I am having a world of trouble getting my old GeForce2 MX400 to work in a fresh install of Fedora 10.
I included the RPMFusion directories, so my yum repolist includes:
rpmfusion-free RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free enabled : 324
rpmfusion-free-updat RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free - Update enabled : 0
But when I type yum list | grep nvidia, nothing comes up. When I type yum install kmod-nvidia or yum install akmod-nvidia, it says there's no package like this.
Have these been updated for Fedora V10 yet? If they haven't, I guess I will just have to use another distro.
BTW, when I tried installing the driver from the NVIDIA website, it says it needs to recompile the Kernel, and after installing gcc and make, it still gave some weird error about how with kernel 2.6 it can't find the proper kernel headers or something like that. The Kernel is where the edge of my Linux knowledge lies :S
But, I heard somebody post that you shouldn't use the NVIDIA drivers, they mess up OpenGL, you should you Livna kmod-nvidia. That's why I was trying to do this.
So, 2 questions:
1) Would you recommend livna kmod-nvidia or Nvidia's own driver's for a GeForce2 MX400 and Fed 10?
2) Whichever you recommend, could you give some clue how to get around either problem I'm having?
Thanks a million in advance!
