Hi all !
i've got a big problem in order to install the latest nVidia drivers.
Here is my configuration:
- Debian GNU/Linux (unstable - kernel 2.6.5)
- GeForce III (3d prophet - hercules)
- ~780Mo RAM
- AMD 1800+ (up to 1650MHz)
The installation of the v6106 nVidia drivers block my whole pc. When gdm starts, i only got a black screen and nothing happen then... even Ctrl+Alt+1 or Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace don't work... It was really hard for me to recover a normal disk boot.
I used to compile the nVidia drivers by the APT tree (apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-source), but for 3 weeks, this tree is completely f**ked up for the nvidia packages.
I've got really big booting problems then, and i had to use another disk in order to "chroot" to my main disk...
After 4 hours, i succeed in installing the nVidia drivers that are downloadable from their site (whithout any conflict with the older ones). Now everything works fine, but i still use the version 5336.
Did someone succeed to install the 6106 ones ??
I heard that we can win a lots of fps, and even if linux hasn't a lot of games on it, i like to play ut2k4 from times to times
I'd be eternally greatfull
