Default Re: Wich driver is the one for me ?? Help !!

this is what i did:
close session
in gdm screen typed ctrl+alt+f1
went to command line
typed:
# /etc/init.d/gdm stop
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.04-pkg1.run

begins installation but got some errors... couldnt create /usr/lib/nvidia/libglx.so.xlibmesa no such file or directory (among other 4 or 5 errors like this one)
oh well, installation proceeded...
finish
# /etc/init.d/gdm start
logged in ... all ok

typed glxgears, opens windows with 3 gears spinning ok, but no text output on terminal/command line for me to know fps
typed glxgears -printfps

let it work for a while and opened/switched windows and shows variation in fps

once again i include in this post nvidia-installer.log so that you can take a look if you please, there you can see all the errors im talking about. Will wait for your opinion

one more time, thank you very much
