I'm feeling quite stupid now...
I had a lot of troubles installing this nvidia driver, and after all it was so simple... I supose this must be happening to a lot of Mandrake users, who are completely newbies in linux, and are attracted to Mandrake because is suposed to be the easiest distribution.
So, if you are a Mandrake user, chances are that you're also a newbie.
To install this nvidia driver:
- First of all, EXIT from the X mode. This is clearly said in the nvidia readme, but not in terms that a dummy as me can understand:
- Open a console.
- type >>> su
- input the root password
- type >>> init 3
- login as the root
- execute the >>> sh NVIDIA...run
- exit from the root to a standard user
- >>> startx
Chances are that now the driver is working.
To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears
