    Thumbs up Nvidia

    OK, I finally took my own advice and put LINUX
    (dual boot) on my main box.
    It's a COMPAQ deskpro PIII 800, and I had this
    redhat 6.0 cd lying around, so I got a 2nd HD and the install
    went fine, it boots OK win or linux.

    Then there's X! I only get 640x480 video.
    It has an NVIDIA RIVA 64 with TNT chipset
    AGP video card with 32 megs of video RAM.

    I went to the NVIDIA website, and they didn't
    list a driver for older than redhat 6.1
    I downloaded it anyway(RPM format),
    but naturally it won't install because
    it's not for RH 6.0.

    I suppuse you're going to tell me to upgrade
    to 7.2

    My question is, does RH 7.2 come with support
    for this card, or will I still be hunting for drivers?
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Just download the tarball and compile the KERNEL and GLX following the info in the readme.

    Yes. 7.2 does support it.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
