How do I enable 3d acceleration?
 
I was using the onboard intel graphic and I was able to enable the 3d acceleration.
I receently got a Nividia Geforce and now I an unable to enable the acceleration. In fact the display is noticable slower?
I did the online update and got the nvidia drivers but that solved nothing

did you disable the onboard video card in the bios?

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 02:00 PM

Yes I did.

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 02:30 PM

Are there any other ideas?

Open YaST2. Go to hardware then to display settings. reconfigure display settings. Lastoption of configuration is to enable or dissble 3D. enable it, then test and save

When I go to ysast. I click on Hardware, then graphics card and moniter, then my screen goes black and resets, then I in a screen where my options are Text mode only or graphical desktop enviroment. (This is where I changed it with my onboard intel graphic)
At the moment though, it says 3d accleration diabled. When I click on change it thinks for a second then does nothing.
If I click reproble my moniter resets but I still have the same options

Thanks. You mentioned to edit. What would I edit? Also, do I just replace the new file over the old one?

SlackerLX 12-29-2004 03:36 PM

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 03:37 PM

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 03:40 PM

Look, I usualy make all changes using Midnight commander. Open terminal, first go to superuser by typing
#su
<pw>
#mc

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 03:41 PM

Which one would I edit? usr/x11r6/bin/ or etc/x11
