SUSE 8.0 and OpenGL support?? HELP!!!!
Hi all,

I installed everything as described in the Nvidia driver Installation manual for Linux (The lil' Step by Step by Nvidia). Now I wonna play a game like Racer but always when i wonna run racer there appears a message which says: 3D Hardware support not avaiable. No 3D Grafic board or 3D not configured. This application needs 3D Hardware support.
I alreday tried 3Ddiag and everything seems fine (no warnings, no errors, nvidia_glx activated). Im using a AMD Athlon XP 1900+, 256 DDR ram, GForce 3 TI 200. X settings are 1024x768 color depth 16, H=55Khz V=68hz, SUSE 8.0 and Im running the Window Manager WindowMaker (I tried KDE too but wont work too).

It would be really nice if someone could help me.

Did you turn on 3d acceleration?

Of course did I switch on the 3D accelaration. I switched it in 3Ddiag, SAX2 and in YAST2 on.

What kernel are you using and what video drivers are you using.

Amidamaru 12-28-02 02:15 PM

Im using the Suse 8.0 Kernel (version 2.4 gb or something like that)... before i installed the packages i used the driver nv but now im using the driver nvidia.

Mandarb1 12-28-02 04:47 PM

No what driver version (ie 3123, 4170, etc)...

Amidamaru 12-28-02 06:20 PM

hmmm... sorry... im still a newbie at unix systems, so could you please tell me how i can find the kernel version in SuSE?

Have you tried Continue?

I get that message too.

I used to have the 3123s installed and I never got that message, but after I updated via YOU to the 41s, I get the message you speak of. But If I hit continue, the app runs just fine.

btw, the stock kernel for Suse 8.0 is 2.4.18-4GB.

hmm... i quit SuSE now and Install FreeBSD. So thx for your help everyone, I just hope it works good in FreeBSD.
