wget nvidia drivers - why doesn't it work??


sorry but this is getting really frustrating....

I am trying to download the Nvidia drivers because I installed debian and can't get a gui until I do, so i have to use wget or a text downloader...


I tried:

wget http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d...-7664-pkg1.run


It downloads a file called that but when I do sh NVIDIA-Linux..


it doesn't work and gives me things of html syntax so I think I am downloading the text that says this............


How do I download the actual file??


I also tried -r --no-parent and - l1 to no avail.......



Thanks for any info.

It'd be simpler to use apt-get. `apt-get install nvidia-glx` would probably do the trick.

The URL is wrong. Try http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-7664/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7664-pkg1.run
