Hello! I just about week ago installed my first GNU/Linux operating
it was Feodora Core 3. I am glad i chose this one, everything is working
properly and i have installed every application i needed, but only one thing
left - Graphic drivers.
*My graphic card - NVIDIA GeeForce MX 4000 64 MB

can`t find out a different way to install a drivers for my graphic card. Sorry
if this is lame, but i just started to use GNU/Linux and i am newb still at this

Nvidia drivers for Fedora, in a very user-friendly format. Here's how
you install it:
1. Make sure you have the Livna repositories configured in yum. The most
recent driver version resides in testing, the older one in stable.
2. Run "yum install nvidia-glx".
3. Restart X.
It takes care of all your configuration and little udev/modprobe hacks
and whatnot. No init 3, running scripts, compiling stuff. When there's a
new kernel released, you run "yum install kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -
r)" to install the corresponding kernel module. It also comes with a
little init script that disables the nvidia driver if you happen to boot
a kernel with no nvidia module, so that X will run just fine with the
