    3D direct rendering


    Hi all-

    I'm running FC4 with the latest kernel on an Averatec 3200 laptop (1.67 GHz AMD XP-M Mobile, 1 GB RAM).

    I have a factory VIA S3 UniChrome vid card for which I have enabled direct rendering. The problem is: when I boot up, glxinfo states that direct rendering is enabled, but if I logout and log back in, the direct rendering is no longer enabled...I have to reboot to get it working again.

    I'd appreciate any ideas or comments on how to work around this...thanx!

    Make sure you check X log file for potential clues :
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    or
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i s3
    etc.

    thanks for the quick reply antidrugue...

    >> cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    (EE) VIA(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.

    >> cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i s3 produces no useful output...

    I'm not sure where to go from here...below is a snippet from my xorg.conf :

    Section "DRI"
    Group 0
    Mode 0666
    EndSection

    Do you think there might be some option I need to set in this section?

    Thanks for you input!

    btw, how do you produce those nice little "Code:" boxes?
