Default Re: Help needed for installing riva-tnt drivers for Debian lenny

Hi again ..

I re-installed my debian and managed to install nvidia drivers to gnome by
using inch newer file NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.09-pkg1.run.
At as least i think the driver installation went well ..and gnome was happy and running.

But the glx was still missing.. so i tried to install it by typing

apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-dev nvidia-xconfig

And afther that i ended to same again.

Gnome dount start and re-running driver installation gives errors.

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.09-pkg1.run gives tha fancy error

installation path, 'X: warning; process set to priority -2 instead
