that i need this steps...

1) download.. (execute with sh)
2(download the files... (two files..) not one like in win...
3)instal the kernel and then the GLX

i have the two

then i go to install it....

first.. i unistall the 686 or up.. some like this... (remember like a win user XD i install this :P)

rpm -e NVIDIA_kermel-1....o686orUP.rpm

and write some like this..

rpm -q NVIDIA_kernel (but it says me.. the package NVIDIA_kernel is not installed i think this is ok)... i dont know for what is the -q switch... but it helps me in know what is installed....

the same for the GLX.. is not installed

then i

write this...

rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm
warning: user buildmeister dos not exist -using root
