Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently installed Suse Linux Entreprise Desktop 10
I have a Matrox G550 graphic card and I have downloaded the appropriate drivers from support.matrox.com
I have tried to install the drivers as per the readme file.
I ran the 'sh install.sh'.
However, the 3d accelerations and visual effects still do no work.
I would appreciate any help in walking me through the installation process for the drivers so as to enable the 3d accelerations and visual effects.
Regarding 7-8, I don't have the X11 subdirectory in /etc/.
Also, if I go to 'Desktop Effects' settings in the Control Center, I see the following warning:
"Your graphics card is not in Xgl's database"
"Xgl is enabled, but might not perform well with this card."
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
First I can't guarantee that this actually works, everything I've read on the card says 3d acceleration is not available on the PCIe cards. That link is the only one I've found that says it's possible. That said, where is your X11 directory?
