Default Trouble running .run package provided by nvidia

Hi,

I'm re-installing my nvidia drivers after my sound went out. My sound is back in, but I'm at 800x600 and each letter is the size of my thumb.

to compile the module for the nvidia proprietary drivers, they recommend stopping gnome and running their .run package. I am able to stop gnome, but then when I say

sudo NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18.pkg1.run

returned is:

"command not found"

even though I have typed sudo NV and then hit tab, so I know I am in the right directory and the file name is right.

Is there something I have to do to get this thing to run?

Thanks!

Phil

The current directory is not in the path by default for security reasons. You'd need to run:
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18.pkg1.run

Also, the script might not have executable permissions. To mark is executable:
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18.pkg1.run

Thanks, the ./ worked for me. Learned something new. The package ran, and installed, but..

It said that the driver was already installed. I just posted this to a new thread since it's a different problem with a different post title. Thanks for your help.
