I just recently installed OpenSuse… I like Ubuntu alternatives. And every time I reformat my computer I immediately enable my graphics because when I’m not surfing the web I’m playing video games. I enjoy playing Open Arena and it has worked on every Linux OS perfectly. I recently bought Enemy Territory Quack Wars and tested it on Ubuntu and it had no flaws.
Then I immediately installed OpenSuse and then installed the games and I don’t know where to unable the graphics card. So every time I start the game up it lags on the default graphics card on the OS and I have to reboot to get out of the menus.
I have a ATI Rodeon. I don’t understand it should work.
Huh it says I have a ATI Rodeon 3100 Graphics card. So everything is right, then why is it lagging so bad in the games. Both Quack Wars and Open Arena worked flawlessly on Ubuntu. I still think my card isn’t working properly. I googled the crap for a answer and still have no answere to my question. I think I might try another OS.
make sure in yast under repositories you have the ati repository checked and installed this will allow you to get the driver you need and it will enable 3d support wich sounds like it is not working oncr you have the repository and run the update it should list the ati update automatically.
he is running the generic i guess you would call it of the ati driver that installs by default, this will give you 3d but like he experiences lag that is common cause he isnt running fglrx driver. heres the way i do it and has never failed and don’t enable the ati repo
Make sure your kernel source is installed, and dowload the ati drivers directly from ati and install them.
Run the installer, don’t choose custom, agree to everything.
Log out, and Switch to the first terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1)
