I have download the latest version on the site.

But when I launch it I have the message where It don't detect 3D.

$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
GL_ARB_draw_buffers_blend, GL_ARB_draw_indirect,
GL_EXT_Cg_shader, GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access


I also re-merge mesa and mesa-progs

What is my mistake ?
Thanks in advance for your advices

I am having the same issue as you spy20 its giving me the same warning no 3D is enabled

dward@edsbox:~$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
GL_EXT_Cg_shader, GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access,

glxgears is running at a good frame rate as shown below so not sure whats up with play on linux saying no 3D. Any suggestions as to what next to check ? anyone !

edward@edsbox:~$ glxgears
12327 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2465.370 FPS
12235 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2446.977 FPS
12634 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2526.656 FPS
12730 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2545.897 FPS
12797 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2559.047 FPS
12729 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2545.507 FPS

Well, it's just a bug. glxinfo write two lines instead of one, so POL thinks 3D is not available.

Just ignore this message, it will not change anything. Anyway we're going to fix the problem in PlayOnLinux 4

Thank You Tinou,
I went forward with my game install and yes you were right all works well so for other getting same message if you know for a fact your 3D is working just ignore warning message as Tinou says and just plow through with your game install it should just work fine
