Installation complete - now what?
First of all I hope this is the correct forum... it is a kinda Installation issue.
After very many attempts, I have at last got 10.5.5 working, however I am of the opinion that I must now need to install a GFX card driver. I don't appear to have acceleration on the various graphical effects.
I am from a Linux background and usually the first thing I do after installing the distro, is install the nVidia driver. I am guessing this is also needed with OS X?
I have searched the web for the last day or so and even tried installing various GUIs which supposedly contain drivers for nVidia cards. These have all ended in me having to re-install OS X.
When I installed OS X, I selected NVinject but under EFI section I could not find my card listed (nVidia GF 7950GT 256M RAM). I have read various posts talking about kexts and editing plist files etc. Now, I am no stranger to editing files, being from Linux but I need some very basic assistance as to what I need to do now.
I know someone will reply with "Google is your friend" but I have tried lots of things already. I just don't want to bork this installation now. I'm fed up re-installing. Could someone advise me where to go from here and how I can get OpenGL / 3D acceleration working. I will include my hardware details below.
