Hello, I am a fairly newbie user to Linux. As in fairly, I mean I've been using it the past week learning new commands and such. However, I have been trying to get the 3D Graphic Accelerator to work with Suse Linux 9.0 and have not had any success with it.
The computer system I have is:
Compaq Presario S6000Z AMD Athlon 2.16gig
256 meg RAM
128 ATI Radeon 9200 graphics card
And when I installed the software, it did not install the 3D Graphic Accelerator. If it is not possible to get it to work with my current specs, is it a big necessity to have? Well I still be able to use the latest software ok without it? What does the accelerator actually do?
I've done google searches for all this and have not found answers to.
One other problem: I've been trying to run files I've downloaded but have been having problems with them as well. The files download fine, but when I try this:
there is usually a problem with the first two commands, and the installation usually aborts. Are the files just bad or am I doing something wrong? I've also tried searching for links to help me with this problem but I'm still at a loss with this
Thanks for the help,
