Yes I tried it. It installs, i edited my XF86Config file, but my system runs super slow. I even tried changing the NvAGP options(0,1,2 and not to forget 3), but my machine shows no signs of life at all. When i uninstalled the driver,edited my XF86Config, my system runs like its fed on steroids. I want to install the new device driver properly but iam unable to do so.

SOMEBODY(make that ANYBODY) PLEASE HELP ME.

I read APPENDIX H: TNT SPECIFIC ISSUES, which states that there is the rare chance, however, that the video card has the wrong
BIOS installed, and that this driver will continue to fail.

Is the poor performance of my machine related to this issue???

Only solution to this problem is to re-compile the device driver. GCC version 2.91.66 is required to compile it but my system is pre-installed with GCC version 3.2.

Is there a way to compile the device driver with version 3.2.
