Hello all,

my 3D plots were rather slow, and I decided to check:

$> glxinfo
direct rendering: No

Well, I dug and dug, and here's what I got:

For a functional Hardware Acceleration with Radeon 9200/9000:
- agp, intel-apg (or other), drm and radeon drivers
- glx, dri and radeon modules loaded from Radeon

But somehow it's not working. Then I came across a post mentioning
hardware acceleration had been dropped in favour of nice fonts (??).

I'd like to get my graphics back on hardware, but can't begin to
understand how. Does anyone have a clue that could help me?

I'm using an ATI Radeon 9200SE here and glxinfo shows:
direct rendering: Yes

I'm running the latest Debian Sid. For a long time I couldn't get more
than about 14fps in ppracer, but I see I'm now getting ~77fps. (It used
to be about 110fps in Xfree86, but it looks really good and has more
detail with the 77fps now, so I can't complain.)

A side question: How do you see the fps value in ppracer? And why you are using a game for a quantitative measurement of your graphics performance? I use for the same porpouses glxgears & fgl_glxgears (coming with thw fglrx driver)
