Default 7950GT woes...

Hello, I'm very new to Linux and have recently installed Suse 10.2 x64 edition with no problems. My main reason for using Suse was to run the Folding@Home SMP client (which is working very well).

Anyways, I have searched the Forum for similar problems to mine, but as yet have not been able to find an answer, so sorry in advance if this is a really daft question! I've installed the Nvidia beta drivers for my card (build 7942) and my 2D stuff appears to be working fine. i.e no jerky windows and full 1680x1050 res for my monitor. Nvidia X-Server setting also appear to be ok.

This is the output from glxinfo :-

The problem im having is that Desktop Effects still don't work sad.gif When i run the desktop effects utility it says 'nvidia corporation Unknown device 0295' Your card is not in Xgl's database

3d Acceleration Disabled
Desktop Effects Disabled

It also says the following :-

Your graphics card is not known to be supported by Xgl, and it is not currently configured for 3D acceleration. Xgl cannot be enabled. However, if 3D acceleration can be enabled on this card, then it might be possible to run Xgl.

You might be able to fix this using the SaX2 configuration tool. Press the button below if you'd like to try running SaX2.



Sorry for the long winded post, but i just don't know enough about Linux to do anymore on my own.

My system spec :-

Dfi Lanparty SLI-D socket 939 n-force 4
Opteron 170
2Gb G-skill DDR


Thanks in advance,

Rich.
