The installer log that you attached ends abruptly, without errors. Are you seeing an error when attempting to install the driver, or is the installation process hanging?

You're the only person who has ever reported an installation segfault, so I suspect something unique to your environment.

Which Linux distribution are you using?

I'm using Debian "lenny". Two days ago I changed kernel from 2.6.21-1-486 to 2.6.21-2-amd64. So it can by useful information as well.

First error happened when i tried to run: sh nvidia.run. It returned something like that nvidia-installer doesn't exists and abort. So I unpacked the archve manually and tried again and it was ok.

so you are using a mixture of 64bit kernel, 32 bit userland and highly unstable/experimental software?

reinstall a pure 64bit copy along with 32bit libs (ia32libs, if you wish to run 32bit code), or switch back to an x86 kernel. what you're doing now is just not right *g*

The reason I installed amd64 kernel was that 486 kernel didnt allow more then 880 MB RAM. I thought it can solve my problem. Which 32bit kernel should I use for athlon64?

You need a bigmem kernel to use more RAM than that. Actually, the bigmem on my Debian box seems to be overkill because it goes from 4 - 64 gig, but I don't see one for the 1-4 gig range (although I know there is a kernel option for it). Maybe the generic 686 one has that built-in. Worth a shot anyway.

I second that.

Reinstall. That is the cleanest solution.

Bigmem-kernel just be able to use a full gig aren't worth it. They waste to much performance. And today there is no reason not to do a 64bit install. 32bit software can still be run. So do it.

If debian can not give you a 64bit installation with 32bit compatibility libs, than switch to a distro which can - like gentoo.
