XVideo Support for MSI MX440SE

I had thought that I read somewhere that NVidia chips (GeForce4) has XV support, but when I type xvinfo I get this...

[root@localhost root]# xvinfo
X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

Maybe I haven't installed something, I don't remember installing a video driver when I setup RH8.0, It just all sort of worked.

Any ideas?

go get the drivers for your card at and READ the readme on how to setup these drivers, or look at MasterC's post in the newbie fourm (its a sticky thread at the top) on how to setup nvidias drivers...i dont' think he goes into the detail of the video but thats where the readme comes into play, and just come back if you have a problem
