What is wrong with XGL?


I have SuSE 10.1 and I must say, I am very impressed so far. Everything seems to "just work", unlike some other distros I have tried. Anyway I have installed compiz and all the needed packages for XGL, and I have installed the nvidia drivers (using a 7800GT). I am using Gnome. When I go to the desktop effects settings, it says my video card is supported but 3d acceleration is not enabled. I don't get why it would say that, I successfully installed the nvidia drivers, and I checked in my xorg.conf and made sure it was using the driver "nvidia". It is.

Anyway the desktop effects settings told me to download nvidia-gfx-kmp-smp and x11-video-nvidia from:
http://151.155.195.11/pub/suse/updates/

But of course that is a dead link. Can anybody help me?

Oh, one other thing, how do I get my mousewheel working? I have a Razer Copperhead.

For the mouse, post your mouse section of /etc/xorg.conf. I'm sure I could help you out.

It's a 7 button mouse, right? Maybe the wheel buttons are "6 7". Try that and specifying Buttons 7.

Try it. It might work. I don't have one of these mice, but I think that's what you should do. Sorry I can't help with the XGL, though.

Ok, I got XGL working, it is sweet!! Now, how would I specify 7 buttons? And if 4 5 was for a 3 button mouse, shouldnt you use 8 9 for a 7 button mouse?

It's a X server on top of an X server so what is wrong with it? I'd have said the entire implementation but hey, that's just me.

Try and see if my article about mouse configuration helps.

Oh wow your article is kind of confusing. I don't get why all that would need to be done; the mouse works just fine in other distros, like mepis.

Could I just copy the mouse section from mepis and put it in suse?

OK, I have a question. How do I look at the xorg.conf file of mepis off of the live CD, because it seems everything is in an image file.

Now, I am having two problems with SuSE. First, when I shut down the system, it freezes at the part where it says shutting down sound system. How do I fix that? Second, the panel (start menu) keeps defaulting to the top of the screen whenever I log in. I can set it to the bottom, but if I log out and then back in it goes back to the top. I don't get why it's doing that, but it's annoying. How can I fix that?

I'm having the same problem with my nVidia Gforce 6200, it says my video card is supported but 3d acceleration is not enabled.
How did you fix it??

Thanks

according to the gentoo wiki the 6200 works but no dri in xgl, the 7800gt should have dri though, start up a normal x server (startx -- :1) and type in glxinfo and see what that has to say about dri
