Default Red hat 9 RPM install (nforce chipset) RPM (-i says installed -q not installed???)

I am trying to install the RH 9 rpm installs and it doesn;t seem to be working properly.

I have ran RPM -i and it seems to do the install but when I -q the package it syas that it is not installed. try -ifv and says already installed???

The install RPM i am using is the 2.4-20_6 VERSION.


AMD Xp 2200
a7n266-vm motherboard
nforce onboard chipset
RH 9 kernel (shrike) 2.4.20-8 (defualt one)
256 meg ram
seagate barracude 40gig

After the rpm install what is meant to happen do I run xconfig again and there should be another listing ???? for the driver???

I am current;y using the nv driver but there is not 3d support???

RPM query works without the version numbers, whereas installing uses the numbers.
rpm -ivh <packagename>-<packageversion>.<arch>.rpm
rpm -q <packagename>

note the significant difference in what you send to rpm. You can also query all packages and grep out what you're looking for:
rpm -qa | grep NVIDIA

Are you installing the nForce chipset driver, or the video driver? Supply a link to the rpm you're using if you're not sure.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply..

Here is the link to the rpm that I am trying to install...

RPM binary install

i didn;t realise that there are separate drivers for nforce chipset and video drivers


I will try the video install, my goal is to get 3d acceleration.
