Dear Nvidia: NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm is WACKED... You can't download it?
 
I've tried to download the recommended NVchooser file for my system: "NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm" several times and I get all kinds of weird stuff. I get stalls, disconnects, and the md5sum's are always wrong?... Can someone please check it out, and tell me what to do?

Thanks and Love You!

Grab the 3123 version instead... ?

Thanks bwkaz,

Would that work ok?... NVchooser prog. told me that this was the correct file...

And if I get the file that You recommend (3123 version), should I also get the GLX file with the same number?

You should grab the updated version of NVchooser.sh from the 1.0-3123 download page. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li...splay_1.0-3123

I think the newer versions of the drivers are always better. NVChooser just helps to make sure what your architecture is ....

e.g if NVChooser tell you to get somethign for athlon getting a newer version is always better, but just make sure you get it for the same architecture athlon.

instead of
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm
you can also download
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-XXXX.src.rpm
as long as XXXX is a newer version.

correct me if I am wrong.

Yeah, the actual version and release numbers aren't really important. What's important is architecture, the kernel you're running, and your distro.

Some NAT configurations seems to fail silently with the Nvidia downloads. When I get a chance to study tcpdump output, I'll have a few more answers.

Aside: I'm using 1.0-2960 myself since 1.0-3123 is very unstable on my system.

* 2.4.{1[89],20-pre11}
* Debian Sid (gcc "2.95.4", XFree86 4.2.1-3)
* nVidia Corporation NV20 [GeForce3 Ti200] (rev a3) (VISIONTEK)
* VT82C598/694x [Apollo MVP3/Pro133x AGP]
* nvagp

"very unstable" -> random X crashes w/ 1.0-3123. However, 1.0-2960 is considerably more stable.
