Default Correct Driver for Redhat WS 4

Hi,

I have a Dell Precision 380N with a P4 630 Proecessor running Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS v4 Intel EM64T 64bit. The graphics card is a Quadro NVS 285 PCI-E. I'm trying to get the dual head to work and I'm failing miserably. When I go to install the IA32 driver it tells me I'm running x486_64. When I try the IA64 driver it tells me the same thing and that is also not compatible.

After spending the afternoon googling it is time to ask. What is the correct NVIDIA driver for RedHat WS v4 running on a P4?

thanks! Al

No, no. You need the X86_64 driver, not the IA64 (which is for the Intel Itanium)
In the drivers page, the correct one is identified as "Linux AMD64/EM64T", I wish they
renamed it x86_64.

IA64 is Itanium. You most likely need the x86_64 driver.

Thanks,
