It works, but am I hurting anything?
 
I'm a newbie to Linux, but not afraid to dig around and learn. I installed Mandrake 10 on my system yesterday but was not able to get the X server up and running. After hunting around on this forum I found a problem similar to mine and modified a line in the XF86Config-4 file. Now it works, but I have no idea what I've actually done.
Here's the line I added to my XF86Config-4 file under the Device section
Option "NvAGP" "1"
When I test a new screen resolution (using the GUI in Mandrake) I get the following:
Quote:

An error ocurred:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***ABORTING***

Try to change some parameters
Is this damaging anything?

Thanks in advance,
Ken
