Homer, as I said earlier, I never could get the Nvidia drivers to work under Redhat. I was able to get them to work with Mandrake 8.2 no problem. I also happen to like Mandrake’s tools and setup much better than any other distro I’ve tried (RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake).
Did you run the NVchooser.sh shell script to be sure you had the right RPMs for Redhat?
Thats what I had to do to make sure I had the right RPMs. After that, I followed the Nvidia instructions and expected failure (like I had with Redhat), but surprized that they worked.
I like linux, KDE desktop, and many other things about it, but I have yet to see a signifcant advantage of running linux over Windows. Programs I use like Blender and Gimp don’t seem to run any better than the windows version (actually Blender runs better for me in Win98). I’m not pro M$ but all the things I do can be done easier in Windows. DV capture, multitrack recording, TV tuner (ASUS doesn’t make linux drivers for its TV tuner cards), all my games, scanner.
DV capture in linux is still quite new and undeveloped. I have yet to find any multitrack linux app that even works let alone compares to Cool Edit Pro or Quartz AudioMaster.
I could go on and this could become another Linux vs. Windows debate. Thats not what I’m trying to do. If you are more like me and just want to use applications instead of messing with stuff to get programs to work, then stick with what works already for you. I do linux as a hobby and each time I try a newer version it keeps getting better. But I have yet to see it replacing Win98se as my main OS.
