driver problem for tnt2
hi, i have an old tnt2 32mb agp video card for my linux machine. i recently tried to run the new drivers and when i run it, it says cant run in x-server mode. what exactly does that mean? does it mean i cant run in it in kde? if so what do i do? im running mandrake 9.1 and im a noob :)

Did You run the install under X ?

You must run 'telinit 3' as root to
shutdown X servier before install.

ok i did that and installed the drivers for my vid card. i read the readme and it said to put nvidia where it says nv in the config file. i did that. tried to run quake and it still says cant load opengl subsystem. any help would be very much appreciated.

edit: here is the error i get
------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: Broken pipe
Received signal 11, exiting...

This looks like a problem with your sound card/driver rather than with your video configuration.
