Question Problems With RedHat 9.0


Hi All !!

I like to keep up with the latest version of linux , so when Redhat 9.0 came out I downloaded it and installed it on my PC .

I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers and all look great ,
I am a keen games player and do like the odd game of wolfenstein , ( Under Linux ) . Here is where I ran into trouble ?

I find that the game runs very jerky and slow , It runs fine under Suse 8.1 , Mandrake 9.1 . Just seems to be Redhat 9.0 that I have this problem on ..

The Hardware of my PC is

AMD Athlon 1.8G
612Mb Ram
Gigabyte Motherboard
Nvidia G3 Ti 3000
Archive 4mm Dat Drive
Sony 52x cdrom

Thanks up front for any help ..

Malcolm

Have you set the correct VideoRam size in XF86Config?

Try this:
First get root privileges...
Then go into /etc/X11/XF86Config, look in the "Module" section, and remove these lines if they are still present:
Load "dri"

Load "GLcore"
