Ok, I have the tdfx module that comes with XFree4, I have dri support in the
kernel, I have the glide3 rpms installed along with the Mesa rpms.

When I try to run test3dfx

[root@monkey grosa]# /usr/local/glide/bin/test3Dfx 
Clear screen to blue
Resolution: 640x480
Press A Key To Begin Test.
video memory unprotecting
                         Segmentation fault (core dumped)

it tries to do something to my screen, and then it dies.
Everything else defaults to software rendering.

I then rebuilt mesa and made sure that it compiled with Glide support.
No change.

What am I missing here?


ps. why is this so difficult? I was under the impression that the voodoo
boards were well supported...
