From the Nvidia Website (http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li..._ia32_1.0-4349):

STEP 4: Install
Type "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run" to install the driver.
See the README (text) for more detailed instructions. If you have any questions or problems, please check the linux discussion forum. If you don't find an answer to your question there, you can send email to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.

I would strongly suggest you read the readme file on the website - it has clear instructions for installing the driver and should stop you from messing up your build (which I have done in the past)! :-)

but nothing that says "Accept" or "Do not Accept" ever comes up... so i dont know what to do

i also tried sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run --extract-only and it extracts to a dir. i type in "make install" and i get this

cd usr/src/nv; make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349/usr/src/nv'

You appear to be compiling the NVIDIA kernel module with
a compiler different from the one that was used to compile
the running kernel. This may be perfectly fine, but there
are cases where this can lead to unexpected behaviour and
system crashes.

If you know what you are doing and want to override this
check, you can do so by setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH.

In any other case, set the CC environment variable to the
name of the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.


*** Failed cc sanity check. Bailing out! ***

make[1]:
*** [gcc-check] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349/usr/src/nv'
make:
*** [kernel_module_install] Error 2

?? i dont know what the hell to do

Ought to be a crime. I don't know what's up with everybody shipping mismatched compilers and kernels.

First, if there's an checksum at the site, make sure your download isn't screwed. Contradictory impressions there.

If it's good, I guess you'll have to upgrade your compiler to make it match. Or do what it says and risk overriding the conflict.

Should have posted all this first, though.

I had a mismatch like that (Vector and winmodem drivers) and just ripped out the old system and put in one where I compiled the kernel myself and knew it would match. So then I ran into different problems, of course. Got the drivers installed though. As much good as that did.

It works OK for me on redhat 8, I'm going to try on SuSE later but it should be fine. You're better off using the installer program though, just hit enter on the license screen

CoughWindowsCough

That file ran perfectly fine on my full install of RedHat 9.
I just did everything README told me to do.
I think I typed "telinit 3" in the console to exit X-server.
