4 ah, so this worked? I havent been able to get my voodoo 3 to work and I'd
5 apriciate any pointers you might have on the subject. I havent recompiled
6 X yet, which is my next step.
8 AFAIK (speaking out of my other end here), the main gentoo developers seem
9 to be Nvidia folks, so they dont seem to give much of a hoot about tdfx or
10 DRM/DRI (which is fine and makes total sense). If you can write a
11 mini-HOWTO on this, that would be great.
13 3dfx may be gone, but thier cards will linger for a while....I think a
14 "3dfx" USE variable might be a good X can compile properly
15 when needed and such....hell, USE settings for all the popular chipsets
16 might be worthwhile.....but, yalls a busy bunch....*shrug*
