  1. just an update. I had read somewhere that my 9600 would work out of the box using SimplyMepis. After all i have been through, i thought that i would put my card and mepis on another machine, and give it a shot. i first booted up and tested the fps and it was like 200 and direct rendering was a no. then i looked in the display options in the os center and selected the ati tab and check to use their driver. i rebooted and now i am running glxgears at 2000. could my xorg.conf be helpful in configuring my ati card in mandriva?? just thought,
  2. i have ran glxinfo and glxgears and i am stiil getting a low fps and no direct rendering. I will next try manually type in the dri section and the configuration from your previous post, in there as well. then i will urpmi mesa, if you think that will work
  3. I have reformatted with 2006 with all udpates from mandriva first and then i selected all (main, source, plf ..............) easy urpmi updates. everthing installed, and is ready to go. One question, when i do the easy urpmi, i cant get the last upate to finish. it just hangs. is that because it is the 2006 core update, which i already installed when i run update mandriva, through system-configuraton-packaging-mandriva updates. anyways, i just hit enter and then it states it is already installed. I have not installed anything else. for example, mesa
  4. sounds good. In case i install and get ahead of you a little before tonight, what should i be lookin for to assure me that i have matched the best driver?? a high fps with glxgears or "direct rendering yes". thanks for the help today. hopefully we will get this figured out.
  5. I placed the # in front of the line u suggested but i guess it didnt make any difference glxinfo | grep direct Loading required GL library /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 direct rendering: No OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
  6. I was also wandering if you found this post relevant to my problem. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archive/index.php/t-43256.html I dont think that anyone is on mandriva but they heavilly discuss ati 9600 and its proper driver configuration. ( I think, doesnt make to much sense to me) Anyways, i was just researching.
  7. Hope this isnt to confusing how i did it but hereit goes.

  8. I truly appreciate everything that you have done for me so far, llet alone any help you give me i the futer. I will check this post and regularly as mentioned and look forward to solving this problem toinigt. THANKS
  9. i also check my xorg.conf file and the 3 lines in the dri section that i commented out are now gone for some reason.

  14. Might it be the other way around?? i did already isntall Mesa but not mesa # urpmi mesa To satisfy dependencies, the following 3 packages are going to be installed (6 MB): libxmms1-1.2.10-20mdk.i586 xmms-1.2.10-20mdk.i586 xmms-mesa-1.2.10-20mdk.i586 Is this OK? (Y/n) y [root@localhost ryan]# urpmi Mesa The package(s) are already installed [root@localhost ryan]# I did cancel out of the above mesa install before it downloaded
  15. as of right now i have added the dri section as you mentioned above and rebooted and checke it. looked ok to me but still # glxinfo | grep direct Loading required GL library /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 direct rendering: No OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect [root@localhost ryan]#
