Hmmm .....

Just a browse through .....

Acer 5050: if the googling results is accurate then you have a Turion x2 (MK36/TL50) processor with ATI Express X1100 vga .... I believe, two drivers can be used for this ... xorg's or ati fglrx/catalyst which can be found here ....

Using xorg's driver, then you'll probably just need to plonk in the xorg_dri_7.3 pet and no messing around required ... the ati driver may need some fiddling ...

I would look around at different puplets. there are several that play games nicely and many game pkgs available in the eye candy section. if you like old games, try puppy arcade. it has a ton of emulators to run old SNES games and such.

DRI comes with xorg or is added afterwards. you will have to enable it in any puppy yourself, using the steps above.
