direct rendering
yesterday I realized that direct rendering (dri) is not working anymore on my xserver (checked as usual with glxinfo | grep -i direct). the solution was:
Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller"
        Driver        "intel"
        Option        "Cachelines"        "3582"
& the most interesting part: all this fuzzing around for dri or the modlines is not the xserver's fault, not the monitor's fault, not the graphic card's fault — but it's necessary because there's a KVM-switch between the monitor & the machine. if I plug the monitor directly into the machine's vga-port I don't even need an xorg.conf.
