As the others already stated, it's a problem of your specific video
drivers. The RENDER extension has to be implemented
for each driver seperately, so there's a bunch of cards that support it
already and some don't. I got around it during spring
to use the XFree CVS for my savage and SuSE usually updates the drivers
with new releases of the same XFree package in rpm's even between
releases of XFree. So updating to 4.1.0 may help you to get Antialiased
fonts working on your driver already (It's really worth it :))

If you wish to participate especially on the python bindings/python
programming in gideon, please subscribe to kdevelop-devel and get the
CVS sources from HEAD which contains this version. You may also be
interested in helping to support emacs and vi as an editor component :)
Just speak up on that list if you wish to help with code. That counts
for all the others as well :))
