Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

Editing XF86Config not needed
by kmp on Tue 8th Oct 2002 09:45 UTC

You don't have to edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file to use the nVidia drivers. After installing them, launch the redhat-config-xfree86 utility (Display under System Settings) and click the Advanced tab. Then, under video card, click configure. In the driver box, simply type in nvidia and click ok. Log out, do a ctrl-alt-backspace and log back in. You should be using the nvidia drivers now.
