Please be more specific about your problems. One can only guess what is
going wrong with your setup. Here are a couple of hints:
1. Have you installed ALL the necessary drivers and how (RPM, tarball)?
(You write that you have tried downloading the drivers. Have you also
tried to install them according to the provided instructions? :-) Just a
2. Did you receive any error messages during the process? If yes, what
were they exactly (copy and paste into your next posting)?
3. Have you made the necessary changes to your XF86Config (append it to
your next posting if you don't know what I am talking about)?
4. If your answers were 'Yes' to 1 and 3 and 'No' to 2, what leads you to
believe that you don't have hardware 3D accelaration? Is it the greyed out
checkbox in the GUI configuration tool? If yes, you can safely ignore it
and try running a 3D application like tuxracer and check whether it's
playable or not.
I hope this helps (a little),
