Rain effects In XGL on SuSE 10.1 don't work


I'm new to linux, and I installed SuSE 10.1 with Xgl, everything in Xgl works fine except for the rain and water effects. I have the latest NVIDIA drivers.

My graphics card 7900GTX is not supported by Xgl but 3D acceleration and Desktop effects are enabled.

I noticed that other people had trouble with this, but I couldn't find an answer.

If somebody could help my, that would be great

Does using the current version, aka 10.2, fix the problem?

Well Caeda, I'm using SuSE 10.2 and still don't have the water effect. It's a problem with the GeForce 7xxx series. I have a 7600 GT and a 5900XT but my friend have the 5900 for now. If you can try another way so you can post it later.

Good luck.
