Problem with graphics card Drivers. Please Help!

Hello to all!

I am a 3d desktop effects maniac and I would like to enable the 3d graphics acceleration ability for my (please don't laugh) nvidia geforce fx 5200. I tried the xorg drivers, but it kept on reverting to the normal drivers, and wouldn't enable the 3d acceleration. So now I can't run the 3d effects. Any help would be great.

All the best,

You can get the proprietary nVidia drivers package for your graphics card from plf. You can set up the plf media sources for urpmi at Easy URPMI by following the directions there.

You can also get the latest nVidia drivers from the nVidia WEB site. To install these drivers, switch to a console screen (ALT+F2), log in and su to root, exit Xorg (telinit 3), make the nVidia file executable
chmod +x  ./
and execute it


3d, beryl, geforce, mandriva, nvidia
