GeForce 4 Ti on Linux... :@

Recommended Posts

Before i say anything i must mention that i''m not too experienced with Linux environment. Now the problem is: I can''t install my new GeForce 4 Ti card (MSI, 64 mb) on my RedHat 7.2. Linux simply wouldn''t detect my card as well as my monitor !! ( which it previously did with my old TNT2 card). Hence i had to complete the installation without X-Cofiguration ( there''s very little to configure when u dont have your card detected ). What do i do now.... where do i get linux drivers for my Geforce4 Ti. I''ve been loitering around the nVidia website for quite sometimes now.. but honestly speaking i''m sortof lost. Someone plz help.....

The link that Dr_BCC post is probably what you''ll want to end up using, but I think it should be noted: Geforce cards prior to the Geforce 4 series are supported in any moderately new version of XFree86 and the Geforce 4 line is supported in XFree86 4.3 or newer. Because of NVidia''s not releasing any specifications for how to write drivers that support their cards'' 3D features, there is no 3D acceleration in the open drivers included with XFree86. The drivers on NVidia''s website do support full 3D acceleration (but newer versions seem to have mediocre 2D acceleration), of course.
