          hmm you just confused me there. Normally when booting
          knoppizz 3.3, it just boots straight into the OS. You
          dont get options to choose display drivers. it does it
          for you automatically (if it recognises your video
          card). However, since the card i have is relatively
          new, it is not recognising it.

            I'll have to leave this in the hands of anothe knopppizz user then . Odd
            that it does not recognise that card tho. Mandrake 9.0 recognises it
            ..... are you sure there is no way to configure options?
            Anyone got his flavor OS?

              If the fx5900 is the nvidia geforce fx5900 then i think you need the
              binary proprietary drivers from nvidia. These are not on the knoppix CD
              but there is a thread about installing them after live-cd boot here

              http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4016

              I think it also tells how to remaster the CD so it automagically works.
              Other posts on this forum may also be useful.

                I'm thinking that Knoppix should use the basic GPL'ed nv drivers, which
                should work with anything Nvidia.

                When next you boot Knoppix, press F2. You should see a lot of command
                line arguments that you can pass to the kernel on boot.

                "If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
                unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
                nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment

                Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003) http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html

                  Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver
                  documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003)
                  http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html
                  At any rate, I think that the 5900 series cards were released about
                  October-November 2003. That would mean that support would either be
                  based on the 'nv' driver, or the binary Nvidia driver (URL below). The
                  corresponding version of XFree86 with built-in support would likely be
                  4.4.0 RC2 (23Dec2003) or 4.4.0 pre-release (31Jan2004).

                  Finally, this is the URL for Knoppix boottime configuration:
                  http://download.linuxtag.org/knoppix/knoppix-cheatcodes.txt

                  Nvidia drivers for Linux are here:
                  http://www.nvidia.com/linux

                  and this page:
                  ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/README
                  should give you a good overview and additional resources to get you
                  started, including XFree86 configuration.

                  Hope this helps.


                  Cheers,
                  A.

                    Also note that Knoppix 3.3 was released 19 November, 2003, so you might
                    have to mount the ISO, insert the module/driver in the correct place
                    manually and reburn the CD, *plus* use the kernel switch to force use of
                    the module/driver.
                    I dunno. Just a guess, but it should work.

                    Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003) http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html

                      Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver
                      documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003)
                      http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html
                      At any rate, I think that the 5900 series cards were released about
                      October-November 2003. That would mean that support would either be
                      based on the 'nv' driver, or the binary Nvidia driver (URL below). The
                      corresponding version of XFree86 with built-in support would likely be
                      4.4.0 RC2 (23Dec2003) or 4.4.0 pre-release (31Jan2004).

                      Finally, this is the URL for Knoppix boottime configuration:
                      http://download.linuxtag.org/knoppix/knoppix-cheatcodes.txt

                      Nvidia drivers for Linux are here:
                      http://www.nvidia.com/linux

                      and this page:
                      ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/README
                      should give you a good overview and additional resources to get you
                      started, including XFree86 configuration.

                      Hope this helps.

                        My older nVidia GE/Force FX400 doesn't seem to have problems with
                        Knoppix (or vice versa), but MandrakeMove appears to have better drivers.

                        Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003) http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html

                          Note that there is no specific reference to that card in the driver
                          documentation for stable XFree86 4.3.0 (Feb2003)
                          http://www.xfree.org/current/Status.html
                          At any rate, I think that the 5900 series cards were released about
                          October-November 2003. That would mean that support would either be
                          based on the 'nv' driver, or the binary Nvidia driver (URL below). The
                          corresponding version of XFree86 with built-in support would likely be
                          4.4.0 RC2 (23Dec2003) or 4.4.0 pre-release (31Jan2004).

                          Finally, this is the URL for Knoppix boottime configuration:
                          http://download.linuxtag.org/knoppix/knoppix-cheatcodes.txt

                          Nvidia drivers for Linux are here:
                          http://www.nvidia.com/linux

                          and this page:
                          ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/README
                          should give you a good overview and additional resources to get you
                          started, including XFree86 configuration.

                          Hope this helps.


                          Cheers,
                          A.

                            I've had a lot of problems with onboard Nvidia (on AMD) -- in a few
                            cases i ended up using the vesa driver- others just didnt seem to work
                            right- in the end we moved our appliance platform to the onboard
                            Intel(on Intel) with worked amazingly well.

                            I think part of the problem with onboard Nvidia (this sounds like the Nforce and Nforce2 platforms) is that there s a lot of nonstandard stuff in there.

                              I think part of the problem with onboard Nvidia (this sounds like the Nforce and Nforce2 platforms) is that there's a lot of nonstandard stuff in there. Nvidia does provide proprietary, binary drivers for a lot of them, but it can be an effort getting them to work.

                              You're right: the onboard Intel stuff gives less problems.

                              I've had a lot of problems with onboard Nvidia (on AMD) -- in a few
                              cases i ended up using the vesa driver- others just didnt seem to work
                              right- in the end we moved our appliance platform to the onboard
                              Intel(on Intel) with worked amazingly well.

                                  This caused a major shift in hardware for us-- originally we were going
                                  to use the shuttle with nvidia on board-- reasoning was that the
                                  graphics performcance was supposed to be better- because of the problems
                                  with the nvidia, we started testing intel-- we were majorly surprised.
                                  Our application uses onboard components to keep our applicance around
                                  3.5" deep. The performance of the Intel system surpassed our
                                  expectations- MSI and Asus manufacture some good intel based boards
                                  where everything works flawlessly with linux (redhat 9- i saw some
                                  issues with other distros-bah!). Add a cheap 2.0GHz celeron CPU and
                                  512MB of ram and you have a really good media system.

                                  So far we have modified a linux video player and mozilla for our
                                  application-- our modifications make both these applications totally
                                  useless for conventional use- but we have a pretty powerfull standalone
                                  media machine- we can play virtually any image and video format of any
                                  size-- typically a high quality 15 second ad is about 260MB- we have
                                  files that are about 5GB to run- Our system cruises through it no
                                  problem. I've noticed a couple flickers- On some Nvidia Nforce2 test
                                  environments these did not occur- but there were many issues that made
                                  us use the intel-- the Nforce2 simply does not perform consistently
                                  under linux- its a pity- since it has shown that it can produce great
                                  and almost flawless video.

Nvidia does provide proprietary, binary drivers for a lot of them, but it can be an effort getting them to work.
