Default Re: UNOFFICIAL HOWTO: Installing legacy drivers on FC5

Thanks, it works great!

I used make install also.

For those who don't know what to change in xorg.conf :

In Section "Module"

Put # in front of Load "dri"
Add Load "glx"

In Section "Device"
replace Driver "nv" for Driver "nvidia" (You might want to add a square in front of nv and add an other line in case it doesn't work.)

In case it doesn't work, reset the Driver to "nv", put a square in front of Load "glx" and remove the one of "dri".

Here are some parts of my xorg.conf :

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
## Disable if "nv" driver
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
## Disable if "nvidia" driver
# Load "dri"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
# Driver "nv"
VendorName "nVidia"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro]"
