Question Mandrake 10.0 and GeForce 4 TI4400?

Hi there,

As so many others I'm temptet to give Mandrake a shot. I'm totally
new on the Linux scene, but need to get startet.

First mission for me is to check for hardware compatibility. Now,
I've got a GeForce 4 Ti 4400, and went straight to the mandrakelinux website and saw this:


"Not Supported Hardware.
This hardware isn't compatible with Mandrakelinux, due to the lack of
open source drivers or the unwillingness of its manufacturer."


Does my Linux Adventure stop here, or is it just the hardware that
Linux supports by default - Meaning that I will be able to get a
driver from NVIDIA themselves.

- On NVidias website I can se that it would work under Mandrake 9.1, but does this mean it will work under 10.0?

Thanks in advance!

If I was you I would download the 5330 drivers from NVIDIA's website. I wouldn't get the latest ones for that card but the ones right before it. That should get you going.

I don't know what Mandrake is talking about. I use 9.1 and they're great, although I would recommend the latest drivers, later is usually better...
