No worries, part of the rpm's installation renames to offending files... just make sure you install the kernel rpm and make the changes in the /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 file and you should be good to go.

I have made the modifications as well but it never starts GL. Whenever I go to play Heavy gear 2 it craps out right before the mission then in the shell prompt is says

something about libglx here (will edit and put in complete error at home)
Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

What changes did you make to the XFConfig-4 file? And do /sbin/lsmod and see if the NVDriver module is loaded

I went through and did what the readme said to change. I knwo one was nv to nvidia
load "glx"
and removeed 2 forgot names but they were in readme file


I have recently reloaded and I think I have it but I need to edit the XFconfig-4 fiel but I cannot startx to do it how would I config with out X?

From the command line, you can edit with vi or vim. First
cd /etc/X11
then su to become root.
Finally
vim XF86Config-4
to enter the editor. The most intuitive way to use vim is to enter the "insert" mode. To do this, just type i. Now use the up, down, left, right arrows to put the cursor where you want it. You can use delete or backspace and any character you type will be inserted. To leave insert mode, just pres the Esc key. To save the file (you must not be in insert mode) type
:wq
which is write quit. If you mess up and want to start over, type
:q!
which will quit the edit w/o saving.

Once you are done and you want to proof read the edit, I like to use
less XF86Config-4
which will give you one terminal screen at a time view of the file. Use page up and page down to move up and down one screen. To leave less, just type q.

Good luck!

Awesome I was trying to use VI and emacs but I could not figure out how to save and stuff. Now I do and I will get to modifying my config right now thanx

Linux Rules. I got it all configured now. Thanx for the awesome step by step there on vim. It saves me from a reload.
