[SOLVED] Getting Nvidia Geforce 6600 on the right computer
Need to get Nvidia-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run onto a slackware12.2 box that has no gui access.
wget failed... and my lack of basic application skills is has been a week long horror. Because i have another Slackware 12.1 box I download the Nvidia driver to xfce desktop... well I don't know how to get that driver onto cd rw disc and i don't know how to open a cd using CLI to get that driver where i need it.
Then I started to install a slack build of Xfburn to slackware12.1 and got stuck after untar libburn-0.6.2-i486-1_rlw.tgz
-> wound up with install folder and usr folder and don't know where the src file gets put into... so i can begin that library's install... I posted asking for an answer to this ques w/o any response.
Finally i went to another slackware12.2 box with KDE and downloaded the Nvidia driver to desktop popped in a cdrw disc and clicked on burn. Oh yes, u guessed it but I don't know how to open that cd access its directory. Where did the gd old days of downloading directly to a floppy go? I have wasted a week googling and disphering other slackware users' tech notes - what is a file root? I have found some info just not instructional enough for my skill level and time restraints. and i don't have a printer to print instructions and then do it so i switch between have working slack boxes. Please help. Thank you
