    Hi,

    I own a pc Pentium III 933 MHz (RAM 256 Mb) supported by an “Elsa Gladiac 511” grafic card (an old one), with a “NVidia GeForce 2 DDR” chip (RAM 64 Mb).

    This is surely an obsolete system but it worked very well with “QiLinux 2”.

    I tryed to update to “OpenMamba” but I encoutered some problems with the grafic card.

    At first, the display started at 640×480 mode without any chance of switching to a better resolution at all (Whereas QiLinux allowed to select the screen resolutions during the installation procedure).

    Furthermore, I noticed a very very slow performance in OpenGL applications (like screensavers) I didn’t encounter previously.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Hi,

    to investigate the problem you might open a bug at bugs.openmamba.org attaching your /var/log/Xorg.0.conf file and the output of ls /etc/alternatives.

    Hi Silvan,

    this message only to tell you that today I’ve downloaded the OpenMamba image file again and now Nvidia driver works !!! I’m very happy, thank you very much.

    I hope the live update will not compromise this configuration.

    If it’ll be I’ll inform you.

    I can enjoy this beautifull release at last.

    Compliments.
