 Nvidia-Glx With Paldo 1.24

Hell, I am a new Paldo user and I decided to use Paldo simply because I agree with everything this distro wants to offer. I love lightweight desktop and so far this is the fastest Gnome distro I have ever used on Gnome 2.32. Today I downloaded Paldo 1.24 and installed it to my external hard drive.

My Specs Are:
Intel pentium 4 2.50Ghz Processor
1GB Ram
NVIDIA 5200FX 25MB Graphic card
110GB HDD

So I was reading on the forums on how to install the nvidia driver and I did: "upkg-install nvidia-glx" and it wanted to install it so then in terminal I did: "nvidia-settings" and wrote a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I rebooted my PC and it booted into the non-graphical Terminal. I could not boot into the GDM or anything. So, does the latest Nvidia driver you guys provide not work with Paldo 1.24 yet? Does it not support my Nvidia card?

-Thanks

Edit your menu.lst and at the end of the kernl line, write: nouveau.modeset=0

It will look like this (+/-):

kernel /boot/linux-2.6.35.8-paldo1-x86_64 root=/dev/sda1 nouveau.modeset=0



Reboot, and you'll be ok.

So, I install the Nvidia-Glx package, then I edit the menu.lst file and then restart?

"So, I install the Nvidia-Glx package, then I edit the menu.lst file and then restart?". yes, plus one more step.

1 - install nvidia
2 - write the new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
3 - fix the menu.lst as I mentioned above

This is verry odd... I did this on a new fresh install and I did everything in the order you told me and when I boot it up, it gets stuck at booting. Maybe I could do a fresh install again and give you my menu.let file? Again, my card is the nvidia 5200fx 256mb.

-thanks

you ran out of luck!

the package nvidia-glx installs nvidia driver 260.19.21.

But this version doesn't support your Graphic card.

you need to manual install 173.14.28 or live
with the nouveau-driver (Ok, i know this will be a flickering experience)

For more info about your card see

www.nvidia.com
