27379Re: garbled NVidia display - Dell 8200 Mandriva Linux (NVidia Driver Problem)
- Sep 15, 2005thanks I will download on to my Linux partition shortly..
Will these work for the standard Mandriva Download Kernel and will I
have to recompile and change everything if I upgrade the kernel and
kernel source? So I just unintstall the nvidia.run file compiled
driver (with some uninstall option I presume) and then install these
Will these xfonfig files work with 1600x1200?
