Oh, I can see you are using ATI binary driver. I've been using XORG's
free 'radeon' driver, as the ATI one doesn't give me the 3D
acceleration on my X700, despite of no errors or relevant warnings in
the XORG log and the fact, that direct rendering *is* turned on - while
the free 'radeon' does provide a pretty decent 3D accel. Thus using ATI
binary driver is not an option for me, even if that helped with OpenEV.
