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 03:00 PM

Yes I did.

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 03:30 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

send me your email address. I recently used Suse and by pure chance saved XF86Config with 3D enabled
just edit it because i use ATI

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 04:14 PM

I don't know how so here it is



JackieBrown 12-29-2004 04:34 PM

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 04:36 PM

i sent you XF86Config file. Please remember to edit it. Don't ask me how to, I've never used NVIDIA before:confused: . Just post if you made it working

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 04:37 PM

Do I just copy the video part ard replace Driver to Nvidia and vender name with what? (it says ati right now)

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 04:40 PM

Oh just read your next post. Ok, thanks. will try it now

SlackerLX 12-29-2004 04:41 PM

Look, I usualy make all changes using Midnight commander. Open terminal, first go to superuser by typing

JackieBrown 12-29-2004 04:41 PM

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

SlackerLX 12-29-2004 04:44 PM

your current configuration is at /etc/X11
