Thanks to all who offered advice. In the end, simply
using XF86_3DLabs worked for me (almost--but I'll get
to that in a minute). I had tried using XF_3DLabs
before, but I had made another mistake in my
configuration that prevented it from working the first
For the record, X_MODULE_01 = agpgart.o gave me a
failure (could not find module, or something like
that), but X_MODULE_01 = agpgart (no ".o" at the end)
loaded fine. It turns out, as Jim suggested, that I
didn't need to specify it anyway.
The only problem I've encountered so far with my setup
is that the playlist for xmms is unreadable. It
displays a bunch of "computer zeros" as I like to call
them. Does anybody know what could cause this?
