Greets to all...
(Hunting around the net, I came across this site among others, and it's helped me considerably. THANKYOU).
jeeez. I've just spent nearly 12 straight hours on this (I have no life today!). 1am, and I get it right. Finally. ... ok, 3 hours of that was getting annoyed with KDE and shifting to Gnome
I don't mean to hijack this thread
just thought I'd add a few points and confirm a few things:
One thing another site pointed out was using VNchooser.sh. The link has likely been offered in these forums as well. This little script prompted me to download RPM's that are now a few versions old (2313), for i386. Is the script outdated or something ?
I had been downloading 3123 for i386, and I was getting the unable to unable to insert NVdriver msg, and the symbolic link errors when I tried the source RPM. The full compile option via make also failed.
Anyway, I eventually got it happening with the i686 version of build 3123 (kernel), after reading DC12k's entry here.
I didn't use the source RPM's either. If I'm feeling adventurous later I might.
The kicker was that I had written down the kernel version and platform shown at the login
anyways. I hope all this proves useful for someone else. my next mission is to get tv-out happening, then sound.
Info: RedHat 7.3 i686 (kernel 2.4.18-3). Geforce256, Live!DE 5.1, Intel mobo.
don't know if it will work or not with the i686 version of GLX. I can't remember if it's even available.
