Otherwise, you can't be sure that the information "written" to the drive has actually been written to it, or if it's merely waiting in a buffer or cache. That's no different from removing a floppy or USB flash drive without umounting it. That's the key point, I can't imagine other things being needed. Michael

Nvidia supports linux. i.e. you can get drivers for almost all distributions
from Nvidia. use three GForce2 cards, hadn't had a problem. Their new driver
installer is pretty slick, makes it a snap to have your card up and running.

Go to the nVidia site:



Graphics Driver
<your card type>
Linux IA32

Then click 'Go!'

From the next page, dowload:


and follow the instructions in the README file, which you should also
download. In particular the instructions regarding the changes you need to
make to /etc/X11/XF86Config.

The install process is automated and should present no problems. Gives
good 3D performance too!

I've found the installer detects my FX 5200 as an ATI Mach 64.  This 
causes X to not start.  Once I replaced the Driver="ati" with 
Driver="nv", it ran great for 2D applications.  Now that I've installed 
NVidia's linux driver, it works for the 3D stuff too. :)  Unreal 
Tournement is slightly faster under Linux than Windows (for me). :)

I've successfully used Nvidia's cost-free binary only drivers
on both a GeForce4 MX and a GeForce4 4600 under RedHat 9.0.
They're easy to install and work very well.

The only annoying thing is that everytime to upgrade your
kernel, you've gotta re-install them.

How does one turn on the 3D? I have their driver installed but the 3D button in 
the RH9 Gnome settings wizard. Is there a XF86Config entry for this?

2.SIS card Pronlem in RH Linux 9.0


I have Pentium 555Mhz system with SIS 6326 8 MB VGA card. I installed
Red Hat
Linux 7.2 in this system which worked well with the SIS card. Then i
swithced to Red Hat Linux 9.0 (Downloaded). But X is not starting up.

It has XFree86  4.2.0 version with low 640 x 480 resolution. XFree86
log shows the following error

drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
drmOpenDevice: minor is 0
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
[drm] failed to load kernel module "sis"
(II) SIS(0)

I even changed SIS to VESA in the XF86Config file under the video ram
But still the problem persists.

Any help will be appreciated.

Of course, people can try to guess what your problem is ... or, you can 
help yourself by providing more information. Some things to condsider: 
What type of card? What procedures have you tried? Are there any error 
messages you see? etc. I'm sure you get the picture.
