Hi All,
	I spent an hour looking through archives this morning and I either missed my 
answer or it just isn't there.
	The machine in question is an Athlon 800mhz processor with 768 megs of ram.
Just yesterday, I installed a Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200 AGP card . I compiled 
the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz and installed NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386.rpm.

	Hey this is great! Fantastic compared to the Savage s4 that I replaced. So I 
then ran glxgears. The gears spin furriously for about a half second, stop

	I'm running XFree86-4.2.0-6elx and XFree86-tools-4.2.0-6elx. Could glxgears 
be my problem? Or could it be my XF86Config-4? How can I tell? There are no 
games installed though I suppose I could install QuakeIII if I had to.
	Thanks in advance for your help.
