Not since XFree86-4 was committed to Woody and DRI is a part of
Linux-2.2.18. My Banshee and my V3-3000 are humming along quite nicely
running OpenGL screensavers (apt-get install xscreensaver-gl) almost
faster than I can see what's going on, not to mention Heavy Gear II ;).
IF you are running Potato and IF you are using XFree86-3, dev3dfx is a
bear to deal with. I'd recommend at least updating the kernel on your
Potato box to 2.2.18 and upgrading X (via compiling it yourself or using
the unsupported debs), it's much less of a headache in the long run, and
you'll probably be quite a bit happier with it.
