Default Re: Can't run the .run file

pe1chl Try to run it from a command window instead of clicking on it.
That was the first thing I tried. Did it both as user and as root, no luck.

Schugy Switch to a console with alt+ctrl+F1 (until F6)
F7 is the X-Server on most systems.

1. login as root
2. switch to a non-graphical runlevel with init 2 (until init 5, init 0 is halt, init 6 is reboot)
3. rmmod nvidia (if old driver module was loaded)
4. sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1.run (type sh NV and use autocompletion with TAB)
5. you will be guided through the installation process

zbiggy You can add executable permission to file using:
chmod 755 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1.run
then you can run it from console (remember to close graphical desktop first).
Neither of these worked, it says there's no such file or directory. I have both the 32bit and 64bit drivers downloaded, but can't access either of them. As for getting out of the graphical interface, that's no problem. Since I deleted all the packages listed in the link in my first post I have no drivers at all, need to reconfigure the X-server before I can do anything.

I've also tried re-installing from the live CD, but it's not working either. I get a pile of error messages, "expected null handler on exit", and it runs for hours without starting Ubuntu. This is odd because it's the exact same live CD I used for the initial install and the system ran fine for weeks before I started messing with this driver.
