MDK 9 has no 3D acceleration!


I have a Geforce 2 MX 64 Meg video card on my machine, and MDK doesn't detect it as such. It detects it as a 64 meg DDR card. Now I've experimented with using the DDR drivers, and without the drivers, still the same thing.


Would I go to Nvidia and download their drivers?

ever read the title of a post and knew the answer before the question..?

linux distros can't distrubte the nvivdia drivers as they are not GPL software. so yes, you will need to download it. and please follow the docs. people seem to have a lot of problems with them, which just nomrally stem from not bothereing to read the docs, or dismissing them as too confusing

I'm not too sure what you mean...I'm reading the book, but the Documentation Install package locks up during DrakX.
