Slackware 8.1 failed dependencies
I have dowloaded the source RPMS 4191 but after
when I try
rpm -ivh /usr/src.../NVIDIA_kernel...
I get the error
error: failed dependencies:
kernel >= 2.2.0 is needed by NVIDIA...
rpm >= 3.0.4 is needed by NVIDIA...
/bin/sh is needed by NVIDIA...
though I have kernel 2.4.18 and rpm 4.0.2. I recompiled a kernel this morning as I had read that kernels from the CD might not have been compiled by the same gcc compiler... but it didn't help.
Any suggestion welcome.

don't use RPM's with slackware.
follow the instructions here:

just download the source, and compile it.
if you have a 2.5.5~ kernel, you need to go to http://www.minion.de/nvidia.html
for the patch to make the driver work for the 2.5 kernel's. but if you have a kernel like 2.4.18 to 2.4.20 then you should be fine with the drivers.
1. ./configure && make && make install && ldconfig
2. modify your xfree86 file and it should work.
