1 or 8-01 as the package is called... Has anyone tried them yet?
3 With a bit of tweaking the previous ebuild, I managed to install them.
4 So far they're no worse than 8.40.4 (8.443.1 is unusable for me because
5 I have a 1680x1050 resolution which the driver doesn't support!), but
6 they're not as good as the glory days of 8.3?.? where I had much greater
7 fps and GL screensavers actually worked.
9 Anyway, I'm seeing this when I run glxgears:
10 Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
12 And this when I run fgl_glxgears:
13 Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
14 Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
15 X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
16 Major opcode of failed request: 161 (GLX)
17 Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
18 Serial number of failed request: 30
19 Current serial number in output stream: 30
21 There are a few X errors too:
23 $ grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log
24 Current Operating System: Linux orpheus 2.6.22-suspend2-r1 #2 SMP PREEMPT Fri Aug 24 10:17:53 CST 2007 i686
25 (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
26 (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
27 (EE) fglrx(0): [pcie] Failed to gather memory of size 262144Kb for PCIe. Error (-1007)
28 (EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.

43 (EE) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Unable to parse 'null' as a map specifier string.
44 (EE) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Unable to parse 'null' as a map specifier string.
46 so I'm having a few issues. Of course, 3D performance is horrible.
47 I've tried searching various forums, but I can't find anything that
48 fixes the dri error. I've checked xorg.conf has "Load dri" and
49 Section "DRI"
50 Group "video"
51 Mode 0666
52 EndSection
54 and also `eselect opengl set ati` has been done.
56 any help would greatly appreciated! thanks!
