Patching NV X driver for 2.5.7x
I downloaded the 1.0-4363 .diff file from http://www.minion.de/nvidia.html but I don't know what to do with it as they don't give instructions on that page. I've tried running patch -p0/ -p1 < *.diff with the .diff in the same directoy as the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run file, but I wasn't expecting that to work as I realise the .run is a binary.

Anybody help me out here?
