Ok. This is a dying old card, on a dying old computer. I know.
I'm trying to run the glinfo demo on a 133mhz rhumatising Cyrix, equipped
with a Pure3D I card (Voodoo1 based, 4 megs textures, 2 megs framebuffer).
I've compiled Mesa 4.0 with glide2 on a Debian unstable system, every package
being latest available. The demos are compiled against xlibmesa 4.1.0-3 (Mesa
3.5.1, if I recall correctly) but are actually running against the right
libGL.so using LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Kernel is 2.4.12 with Robert Love's preempt patch 2.4.12-3. I did not find
the /dev/3dfx modules for 2.4.x, but thought that running as root would solve
the problem, am I right?
How can I force Mesa to recognize the card? Could it be because its not
compiled againt Mesa 4.0? (doubt it myself -- wouldn't run if that wasn't
right) Or do I really need /dev/3dfx for 2.4? (No problem running the
programs as root)
The card actually shows right in /proc/pci:
Bus 0, device 13, function 0:
Multimedia video controller: 3Dfx Interactive, Inc. Voodoo (rev 2).
