Nvidia Riva TNT2 with 7184 driver on Mandriva 2007
Well, the 7184 driver on Mandriva Linux 2007 didn't work for me. I managed to get it compiled for my kernel -- 2.6.17-5mdv -- and successfully installed it. I changed the 3D capabilities and was able to start up compiz to use the default settings.
When the driver started up, it seemed fine. Whenever I opened up a window and then closed it, the background would have a small square with the same text and/or color of the previous window. Whenever I would log out, the screen would have a slow-moving rolling display while the logout menu would appear.
After uninstalling the 7184 driver and editing xorg.conf, X would hang whenever I would run startx either as root or any other user. I had to reinstall my Linux 2007 from scratch in order to get the nv driver installed.
Any ideas about the background/foreground problems mentioned above?
