Ok installed Cassandra on my Dell E1505 but need some help

Postby jediphx » Mon Jul 09, 2007 12:51 am

Im using the ATI accelerated driver that I apt-getted in order to install. How can I get 3d acceleration running on here and also I want my desktop at 1280x800 which is the default but the highes choice i have is 1024x768

glxgears is only giving me 135fps. Help

I just noticed that even after getting envy to install the ATI driver my xorg.conf still says generic video card and i verified that direct rendering is not enabled

I'm glad you got it working :)
This has to do with which driver you are using and possibly some settings in xorg.conf
ATI cards are hard to configure and get working well.
Post your xorg.conf so we'll have a look at it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
