    direct rendering: No

    If you are using Xgl, this will say "No". From the openSUSE Xgl docs:

    Xgl Link

    How can I check whether I have direct rendering on Xorg?
    Direct rendering is active if running glxinfo|grep direct on top of Xorg (not Xgl!) shows you "Yes". On top of Xgl this will always show you "No". Unfortunately, for Xorg having direct rendering is a synonym for having accelerated graphics, and it is more difficult to detect whether hardware acceleration is available than it is to detect direct rendering.

    With SUSE 10.3, you should already have the latest revision of Intel driver:

    Intel Drivers

    Note: If you have a 945 or older graphics controller, your distribution will already have the right drivers included.
