I am running Wings 3d on Debian Sarge (Gnome 2.8.3) with the 2.6.8 kernel. My video card is a ATI Radeon 9200 with 128 MB of DDR ram.
Using the default display drivers, I have the following problems:
- Vertices are not displayed at all
- Edges are not highlighted when selected.
Faces are displayed in both states and Wings 3d is quite fast using the default drivers.
I have downloaded and successfully installed ATI’s Linux drivers for my card. However the performance drops off significantly.
My questions are:
What do I need to do to get the vertices to show, and edges to highlight using the default display driver?
If my first question is not possible, what can I do to improve the performance of my card using the ATI Linux drivers?
If it helps, I also run Blender 2.37 and with the default drivers, everything works as it should and Blender is fast. When I use the ATI Linux drivers, it suffers a considerable slowdown just as Wings 3D.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have also asked for help in the official Wings 3d Development forum.
