Well as title says..
Few questions i need answered.. ok.. i set up xorg file and i can get video.. the problem is i can only get it to work using the Generic Nvidia Drivers.
So.. now i figure ok i'll go to nvidia install their driver. Obviously its not that easy.. its linux.
So i unpack their driver.. get accept the license next thing i know .. then it errors not saying anything just stops working and installation doesn't work. I'm not in "X" while trying this... and other than that i don't know what to do.
Well.. first question.. what exactly is the xorg file that i edit to make my mouse and all that good stuff work? I mean becuase of it i can use this computer and all.. but the video card isn't working how it should and it ghosts boxes insanely horrible.
I guess the other is.. how do i actually install this driver.. Do i need to unpack it.. somehow build it into the kernel?
As you can see i don't just need to be shown how to do it.. but i need some explanation on what i'm doing and why
.. learning is better than just doing it a few times.
Please someone out there help this newb out.. this computer is a constant headache and my learning experience is a slow one but i seem to be making progress.
