Default Nvidia/Mesa Library Problem


Complete linux newbie. Trying to get my Nvidia Geforce 3 Ti 200 working. Installed the drivers from the Nvidia site. That killed off X, I mananged to get that back. But 3D acceleration is slow as, about 25 fps on kmorph screensaver. I think that the problem is links to mesa linbraries. Help says that I should remove the mesa libraries, my question. How do I remove these libraries?

open a root console and type in:
rpm -qa | grep mesa --ignore-case
You'll get all installed packages containing the character string "mesa". Remove all of them except any instance of "GLU" and "GLUT" by use of:
rpm -e <package name> [--nodeps]
There shall be additional ways to manage your software depending on your linux distribution. In case you want to remove the libraries only without touching the rpm's data base "rpm -ql <package name> may help.

Good speed!

ps: "man rpm" may help too! :-)
