I need help
Hi

Can someone help me?

I have installed mandrake 9.1, before few days I installed drivers for my graphic card
That is 1.0-4349 version of NVIDIA drivers

After installation install process was display me message:

Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86
(Version: 1.0-4349) is now complete. Please update your XF86Config file as
appropriate; see the file /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for details.

Problem is what I don't now how to configure XF86Config, I check and my xfree86 server 4.3 uses
XF86Config-4 config file.

Can someone configure to me this file, my XF86Config-4
is in attachment
and send to me on my mail semsudin@hostbih.com

I have
Mandrake 9.1 OS
geforce 2 mx/mx 400 graphic card
xfree86 4.3


Thanks

All you need to do is change the line
Code:
Driver "nv"
to read
Code:
Driver "nvidia"
and you should be all set.

To do this, you'll have to use a text editor of some sort. I think the easiest one to use is 'pico', but i'm sure everybody has their own opinion.

Also, a sample XF86Config file is installed to /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/ - you should just be able to copy this to /etc/X11 and create a symbolic link to it.

To do this, type (as root):
Code:
cd /etc/X11
cp /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/XF86Config.sample .
mv XF86Config-4 XF86Config-4.original
ln -s XF86Config.sample XF86Config-4
You should now have a working XF86Config file.
