Riva TNT2 Pro 32mb
 
Hello,

i am using currently the linuxdistro PClinuxos. i beleave it is a rpm based distro.

it uses currently the kernelversion 2.6.38.8 but i am using version 2.6.37.4

i have in my computer a Riva TNT2 Pro 32mb graphic card and would like to ask if this older card can still work with above mentioned kernelversions ?

someone has suggested this link. is this a correct one to use perhaps ?

regards,

Willem

It's the correct link.

However with such an underpowered hardware you can just you 'nouveau' open source driver.

hello,

thank you for the answer.

i have tried the 'nouveau' driver but for some reason after every 10-20 minutes my computer freezes completely.

perhaps the driver as suggested in the link above is a more stable one to use.

however since i am new to linux i have tried to install but i received the message that i have to close the Xserver to install

how can i exit the Xserver in linux ?

greetings,

Willem
