installing GeForce 3 ti200 on Redhat 7.3


Hi everyone,

I have looked around this site to try to find an answer to my problem, but it seems that I have done everything mentioned and still can't get the drivers to work. Any advice or suggestions would be very helpful for this recent linux convert!!

Here is my hardware:

Athlon XP 1600
Geforce 3 ti 200 (agp)

Software:

Redhat 7.3 (fresh install) (with KDE running)
Quake 3
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.athlon.rpm

I have installed them rpm's according to Nvidia's directions and modified the XF86Config-4 file as instructed. When I restart xwindows the nvidia logo doesn't come up and I can tell that it isn't openGL accelerated with a few of the screensavers that use openGL. Have even run the shell script from Nvidia to confirm that I have downloaded the correct files and another script (named nv_check.sh) to check that everything is installed ok. Both come out fine.

Have tried this a few times and double checked the config file. What have I missed?

The machine is partitioned...so there is a win2k partition....not sure that woudl matter though.

Again, thanx in advance for your help!
