Nvidia driver asks for Binutils
When installing the "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run" driver from nvidia's home page i use the CTRL+ALT+F1 to get out if my KDE desktop.. and then proseed to login to my root account.

i then type /1.run (because i shortend the file name)

and it comes up asking if i have binutils installed. so i read the ReadMe file which sayz to go in to the directory where your saveddriver is so i type CD /. which then give me the directory.. in the read me file it aslo sayz type "SH" so i then type "sh 1.run"

which it again asks about my binutils and something to with lb

I have no clue what its talking about

this is my first time using linux. i have Mandrake 9.2 and im litarly installing my first nvidia driver in linux..

Please can some one give me a step by step Guide to do this.. i don't know kernals etc.. or what most of the addressies mean :(

I guess MS has corrupted my brain for its simplisty.. i think a duble click EXE like the detonators would more simple. but as usal in the pc world nothing is

Thanks for you help

sounds like you need to install gcc
sounds like you need to install gcc the compiler, but I have not heard of this before, maybe everyone does install the GCC compiler.

It asks for the binutils since it needs (at the very least) ld to link the binary kernel module component and the appropriate prebuilt kernel interface file; it requires additional development tools such as gcc and properly configured kernel sources if it can't find a precompiled kernel interface file matching the running kernel. This is documented in the README.
