Midnight commander is a clone of the old norton system commander, its a console based file manager/browser/editor, you'll need to edit your XF86Config-4 after installing the nvidia drivers, all the info on what to change is in the README file available on the nvidia linux download page.

What is your System Configuration (hardware I mean)

I have a PIII 800 MHz with 128RAM and it doesn't seem to work properly on my system. I also have a Diamod StealthIII video card... will this be anough to play UT2003??? or it needs something like OpenGL and that sort of unsupported-by-my-card things (all I need to use my favorite games is always 'unsupported by my damned card'

P3 1000/100 on a Dell BX based mobo
512 Megs PC133 SDRAM
GeForce 3 Ti 500
SB Live
3com 3c905TX

Thats my linux Rig

I am hoping that is enough.

If I REALLY want to enjoy it, I will play it on my win98 gaming machine:

P4 2.4 Gig
Asus P4T-E mobo
512 Megs Rambus
GeForce 4 4400 128 Megs DDR
SB Live
3com 3c990

The only reason I am playing this on linux is to learn the OS... my Solaris class is just not cutting it

It is trying to teach me how to be an admin but, I am not even a good USER yet!

I am hoping I can learn alot about unix/linux by playing games with it... that is how I learned DOS and Windows...

I think your vid card might be to old... I think I read somewhere that only the GeForce line of cards are supported right now but, I could be wrong... as I often am these days concerning unix/linux...

Indeed. Not even on windows It worked for Quake. so I'm not hoping too much. I have a geforce2... I think I might replace my stealth with that Geforce and on my main computer (PIV 2.0 GHz) put a geforce4 fx. Anyway, I was also thinkig that then I'd be wasting a good card. So... why not buying a whole new computer, my PIV2.0 GHZ is becoming old, fast! I was reading this the other day, but couldn't understand very well, perhaps you could calrify this to me. This is the url: http://www.intel.com/home/desktop/pe...d=ihc+home_ht&

Anyway... I don't think it would work at full capacity with my old crappy windows98. I think that on a linux I'll just have to recompile the kernel for that processor.

I discussed this with my Solaris instructor. Basically, the best example that he explained to me is easy to understand if you have ever burned a CD-R on a windows pc. During the burn operation, that pc is so tied up in performing the burn operation that, even though the OS supports multitasking, the PC is worthless because the CPU is too busy running the burning software to do anything else.

He said with this CPU and a version of Windows 2000/XP that is patched to take advantage of HT, this will not be a problem anymore.

I anxiously awaiting a new flight sim... http://www.lo-mac.com that will take advantage of HT so I do plan on picking this new chip up.

Yes, So I've read, but since it would be actually multi-tasking it is just like my old Pentium Pro 200MHz motherboard with dual CPU. I mean, is like a dual-cpu integrated in one... but wose because it would split the process time between two.

Ok, anyway I'll have to download a HT patch for windows or recompile the kernel for *nix. In any case It would be the same installing Windows 2000 Server on a Dual CPU box.

OK. It's like this
First of all make sure that you are usinf kernel 4.x.x, or NVidia drivers will not work. Then get from www.nvidia.com drivers. You will need the kernel module and the module for X (something with GLX). You'll find it. Extract them from the archives and first go to the directory with kernel module sources. Type
make
make install
Then do the same with the GLX driver.
Now you have to modify the /etc/X11/XF86Config. If it doesn't exist, you must add a line in section "Module"

Load "glx"

And you'll have to change in section "Device" line with Driver:

Driver "nvidia"

Then restart the X-server and your Unreal should work properly.

Hi folks !

Coming back on the nVidia drivers "issue".

As frustrated_noob uses RH8.0 I suggest him to give a try to the complete nVidia installation procedure for RH8.0 I detailed here :

Have fun !

You should be able to just update the rpm files while stilll in X:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

Then just restart the X server (reboot, Ctrl+Alt+Bksp, etc.)
