Recompile kernel.
Disable dri in the kernel.
Build the kernel module from downloading the modules file at dri.sourceforge.net.

http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh/linux-...lsource.tar.gz

untar the file - compile the modules , then just copy the tdfx.o file
that was built into ........

/lib/modules/<your-kernel-version>/kernel/drivers/char/drm/

run 'depmod -a'

That should do it.

DRI & Voodoo for slackware users..

1) Download and install glide libraries, just to be sure install all of them,

ftp://ftp.edisontel.it/pub/Slackware...2.x-i386-1.tgz
ftp://ftp.edisontel.it/pub/Slackware...3.x-i386-1.tgz
(choose a mirror site from http://www.slackware.com/getslack/)


2) Download and install your voodoo glide DRI support

ftp://ftp.edisontel.it/pub/Slackware...ide/voodoo???/
(again choose a mirror site from http://www.slackware.com/getslack/)


3) Compile your kernel and make sure you have these enabled as module or built-in

on "Character devices"


(This is a must)
<x> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)

(Choose the best for your case)
[x] Intel 440LX/BX/GX and I815/I820/I830M/I830MP/I840/I845/I850/I860 support
[ ] Intel I810/I815/I830M (on-board) support
[ ] VIA chipset support
[ ] AMD Irongate, 761, and 762 support
[ ] AMD 8151 support
[ ] Generic SiS support
[ ] ALI chipset support
[ ] Serverworks LE/HE support

(This is a must)
[x] Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 DRI support)
[ ] Build drivers for old (XFree 4.0) DRM
--- DRM 4.1 drivers

(Choose the best for your case)
<x> 3dfx Banshee/Voodoo3+
< > ATI Rage 128
< > ATI Radeon
< > Intel I810
< > Intel 830M
< > Matrox g200/g400
< > SiS


4) If for some reason you installed MESA make sure that the command:

strings /usr/lib/libGL.so |grep DRI

,displays something like that on the screen..

DRI_glXUseXFont
__glXFindDRIScreen
XF86DRIQueryExtension
XF86DRIQueryVersion
XF86DRIQueryDirectRenderingCapable
XF86DRIOpenConnection
XF86DRIAuthConnection
XF86DRICloseConnection
XF86DRIGetClientDriverName
XF86DRICreateContext
XF86DRIDestroyContext
XF86DRICreateDrawable
XF86DRIDestroyDrawable
XF86DRIGetDrawableInfo
XF86DRIGetDeviceInfo
XF86DRIOpenFullScreen
XF86DRICloseFullScreen
XFree86-DRI
LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH
LIBGL_DRIVERS_DIR
XF86DRIQueryDirectRenderingCapable returned false
XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: %d.%d.%d %s (screen %d)
XF86DRIQueryDirectRenderingCapable failed

If not, then type:

a) XFree86 -version (this will provide you with your XFree86 version, try to remember that)
b) Download again the package of your XFree86
(give a shot in one of the mirror sites, dir "slackware/x/xfree86-4.?.?-i386-2.tgz" )
c) rm /usr/lib/*GL*
d) rm /usr/X11R6/lib/*GL*
e) Install again the package of your XFree86


5) Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config

and add..
# This loads the GLX module
Load "glx"

#This loads the DRI module
Load "dri"
EndSection


Make sure theres something like this on the Device section...
Section "Device"
Identifier "Voodoo3000"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Driver "tdfx"
VideoRam 16384
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
EndSection

also make sure (for voodoo3+) on the Screen section that you have...
DefaultColorDepth 16


6) Well now everything should be fine. startx and type in a console:

glxinfo|grep direct

it should return,

direct rendering: Yes

Angry a warning that drives me mad

Problem:

from XFree86.0.log:
(WW) TDFX(0): Failed to set up write-combining range (0xd8000000,0x2000000)
everything else seems to be ok. I have an AGP Voodoo3 2000 with 16MB RAM and via apollo pro 133a chipset (Soyo 6vca board). Anyone knows what this warning message means and how I can remedy the situation ?

Would have been nice to start your own
thread rather than re-animating a zombie
from the days of old... that thing hadn't been
touched since March.

Are you running out of MTTRs?


Cheers,
Tink
