    slack10,voodoo3 3000,poor quality,frames dropped, CPU100%?

    I have just installed slack10, and I have to say I love it. (much better than FC1)
    The only problem I have run into so far is the video quality of avi and other video playback. MPlayer and xine both playback video files poorly. I am not sure if my kernel is compiled correctly. Xine is a nice app and I would like to use it. I am using a voodoo3 3000 16MB AGP. What would be one of the first steps to see if my kernel is compiled with the right modules for this card. I am guessing but I think I may need a module called "tdfxfb"? should I use "lsmod" to look for a certian module, and if its loaded? Any help would be great.. Thanks

    I have tried using xorgconfig and selected voodoo3 generic, but playback quality is still poor.

    here is some output.
    sorry is so long and cluttered.

    last time I tried something wild I didnt know much about I tried, $modprobe tdfxfb and then my screen clicked and wnet all out of wack. I was not in X. I then tried to $reset and that didnt work. The screen might have clicked and then gone blank, I might have pressed Ctrl-c, and then it went crazy. Not really sure.. I was up really late last night working on that. Then I could not $reset my screen so I had to reboot. Dont know if that tells you any thing.
    Thanks again, gplacek

    first I speek very bad englich I hope you can understand it

    1. include agp support, dri support for your card in the kernel

    2. lower the collor depht to 16 bits, then you shold have dri from hardware

    3. se man hdparm, for settings that can inprove your dvd playback for ex.
    hdparm -d1 -X33 /dev /hdd

  3. #3
    I forgott to say you have to have kernel 2.6.x to have support for voodo3
    hardware acceleration
