3D Prophet 3500 64 MB video driver install problem
Its the first time i install a driver on a linux box (Fedora) and i could use some help.
I have a 3D Prophet 3500 64 MB video card which is not detected, i downloaded the driver for RedHat 9.0
but when i try to install it, it says kernel version is not correct.
I did :
rpm -Uvh powervr-2.01.21-7.rh90.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel = 2.4.20-8 is needed by powervr-2.01.21-7
I also did : rpm -Uvh --nodeps but its fails in the middle of process asking to read the readmefile to continue the installation.
I downloaded the driver here : http://www.powervr.com/Downloads/Drivers/Index.asp
I am not even sure i downloaded the correct driver so i tried the default one and the one for Redhat but none work, i get the same error.
Thanks in advance for any support

There is a note here about installing on redhat, with specific regards to asking about reading a file: http://www.powervr.com/Downloads/Dri...dex_redhat.asp
If the notes there dont work, you could try compiling from source, but im not sure how complex that will be, using the tgz driver here:
