Unichrome and OpenSuse 11.2

http://forums.opensuse.org – Before OpenSuse 11.2 I used some Debian-based distros that used to have a good support for my integrated video card Via Unichrome P4M800 Pro / CN700. I had 3D running with direct rendering by Mesa. With OpenSuse I'm having problems to configure my graphics with a good configuration... I installed the unichrome driver and ran Sax2. It set up my video driver to "unichrome", but I gad no direct rendering and the renderer string is still "software rasterizer". I tried installing the chrome9 driver, but when I ran Sax2 it frozen, and I couldn't start X anymore, so I uninstalled. How can I get "Direct Rendering: yes" on OpenSuse 11.2 with this video card? Is there any good via driver that would give me 3D rendering? (On Ubuntu 9.04 and Linux Mint 7 the automatic xorg configuration used to set "via" as video driver, and I had 3D) Thanks for the help.
