Re: [vox-tech] Xlib "RENDER" question...



Thanks Pete and Eric for your help!

Pete, at your suggestion, I searched for for the Xlib RENDER message 
and found references to the newsgroup comp.os.linux.x. In it, I found a 
very helpful reply to my question:

Just that the RENDER extension (does font anti-aliasing for one) is not 
supported for your card.  AFAIK it is otherwise harmless.
If you do "xdpyinfo |grep RENDER" it will return RENDER if your card 
can use this extension. (or is supported to do so.

all the best,

============================

Looks like it's not just a KDE problem. I ran the xdpyinfo command and 
there is no RENDER string which comes up. Looks like it's just my 
crappy video card. :)

Thanks again!
