3dfx hardware acc in RH9


How do I get my voodoo3 card to do 3d acc?

I have just installed RH9 a week ago, came from Win2k and is not going back. I like the challange of linux, and a challange it is!
It runs petty smooth 2d 1024*768 but no 3d, not that I need it much, but would like to play Q2.

Where do I get the drivers? cant find them on 3dfx.com
How do i set it up? Am still prety new, so please be nice

Frederik, Denmark

The tdfx drivers are included with the standard XFree86 installation. What driver _are _ you using now?

The setup that Mesa described in the link above should be all you need.

Try redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfigure
