The nvidia-xconfig utility is installed with 1.0-8178, so there's normally no need to download the source separately unless you wish to perform some kind of development with it.

If you wish to build it manually, all you need to do is run 'make'.

Thanks,
Lonni

im trying to do this one too.

Im logged in as root and i have the xconfig extracted to root/nvidia-xconfig-1.0 so all the files are in that folder. I am so confused as to how to write the command.

This is my first attempt at using Linux so im very very green at getting the commands right .

Thanks for the help in advance :)

launch a terminal by pressing CTRL+ALT+[F2-F6] then login as root, finally:
Code:

cd nvidia-xconfig-1.0
make install

Press CTRL+ALT+F7 to bump back to your graphical side.
