      Unfortunately, I don't. I have it loaded and I have used it by following strict instructions but that was a long time ago and I have long since forgotten what I did. I've been looking for concise instructions but haven't found them yet.

        I find the information from the second link a bit confusing. Use what's on the first one for drm and the 3D drivers and what's on the second for the ddx. Good luck.

          Yeah and if things work right and vsync is on, glxgears fps should equal your monitor refresh rate with a reasonable accuracy.
