Since your running RH8.0, you should find the TuxRacer game in your extras/games menu.

Also as LordMorgul mentioned in his post. Check those and all should be ok.

Not on RedHat. That "display settings" GUI program doesn't have a clue how the nVidia drivers work, so it won't let you enable 3D acceleration using it (it doesn't know how to do it).

However, as posted by others, if glxgears gives decent frame rates, and if tuxracer is playable at all (you may not have it installed -- if not, the packages are on the RH CDs somewhere), then you have 3D working. The glxinfo test is a good one as well.

Also, Installed and run tuxrace game. It'
s working. Finally, I am sure I have installed vieo card properly and it works.
Just want to say THANKX A LOT to everybody who helped me !!!
I've successfully installed Oracle9i on RH 8.0 if somebody needs help ask me , I 'll tell you all I know.
Last thing,after I upgrated my kernel from 18-14 to 18-19 ,I stiil can see 18-14 when I start up. Do I need it or I can remove it? If not, how can I delete old kernel?

You don't need the old kernel anymore AFAIK, but I don't know how to remove it, either, so... yeah.

*shrug*

You don't really need to remove the old kernel. It's left there so that if the new one causes any problems, you still have the option to boot back to the old kernel. I usually leave one old kernel installed, and remove the others. (Just in case there is a problem with the new kernel)

Thanks !

But just in case , if I'll need to remove old kernel which a way do I have to use?
Is that rigt I can't see 'nvidia' driver in 'display settings' and 'color depth' is 24 bit, not more and name of the video card is the same -'nvidia geforce 4 (generic)?- my last questions, guys )

To remove the old kernel do the following:-

rpm -qa kernel

This will list all the kernels which are installed.

rpm -e kernel-2.4.x-xx (Which ever the old version you want to remove)

Surprising enough, the removal also removes it from the Grub boot list (Defaulf RH8.0 boot loader)

And that's it..
