What type of video card do you have? For nvidia type cards (riva, tnt, tnt2, gforce) the standard linux driver has no GLX support. Nvidia makes a driver that works much better for open gl(3D apps) and xv(video apps).

There are also accelerated drivers for ATI and S3...

Ok,
As you said ... there is no optimized driver from ATI for this card....

However, here is a good driver that should work for radeon 7000:
http://dri.sourceforge.net/

DRI is included with the standard XFree86 install ... look in your XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) file in /etc/X11 directory. Make sure there is a load dri in the modules section and that the driver is radeon in the video card section. If that doesn't do it ... then look into the link above.
