Open the directory where your .run file is and leave that open.
Next open your terminal as 'root'
Than try :
Code:
cd (name of directory where that .run file is)
Than type: bash (name of that file.run) and hit enter.
Upon hitting enter you should get the installer to install that driver.

In that case I don't think that's the correct driver for your platform.
That is if your computer is 64-bit--
I see that back in post #5 that your computer is 64-bit-

Your running a Live CD; right? Or is that distro actually installed?
If so it might be your Geforce 6150 I'll go look for another driver for you and see what I find-

The nvidia-current driver is the most recent driver for newer cards. You only want to use nvidia-173 if you've an old card that is not supported by the nvidia-current driver, i.e. the GeForce 5 series.

There is also a nvidia-96 driver for even older cards, the GeForce 2 through 4 series.

This command will show you exactly what Geforce you have with certainty-
Code:
lspci -nn | grep VGA
Here is the Debian WiKi for Nvidia:

How are you installing Debian?
A Live CD?
Or USB?

Is this in Mint or Debian? I had Debian on a while ago, and to stop the X server, I think (not sure) the command is, as root:
Code:
/etc/init.d/gdm3 stop
That might be right, and might do for Mint as well.

What is this kill x about? Is it related to a server?
