AMD64 - WRONG README! What to do???
 
So nvidia graciously released some AMD64 drivers but they didn't get around to doing that handy .run file that it talks about in the README. I got those .tar files but no instructions! Whatever am I to do????

I'm pretty new. I mean I've compiled stuff before and half the time there are errors or it just doesn't work, but I need some step by step instructions here.

Mandrake 9.2 AMD64 RC1
GeForce 4 ti4400
Asus K8V Delux

Thanks for helping.

A little further down in the download page there is a link to the patch script that has better instructions...

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/sup...fx-AMD64-HOWTO

but unfortunately, I still havn't been able to make the patched driver build.

for anyone else that wants some good instructions, I found some over on linuxquestions.org: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=52021

Good luck. I'm going to give it a whirl now.

Those are good instructions, however they don't include the patch step that is in the howto for the x86_64 instructions.

Not sure how much that matters, as I havn't been able to get it functional with or without the patch anyway.
