I was haveing the same problem, tried the rpms, then the tar file but I wasn't being able to load the NVdriver module ,then i got the kernel updates from redhat (2.4.18-10) then did the rpms and edited my XF86config-4 file, then everything worked. but dvd playback is still laggy as hell , anyone know any tweaks that could help?

my system:

p-3 1000 mhz
256m RAM
Asus Geforce 2 gts deluxe- 32 meg ddr
Asus CUSL2 motherboard (815chipset)
RedHat 7.3
SB live soundcard

using ogle for dvd playback at 1024x768

i would think i should be able to watch dvd's a little smoother, or is the dvd support in ,linux that bad?
any info much appreciated

I meant to ask this in last post but forgot:

are you certain that the kernel module is loading? check with /sbin/lsmod

if not try loading manually with modprobe, if it gives you an error than those kernel updates should fix it.

Try to enable DMA on the DVD, it is disabled by default in RedHat

x534n 09-23-02 02:12 PM

You were right, dma was turned off on my cd rom, i enabled it with hdparm, and the dvd playback has improved dramaticly, it's actually watchable now :) very much apreciated!

how u configure ur XFree86?
sorry i am still having the problem configuring my Linux 7.3 running on Geforce 2 MX..
i have update my kernel to 2.4.18-10 (kernel-2.4.18-10.i686)
and use NVIDIA (NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.rh73up_2.4.18_10.i686) and NVIDIA (NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386) file..
but it still cannot detect my AGP card y?

can you kindly show me how u configure ur "XF86config-4" file?
maybe somethg might have gone wrong there..

The process for configuring XF86Config-4 is documented in nVidia's README file...

If you can't understand what they've written, post your config file here and I'll see what I can find.

Also, you might as well post /var/log/XFree86.0.log while you're at it.

i have try the step in the README Nvidia provided.. but still cannot startx..

this is wat i get from the "XFree86.0.log" file.. i put it under the attachment..

How about posting your config file? It appears you're attempting to load like 3 million drivers, and the first one (some ATI something) is complaining that your card isn't an ATI card -- well duh it isn't -- and X is bailing because of that.

invman 10-14-02 03:56 PM

here is some of the file hope it might help..
