Scroll up a couple posts on that page. I gave a COMPLETE description of what to do, how to do it, and why you are doing it( you'll recognize the post when you see it. Its about 4 screens long ^_^). The last post under it that I made tells the appropriate commands in case you didn't know them. Tell me if you have any more trouble! It took me 4 days to solve this, so I'm very willing to help!

hylke do uname -r (as root) this will give you your kernel type. Then install the headers for that kernel. i.e. apt-cache search kernel-headers* find the one that corresponds with your kernel then apt-get install kernel-headers-xxx

i installed my kernel source from my cd(apt-get install kernel-source) and then typed:
./nvidia_1.run --kernel-source-path /usr
to install my nvidia driver, but it sayd debian has a too old gcc compiler.
So i downloaded the new gcc compiler, put it on floppy and then installed it on my computer.But when i runned my nvidia it still said i have a tool old compiler but i have 2.95.4 and it needs 2.95.
So what do i need to do to get this working?
thanx hylke

Fatal server error: No screens found.
I have changed my run level but that didn't help(changed it back now).
I also runned xf86config after i configured it and rebooted it it still doesn't work.
Any ideas what to do?
thanx Hylke
i had the same problem. this is what I did to fix it

apt-get install x-window-system

apt-get downloaded some files, installed them and then I was able to startx and got in

I don't know if that will help, but I had the same problem and same error and that fixed it.

Now i need to get my mouse working and I'm good.

Without internet apt-get isn't going to do anygood. It checks the sites online for updates and if it tells you that it's up to date that is only as good as of the last time apt-get had access to the internet, which sounds like never in this case.

If I may suggest that you go out and buy a cheap external serial modem. It is going to make your life so much easier.

Get it from here http://packages.debian.org/stable/devel/gcc-2.95, the file size is small enough to fit on a floppy.

Have you tried to edit your /etc/ld.so.conf file to add the path to your latest version of gcc?
