Default nVIDIA Beta Drivers

When I try to install the latest nvidia beta driver it says can't compile kernel,
the previous beta driver was working fine but now I don't have any of them.

This is a known bug. You'll need to change the /bin/sh symlink so that it points to /bin/bash instead of /bin/nash.

Thanks,
Lonni

One way to get around this might be to try typing 'bash ./NVIDIA-blahblahblah.run'

PS. Please change 'blahblahblah' to a more appropriate string ;-)

Type the following command as root:
ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh
And then run the installer again. Should work :-)

<= Look ma! 100th post!
