Slow Graphics in Fedora Core 1 -- help?
Hello :)
Finally, I actually completed the innstalation of the drivers.
Even after I've installed the drivers (hopyfully?), games like Tux Racer VERY slow.
I got a GF4 Ti4200 video card, so it should run smooth. :(
Is there a way to check if the drivers really are loaded. (Yes, the nVidia-logo pops up when X starts.)
Maybe I forgot something. If so, what could it be?
I would appreciate some help.

Click here to see my XF86Config
System Info:
Motherboard: MSI KT3 Ultra (kt333)
Video Card: Abit Siluro GF4 Ti4200
CPU: AMD XP2000+

Merry Christmas -
Xaero ;)

Ok, First, in your XF86Config file remove the following:-

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666

Remove all of it. Then in the (Section "device") add the following:-

Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"

And possibly to help the Video performance you can add the following line to your /etc/modules.conf file

options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1

Then restart X to make these changes active. If you booted into command mode (init 3) you can simply exit X. then type rmmod nvidia, to remove the nvidia module. Then restart X, which will reload it with the new settings. If you boot into Graphics Mode, simply reboot the system.

I did that now, and when I load Tux Racer now, X restarts...
I saw an error, can't remember when, the error was something like "cannot load glx" :rolleyes:

Hmm, I think I should uninstall all nVidia drivers and reinstall everything. Or simply reinstall Fedora :(
Why is it so hard to just install drivers? nVidia should make it easier so more ppl use Linux :p

How are you installing them? All I had to do was "sh NVIDIA...", make the modifications to my XF86Config per the readme and it was all good.

I downloaded kernel-src, then sh NVIDIA* and fixed some **** in XF86Config...

If you're getting errors like "cannot load glx, you missed something in the install. Uninstall the drivers and reinstall them. Make sure they're loading in X by su'ing to root and running lsmod. You should see nvidia loaded as a module. You should've also installed all the Mesa packages for your distribution. If you'll state the distro, we might be able to be more effective in helping. Also, the XFree86 log file from /var/log would be a lot of help.

Know what?
I'll reinstall Fedora. I've messed it up...
I don't even know how to remove ALL Nvidia drivers, help? ;)

nvidia-installer --uninstall, run it as root.
