Problem description

The GE Force 2 GTS and MX cards are incorrectly recognized in Linux-Mandrake 7.1. harddrake identifies the card as a GE Force 256 card. Because of this the framebuffer kernel is not installed on the system. This XFree86-server package will correct the problem and should be installed in the following manner: - Install 7.1 on your computer if you have not already done so. If you choose the recommended install method, you will have to reset the computer near the end because the X server will automatically be tested. - Restart the computer in runlevel 3 (text mode). - Uninstall the XFree86-glide-module if it is installed (it will be if you chose recommended install) by using: rpm -e XFree86-glide-module - Install the XFree86-server-4.0.1-26mdk.i586.rpm package listed below by using: rpm -Uvh XFree86-server-4.0.1-26mdk.i586.rpm - Execute /usr/sbin/XFdrake as root and select the resolution and color depth you wish to use. Do not perform a configuration test. Select whether you want to use the X server at startup or not. - Change to the /etc/X11 directory by using: cd /etc/X11 - You must redo the symbolic link for the installed X server by using: ln -sf ../../usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 X - You may then start the X server by using: startx
