Problem installing NVIDIA 43.49 drivers


I just installed Mandrake 9.1. Now I'm trying to install the drivers from the root terminal, but when I execute the .RUN file, an error message appears: "ERROR: Unable to find the system utility '1d'; please make sure you have the package 'binutils' installed. If you do have binutils installed, then please check that '1d' is in your path." How do I fix this?

Thats 'ld', not '1d', from a console or terminal emulator do "whereis ld", if it's not there then you should install the binutils rpm from your mandrake cd.
You are doing this as root, not as a user?

I'm pretty sure I'm installing the drivers a root - in the terminal, I'm typing "su -," then logging in. That's root, correct?

Thanks, Aussie. That's what I needed to do. Now, I can't save my XFree86 file with KWrite because I don't have permission to. Do you know how to set permissions?

You need to open kwrite as root, from a konsole after doing 'su -' or with the options when you use the <Alt><F2> mini CLI.
