Re: SiS Video not recognised



Nvidia driver now installed and GL screen savers working.

Just a note for anyone else.  You need to run rpm -ivh rpm1 rpm2
where rpm1 and rpm2 are those mentioned by Christopher below.  The two
packages are mutually dependent so need installing together.

Many thanks
Ashley
