Default Re: Trouble installing Mandrake 10 on 6800GT

Uh, you need to download and run the nvidia graphics driver package from nvidia.com to get hardware accel with your graphics card. Also, if you are using kernel 2.6, you will need to patch the installer package before you run it. There was a post somewhere in this forum giving all the instructions on how to do it. All I can remember is that the patch is on minion.de.

Also, you need to prepare the kernel source before you even try to run the nvidia package. There is a faq on prepping your kernel source at
http://www.speculation.org/garrick/faqs.htm

Good luck

p.s. just use the vesa for now so that at least you can run x.
