    NVidia Drivers and Kernel Upgrade(2.4.nn-2.6.9)


    Hi

    Just installed Slack 10 to replace Fedora 2, and i'm having problems with X, It wont start, i'm guessing coz I dont have the drivers for my FX5200 installed correctly,

    I've run the script as suggested on the Nvidia site but get a SIGSEGV?? near the end, X still wont run, any ideas I can try ?

    also I was looking to upgrade to 2.6.9 where can I get the code for this ?


    Cheers
    Tony

    If you just want to get X started, you can use the driver "nv"

    To do so you have to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Post the commands and errors you got running the script. It sounds like maybe you downloaded the wrong script.

    As for how to update a kernel, check out this thread: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/top...tml&highlight=
