    problem-opengl applications-xfree86 4.3 with sis 300/305


    hi
    i installed suse 9.1 recently .the kernel version is 2.6.4-52-default. i have got a sis 300/305 graphics card and XFree86 4.3.99 .When i ran glxgears it gave me the error :
    SIS driver : out of video memory
    Fatal errors in sis_dri.so

    glxinfo tells that DRI is enabled. when i run any application which uses opengl the computer simply freezes and i have to switch off the power supply-cannot go to text mode or do anything.

    can someone help me?
