I just bought a new motherboard with a VIA KM400 integrated chip. I downloaded and installed the VIA driver.

Now, when I try to run chromium or tuxracer in a user account, there doesn't seem to be any hardware accelleration. When I run the same programs as root, they work fine. It seems like the display driver and hardware accelleration should not be user-specific, and I don't know where to look to find the problem.

Any help?
