i've been readin mesa documentation....and i read about hardware rendering, and software rendering. i have an ATI radeon 9550. and it plays half-life 2 perfectly on high settings on windows. when i put it on linux. i open up an openGL screen saver, it says 600 polygons, and 13 fps...that is really low.
im thinking mesa is using the software render, and not the hardware renderer(also called Mesa DRL i think?). how do i find out which one im currently using?
