Ok i just installed Fedora Core 3 because i want to port my Windows GL app over to linux.
Anyway i got a 9800 pro and i installed all the drivers from ati for it. If i type fglrxinfo and glxinfo from the command line they both report the OpenGL vendor is ATI. So i run tuxracer at 1280x1024 and it run's just fine so it appears the ATI driver is installed and working correctly. Ok now to my problem, i open up Kdevelop and make just a test program using SDL to create the GL window for me, this works just fine but when i run glGetString and get the renderer and version it is reporting the MESA driver ??? and obviouslly the app runs pretty slow.
Any ideas anyone??
