  • 3D acceleration for 32b apps on 64b system (with R5xx and Mesa 3D)


    I want to ask how can I run 32bit OpenGL applications with full 3D acceleration (which Mesa 3D and opensource radeon driver provides for R5xx) in Debian GNU\Linux with amd64 architecture.

    Every native application (which was built from source - OpenArena, Nexuiz, etc... or which is freeware but has a native 64b version e.g. - Urban Terror) is working fine.

    But applications which don't have 64bit version (only 32bit but they are native linux apps) lack 3D acceleration. Exempli gratia Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory: first video sequence is good, but in menu - terrible motion with 1-5 fps.

    Please, is there any working solution for my problem?

    32b libraries installed in my 64b system.
