    Return To Castle Wolfenstein v 1.41 Linux

    Has anyone got this to work in Knoppix 3.9. My system specs are

    AMD Athlon 2500+
    1GB PC2700 Mem
    Nvidia GeForce 5600 Vid Card with 128mb onboard memory
    Sound Blaster Audigy (Original)

    I have never been able to compile the nvidia accelerated vid drivers with knoppix. I believe the error occured in the kernel module compilation. I will add there errors in another post below this one.

    Sweet

    I have a problem wsith getting my nvidia card working & i have mostly the same specs as u
    AMD Athlon 2600+

    1GB PC3200 Mem
    Nvidia GeForce 5700 Vid Card with 256mb onboard memory
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS platinum pro

    I dont think that thesound card has anything to do with it LOL

    your problem seems to be that, like windows, knoppix systems may not like nvidia, because nvidia failed to pay mr knopper billions of dollars to support its hardware. LOL

    The problem is that you kernel source is not directly specified when you use de nvidia.run
    you might try NVidia-Linux-x86-X.X-XXXX-pkg.run --kernel-name=2.6.11 or --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux

    this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
    your kernel.
    Example -> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.11/source'
    I really don't remember know if it'll work because the source which came with knoppix always give me trouble (that's why I recompile my kernel from a full source) remember knoppix is a live-cd .

    You can try if the kano scripts (section Install scripts for graphic cards after HD install) work for you, try someone like the 'install-nvidia-6629-debian.sh'

    It worked for me when I have the same problem like you.

    p.d: now that i finally read the topic...WTF??? What all of this has to do with castle of wolfenstein...sorry moderators my bad I didn't realize...
