Question nvidia gl drivers


RH 7.2 did not install the GL drivers for my geforce 2 mx card when the OS was installed. There are no binaries available for RH7.2 at nvidia.com. Where is the source code for the drivers that will work with my card?

there are tar.gz files at the nvidia site that will work on any distribution. you need to untar the files using:

tar -xzvf nvidiaxxxx.tar.gz

there are good install instructions in the INSTALL and README files. post here again if you have any other questions.

I have a copy of nv_check.sh you can download here, run it after installing the nvidia drivers and it will test the install tell you of any conflicting openGL files left on your system.
