    Exclamation 3D acceleration..

    I have OpenSuse 11 along with windows vista and xp... I know my video card has 3d acceleration but i can't enable it.....
    I ran 3D diag and it showed no compatible hardware found... ALso when i went thru YAST the 3d accelereation check box is disabled.... Pls help.
    As per dxdiag in vista my card is a VIA/S3G Unichrome Pro IGP... with 64 MB memory....
    Yeah i have a 50:50 exp with linux. SO pls explain what to do....

    this is a link to lots of good info for folks new to openSUSE -WELCOME-

    http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9

    ALL of that thread is good for you, but solving your 3D setup begins
    along about post #5 where you learn which repos to enable, how to get
    the 'restricted formats' to allow stuff to work...

    3D requires the propriatary drivers to match your graphics
    card...learn if you have a nVidia or ATI care and then see one:
    http://en.opensuse.org/ATI

    NOTE: both pages give an "Easy Way" and a "Hard Way"...i don't who
    decided which was which, but i know if you do the "easy way" and later
    update your kernel (for security, when required) then you have to do
    the 'easy way' again, AFTER your system blows up...

    but, if you take your time and do it the "hard way" then the next time
    it will automatically renew when you upgrade your kernel..

    you decide....which is what Linux is all about..

    welcome.

    thanx for the quick reply...
    Well for one mine is neither an NVIDIA or an ATI graphics card. It uses via Chipset. I dunno where to find the proprietary driver of my card.

    Please post contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    That one is the configuration file for the Xorg display server.

    See the line missing in yours? It's needed to have effects working. AFAICS the rest looks OK.
