Description of Problem:

Hi, I tried to upgrade from red hat 6.2 to 7.3 and found that games like
                                       >Chromium run slowly.  Presumably this is
because the graphics card is not
                                       >properly installed.  I have a ATI Tech
Enhanced Rage Mobility P AGP Ver
                                       >10.0 128 M Ram 8 M SG Ram card, and the
card work fined with Redhat
                                       >6.2.  Could you help?  The ATI website
and XFree86 sites don't help.

                                       Dell Inspiron 7500 Laptop. 15+ in
monitor.  Pentium III 500 Mhertz.

Problem is that you did not enable DRI in your XFree86 Config. Please read the
 files in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc/.
