Hello everyone, I need help regarding installing the nvidia linux driver. I have it downloaded, and when I execute the binary in konsole, it says it can't install because it needs to be run under root. Now, I can't login as root, nor can I sudo the file, because apparently I don't have the permissions necessary to act as sudo, my username doesn't have the permissions necessary.
So, how do I enable either root or sudo access? And, is their a nonbinary nvidia driver for Mandriva (.rpm format?)? Also, should I install a different monitor before or after the installation, as this 13" screen is just too small?
Thank you for the help.
I also have kubuntu laying around, or something similar (Linuxmint). But, its the old feisty edition, I have the 7.10 version at school.
