Red face OpenGL not enabling SuSE Linux 9 Pro

I am unable to change the OpenGL setting in SaX2 to enabled, even though I have changed the driver in XF86Config from "nv" to "nvidia". I have managed to get it to do it before but have since forgotten.

My understanding of this os is intermediate to advance(although I cannot program yet, except menus in Xenix )


Cheers

Sam

You dont do it in sax2, you do
Code:
sax2 -m 0=nvidia
like the SuSE readme says.

You dont need to touch your config file.

I am doing that, it still throws up the error. Any other solutions?

If you are loading the nvidia driver then graphics acceleration is already there regardless of whether or not you can click the icon in sax...I'm guessing thats what you are referring to...
