Default nVIDIA 8800 GTX Linux Driver Installation HELP...

Hello All,

I've a graphics card - 8800 GTX by nVIDIA. I'm using Linux - RHEL 4.

I'm still new to this card and stuck at some point. I'm unable to install display driver for the card in LINUX.

Can anyone please help in this matter in case you've seen such scenario earlier?

I've installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run currently... but it gives an error while installation saying that "Post installation sanity check failed"

Can you please tell me the steps to install graphics driver on Linux for this card?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks.

Driver installation instructions are included with the driver README. Please see the forum sticky posts if you're experiencing a problem.

Thanks for reply...

ReadME does contain the procedure but I want to confirm whether the driver I'm trying to install is the correct one...

Can you pls tell me if the driver I'm installing NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run is the right one for RHEL 4 on 8800 GTX

Once that is confirmed, I can follow the corrosponding ReadMe file...

The driver README documents the GPUs which it supports. 100.14.19 is the latest driver that supports your graphic card.

I guess I don't understand what isn't clear.
