Suse 9.1 pro

by Scott Swinyard / October 30, 2004 3:50 PM PDT

Has no 3d acceleration. Any body tell me what to get what I need, where to get it and how to install it? Seems that due to some licensing situation that suse no longer supports xfree.

Somebody once told me how to install drivers and such by some command line method, and then the OS took care of the whole process from there on, but I misplaced the text file I saved the information in.

As to 3D, its very dependant on what video card you have. You have to nail down the video card and then find the instructions for fetching that cards drivers and how to install.

I found the hardware database but no drivers at Suse (hehe everything turned to german), and ATI didn't have a driver for anything below the 8500 for linux.

And familiar somehow.

Also interesting is that the native support in Fedora Core 2 works great with this card.

I haven't moved to Suse 9.2 yet, so I can't tell if there is better support there. Why not stick with FC 2?

Fedora is very nice. I got the impression Suse was the best. They really are all similar but I can see why people react that way. Both Suse and Fedora are real works, but if I coud get Suse going I'd have the extra guis in there.

I found that too, but since you had an ATI card and I have none, I wondered if that was why you didn't see that. During Suse 8,9,9.1 installs it does show that checkbox... Always worth trying when you can just start over if it fails.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
