ati and sax2


Hello,
im a total newbie but im learning quick,
i have been trying to configure 3d using suse 8.2 and ATI drivers from ATI site with my 9700pro
I followed the instructions and installed kernel source etc
configured xfree86

glinfo is good
ati control panel showing right info
3ddiag is configured
3Ddiag --dri is good
using right switch
gears is giving real good fps
direct rendering yes
no errors at all,
but... sax2 says 3d acceleration with this card is impossible

i think im missing something but being new to this i just dont know what

i know people are having problems configuring 3d with ati cards , but has anyone actually got it to work , if so how?

if it is not possible using suse which distro do you recommend me using to get 3d with 9700pro?

thanks in advance

paul

apologies for the post in members introduction im such a dimwit..........
