http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I made a kernel module package for opensuse 11.2, kernel 2.6.31-12 (latest update at time of writing). It supports opengl (glxgears has 2000 frames in 5 s), 2D is faster than by using vesa only. But compiz/kwin effects dont work. Open Arena works but is not as fast as under windows xp. I think its a xorg.conf issue. Any help appreciated. http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...3-8.1.i586.rpm http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...3-8.1.i586.rpm The second package enables opengl acceleration.
