sh on .run file does nothing ??
i installed redhat 9 and had the usual problem with the fx5200 of no signal to screen.
So i downloaded the latest .run file from nvidia but when i type the:
sh NVIDIA-Linux..... blah blah.run - nothing happens at all just goes back to # prompt
any ideas what i'm doing wrong - complete n00b by the way.
Took me 3 hours to figure out booting to run level 3 - lol
also i take it i downloaded the correct file IA32 ??
or should it have been the IA 64 or what ??
System is athlon 2400
running fx5200 card.
I doubt you have Itanium CPU so you don't need IA64 drivers.
To run nvidia installer you have to change its permission so type in console
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328.run
If you get a message like installer wont run in X mode type init 3 then repeat command ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328.run
You have to change XF86Config(-4) file after you install drivers but I assume you already know that ;)
ok i got to the point where i used the older version of the drivers - 4 something.
Now i need to know an exact path to the xf86config file and i only see that where i am looking not (-4) at the end - hope im looking in the right place.
Also what is the command to open the file for editing then saving etc ??
Complete n00b remember
by the way everything up to the editing of that file has worked fine so far.
If you can boot into x with old configuration go to /etc/X11 directory
open XF86Config-4 with kwrite or gedit then change
(or Driver "vesa")
In the Module section, make sure you have:
You should also remove the following lines:
restart x (ctrl+alt+backspace) and if you see nvidia logo you're fine
If you can't boot in x mode then type
do the same as above
use arrow keys to navigate
"i" button to insert text
:w to save
:q to quit
cheers buddy - i think that should just about do it :D
