I've been trying to get the accelerated mode working with the new version
of XFree86. I did have it working in the 3.3.5 version, using the
modified SVGA server supplied by 3dfx.
I've since updated the kernel to 2.2.18, and compiled in DRI support for
the 3dfx card. The config file appears to be loading the DRI modes and
it seems to be responding. I went through a walk thru provided on one of
the DRI websites, but they only listed how to check if it was working,
and not how to fix it if a particular step wasn't working.
Thinking the kernel option may provide other features that the xfree
source may need, I recompiled xfree again. After updating, I checked the
directory /usr/X11/lib/modules/dri to see if the tdfx.o driver was created.
I was trying to get Quake3 working... that doesn't want to work under
4.02. I also loaded Quake2, I've run it using just the softx mode which
is ok for 640x320 mode, but up the mode to 800x600 or 1024x720 ... choppy
as hell. I tried changing the the Video option to 3dfx... but it just
I also tried running other games that require OpenGL...
Can someone help shed some light on what I may be doing wrong, or point
me to a site that will help me configure the new XFree 4.02 to work with
the accelerator in the Voodoo3 card.
Thanks in advance.
