    kinfo center reports im using a driver from VMware???? odd

    however a dmesg | grep drm gives me:

    [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810

    and looking for agp info within dmesg gives me

    Linux agpgart interface v0.103


    Before I upgraded to xorg 7.7 and kernel 3.14 it was reporting something about i915 still didn't have openGL

    looking at kinfo i feel like i may have took 2 steps back rather then forward.

    anybody able to help?

    I also noticed intel has the 1.0.4 linux drivers available but only for buntu and fedora systems I really like opensuse thus far so i don't want to switch distros just to get opengl working

    Hi
    Rather than dmesg, use (as root user) journalctl
    Code:
    journalctl -xb --no-pager |grep drm

    Doesn't glxinfo provide the info?

     glxinfo |grep OpenGL

    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.3
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

    And finally use some additional options with lspci
    Code:
     /sbin/lspci -nnk |grep VGA -A3

    Hey thanks for the reply I apologize for my poor posting behavior.

    using the additional commands i got the following results.

    journalctl -xb --no-pager |grep drm gives me

    Code:
    May 06 15:02:14 linux-51hh kernel: [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
    glxinfo reports not found

    /sbin/lspci -nnk |grep VGA -A3 results in:

    Hi
    Even with a later kernel and Xorg, would have expected the same sort of information. You haven't added a nomedset option in the kernel boot parameters.

    What about the intel drivers, xf86-video-intel package, is this installed?

    xf86-video-intel reports highest possible when i run zypper install xf86-video-intel

    as for the nomodeset i had to during install just to get a working display.

    Hi
    Ahh interesting, well that's probably the reason why no OpenGL, so what happens if you remove it and reboot the system?

    I'm sensing that I'm making a dangerous assumption.

    when you say nomodeset is that the same as disabling KMS during install?

    Hi
    Correct, so your telling the system not to use it.

    that being the case allow me to remove nomodeset from the boot options and see what we get.

    We are golden! I type from a fully accelerated KDE. and with an updated xorg and the 3.14 kernel.

    looks like the nomodeset removal was the key!

    I thank you very very much for the assistance!

    now for the educational part....why?
