fglrx: 3d-Acceleration still slow
I still have the problem, that although my fglrx-driver is correctly installed
(and 3D-functions are active) , the acceleration is still slow.
fgl_glxgears is running, the cube and the wheel is shown, but the framerate is
about 50 FPS (sgould be much much higher !)
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.905 FPS
297 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.396 FPS
297 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.396 FPS
glxinfo |grep glx shows this:
glxinfo |grep glx
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
client glx vendor string: ATI
client glx version string: 1.3
client glx extensions:
And fglrxinfo shows this:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X700 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5946 (8.27.10)
Finally glxinfo |grep direct shows this:
glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
IMO everything looks fine, but there is something, which is breaking
(braking ?) the system. What could that be ? Is there a difference between
AGP and PCIE ?
I googled, and someone wrote about wrong MTRR. O.k., checked this:
reg00: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0xc8000000 (3200MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
This seems o.k., too ! (I have a 1GB-machine)
Kernel an system is 64-bit, with installed ia32-libs.

I do not know, where I have to look now. I suppose, there is either a
kernel-problem (the kernel agp-gart is not compiled!) or a configuration
This is the part of xorg.conf. It doesn`t change anything, if I comment the
lines in or out:
Identifier "ATI X700"
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "agpclock=0"
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "on"
Option "no_accel" "no"
Option "no_dri" "no"
# Option "Stereo" "off"
# Option "FSAAenable" "0"
# Option "UseFastTLS" "0"
# #VideroRam 65536
I hope with this bunch of informations someone might have a clue.
Thanks for any help !
P.S. Yes, I know: ATI sux ! But this notebook was exchanged by the
manufacturer as guarantee ( I former had a NVidia-card on it) , but the
manufacturer does no more built notebooks with NVidia-cards.
