Default RH8, GF2 & hardware acceleration

Hi, pretty new to the Linux-3D business. Just installed RH8 and now I'm having slight troubles with getting my GeForce2 GTS card to use hardware acceleration. Now, I never bothered with this when I was still using RH7.2, but as far as I can tell RH8 came with a standard set of NVidia drivers - which seem to be running. Anyway, could anyone please be so kind and tell me if I have to install additional drivers to use my card's hardware acceleration (can't turn it on in X)?

If you want 3D support, you will need to install drivers, yes.


Go there, download the NVchooser, run it (sh NVchooser.sh), then read the README. A couple of times, if possible.

Then download the files that NVchooser told you to, and install them using the instructions in the REAME.
