Default 3D Acceleration not enabled with NVIDIA's 1.0-3123 drivers

Hi all,

I've followed STEELs and NVIDIAs advice on installing the latest NVIDIA drivers for my RH8 box (KDE).

All went well and I'd like to thank both.

The problem is, I do not get any 3D acceleration (the "Display" tool in KDE won't allow me to click the "Enable Hardware 3D Acceleration").

I would be the happiest man on earth if you could point me to the right direction. I'm not a geek, in fact I've only been using linux for a couple of months, but thanks to some very helpful people, I am up and running with no serious problems.

As a note regarding the 3d acceleration issue, I am using the nvidia (and NOT the "nv") driver and I have canceled out the "Load dri" line at /etc/X11/XF86Config. I have also looked for any xf86config-4 file (caps sensitivity ignored, find -i) but no results were returned.

Thanks again,

Please type "glxinfo" in an xterm.

If it says _there_ that there's no direct rendering, then you have a problem. KDE's (I think you mean RedHat's) display tool widget is not a valid indicator of whether OpenGL acceleration is working or not. It's also not very complete - for instance, it does not handle dual monitor setups correctly.

Hey buddy,

Thanks for the prompt reply. I have included the glxinfo reply just below, so if you could give it a quick look and let me know if everything is ok I'd really apreciate it.

Thanks again!
