Lost 3d Support


I tried an ATI-provided driver for my graphics card. Worked, but with screwy gamma values on my primary display. In other words, useless. That said, I removed it, and managed to get myself back on the original driver that SUSE 10 provided.

Here's the problem:

I lost 3d support somewhere along the way. "No 3d graphics card is available or 3d support is not configured yet."

I don't have a clue how to fix it. It worked before I installed that useless driver, and during, but not after I removed it.

Anyone?

Which driver is X actually using?

at the moment just generic ATI, also tried generic radeon...

The generic radeon is what SUSE was using when I started (I think).

I'm missing a crucial step here somewhere.

Try using the radeon driver again, and make sure that you
have
Code:
 Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
 EndSection
in xorg.conf somewhere ...

Well, back on the radeon driver... tried above and even managed to enable S-Video out... but still can't seem to get 3d support.

Well, I'd find out and tell you... but I gave up and installed SUSE again from scratch. No big deal. Only been running it for a week, so it's not like I had too much stuff to recover. In fact, I have nearly everything done already except installing an unrestricted copy of xine and updating quanta.

3d acceleration working again and I know how to set up TV-Out. Goals achieved.

Thanks for the help anyhow.
