Don't know about breakage, I just got a new PC and decided to try
Mandrake 7.1, the NVidia stuff works, playng quake arena in 1024x768
very smooth, no idea how many FPS, certainly more than I could
I downloaded the 0.9-2 drivers first of all and it all went nicely,
when I tried 0.9-3 last night it wouldn't work at all so I just
switched back (didn't try very hard though).
What if you nabbed the source RPM for XF4 and compiled it locally, that
might solve you glibc version problem...
