Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-07-05 20:59:54 UTC
DRI is enabled by default on all hardware that supports it, including
the Radeon R200 chip family, which includes all models of Radeon
8500 and FireGL 8x00 hardware.

It is also important to note that DRI only works if you are running
3D applications on the same computer the X server is running on.  It
does not support running OpenGL applications over the network.

If you are running local OpenGL applications and not getting DRI,
please check your X server log and config file for clues of what
is failing.  Also ensure you are using the latest official Red Hat
kernel for Fedora Core 2, and that your system is updated to the
latest rpm packages.

If you are using official Fedora Core 2 packages and still having a
problem, your X server log file and config file should contain
warnings or errors indicating why DRI is not available.  You can
use these messages to troubleshoot your installation/configuration.

You may find the fedora-list@redhat.com mailing list helpful if
you require technical assistance in getting your installation
and configuration straightened out.  There are additional mailing
lists on sourceforge for the DRI project which you may find


Hope this helps.  Good luck.
