But how can I check whether linux has recognized the card i.e. whther the card is used in linux ?
Enter the command "glxinfo" in a shell console and look for this line:
direct rendering: Yes
If you get a " No" there then it's not working correctly.
Do I have to change the configuration for "X" in the MandrakeControl center?
Yes, probably. I don't know how you do this from the Mandrake CC but the xserver configuration file (/etc/X11/XF86Config-4) needs some specific settings for the xserver to use your OpenGL hardware accelerator. I'm sure this forum already contains instructions for Mandrake users somewhere.
