Question Nvidia TNT2 Drivers?


Hi!

Sorry my bad english, hopefully you understood something! I have Xandros Desktop Os 3.0 and old Nvidia Riva TNT2 64 graphics card.

Some days ago I installed the game named Enemy-territory and all is ok, but when I try to play this game it say "no hardware acceleration " etc.

Should I install something drivers to the 3D-card? How i can do it? Im very novice for using linux..

Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks win32sux!

Here it is.

Quote:
If you already have an X config file working with a different driver
(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")
with
Driver "nvidia"
In the Module section, make sure you have:
Load "glx"
You should also remove the following lines:
Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

if they exist. There are also numerous options that can be added to the
X config file to fine-tune the NVIDIA X driver. Please see Appendix D
for a complete list of these options.
*testing*
