3D acceleration

I’m running SUSE 12.1 with KDE 4.7.2 and I need some help getting 3D acceleration setup. I have a GeForce 8600 GT and I’m running the NVIDIA 295.49 drivers and when I try to run playonlinux or Neverwinter Nights 2 it says I don’t have 3D acceleration enabled.


I would open up a terminal session and give us the output from this command:

glxinfo | grep direct

I get this output:

direct rendering: Yes
    GL_ARB_draw_indirect, GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex, 
    GL_EXT_Cg_shader, GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access, 

You might want to check WineHQ: WineHQ - Run Windows applications on Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X

For the latest nVIDIA driver, up to 295.59

Thank You,

This is a know problem with NWN2 and wine…

I got the 259.59 drivers installed and this is what I got from running “glxinfo | grep direct” both before and after updating the drivers.

direct rendering: Yes
GL_EXT_Cg_shader, GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access,

I’ve got everything setup the way WineHQ tells me to for NWN2 except direct 3D. I’ve used playonlinux and played NWN2 using Wine and in Windows using all the same hardware I have now in the past so I know it works on this PC, I’m just missing something.
