    It was good while it lasted. Dominipater.
    Well, it does compile for me with Ally_S's ati_pciart.c on a fresh generic-17-11 edgy..

    The joy was short-lived as I soon discovered the LT Rage Pro in my compaq m300 notebook has only 4mb memory

    the only way i succeeded to run direct rendering with the above HOWTO is @ 800x600

    so the main problem is 1024*768*3*1 = more than mine 4MBs of onboard ram!

    that means i will never get the direct rendering with a resolution of 1024x768 (that's also the "default" lcd resolution....)?
    I guess. For 1024x768 with 4mb to work DRI should be able to do 13 bit or lower . Btw, wether I set xorg.conf to 15,16 or 24 bit I get artifacts, you? Guess also cause of memory shortage, but I don't remember having this problem in windows.
