Description tuxracer 2012-07-26 20:04:46 UTC
Had want to install my old Voodoo3/2000 PCI that 2 or 3 years ago perfectly work. Now on actual xorg-server at least 1.10 1.11 1.12 I really unable to configure a working 3D. If i use the driver without any xorg.conf I can use at least Software-Rendering. But if i create a xorg.conf using Xorg -configure it gives no 3D. On old xorg-servers the only thing i had to do for 3D on this card was to set the resolution to 1024x768 at 16bit colordepth and it worked.

xorg-server is not responsible for 3D acceleration, mesa is. Xorg.0.log and the output of LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo might give some hints what is wrong. My guess is that your version of mesa no longer ships the dri1 parts which are needed for 3dfx cards.

yes but Xorg -configure is the part of xorg that should create a working configfile and without it is better than nothing, and if i use the file createt by Xorg -configure the last rest of 3D also is gone And it doesn't

Hi, Freedesktop's Bugzilla instance is EOLed and open bugs are about to be migrated to http://gitlab.freedesktop.org. To avoid migrating out of date bugs, I am now closing all the bugs that did not see any activity in the past year. If the issue is still happening, please create a new bug in the relevant project at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm (use misc by default). Sorry about the noise!
