Angry Video Card Problem


I have got an nVidia GeForce2 GTS in my computer. When I installed Mandrake Linux 9.1, it automatically detected I have got an nVidia GeForce2 DDR (Generic).

When I run any game or screensaver in 3D it is displayed really slowly, which makes me think there is no 3D acceleration enabled here. What should I do?

Thank you very much in advance.

you can grab the latest nvidia driver from www.nvidia.com - check out the link:

http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li..._ia32_1.0-4363

(assuming you have an x86 system of course)

get the driver and run it according to the instructions on that site.

I downloaded and installed the drivers. I also changed the configuration (as indicated) in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 . Nevertheless, when I restarted the X server, it was not able to restart... I had to restore the previous settings so that I could get the graphic interface again.

I substituted:
- on the Section Device
Driver "nvidia" instead "nv"

I made sure it had Load "glx" under the Module Section..

---------------------------
I kindn of managed to run it now... but the problem is this...
I turn on my PC, and the graphic interface is not loaded... it gives me the error I reported above. Nevertheless, I type "modprobe nvidia" and then the nvidia module is loaded and I am able to use it correctly...


EDIT[]: I just realized I posted this question in the wrong forum I'm very sorry for that :S
