Multisampling on Radeon 9700?

The new ATI drivers export the GL_ARB_multisample extension, but I haven’t been able to find a multisample-capable visual. The driver only seems to support 24 bit screens anyway, 15 and 16 bit didn’t work for me.

Neither have I been able to find an envvar to enable it globally.

So does anybody have an idea how to use multisampling on this card?

My understanding is that this is not supported yet in the linux drivers, but soon would be. It is reported in the RENDERER extensions string because it is has common code base with the windows driver (and that’s a good thing in itself), but if you look carefully, you’ll see that multisampling is NOT in the GLX extensions string.
