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,
Mandrake Linux release 8.1 (Vitamin) for i586
Kernel 2.4.16   XFree86 4.1.0   KDE: 2.2.1    KNode: 0.6.1

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!
