GeForce 256 and fedora core 4
 
I tried to install newest NVIDIA drivers for linux in order to activate 3D features but the installer says that this GPU is no longer supported and refers to a 'special legacy NVIDIA GPU driver release'.:(

Anyone knows how to install 3D features for oldest NVIDIA cards (geForce 256) on newest linux distributions ?

Thanks

You need to use the 1.0-7174 legacy driver.

Thanks,

If 1.0-7174 is failing, please post the installer log that captures its failure.

I'd also suggest applying these patches first:

Re: GeForce 256 and fedora core 4
 
According to your log, 1.0-7174 is installed. Why do you think that it is not?

well, the point is when i did SAX -m 0:nvidia it is not working... and the logo of NVIDIA dont see.
The problem is sax -m 0:nvidia i think than the driver is not correct.

Yes....

I solved the problem by disabling SELinux... when installing the driver... then

step 1 : 'setenforce 0'
step 2 : 'sh NVIDIAxxxx.sh'
step 3 : 'setenforce 1'

Now it works....
