    dri works with my G450

    unless you run X as root you’ll need these lines in your X config file

    somewhere after modules section

    Section “DRI”

    Group “dri”

    Mode 0660


    and then create group dri and add yourself in

    of course the group name is your choice

    overall a good article, but it should mention this since most people don’t run X as root

    I posted that I didn’t got my G450 to work with DRI. Now i did! I post this because I know from the official Matroxforum and some other people that there has been severall problems. Ok, the simple problem was my QDI Kinetiz 7B board with an VIA chipset. I simply upgraded the mainboard BIOS – and et voilla. It works! Before the Linux kernel loaded some VIA_IDE drivers, now it loads the VP_IDE driver. Dont’ ask.. and prepare to disable the build in modem via bios setup. If I do, it hangs after loading the VP_IDE drivers. Sounds wired, i know… ;-). But hey, finally it works. I catched the newest QDI bios from How many hours did i spent to fix this.. and again it was so simple… well.

    Ok, now i’ll go for a tuxracer game.
