3D Game crashes


I have kde4.1 running on OpenSuse 11.1. My Laptop is a Lenovo thinkpad R61e with a Intel graphics chip...G65m

Most 3D games will crash immediately on loading...and freeze the computer so it requires a hard restart, or will do the same about one minute into the game.

Can anybody help me?

are these native games, or ones you're trying to run through WINE? Do you know if you're using an open source, or proprietary gfx driver?

Check if you are running the intel driver.
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep autoconfigured

See if Direct Rendering is working
glxinfo | grep direct
