Default Direct Rendering

I have installed the 4496 driver for my Nvidia GeForce2.

I used a SuSE (8.2) Auto Updater, as was hoping to have direct rendering and 3D acceleration support.

I have run glxinfo and been told direct render is off.

As no readme files were given with the install I don't know what to edit to get direct rendering working.

I have downloaded the driver from Nvidia and was told I had the driver already installed (unfortunately the download didn't include a README either).

All the files seem to be in place I think it just a step not done right in installation.

Remoavl of core or something?

Can anyone help?

I have done more research and found out what I think the problem is.

The nvidia driver is installed on the machine (but not fully).

/usr/lib/libGL.so ->

now this should be pointing to a an NVidia driver, this driver appear to be AWOL on the system.

SuSE autoinstalled the driver and left this driver out.

I've downloaded the latest .run driver from NVidia and used the selft extract feature, but I can't find the driiver file in the distribution.

Anyone with any further ideas?
