Oh, I know for sure I'm running XGL because I can run all the 3d effects
and glxinfo states ATI opengl graphics and, not that is relevant in some
ways, I have 6k fps in glxgears.
Yeah I would be interested to see a Nvidia card with SUSE 10.2.
Ati got bettet with the latest drivers, I think, because 6 months ago I
wasn't able to install the clx at all. But then again I'm no Linux guru.
