Fedora Core 1 NVDriver install bug
I'm writing this from memory, as I'm on vacation, and this step seems skipped by most of the tutorials on installing NVidia drivers on Fedora 1:
I got the 4496 drivers installed properly on Fedora Core 1, and the GUI worked just fine... However, Quake3 produced terrible textures... This is a known about problem with Quake3, and has to do with the use of MesaGL on top of the NVidia drivers. The problem has to do with a second copy of libGL.so.1.2 that sits in /usr/X11R6/lib/tls - this file must be removed and the symlink replaced with one that points to the correct libGL.so.1.0.4496.
