Hello every body,
i am new user of openSuse, and i have a problem with my graphic driver, for exemple when i want run sketchup, i have a message “Sketchup can’t initialise OpenGl, Check your graphics driver”
i’ve a emachines e525 and my graphic card is a intel
thank you for your help
ps : if my graphic drivers is not upgrade i think the other are not upgrade, so if you can help me for other drivers, i am happy
Given the link you provided indicates your pc has an Intel® GMA 4500M, I suspect that means you are running openSUSE-11.2 ??? (as I do not think 11.1 will run well, nor possibly run on that graphic hardware).
What graphic driver are you using? Your choice is a bit limited with Intel.
sorry, i am beginner, i use suse 11.2 and i do not have graphics drivers, i have
rpm-qa ‘* driver ':
and for rpm-qa ’ Mena *’ , i do not have anything

May I add my welcome to the openSUSE fora.
The experts here are very knowledgeable, but please be aware that Linux was
developed to be a free equivalent of Unix. As such, it has many utilities that
were mature before the people at Xerox invented Ethernet, the mouse, and the
point-and-click graphical user interface. These utilities/commands are very
powerful, but for many of them, there is no push to write a GUI frontend. When
you request help, many of the helpers will ask you to run one or more such
commands. When you do them, please be very careful to enter them exactly as they
were presented. You must not add spaces where the posting did not have them, nor
leave any out. In addition, you will sometimes be asked to precede the command
with sudo, so that it will be executed as root. In that case, be extra careful.
There was recently a posting where a user was following a damaging script from
somewhere on the web, and deleted ALL his files. You certainly would not want
to make an unfortunate typo that damaged your system.
Well that suggests to me that the xorg is loading the “intel” graphic driver. The “intel” driver is normally contained within the rpm “xorg-x11-driver-video”.
I am not familiar with the program sketchup … a quick surf suggested this is a Mac/Windows program. Is there a Linux version, or are you trying to run this under wine ?
Have you enabled special desktop effects on your desktop yet? Are you using KDE or Gnome ?
There is a driver update for Mesa, Mesa-32bit, xorg-x11-driver-video, xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd and xorg-x11-driver-input that you could install and try to see if it makes this better, but I would initially be suspicious wrt sketchup, as opposed to focussing on the graphic driver. In post #11 of this openSUSE practical theory guide, I provided a top level indication as to how this update could be done: openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums - post#11
