Re: voodoo3 + 3dfx.o module source

Hi Bobby,
          Looks like there is no 3dfx.o module in your
/lib/modules/kernel_version/misc directory. You can either compile the
module and do a make install and check that it's in the right place. Or,
alternatively get the driver from 3dfx's site and debianise the rpm with
alien and install and compile as before. I didn't use the deb's, compiling
everything from debianised (alien is of use here) 3dfx's rpms. However the
message is common when Q3 can't find/load the 3dfx driver module. You
should have a /dev/3dfx device as well. Check the permissions on this.
Before you try and run Q3, run the three 3dfx test programs 3DFXTest and
the two glide ones. You should get a blue screen exited via the esc
key. You also need a similar resolution to the glide resolution in your
XF86Config file. i.e. you need an entry for 800x600 if your trying to run
the 3dfx card at 800x600.
