    ati Rage Mobility 3D acceleration


    I follow this tutorial http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-7200.html
    to install my ATI Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x (rev 64) on my laptop.

    After successfully install mach64 (but common-module doesn't want to be install) i reboot my laptop. When i try to test if 3D acceleration is supported:
    Code:
    $ glxgears 
    "Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual"
    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep render 
    direct rendering: No
    but when i see the Xorg.log
    Code:
    # cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep render 
    (II) ATI(0): Direct rendering enabled
    Anyone can help me ??
    thanks

    I have detailed instructions at home, but for now, suffice it to say that a) it's just not worth it, and b) it's just not worth it.

    Step one, compile a custum version of Xorg 6.8, as 6.7 will not support mach64 3D.

    Step 2, edit a bunch of config files.

    Step 3, once it's working realize that you've *doubled* your fps, from a whopping 15 to 30

    What's your computer specs? Mine's a Compaq Armada m700 with the same card.

    d/l the 6.8 CVS files from Xorg.

    Code:
    echo '#define DevelDRIDrivers YES' >> config/cf/host.def && make World
    You Make world b/c you just modified the makefile and have to re-generate it

    Install the latest mach64 and common from dri.sf.net.
