I would like to play minecraft on puppy linux 5.33. I have a geforce 8400gs. I already installed the nvidia driver and it is working. So how can I activate 3d acceleration?

So, no.

are entries in /var/log/Xorg.0.log i have .

Am running a Geforce 8400 GS 512MB Ram Pci-Express card since few days too , which seems not to like later kernels than 2.6.30.x or i have to boot with something different than vga=normal .

Will be the first time i have to compile the nvidia driver .. nv does not load , but vesa does .
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/

No kernel source handy for the moment .

NVIDIA suspended operations of the NVIDIA Forums (forums.nvidia.com) last week.

We did this in response to suspicious activity and immediately began an investigation. We apologize that our continuing investigation is taking this long. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure that secure operations can be restored.
