Compatible Nvidia Drivers


Hello, what Video card drivers are compatible with Debian? I'm looking at the Nvidia driver page and see no Debian Video Software, which version should I download? I'm running a GeForce4 on the Linux Box.

It says I must download a GLX file and a Kernel file. Could anyone tell me which ones?

Here is the site.

Thanks!

you just run the new driver installer (follow the above link to get the latest driver version 6111). you first need to get the kernel headers. switch to single user mode with

su -c "telinit 1"

type your root password when prompted, then follow these 4 easy steps:

apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r)
chmod +x <filename of nvidia driver you downloaded>.run
sh <filename of nvidia driver you downloaded>.run
telinit 2
