PostSubject: Nvidia and Older Mandrake Systems   Thu Dec 25, 2008 6:12 pm

The thing you could do with the Nvidia Card and running Mandrake 7.1 would be:

Goto Nvidia's website and get a driver update (be careful to get the one for Xfree86 and not xorg - because xorg hasn't been implented into Mandrake at this time) Unless, however, you want to get the new xorg 7.2rc3 going, then by all means...get the new Nvidia driver. Very Happy

But, if you don't plan on doing anything but getting your video card going without any significant changes to the system. Download the xfree driver, then open a terminal session and su into root priv's, then type init 1. Now, install the nvidia driver. Once the driver is installed and you are back to the prompt, type init 5 (to boot into x session automatically with user account) then type:

shutdown -r now <enter>

That will reboot the computer, and you should boot back up into mandrake with a nice little nvidia splash screen, and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps you out....

PostSubject: Belkin FDS5020 PCMCIA Ethernet card   Thu Dec 25, 2008 11:23 pm

I am trying to set up the above card,I have installed Fedora core 2 with the card installed yet it does not detect it.

When I try to add a new network card the list of cards does not include the belkin one yet it is supported under Linux from what I've read but there doesn't seem to much information on how to do it.

Anybody got any ideas or tips?

Are you sure that's the correct model number for the card.
I found this link but it refers to a different model

You might just find a sound driver for your card. If it is a VIA AC'97 based
controller, these drivers SHOULD install without a problem.



The default volume level is very low on SuSe, assuming you have the correct drivers, turn up the volume in SuSe and turn your speakers up a bit
