|shining||ben_m: what are you using?|
glxgears works fine I think
|shining||ben_m: that's the open driver|
I thought he meant something different.
|ben_m||glxinfo works fine too|
|xarragon||ben_m: Yeah, instead of nvidias proprietary drivers I can use the 'nv' driver, which is open source.|
|ben_m||even direct rendering|
|xarragon||ben_m: However, I'm not really sure about 3d acceleration...|
|Henni||xarragon: nv doesn't have 3D Acceleration - but the radeon does|
|shining||The Radeon 9100 is a rerelease of the Radeon 8500|
how old is that?
|xarragon||Henni: Really? That sounds like the perfect solution for ben_m then.|
|shining||xarragon: accel for old radeon cards should work just fine|
xarragon: for newer cards, it's more unstable, but still usable
|ben_m||I have no idea what you're talking about.|
|shining||and for the last ones, I think it's not possible, but I'm not up to date :d|
|xarragon||Henni: Do you need to change anything besides the xorg driver entry for it to work?|
|shining||ben_m: so glxgears is the only gl program that run ? everything else just fails ? :o|
|shining||xarragon: it's there by default afaik|
|Henni||xarragon: Load "dri" and Load "glx" have to be in the 'Section "Module"'|
|ben_m||It's just freezing when I do something with opengl|
like, when I try to rotate in blender it freezes.
|Henni||and /dev/dri/* must have the correct permissions|
|xarragon||ben_m: What drivers are you using now?|
|shining||ben_m: so that chip is a rerelease of an older card, but is it recent?|
|Henni||(if the user is in the video group it should be just fine)|
|xarragon||Henni: Okay, thanks for the tip. Nvidia typically requires installation of a custom glx library.|
ben_m: Yeha, but did you get them from radeons website?
