Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tired to use this feature with a Matrox Mystique 4mb PCI card to no avail. I am assuming this only applies to AGP cards being that agpart must be compiled in the Kernel? Or this little 4mb PCI card just doesnt have 3d acceleration.
I ran sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run. I recieved
"No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)?
I said yes. Then recieved
"No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
Went to 100% Building Kernel Module then recieved
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find
suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
I get about ~582 FPS with these settings in 24bit color depth.
I doubled the VideoRam to 128mb, and the fps dropped to an average of 256. (24bit color depth.)
I activated the SWCursor option, with 64mb of VideoRam and the fps stayed on an average of 384. (24bit color depth.)
As I mentioned above, with the settings inside the codebox, and a color depth of 16bit, I managed to get the fps to an average of 1000. Didn't see much difference in color though. I don't use any 3D applications, so I don't know how it affects the 3D objects. (Colors, resolution, etc..)
This was my little "benchmarking".
I've got a Travelmate 2301LC, Intel Celeron M320 processor, 1.3GHz, 400 MHz FSB, 512 KB L2 cache. 256MB DDR ram. Chipset: Intel 855GM, Graphics controller: Intel 852GM integrated 3D AGP, 64MB of videoram. (Sorry for the messy description.)
After further investigation, I found that I was using the i910 driver under DRM on the 2.6.13 kernel, and now am using the i915 under 2.6.15. Seems this is what made the difference. Definately an improved version.
