NVIDIA Drivers in Linux

By Frenchwood ·
Does anyone know a sure fire way of getting NVIDIA drivers installed on Linux?

dist:Debian Sarge

I've been toiling on this for days now with little to no sucess, i've tried using the NVIDIA auto installer with a variety of errors turning up, each time i resolve one, another pops up.
I've tried editing /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 after editing various pieces of information!


any help would be much appreciated!

well I haven't run into nvidia setup issues yet but I haven't tried Sarge yet.

May I suggest you give us some info regarding the error messages you are getting?

At this point I wonder if you should not roll back your changes and try using Debian's package manager/installer Synaptics.

Let us know what your error messages are and if you have had any other issues. (some basic info about your system and kernel level would be useful)
