Default Mandrake 9 and GeForce 4 4400

Stock install display would only run as NV25 [GeForce4 Ti4400], Card:NVIDIA GeForce (fbdev). Would not run as generic GeForce 4 that works on Redhat 7.3. The XF86Config-4 file is much differant than the 2x cards

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "monitor1"
VendorName "Generic"
ModelName "1024x768 @ 70 Hz"
HorizSync 31.5-57.0
VertRefresh 50-70

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce (fbdev)"
Driver "fbdev"
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Downloaded and compiled the latest source RPMs. Will try them out and post the resalts.

Default Mandrake 9 and GeForce 4400

To be safe I changed the run level to 3, backed up the XF86Config-4 and changed the following

Section "Module"
# Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
# Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
# Load "extmod"
# Load "type1"
# Load "freetype"
#Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

Then I started X -OK (to test before I installed the nvidia rpms)

Then I installed the compiled rpms with -ivh
and changed

Section "Module"
# Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
# Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
# Load "extmod"
# Load "type1"
# Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce (fbdev)"
Driver "nvidia"
# Option "DPMS"
EndSection

loged out restarted X and changed to 1024x768 24 bit colour (only had 16 bit before) and all -OK

Source RPMs will work with any distro that supports rebuilding RPMs.

The nVidia drivers will work with any nVidia video card.
