    Angry CPU Graphics Rendering (FC6)


    Hey guys,

    I have a feeling that despite installing the latest graphics drivers from livna, my graphics are actually being rendered on the CPU as opposed to on my card, which is stopping 3D Accel from working in cedega and other programs.

    The card I have is a 6200TC (Nvidia GeForce) and I installed the updated kernel before installing the new graphics drivers.

    This is really annoying as it even glitches in games as old as Diablo II and I get a FPS of around 270 with glxgears.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure "nvidia" is the selected driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    That doesn't look too good.
