Re: Nvidia 71.86 for Lupu 5.00
I use Puppy 5 (kernel 188.8.131.52) and i'm looking for the Nvidia 71.86 driver in .pet format. It seems that my (very) old Riva TNT card is not supported by newer version (i.e. 96.43 and later) anymore.
I searched for that driver finding them only for previous version of Puppy (i.e. 4).
Thanks in advance
I have a compatible card too. Unfortunately the old TNT cards are not supported since Xorg 7.4. This something out of our hands since Lupu is designed for the latest Ubuntu compatibility
You will get better graphics performance if you install Xorg_High, but in saying that please make a backup of your pupsave or if you are using a full install all critical files. While it works fine for me, it may not for you.
