Re: Misdetection of Voodoo3?

Not sure if this'll help or not.. I had the same problem, ever after re-compiling the Voodoo 3
DRM module.  In the device section, I had to specifically state I was using a Voodoo 3:
  Section "Device"
      Identifier "Voodoo3"
      Driver     "tdfx"
      VendorName "3dfx"

  Now that I think about it, this may be mentioned in the Voodoo 3 section of the DRI User's Guide
at dri.sourceforge.net.
