That's not an x86 driver. Please visit the 1.0-4363 driver download page to grab the correct driver.

I had to extract it and use export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH and it worked and made a new usr file do I need to copy it to the real usr? I'm new to linux and I have to do that how can I copy the files and include them with out deleteing the other usr files?

Just run the 4363 installer. Don't give it any options, either (my guess is that you used --extract-only, right?).

The usr directory that it creates is not meant to be copied to your /usr directory. In particular, the usr/src/nv that is there, the sources for the kernel interface, shouldn't be put in /usr/src/nv.

The other files may not be put in the right places either, I don't know for sure. But the installer will (or at least should) get it right.

okay did that and it installed okay and eveything but xf86config does not have the driver listed should I manually write to the config file? If so what should I do (I did the device="nvidia" and still no results)?

I recommend reading or re-reading the "EDITING YOUR XF86CONFIG FILE" section of the readme file posted on the nvidia driver page. It has some good info in it. Browsing other people's attached XF86config files (just look around on this board) and typing "man XF86config" in a console are decent ways of getting familiar with the config file, which you want to do if your new to Linux.

Personal note: Work needs to give me more work! I've spent most of the day reading messages on this board.

There's also a sample XF86Config file in /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/
