    problem with some 3d games


    i have an athlon-2600+, geforce4 fx5200 and suse-9.1
    the monitor is old (lg studioworks 14'') and supports only a max of 1024x768@60hz
    Now when i start tuxracer or some other 3d game the monitor goes as if in standby.
    but i can hear the sound and can use the keyboard shortcuts to quit the game
    is there a way to set the default resolution out side the game.

    thanx before hand

    This is a per-program configuration. I am sure there is a ~/.tuxracerrc or something like that. Run 'apropos tuxracer' to find all the manuals appropriate for the game to see if one of them jumps out at you like 'tuxracerrc(5) - TuxRacer configuration file' or something like that.

    Best,

    Have you installed the driver from nVidia's site? It's needed for any form of 3d acceleration in Linux. For instructions on installing it, make sure you read the README for the driver, and read this if you're using Fedora Core 3.
