Does MDK 9.1 PowerPack come with Nvidia drivers?


And if it does, would i be able to install it with open GL while installing the system and with out editing anything?
I downloaded the new nvidia drivers and install it but i can't open up no Open GL programs/Screen Savers/ i try ediiting the file in etc/x11/####### i forgot the name of the file ( ends with -4) but still nothing.
As soon as installations of programs/drivers gets easy, like in windows. Mabe more people will drop on to linux. this makes me not want to even think about my linux partition.......

P.S. I'm using windows as i type this.........

Mandrake 9.1 / TNT2 River, Nvidia 1.0-4496-pkg2.run

I launch a open gl program, like tux racer, and the taskbar icon of the program loading, just sits there with a clock turning and then it goes away not opening the program, is what im getting when trying to start a gl program, or a screensaver not displaying when selected in MDK screen saver selection menu.

Instead of buying the power pack, you're better off joining mandrake club. You get to download everything that comes with the power pack + all kinds of packages that are on none of the cds (in fact, mandrake's strategy is to make money with the club rather than selling the cds, so if you're at all interested in supporting them, you should join the club). Anyway, to get to the pont. If you join the club, you'll be able to download nvidia driver rpms. But I don't know if they will suit all your needs. If they work for your particular setup, you won't have to do anything manually but you never know.
You might look at plf and texstar if they have drivers. To set up software sources manager to make it easy to download from them look at:

They did in mine (9.0), so I would presume so.

well cool.
If i can buy a pack and also join the club from the pack i buy (a year in club from buying the pack deal) then that would be cool. im about to buy a 100 pack cd-r pack and thinking about joining to download as much software as i can.
