Just a curiosity...
On a 9.0/i386 box I have:
> #pciconf -lv
> vgapci0 at pci0:1:5:0: class=0x030000 card=0x17041565 chip=0x97101002 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
> vendor = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
> device = 'RS880 [Radeon HD 4200]'
> class = display
> subclass = VGA
> %glxinfo |grep -i render
> IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 0
> direct rendering: Yes
> OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RS880 9710) 20090101 x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE2 TCL
Some 3D programs work, others are too slow.
Recently I got:
>Your system supports OpenGL version "1.2 Mesa 7.6.1..."
AFAICT my card should provide a much higher OpenGL version and the
radeon driver should cope.
Why this 1.2?
I tried looking around, but I tend to get completely lost in the maze
when I get to investigate the X.org driver and the ATI chipsets...
bye & Thanks
