S3 Supersavage drivers on opensuse 10.3


Hello.
I have a opensuse OS on a IBM T23. Whenever i startup a opengl/3d game, it runs at a low 2fps for games. on kubuntu, it will be 20fps for games (great graphics). on opensuse, i run glxgears:
941 frames in 5.0 seconds = 188.116 FPS
955 frames in 5.0 seconds = 190.761 FPS
953 frames in 5.0 seconds = 190.491 FPS
944 frames in 5.0 seconds = 188.632 FPS
952 frames in 5.0 seconds = 190.234 FPS
XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
after 10480 requests (37 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

on kubuntu, i would have ~600FPS for glxgears.
The question is, how do you enable the 3d accelerated graphics for opensuse? please dont tell me to switch back to kubuntu. The company that i work for (gaming industry) requires opensuse. Please help!

Do you use a proprietary driver, open source driver or a generic one ?

For example, on opensuse you can use the "nv" driver as generic driver for nvidia video cards, therefore, if you want to use 3D and openGL, you need to install and use the proprietary "nvidia" driver.

what's defined in the "/etc/X11/xorg" in section "Device". See the example below :

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "GeForce 6600"
EndSection

I switched to OpenSuse 11.1

Hi,
Somehow, it still doesent work. When i run the game gl-117 it was at 2FPS. It should be 15FPS. I remember i got it working on 10.3 by enabling DRI. How can i enable it on suse 11.1?
