Default OpenGL & Direct Rendering for ATI

Hi,

For ATI cards, is it possible to have direct rendering with OpenGL under
the open source drivers?

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

$ glxinfo
-bash: glxinfo: command not found

Thanks

Generally, yes, although it depends on the card and what versions
of the kernel, X, and Mesa you are using. Newer cards need newer
versions, and the 5000 series isn't supported at all yet.

glxinfo is provided by the mesa-utils package. Installing mesa-utils should
probably pull in all need mesa/dri packages
