Hello Again

Got this from:

Worked on the test machine I was workin on with no problems

5. rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4496.src.rpm
6. rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4496.src.rpm
7. rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4496.i386.rpm
8. rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4496.i386.rpm

Section 2

1. Edit /etc/X11/XF86config in your favorite editor.
2. In a section which will look something like this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"

Change the driver line to say Driver "nvidia" instead of Driver "nv".

You should now be able to run X with the nvidia driver installed.
