AOpen Video Driver

Post by art_mcclure »

Anyone know where I can download a driver for an AOpen M64-AGP video card? Yes! The box is that old.

my research says that is an old nvidia tnt2 m64 if that is the case you would probably be better off just using the drivers supplied with mint, here is a link to the legacy driver on the nvidia web site. http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverRe ... 5626/en-us use at your own risk. be sure to know how to recover your computer if it dosent work. I cant say that it will.

If you just installed Mint 17, the open-source module was installed by default and you are very probabley already using it.

Thanks all. I sorta got the desktop going with the nvidia drivers and cpu usage is way down. I'll keep trying. Thanks again!
