NVidia GT240 not being recognized. - rufsketch1 - 09-18-2011

So I compiled the latest stable version. It runs, but just barely. I get a few seconds per frame.

The output claims I don't have an NVIDIA card, which is news to me.

I have an NVIDIA GT240. Running driver version 270.41.06

Hi rufsketch1. Your driver installation seems to be broken. You are running mesa software renderer:

Version: 2.1 Mesa 7.9-devel

Hmm. You're right. Other OpenGL programs seem to have just stopped working. (Maybe as a result of the install, maybe coincidence?) Do you think a driver reinstall would fix the problem? Or is there something else I should generally try first?

I had the exakt same problem! I solved it by updating my Nvidia drivers, also removing the old ones before.
