Default Re: nVidia8756 driver install problem

don-dario:

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

I have been searching various forums for days and your post is the one that solved my problems. I was having the devil of a time getting my GeForce 7600 GS card running with Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger on my system (ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo, AMD64 3700, 2GB RAM, 2 SATA drives). You method worked perfectly. I threw in a few extra lines of code that I thought might be important and I mention them here on the offchance that some other noob like me finds them useful.

As this was a fresh install, I installed:
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo apt-get install make
sudo apt-get upgrade

These are probably obvious to most of you.

My faith in Linux was shaken there for a day or two as I failed time after time to get those NVIDIA drivers installed right, but I am back on track now.

don_dario: you ROCK!

Sincerely,
hawth
