    Hello,
    I have a problem with 3D graphics acceleration after I install antix on my hard disk, for example glxgears shows a black window only, while it works in the live session if I boot from DVD.

    The output of inxi -Fxz -r is the following:

    Hmmm. Does glxgears ran in terminal say anything else?

    harry@biker:~
    $ glxgears
    Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
    approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
    314 frames in 5.0 seconds = 62.607 FPS
    301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.010 FPS
    301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.007 FPS
    

    That is just my readout with the linux kernel supplied intel i915 driver and I see you have the proprietary amd driver.

    Edit. My bad. radeon is the open source driver

    glxgears doesn’t give any output if I run it, but it gives (albeit very clunky) if I run vblank_mode=0 glxgears, see the attached screenshot

    In case anyone is interested,
    glxgears works if using lxde as desktop environment. Nothing else was changed.
