Unhappy

i use SuSE linux 6.3, but when i try to select mach 64 under one of the lists in SAX, it says that i need to install it.

also, my actual card is an asus V3800, and when i select that, it says that i should contact them but they were unfortunately no help.

Red face

i downloaded the 2 drivers from nvidias web page.
i got a kernel driver : nvidia~1.rpm
and the glx driver : nvidia~2.rpm

i tried what u said, i made sure the files were in the
\ directory, and opened Konsole (SuSE) and typed
"rpm -ivh nvidia~1.rpm"
"rpm -ivh nvidia~2.rpm"
it always says "could not open file"

so what do i do, and once its done, how do i set it all up?

cheers for any help, m8.

Were you logged in as root when you typed the commands?

Ahh

Corel is based on Debian, so it does not have RPM. The last time I checked neither did SuSE. Does Nvidia have .tar.gz's available for download?

SuSE does appear to support RPM's, so you would want NVIDIA kernel 0.9-5 suse64 i386 rpm 09/05/2000 208436 Bytes for SuSE and NVIDIA kernel 0.9-5 tar.gz 09/05/2000 371589 Bytes
for Corel. If you download the tar just type
Code:
tar zxvf filename
A file called README or INSTALL is usually included.
