Support for NVIDIA GeForce4 MX?


Hi,
I just recently bought an eMachines T3092, which comes with NVIDIA hardware. I installed nForce drivers (network, sound, etc.) fine from the NVIDIA site, but I can't find a driver for the GeForce4 MX with GPU. I'm running Redhat 7.3 right now. Should I upgrade to 9.0 and there will be drivers there? Thanks for your help.

NVidia does provide a graphic driver for linux, its available to download from their site and supports all the geforce cards.

I'm using a modified kernel (openMOSIX). It asks for precompiled kernel headers, but it can't find any. What can I do?

You could download the source for your kernel and the driver can be compiled from that. Don't forget to set the XFConfig.
