View Full Version : [xubuntu] glxinfo direct rendering no

May 4th, 2008, 09:22 PM
Ive got an iBook G4 with xubuntu 7.10 installed. It uses the radeon 9200 agp 4x graphics. I have set the driver to both ati and radeon.

When I run glxinfo I have direct rendering no in the returned info for both ati and radeon drivers.

Does anyone know how I could enable direct rendering?

Many Thanks

This part of the powerpcfaq has some good info on dri and glxgears for those ppc's that can run it:

Hopefully this still works with Hardy. Only running nvidia here (nv) so I can't join the fun. :)

Thanks for your reply. I got it working!

I cant believe I didnt work it out for myself. Ive read that wiki faq a dozen times in the last few days! I did speed read the compiz section though so....

Once again, thankyou!
