Hi all, and thank you to everyone who answered my last message;
I've compiled the 2.4.1 kernel from Red Hat's Wolverine beta, and only
some fine tuning is left... I'm now close to being able to compile the
I only have a few minor questions left:
1) The Compilation Guide says that AGP support in the kernel is "not
required" for Voodoo3. Does this mean that it is completely unnecessary
with no performance loss, or that it is not ABSOLUTELY necessary but
good to have (I'm using a Voodoo3 3000 AGP)?
2) In editing the hosts.def file (I'm using the CVS I pulled down on
March 26, 2001 here) I've commented out the following lines:
#define DefaultGcc2AxpOpt -O2 -mcpu=ev6
#define LibraryCDebugFlags -O2 -mcpu=ev6
<I left the next line in since it is the default for non-Alpha>
#define MesaUse3DNow YES
# define MesaUseKatmai YES
Any problem with commenting any of this out (using a Celeron with no
3DNow or SSE)?
3) I changed the line that used to be something like:
#define XF86CardDrivers vga tdfx mga ati i810 glint, etc.
#define XF86CardDrivers vga tdfx glint
since I don't want anything but what is necessary for a Voodoo3 to
compile. Any problem with this? Also, can I safely remove "vga" and
"glint" as well?
