I find a script ot test if the nvidia drivers are correctly installed here in LQ.
So I run it on my pc and thats what i get this error
(initial tests runs fine)
The next step involves making sure you have the proper files in
the right places, and that the kernel module loaded correctly.
Press enter to begin the test.
First lets make sure you don't have the old modules still present
You don't appear to have any conflicting older drivers. Now lets check
if the new driver files are in place...
libGLcore.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 (0x4006f000)
All the files seem to exist. Now I'm going to see if your kernel
module is loaded correctly...
nvidia 2126472 6 (autoclean)
The kernel device /dev/nvidia1 does not exist, is not a device,
or does not have the proper permissions set. This dev entry should
have been created when you created the kernel module. If you
compiled the module by hand, you may have to create this device
manually (major number 195, minor number 1). After this is done,
please run this script again.
I've a Geforce2 and the following related devices under /dev
How can I solve this problem?
Please note that im able to use the card and play games such as UT2k4 and WET but im wondering how can solve this and if it would somehow benefit the whole ystem..
