No graphics acceleration in Classic?

On my Wallstreet Powerbook G3, graphics acceleration is disabled in Classic mode.  Is there anything I can do about this?

Hi
No. And also for two reasons:

1) Classic cannot support hardware acceleration because it cannot directly talk to the hardware. It uses OS X to talk to the hardware. Or at least this is how it was in earlier versions.

2) I do believe the PowerBook G3 Wallstreets are equipped with a pre-Rage Pro GPU and OS 10.1 supports down to the ATI Rage Pro but with no OpenGL drivers. And 10.0.0-10.0.4 support only down to the ATI Rage128.

Thanks for the info. My PB G3 has an ATI Rage LT Pro -- is this one not supported? I guess I'll need to get a Titanium... :)
