Cant enable OpenGL on SuSE 8.2 w/ Geforce 4 Ti 4600


Hello, I did search and couldnt find a situation like this. I've installed the nvidia kernel and glx driver and the latest driver. .they all seemed to install fine but I cant enable the 3D settings in Sax2. It tells me that i must use the commercial driver from nvidia which I have installed. .. I've also made sure my xfree86 config file is correct. I've tried using the nvidia-installer utility and doing it manuelly and yes I did exit X when I did this. I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

Please post your XFree logs (from /var/log/XFree86.0.logs file - if your log is long, remove the parts about mouse and so on if you're able to locate them).

DOUBLE Check....

I seem to remember that SuSE say 3D may work but appear to not be enabled..... Have you updated your distro lately with Yast...there have been fixes for this I think. Just try playing a game.

i had the same problem

I have 8.2 pro with a geforce FX 5200
Try downloading the driver from SuSE's update thingy, rather than going to nvidia.com and doing it.
It fixed mine.

This is my XF86Config file. I just recently reinstalled SuSE so I have done all the online updates and I was able to play Unreal Tournement 2003 just fine, but now it hard crashes my system evertime i try to load it. And I get really low frame rates in tux racer and I have a pretty decent system. At one point I had all of this working fine, playing UT with maxed out settings. .and Sax said OpenGL was enabled. .

Maybe my hardware is just dying its a p4 1.3. My graphics card could be failing or something, i've read alot on this and cant seem to fix it. And a few months ago i could play ut2003 with maxed out graphical settings.
