XFree 4.0 and the Great Battle

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Linux, PC Software | Posted on 28-10-2000

For the past few weeks I have been trying to get my VooDoo 3 working again in Linux. I hate having anything (especially hardware) that doesn’t work. 3DFX has released an XFree 4.0 server along with new modules and Glide. After converting the RPM’s listed on their site over to deb packages I was able to get X4.0 up and running and even start Quake III. QIII is running really slow, which means that something to do with the libraries isn’t loaded correctly. Why won’t it just all work!
