    Virtual Machine Ubuntu

    Ok, so I am using Ubuntu 8.04, virtualized on my Mac via VMWare.

    However, I cannot seem to play any games or enable any desktop 3D effects... I would simply say I am lacking a driver, because people have told me it works. However, I am not sure where to find my 8600M GT video card driver or how to install it.

    Anybody know what to do in this situation? I haven't had much luck with Ubuntu so far, and I really want to learn. But, I am getting a bit intimidated by it.

    EDIT: Yike, didn't realize this was only for PPC. You may delete this thread, I will post elsewhere.

    It isn't only for PPC...

    Fusion (or any other VM) does not support 3d acceleration except in windows.
