Video drivers for KN133

Found a very old laptop (Acer aspire 1300) and decided to get it working again so I choice opensuse as the linux distro to install on it. Everything seems to work really considering the low specs of the laptop. The only thing I am having trouble is enabling 3d support for the graphics chip (Via ProSavage kn133, which I believe is a savage4). Looking on the ubuntu website I see that it supports both 2d and 3d, infact I believe it can even play quake 3 etc. However I cant seem to get an opengl or 3d rendering to work. Any ideas?

Welcome sebbo90. I don’t have experience with this graphics chipset, and I don’t know your level of expertise, so to get started we need to know which graphics driver is in use. These commands can help with that:

/sbin/lspci -nnk
/usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard

as well as trawling through /var/log/Xorg.0.log to find out which driver gets loaded etc

This could be as simple as loading the ‘savage’ driver by editing (as root) /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf so that it looks like this

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Default Device"

  #Driver "radeon"
Driver "savage"
  ## Required magic for radeon/radeonhd drivers; output name
  ## (here: "DVI-0") can be figured out via 'xrandr -q'
  #Option "monitor-DVI-0" "Default Monitor"
