Default 8800 GTX Linux Driver Installation HELP...

Hello,

I've a graphics card - 8800 GTX by nVIDIA. I'm using RHEL 4.

I'm still new to this card and stuck at some point. I'm unable to install driver for the card in LINUX.

Can you please help in this matter in case you've seen such scenario earlier?

I've installed NVIDIA_CUDA_Toolkit_1.0_rhel4_x86.run currently... but it gives an error while installation saying that "Post installation sanity check failed"

Can you please tell me the steps to install graphics driver on Linux for this card?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks.

I tried installing one, but as soon as I ran

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.23-pkg0.run

command, it gave an error saying...

"No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)?"

How would I ensure that the driver setup gets the precompiled kernel interface?

That's not an error. All you have to do is answer yes to the question.
