Question 3D Acceleration OpenGL


I've recently installed Mandrake 8.0. I have a nvidia riva tnt ultra video card. All the programs that use 3d accel. Don't work. Example Tuxracer and all other games won't open. Screensavers won't work either. Is there a way to see if it is working correctly or is there something I forgot, or need to install.
Thanks

You might want to have a look at opensource.nvidia.com they have some drivers you will prolly need to get it running, as well as documentation for how to install them

nvidia has pretty good linux support -
http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?PAGE=linux

the drivers you need to download are on this page... be sure to get the glx AND kernel drivers. you might have to play around with a few soft links to get the glx working, but the readme more or less explains that. i have nvidia on my box, and it works perfectly.
