It is assumed that you have completed the installation process.

FIELD_MESSAGE_getlipasalor

Verify with Linux tools

glxinfo

This command line option should report "direct" rendering.

$ glxinfo | grep direct

(For Debian 4.0, install the mesa-utils package to get glxinfo.)

Xorg.0.log

The X.org X server log file also contains useful information to verify installation was successful. It is located on most Linux distributions at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and can be opened by any text editor.


You can now move on to configuring the driver.
