Titel: How do I set up graphics accelerator?  BeitragVerfasst am: 31.03.2006, 16:22 Uhr

When I installed winxp/Kanotix on my computer I never bothered to install the software for my graphics card. I used to play games a while back but dont have time for that anymore. I still have the same card, which is some off-the-wall brand. It is a "Mad Dog" 64MB graphics adapter. So it functions now as a regular display adapter. I tried to install a linux program called "3ddesk". It complained my graphics acceleration was not configured. I am sure the card I have may not be compatible with Kanotix as far as drivers or whatnot. The card is about 4 or 5 years old. I do have an extra voodoo III that i could swap if needed. But that card is just as old if not older. My question is, can I somehow configure the card I have for 3d effects (open GL inWindows) in Kanotix? I can always buy a newer card if I have to. But The only reason I bought the card in the first place was to play Quake! And that was back in 2000 or 2001. w1av Geschockt

Depends on chipset of GrafikCard and not on BrandName.

Hi....I went into KinfoCenter and this is what it said about my graphics card....actually it said OpenGL;

Mesa Project www.mesa3d.org
mesa GLX indirect
1.3 mesa 4.0.4

If there is another way to find out the 'chipset' of my graphics card please advise.... Überrascht

Thank you Schnorrer, I will try that tonight when I get home. I am not sure I understand the rest of it though. I see that I type in "lspci" at Konsole. Then I should get results next on screen. I just dont understand this part:

result is vga comptiledevive:vendor type memory andand

So what is next step for configuring the card once I do "lspci"? I will post the results of "lspci" here tonite then go to the next step...thanks......w1av Geschockt

Do you have libgl1-mesa-dri installed? It contains a DRI driver for SIS graphics cards.
