    Nvidia 3d acceleration


    I can't get the 3d acceleration to work. I have alreay used the Yast Online Update to install the nvidia driver for my Nvidia GeforceFX 5700 LE, and it didn't work; I tried rebooting too.

    When you're booting prior to the SuSE green screen, do you see a white screen with the nVidia logo on it?

    No, I see a black screen with a non graphical Nvidia logo and copyright, then I see ram details for my card. It's the first thing I see on my computer, it loads before I am even asked for my BIOS password.

    Have you run SaX2 and tried to configure your video card and monitor?

    It says they already are configured, but it still won't let me do the 3d acceleration.
