Thank you very much. I found that page earlier, but I thought it was
only for 32bit. Obviously, I was mistaken. I downloaded the installer,
and everything went rather smoothly. The module compiles and loads
fine, and the X-server starts ok, log file looks fine.
However, all GL applications still say indirect rendering via Mesa.
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 131 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
Which is weird, since according to X -verbose everything should be
fine and ready to go.
Also when I try to configure dual screen, it becomes very psychedelic
:-) Not useable in a normal state of mind, at least. And I had 2
crashes during console swiches.
Following the success reports here, I will go back to XFree86 4.3, and
see whether that works better.
