Quake 3 demo
- I have recently upgraded from RH7.0 -> RH7.1.
I was hoping that I could now run the Quake 3 demo but no luck; the
menu screen come up corrupted so I assume it is a video problem.
Hardware is a Inspiron 8000 with the 32Mb ATI Rage Mobility card.
I did try installing the ATI-4.0.2.i386.tar.gz files but nothing
seems to have changed. Have searched the web for further instructions
but apart from issuing 'modprobe agpgart' and 'modprobe r128' (still
no change) and editing my XF86Config-4 file to have:
I am wondering if all I need is an extra modeline for the Quake
screen resolution. But I don't think I have hw accelaration running
yet as the OpenGL screensavers still crawl.
I have some additional questions:
1. Whats the difference between the XF86Config & XF86Config-4 files?
Are they both used?
2. Is it worth upgrading to XFree86 4.1?
3. I have read people reporting the number of FPS they get before
and after getting hardware accelaration from 'gears'. I assume
this is an OpenGL screensaver type app; I found 2 versions though
one via xscreensaver-demo & one through the Gnome screensaver
config utility. But how do I get the FPS info?
Now I am at a bit of a loss. Please help - I need to start fragging...
