Is my glxinfo ok??
I recently downloaded the snapshot of the open soure DRI drivers from here:
I ran the install.sh, and enabled DRI in my xorg.conf.
My frame rate in glxgears and games shot up. Fine im thinking.
Here is my glxinfo:
jammin@Jupiter:~$ glxinfo name of display: :0.0 display: :0 screen: 0
Also, i think these lines from dmesg maybe be related:
pciehp: PCI Express Hot Plug Controller Driver version: 0.5 PCI: Unable to reserve mem region #1:8000000@e0000000 for device 01:00.0 PCI: Unable to reserve mem region #1:8000000@e0000000 for device 01:00.0 mtrr: 0xe0000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xe0000000,0x1000000 [drm] Initialized radeon 1.15.0 20050208 on minor 0: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY [drm] Used old pci detect: framebuffer loaded
Also, and i know this is off-topic, but how do i allow root to use the display device (just for firestarter) as I get this error:
(firestarter:3130): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
Thanks much, its apreciated.

You don't have to worry. 0.0 is the default display in Linux. The explanation is a bit longer, but you can identify several displays in your machine (for example you can have localhost:0, localhost:1), this usually identifies a collection of screen which can be controlled by a mouse and a keyboard; thus, the second number indicates which screen are you using, being the screen a particular screen in a set of displays.
You can read a bit more of it by searching in Google, this article could be enlightning: http://www.faqs.org/docs/linux_intro/sect_7_03.html.
