Geforce4 in Suse 7.3
I want to try and understand why I can't find my GeForce4 440 MX card in Sax2.
1. My card is not detected
2. The list of Nvidia cards listed stops at Geforce3-3.
I have downloaded the 1.0-2960 linux graphics glx and the suse73 kernel drivers.
I read and followed the instructions as best I could (noobie here).
I chose to select the driver for Geforce3 and for my trouble I have better resolution (1024x768), but it could be better.
So can someone help me out with pointers or a clue what to do. I know with windows and Nvidia often earlier driver versions work better than others.
I don't use SuSE myself but I know that even the newest XFree (4.20) only supports up to GeForce 3
So Sax which somehow reads these datas somehow only shows you a GeForce 3 as well.
What you want to do is to simply select the GeForce 3 and go on
When you are done configuring, save the config file and open it in a text editor.
Search for a line saying
in the "Device" section
Simply replace the nv with nvidia
If you installed the two nvidia packages correctly it should work out
You still have to remove a few line that might still be in the XFree Config but that is described in the documentation of the packages (/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README)
That sould work
