3D Acceleration - NVIDIA


I was able to install the NVIDIA drivers appropriately. Does anyone know how to turn on the 3D Acceleration?? I'm using RedHat 9.0

you need to edit the xf86config file in /etc/X11

read the "README FILE" on how to do it.

There's a README that comes with the nvidia drivers which explains the installation procedure in detail. If you followed this and still had problems, try searching these forums for "nvidia", as there are probably 20 questions a day on this subject, and someone else may have already answered them for you

If you did install the nvidia drivers appropriately, then there's nothing else you need to do. 3D acceleration should already be enabled. If in doubt, go to a terminal window (from X) and type:


If they run nice and smooth, then there's nothing to worry about.
