    Suse 8.0 Questions/problems

    hey everyone im new to this forum but hopefully you can help me

    my problem is that i just installed 8.0 and i cant get my 3d video to work properly nor my modem (which is not bieng
    detected) everytime i try to configure my 3D it either doesn take or it crashes and does responed, ive used suse7.3 prior and it worked fine aswell as mandrake and redhat with great 3d support but i cant figure it out. my laptop is a Compaq 1800T XL4 the video is ATI Mobility M3 X2 ive tried sax2 and when i try to use that the settings dont take ive also tried Yast2 and still nothing i have used the the 3Ddiag command and it tells me that the package xf86_glx is not installed and needs to be installed in order to get 3d support but when i install the package and try to run sax2 again the screen gets all garbled up and locks up then if i try to restart x it gives me errors saying that the xserver cannot be started. the only thing from there is having to reinstall.

    Hmmm, I have never installed Suse. I don't anything about it's configuration tools. johnq uses Suse he might be able to help you out next time he is on the board.

    Welcome to GLO!
    Well,I know little about laptops but you have been to Yast2 and still could not get your modem configured? In modem configuration is it listed at all, say under "already configured devices" as "unknown modem". If so,try connecting it to different ports and see if that helps.I've had to edit the device list in "modem parameters" as my port was not listed(ttyS4)to get my modem to work and you may have the same prob.Hope this helps you out a bit.
