    This is the place to start
    Beryl - openSUSE

    I should say that Beryl is now replaced by Compiz Fusion.
    You better wait a few days and install opensuse 11 where 3D is enabled by a single click...

    I have the same system, running openSUSE 10.3.

    To get 3D acceleration, I had to enable the proper modules, which were not loaded.
    $sudo modprobe agpgart
    $sudo modprobe intel_agp
    $sudo modprobe drm
    $sudo modprobe i915
    Then I created symlinks for all of the GL libraries from /usr/lib to /usr/X11R6/lib.

    $sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libGL* /usr/X11R6/lib
    Finally, I made sure that the glx and dri drivers were set to be loaded in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

    Section "Module"
      Load         "glx"
      Load         "dri"
    Finally, I reloaded X, and did a glxinfo/glxgears:

    $glxinfo| grep direct
    direct rendering: Yes
    7164 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1432.699 FPS
    7688 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1536.983 FPS
    Even for onboard, this video is a little laggy.. but it was about 400FPS w/o DRI.

    Good luck!
    Pretend that I did something really geeky like posting my computer specs here.
