Installing Nvidia Drivers in Linux
Ive installed the RED HAT Linux 9 and its nice but my Nvidia 4600 only installed the generic driver so i downloaded the 4496 Linux driver.
My problem is when i run the script, i get an error saying log in as root. Well i do this and run the script again. I get a x server error message. KNow i understand the only way to install this driver is to exit X and run command. I don't know where the driver is in command mode and this is getting comfusing. Does anyone have a good way to install the Linux Nvidia driver?
what kernel are you using? whats the error message say?
have you read the readme? ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...496/README.txt
All you do is move into the directory where the nvidia installer is,
login as root
and then run the package.

Oh, btw, X should not be running when you execute the file, so make sure you are in runlevel 3 (/sbin/telinit 3 while in su will set the runlevel to 3). I suggest you edit the /etc/inittab file and set the startup runlevel to 3, in case there are any problems. Use the command "startx" to enter X from runlevel 3.
