nVidia Drivers - Installing from Source on RH9
I have the MSI K7N2G M/B with the nForce2 chipset.
I have managed to install Red Hat 9 (kernal 2.4.20-8) with no problems except that the Network isn't working and I think the hard disk is running slow.
I have seen posts on making and installing a new kernal to address the ATA100 problem but I am stuck on installing the nVidia drivers.
I have downloaded the source rpm
Put this in my home directory and tried to do the rebuild as instructed in the release notes.
After SU and password I am typing
rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm
This gives me the response
--rebuild: unknown option.
I have set up a couple of linux systems in the past but never had problems with drivers. So in this I am still just newbie.
Am I doing something fundamentally wrong?
