Talking Nvidia Releases New Graphics Drivers For Linux Platform


Have not figured out how to install the previous NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-1.0-4363.run.

Just go ahead and get this new one instead?




NVIDIA RELEASES NEW GRAPHICS DRIVERS FOR LINUX PLATFORM

WHAT: NVIDIA Corporation (http://www.nvidia.com), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, has just posted new Linux drivers for its award-winning GeForce graphics processing units. The new drivers are version 1.0-4496 with a release date of July 28, 2003.

WHERE: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-4496.html



WHEN: Now

RELEASE

HIGHLIGHTS:

GeForce FX 5900 support

Support for Active Stereo + TwinView

Initial support for APM power management

Improved OpenGL performance when rendering to multiple buffers (such as when using a stereo visual and rendering to GL_LEFT_AND_RIGHT).

DISTRIBUTION

SUPPORT:

Supports all major distributions by user compiling

Ships with precompiled kernel interfaces for:

o Red Hat Linux 9.0

o Red Hat Linux 8.0

o Red Hat Linux 7.3

Also, please note that this driver release supports NVIDIA Linux Update, an integrated installer that simplifies setup and deployment. With NVIDIA Linux Update, you can intelligently download the new drivers directly to your PC for the distribution you are using. NVIDIA Linux Update fully supports all major Linux OSes and CPUs.

Hey how did the installation go?

" Also, please note that this driver release supports NVIDIA Linux Update, an integrated installer that simplifies setup and deployment. With NVIDIA Linux Update, you can intelligently download the new drivers directly to your PC for the distribution you are using. NVIDIA Linux Update fully supports all major Linux OSes and CPUs."


Is there a major difference in the way the driver is installed?

Now that they have " an integrated installer that simplifies setup and deployment"
I checked out your webpages. How do you manage so many OSs on one machine? Does the bootloader handle them all or do you use Partition Magic or something similar?

Well i was able to install the older driver flawlessly. But now I am unable to install their new package. It claims it cant find my kernel header files to compile itself. Anyone else get this or know how to fix it?

Yeah I installed it on my Redhat 9.0 a few months back.

They released the new installation version which is different from old one. This one is much much easier and save a lot of works.
