7900 gs no 3d accelaration
Update: My bad: I relied on the wrong tools, gnome-xgl-settings and glxgears. Turned out, manually setting Xgl as X-server worked without hitch...
OK, I tried the whole day to get my new 7900gs based card working with Linux (vanilla SuSE 10.1 for x64). It works flawlessly in Winxp; the 6600gt based card I had before also worked well within SuSE.
The problem is that I can't activate 3D accel: glxgears is slow and gnome-xgl-settings says I need to activate 3D. glxinfo says direct rendering is activated, the nvidia module is loaded, and I don't see any errors in in Xorg.0.log (no EE marked lines). I have tried NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8776-pkg2.run and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9629-pkg2.run without luck.
Interesting sections from xorg.conf:
BoardName "GeForce 7900 GS"
It was created by sax. I have attached the nvidia bug report. Any ideas?
