Unhappy 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.

THX

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

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.
