Unhappy Nvidia 5336, RH 9.0 and kernel 2.4 something

just installed the new nvidia drivers, jus tinstalled RD9.0 4 days ago.

The splash screen of nvidia comes up. followed the directions and all for the installation with changing "nv" to "nvivia" and all.

But my only choices are still g4mx generic drivers. no 3d acceleration.

What am I doing wrong.

I am a complete newbie to this....

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are getting the Nvidia splash screen, then the drivers appear to be installed correctly.
If I were in your shoes, I would be checking my XFree86.conf file.

For 3D, you need to load the glx module.
I suggest you re-read the README one more time, (fully this time).

How are you trying to find the drivers?
Are you trying to do this from the GUI?
There is not a choice; the README indicates that you have to remove "nv" from the device section and place "nvidia" in its place.
You would have to identify the device in the device section section of your XFree86.conf file.

Why don't you attach a copy of your XFree86.conf file,...
and maybe a copy of your lof file as well.

I use the Display program to check the drivers.
also i did a search for XFree86.conf no such file on my drive.
but i did find a XF86Config file.


anyway i can run quake arena demo, but would like it to say the right driver.

but thanks all anyway

Well, it appears as though you are doing everything from the GUI. Are you using Gnome or KDE?
It won't reveal the "right" driver; it just uses it.

And my bad on the name of the file; YES, it is the XF86Config file that needs to be edited.
It is in /etc/X11.
