NVidia drivers in Debian 3.0 r2
Hi, I'm quite new to linux, I have successfully installed it on a "test" system about 6 months ago, and have now taken the steps required to install it to a second HDD in my main machine.
The problem is, I need to manually install the drivers for my graphics card. I'm using an AMD 1.8Ghz Athlon XP, Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440 gfx card. I have downloaded the latest drivers from nividia's linux page (NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4499) and the kernel module (NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4499) but I'm at a loss about what to do now.
The documentation in the files mention a new packaging format which has .run extension which is supposed to do everything automatically, but only the IA32 drivers uses that method, the two files I downloaded were .tar.gz. I have gunzipped them and de-tar'd (sic?) them to my home directory, and it leaves "Makefile" and "usr".
I've been told to run the makefile by doing :$ make ./Makefile but the make command seems to be missing??? If I type :$ m and double tap tab to get a list, there isn't a make listed there.
It doesn't help that I have yet to configure my ethernet card, so I'm currently downloading in windows, burning to CD, then reading in linux!
Thanks in advance for any help or criticism,
