I have blender installed and all of its dependencies. Under other distros, blender has worked fine. Now, it will not start up. My video card is an All-In-Wonder 7500.
You probably need a working 3D accelerator driver. But ATI has dropped support for a lot of old cards and since your card is 2002 vintage I doubt it is supported anymore. I doubt that any distro with a newer kernel is going to run since the older drivers if you can find one won’t work with the newer kernels.
8 years is a good run for a video card. Maybe time for a change??
Now, it will not start up.
Any symptoms, error messages or the like?
