Display problem with Nvidia card Quadro FX540.
I am newbie on Linux, after some effort (to me anyway :) )I manage to install the Mandrivia LE 2005, as I am setting up a duel boot system, I have been using LILO as my boot loader, there is no problem in booting to either window or Linux. Except in Linux, at the end of all the checks (all status are OK) and just about the GUI is being loaded, the whole screen went blank, while the mouse is still working. nothing is displaced, it just hanged !!!
During the installation, as I could not see the FX540 being listed, so I just picked Nvidia generic hoping in hell that all thing will work !!! Unfortutunately Not !!!!
I have since download the latest driver from Nvidia, the file is: Nvidia-linux-x86-1.0-7667-pkg1, since I have not set up linux application yet, this was down load in window, I have copied this file to a CD.
I can boot to the Linux console OK, but this is as far as I can go......
How do I go from here !!?? ,
How do I copy this file from the CD to a directory !?
Which directory do I copy to ? Do I need to delete some existing file ?
What existing configuration file I need to change & how to do it ?
My knowlege on the command console is minimal.
Any help & comment is much appreciated.
