VMware Workstation "Incompatible Graphics Card"


Hi, I have SUSE Linux 10.1 and VMware Worksation 5.5.2 build-29772 with Windows XP Pro + SP2 and I Installed Rise of Nations (Micro$oft real-time strategy game) on it. When I run it, it goes through the ad videos at the beginning but as soon as it finishes that, an error pops up saying Graphics services failed to initialise. Please make sure your video card and drivers are correctly installed, and are compatible with Rise of Nations. I have also tried it with Rise and Fall (non-micro$oft) and it said something like your graphics card is incompatible. I use Gnome and have XGL 3D Desktop enabled but I have tried it with and without this.

Thanks for any help.

right, so what graphics adapter are you trying to use? have you installed the vmware tools?

this is nothing at all to do with Linux btw...

Right, sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong forum. Anyway, yes I have installed VMware tools, but I don't know what you mean by hardware adapter (not that hardware literate, sorry).

well windows device manager and the vmware workstation will both tell you what grpahics card is being emulated. are these apps not after opengl or directx extensions? wouldn't have thought vmware could do that anyway.
