Default trouble enabling 3d

Im having trouble enabling 3d. Im running SuSE 8.0. I'm a linux newbie so go easy on me. Ive got a GeForce 3 Ti 200. Ive installed the nvidia GLX and kernel drivers and ran the online update. I ran Sax2 when prompted to enable 3d support i said yes. after that i try to run a 3d program and it still isnt enabled. I did it through Yast2 and it still wont let me enable 3d. I am running the nvidia driver not the nv. and i cant figure this out. Any help would be apreciated. thanks,

try running one of your screensavers in the terminal. Tell me what message you get.

Apparently, the SAX2 and Yast2 will let you enable the 3d acceleration only in the 16 bpp mode. I had similar problems and the only solution was to enable 3d manualy in 24 bpp mode.

Be careful with the online updating stuffs.

I've seen various reports from people here and on transgaming.com forums saying that after they run such, X is configured back to some type of default mandrake config.

You'll prolly wanna keep your rpms handy, and a copy of a good XF86Config-4, or at least know what to change.
