Hi guys,

I went through the NVidia driver installation OMP at the weekend (unsuccessfully ???). I wonder if I got caught out with editing the XFConfig file instead of XFConfig-4 like so many others??

I currently have XFree86 version 4.2.0-72, kernel 2.4.18-14 and an NVidia GeForce 2 GTS card (so no acceleration). I was looking at the XFree86 web site and noticed that version 4.2.1 appears to support acceleration for this card now.

I tend to use Synaptic and apt for package download and installation but it's not showing an update at the moment which I think probably means there's nothing Redhat 8-specific out there right now. I'm looking for some advice on whether or not to go ahead and grab the download from XFree86 or wait until I see something on Synaptic.

If I go for the 'Do it yourself' option, what would I need to backup to make sure I can get a working system again should I have problems?

Looking forward to the advice ......
