NVidia GeForce FX 5200 and Red Hat 7.2
Does anyone know if there is a Linux driver for a NVidia GeForce FX 5200 video card (128MB) that will work with Red Hat Linux 7.2?

From the Nvidia graphics driver README


o linux kernel 2.4.0 # cat /proc/version
o XFree86 4.0.1 # XFree86 -version, or
Xorg 6.7 # Xorg -version
o Kernel modutils 2.1.121 # insmod -V

If you need to build the NVIDIA kernel module:

o binutils 2.9.5 # size --version
o GNU make 3.77 # make --version
o gcc 2.91.66 # gcc --version
o glibc 2.0 # /lib/

If you build from source rpms:

o spec-helper rpm # rpm -qi spec-helper

All official stable kernel releases from 2.4.0 and up are supported;
"prerelease" versions such as "2.4.3-pre2" are not supported, nor are
development series kernels such as 2.3.x or 2.5.x. The linux kernel
can be downloaded from or one of its mirrors.
If you meet those requirements, you should be ok!
