What distro and version are you running? mines drake 9.1 and it recognized my video card off the install but the default drivers are no good. Goto www.nvidia.com and download the latest 1.0-4363 run file. Once dowloaded you'll have exit X-server to run the install tho. Basically reboot to a shell prompt and you should be good to go.

Ok, I DL'ed the drivers, exited X, and installed them. The install was successful, but it told me I had to edit the x86fconfig file or something, and I had no way to open the file and edit it, do you know how to edit that config file?

i think its located in /etc/X11/ or /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 just click the config file x86fconfig file and it opens in a text editor, what you'll have to edit is clearly defined in the documents that come with the driver. read, read, read, its all there for you.

oh btw if you do edit the config file and can't start X server or get back into x server then you messed up the x86fconfig file, just reinstall the nvidia drivers and dont edit the config file anymore.

Well, I knew it was located in /usr/x11r6/bin, but with Red Hat 8, For some reason, when a double-click on the x86fconfig file, it thinks the file is a script or a executable, and when I open it in the text editor, it doesn't come up as a text file, but just one line of gibberish.

Here is an outstanding forum: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?forumid=14

And it's "glx" not "gix". It stands for "OpenGL for X". You need to ensure that nVidia drivers are loading the glx modules in the XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) file.

I am having the same problem too. How can you tell if the drivers are loading everything correctly?
