    Installing NVidia Drivers for my TNT2


    Hi all

    I have got a machine here with Knoppix 3.7, and a TNT2 card.

    I downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run driver but I need help installing it.

    I have changed the etc/innittab to level 3 as instructed, thats fine.

    But when I either go into the Konsole (as root) or fo a Ctrl-Alt-F1 and type

    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86......

    Nothing happens. Also I cant find this XConfig file I am supposed to amend to tell it to use the New drivers. The graphics now are really bad...

    Thanks all

    Hong

    PS I tried typing the command in froma fresh reboot, so I know X isnt running but iy still doesnt work. No errors: just nothing happens.

    try actually running
    Code:
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run
    the file you need to edit will be
    Code:
    /etc/X11/XFree86Config

    I seem to remember having to change its permissions before it would run. If that is the case go:

    chmod 777 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run

    before you begin.
