Default Re: Problemas installing run file !

First, run md5sum to check the file integrity:

md5sum NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18-pkg1.run

It should print
e1ed7d04187dee04ea9d32a41e2b7899 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18-pkg1.run

If it differs from this, download again.

Then run with sh, as root:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.18-pkg1.run

If that fails, look at /var/log/nvidia-installer.log that should contain the error details.
Good luck.

Did you set FTP binary mode when you downloaded the file using FTP? If not, the file was probably corrupted during download.
