    If you want to use the AIGLX that comes with X.org 7.1, the 460 Go is supported. You'll need Nvidia's binary drivers (version 96.29 or higher), and either compiz or beryl for now.

    Have a look at antidrugue's tutorial for configuration details. It's written with Debian in mind, but most of it is universally applicable.

    how do i install the drivers? iam a complete n00b with linux

    2. Install the kernel-source
    A. urpmi kernel-source OR
    B. Go to mandrake control center > software management >install >search and type kernel and download
    This is the correct kernel source: kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-12mdk
    [imdeemvp@localhost imdeemvp]$ uname -r
    2.6.8.1-12mdk
    [imdeemvp@localhost imdeemvp]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-*
    kernel-2.6.8.1.12mdk-1-1mdk
    kernel-2.4.27.0.pre2.1mdk-1-1mdk
    kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-12mdk
    [imdeemvp@localhost imdeemvp]$


    that makes no sense to me
