit back and wait for the repos lists to set-up your database on your computer. <edit> some of the files are 50Mb </edit> gw

I hope this is what you are after.

Cheers, Glenn

Ok so i typed the command:

Code:
[root@localhost irek]# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER

OK. sorry for the time, festive season and all

fglrx is right to load but aiglx is not, when fglrx depends on it most of the time, depending on your card and/or preference.

I looking in to it, aiglx and xorg.

What version kernel and ati driver are you using?

If all is well in that department, then we may just need a few lines.

I'll get back soon. Glenn

Here is a pretty good post arguing between aiglx and xgl.
http://mandrivausers.org/lofiversion...hp/t34606.html
I use xgl and it is probably responsible for my low frame rates in glxgears. But the 3d performance is far-out! Playing sauerbraten at well over 150fps(OS-FPS(quake3-like) game).

You might consider utilising xgl instead, unless you can find a default xorg.conf config file from ati or someplace.

regards, Glenn.

OH, and you can use what ever ascii editor you like, kate, joe, vim, kedit, nano(, etcetera).

kwrite may work, but....

Compiz-fusion is the current "version" of compiz and beryl.

aiglx=beryl, and xgl=compiz(-fusion). Just a hint. GW

I'm actually Running Compiz (that came with Manndriva) so you have any specific way to configure Xorg.conf for XGL ?

The package is x11-server-xgl.

IIRC these packages need to be installed in order. Otherwise some packages may be installed but won't have the dependencies they require.

Like, drak3d-dkms-xgl-compiz. You may or may not require dkms.

During the drak3d setup it will search for x11-server-xgl compiz compiz-decorator-gtk gset-compiz compiz-decorator-kde. And emerald and ccsm.


I have to search through my cd-backups to find the lines we need to add to /etc/xorg.conf and /etc/sysconfig/compositing-wm.
