Default The 3D desktop with Mandriva 2007 Free

Hello,
In order to have the 3D desktop in my laptop inquiped with the graphical card, NVIDIA GeForce Go7200, I have installed first the packages, kernel-source, libX11-deve and demos and dependencies and then I have downloaded the driver nvidia using the link:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-9755.html
So, I've done:

Code:
#chmod a+x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run
Code:
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run
After the last command, I get the error message:
Quote:

ERROR:You appear to be running an X sever; please exit before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVEDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com
I hit OK, and then an other message:
Quote:
ERROR:Installation has failed.Please see the file ' /var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.You may download page at www.nvidia.com
So:
Code:
$cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log
gives:

i'm not sure what the error message you posted has to do with a 3d desktop. I can tell you however that you won't be able to install the graphics drivers while your x server is running.

You can disable the x server by typing

Code:
telinit 3
do what you did before. The installation should go ok.

Code:
telinit 5
this should restart your graphics server. If all goes well you should see a nvidia logo.
