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?
