Question 3D Hardware Support not available


I'm on SUSE 10.1 and I got a nVidia GeForce Go 7300 256mb.

Whenever I try to open a 3D game, a popup tells me that 3D hardware support is not available.

"No 3D graphics card available or 3D support is not configured yet. However, the application uses or requires 3D hardware support."

I've looked on a lot of FAQ and forums and couldn't find anything.

Do I have to activate something or download any drivers?

Have a look at . There have a linux driver availible which is quite easy to install.
You'll need to have kernel-headers and kernel-source installed to install the driver. If you haven't, you should be able to install those with yast.
