TITLE: NVIDIA Graphics Driver for x86 Linux Workstations VERSION: 5336 Rev. A DESCRIPTION: This contains the NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver for x86 Linux Workstations PURPOSE: Recommended SOFTPAQ NUMBER: SP27124 SUPERSEDES: None EFFECTIVE DATE: January 30, 2004 CATEGORY: Driver - Graphics - Nvidia SSM SUPPORTED: No PRODUCT TYPE(S): Workstations PRODUCT MODEL(S): HP Workstation xw4100: All Models HP Workstation xw6000: All Models HP Workstation xw8000: All Models OPERATING SYSTEM(S): Red Hat Linux 7.2 Red Hat Linux 7.3 Red Hat Linux 8.0 Red Hat Linux 9.0 RH Ent Linux 3 (IA32) LANGUAGE(S): Global ENHANCEMENTS: Driver Enhancements over previous version: - Enables Quadro FX3000 graphics device. - Supports Quadro4 280NVS (AGP & PCI) device - Full Red Hat Advanced Workstation 3 support - First Release-50 driver - Overall performance improvements - Improved installer functionality Packaging Enhancements: - Not kernel dependent. This new package takes advantage of nVIDIA's new '.run' installer functionality. This RPM package can be used against most any kernel flavor within the supported distributions. - Provides easy 1-step configure/unconfigure scripts. - Also installs a init script that will automatically build the driver as necessary during boot, to aid in the fact that most users often change or update kernels. - Better documentation on how to use this package, and how to take advantage of other more advanced installtion options available to you. - Also provides example configuration files for XFree. FIXES: - Added support for UBB and FSAA stereo. - Improved GLXPixmap support - Fixed other various minor issues. PREREQUISITES: N/A HOW TO USE: 1. You must be ROOT user with no X-server running (init 3). 2. Check for existing nvidia packages, at prompt type: 'rpm -qa | grep nv' 3. Remove any previous package, for example: 'rpm -e nvidia-4496-7.i386.rpm' 4. Install the new package: 'rpm -ivh nvidia-5336-1.i386.rpm' NOTE: This will install the package file onto the system, but does not configure the new driver. 5. Configure the new package by executing script: '/opt/hp/graphics/nvidia/configure' NOTE: This will place/build, and configure the nVIDIA accelerated graphics module. **It will also move aside any current XF86Config file and put a standard nVIDIA one in place. FOR MORE INFORMATION: See the documentation provided in '/opt/hp/graphics/nvidia' for more information on this package, advanced istallation options, and more example XF86Configuration files and options.
