nVIDIA Geforce 4 Problems

Hi people.

I'm running Mandrake 9.0; the ISO images from their UK mirror if it makes a difference. I've got the GLX and kernel drivers, they compile and install without errors, but I don't know how to configure the XF86Config file. Do I need to add sections? At the moment there's no driver defined for my device, and the screen driver is set to svga.

How do I need to set up this file to use X11? If you can provide an example for the above hard/software combination, I'd be grateful.

The Readme file on the driver download page should tell you everything you need to change on your XF86Config-4 file. Have you not seen these instructions, or simply not understand them?

Ah, I didn't see the file. I FTP'd to the server and downloaded them.

Thanks for the info.
