Hello. Unsatisfied with current savage support ,
I've done more 'dumpster diving' and found much better computer,
with AGP support. I've put matrox g450 dual head card inside,
and it booted knoppix just fine, with (partial, no composite, but well)
3d acceleration, and glxgears happily working.
BUT to my utter disappointment, after installing disk with gentoo,
GLX acceleration did not work.
everything seems to be detected, much like with savage chip on previous
computer, but glxgears window remain blank,
google earth starts up and displays earth and textures,
but displays no labels, nor any text really (large white rectangles
get displayed instead)
i've upgraded to whatever is bleeding edge in gentoo (libdrm, mesa, xorg)
so i just notify the issue . i will try to downgrade/bisect today,
but as i've tried same thing without luck with savage it sounds i've hit
same bug and there will be little luck in downgrades...
