I was following Techie Moe's thread on how to install Nvidia drivers and after entering run level 3 and trying to run the drivers I keep getting a "no such directory or file"..im not sure if i have downloaded the correct driver....i have a regular 32 bit setup and i "thought" that the correct driver was the free BSD driver named NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-8774.tar.gz now im likely wrong...but is this the correct driver? or am i looking for NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8774-pkg1.run? I have both versions on the desktop and in the home folder so im not sure why it cannot find them.....what am i doing wrong?
AMD Athlon 2500+
NVIDIA fx 5500 FORSA

ok i got a ways into it and get to the directory to install the nvidia stuff....then it tells me it has to compile something........it can;t compile it due to the nvidia-ko package being corrupted or not there ....i think this is the only thing stopping me.
When i search for NVIDIA packages in rpmdrake i get these ones
I can't install any of them, it tells me that package can't be selected........
what do i have to do from this point???

From there, following techieMoe's instructions should work nicely.
Just make sure you do all the steps : installation of gcc, make, kernel-source, etc.

Many versions of gcc, make and kernel-source may be available. Still, there is one default "gcc", one default "make" and one kernel-source related to your kernel version."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday.
