DISCUSSION: HOWTO: Installing nVidia Grapics Drivers on Debian Etch


This thread is to discuss the article titled: HOWTO: Installing nVidia Grapics Drivers on Debian Etch


Quote:
One of my pet peeves with Linux is not having the 3D Accelleration available while in Linux. Since my Windows hard drive completely failed, working in Linux hasn't been so bad, but a couple of the games I like to play are a bit slower due to software rendering. Below I outline the steps I took to get the nVidia drivers (1.0-8178 at the time of this writing) working with a default netinst of Debian Testing.


Get into pure console mode (runlevel 3)
  • Reboot into Recovery Mode or switch down to runlevel 3 or the equivalent
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get install binutils
Install Kernel Source
  • apt-get install linux-source-2.6.12 - replace 2.6.12 with your kernel version ('uname -a' or 'uname -r')
  • cd /usr/src
  • tar -jxvf linux-source-2.6.12
  • ln -s linux-source-2.6.12 linux
Install Kernel Headers
  • apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.12-1 linux-headers-2.6.12-1-386
Install nVidia Drivers
  • sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run
Finally, Reboot to get back into X.

If your running Debian Etch or Sid, Kano's Kanotix script works as well.

Download the install-nvidia-debian.sh script and run it as root.
