NVidia GeForce4 440MX Drivers?


I searched google for the drivers but the only thing I got were the Windows version (yes I typed geforce4 440mx linux drives).

Is there a link to a site that has the drivers?

Distro: Mandrake 10

Nvidia's Linux Drivers. You'll most likely want the IA32 drivers. Download, exit X, run as root, and then edit your XF86Config.

There's documentation that comes with the drivers after you install them. Read that to learn how to configure it.

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li....0-5336/README

Go to this section:
(sec-03) EDITING YOUR XF86CONFIG FILE

Here's the driver download page, in case you haven't been there yet:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html

It's named: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

Probably the easiest way to get a base XF86Config is to run 'xfree86setup' as root.

Same file, but oh well. Since you're using Mandrake, you'll probably have to edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file though, because Mandrake gives you two Xfree versions.
