Default Problems with GeForce 2 GTS/Pro and Suse 10.3 / No 3D Support


i just tried to install openSUSE 10.3 on my old PC.

The graphiccard in this System is an old Leadtek GeForce 2 GTS/Pro Card.

So i installed the "71.86.01 (legacy) for Linux x86" Drivers according to the HowTo on the openSuse Wiki.

The installation of the driver seemed to have worked successfully, but if i start Sax with the parameters "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and go the "Change Config" interface, it shows an Error Message that the graphic card isn't able to do any 3D Acceleration and the checkbox to enable/disable 3D Acceleration is disabled.

Any suggestions what else i can do, to enable 3D and run Compiz?

Thanks a lot

You should ask SUSE how their software is making this determination.

Please note that if e.g. glxinfo works and reports direct rendering support via the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver, then SuSE's 3D support reporting is wrong; please also note that SuSE notes in their NVIDIA driver installation instructions that there's no need to 'enable 3D support'.
