Games Running Slow (Mandrake 10)

Warning: I am a

Anyways, I am currently running Mandrake 10.0 and I have tryed to run the games that default-ly install... They run EXTREMELY slow.... I have a Geforce 4, 768mb ram and a fairly fast processor (and I could run windows games fine) so i do not see why. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi magikmaster!

Welcome to Well, all that I can think about is that you are not using nvidia official drivers. The drivers that come with most distros are generic 2D drivers that only allow you to use your card without any TV-out or 3D acceleration support. Get into and download the linux driver(IA-32 is most likely the one you want ). I never recommend the latest one from Nvidia, they tend to be buggy, so grab the second newest one .

Search the forum after Installing Nvidia drivers. It's pretty simple to install and there're plenty of threads regarding this subject. If you still get into trouble, post your problems here and we will try to help you!
