Have Slackware - need help to install nvidia 5200 driver
I believe I may have a video card issue. But I can not prove it.
Video Card: eGforce-FX 5200 Lite 128 M by eVGA.
When starting X, the display disapears. It has never worked. The Slackware install seemed to go pretty smooth. I believe it is running, I just can not see it.
I have tried RedHat 9, to no avail.
I think I have eliminated the monitor as the issue as i have swapped out monitors. I also have tried a Matrox Millenium video card, but the results are the same.
I do not know how to install a Linux driver for the video card. I downloaded something from NVidia, but it appears as a text file. Is that right?
I do not know Linux commands and such, but would appreciate any suggestions.
