3d acceleration?


How can I get my 3d car dto use the 3d acceleration in X? I remember playing a games called Chromium when I had mandrake installed, and it ran great, but now with Slack it hardly runs at all. Any ideas?

Thanks

Depending on your video card, you will either have to install Mesa OpenGL drivers or if you have a Nvidia, their binary drivers. Then it should run fine.
