Hint, hint, hint ......

Ok, I've built a DRI-CVS trunk:

$ XFree86 -version

[...]

XFree86 Version 4.3.99.12 (DRI trunk LXTEC)
Release Date: 10 September 2003
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6

I started X using the radeon driver with "UseFBDev"   "on":

The speed in starting X is more than twice. Applications are looking
more brilliant and overall I suspect, that the speed in fact is much
higher ;-)


I have to put

Section "ServerFlags"
      Option "NoPM" "yes"
EndSection

to my config, because there where warnings to the APM function (not
supported).

Ciao

Elimar
