    video drivers


    I have a Diamond Stealth III Multimedia card in my AGP slot. Can I use nvidia drivers on it? Where can I get linux drivers for it? I don't see linux on Diamond's support list. I have SUSe 9.0 professional.

    I think it's an s3 savage chipset so try using the "savage" driver in XF86Config(-4)

    How do I do that? I'm new to the command line. I'm a windows convert.

    cd /etc/X11 -- change directory to where the XF86Config file is
    su -- to log in as root
    nano XF86Config-4 -- hope you have 'nano' installed

    To check if 'XF86Config-4' is the right name you can type 'dir' or 'ls' to see the content of the directory.

    cd =change directory
    su=super user (root)
    nano /vi <filename> opens a file with a terminal editor
    ls=like dir in dos->shows the contents of a folder
    for more information open a terminal window and type man <command you want to see information of>
    good luck!
