Question How's 4191 driver?

How's the driver after a day? I saw a lot of posts having problems like 2D slow speed, etc.

Is it worth upgrading for Leadtek WinFast GeForce4 Ti 4200 (128 MB) in Red Hat Linux 7.2 (compiled Kernel v2.4.20)? I am still using the last driver before 4191 (don't remember the number). Currently, I just play Quake 3 Arena mods and RTCW. I am wondering if there are any improvements for my Athlon XP 2200+ system (ASUS A7V333; KT333 VIA).

Thank you in advance.

UT2003 was unplayable under last drivers for me, fps in some maps would drop to 10-15, now I don't go below 50 and in the 100's most of the time. With 4191 it plays as well under linux as in XP Pro / D3D now.

Default

well, I can't get the new drivers to work. The kernel module fails to load and no usable screens are found.

Yet, with the 3123 drivers I don't have any problems getting them installed and back at desktop.
