Default Re: Mandriva 2010 Driver 190.42 "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device"

Hi. As far as I know, 185.18.36 is the latest driver in the Mandriva 2010 repository. So it looks like You've downloaded the driver from NVIDIA site, right? If so, then You should switch to the driver from the Mandriva repository, because it get's updated automatically and rebuilt automatically after each kernel update. Run drakx11 as root, then select the right graphics card (GeForce 6100 and later). If You have set the repositories correctly, You'll get a message about proprietary driver installation. Select YES, tune the settings and select OK. It might happen, that you'll stuck in a text console when you confirm the re-login dialog ... it doesn't matter .... just reboot the computer ...
