Default Can't figure this out:-\

I'm trying to install the Nvidia drivers on my system.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/freebsd_1.0-7676.html

That's the link that I'm using for the driver. Once I get the files, I extract them to my machine and then open a konsole. I then go to the directory that I extracted to and type in make install. I have updated my kernel and all my packages. I'm using the Debian Kanotix distrobution. I then get this error message:

Makefile:17: *** missing separator. Stop.

I don't know what to do, or how to fix this. Any ideas?

That's the driver for FreeBSD, an entirely different OS. You'll need the Linux driver

What is the driver for Kanotix then?

I'm really confused with all the driver names.

As I said, you need the LINUX driver. Never heard of anybody running Linux that didn't know the name of their OS
