They weren't installed as part of 10.1 official? If not, go to the nvidia web site and they have them.

urpmi/gurpmi? It will need all of the repositories added that you want.

urpmi/gurpmi. Mandrake has nice GUI tools in the Mandrake Control Center.

Cheers.

Hi,
1. I suppose you can use RPMDrake to install these drivers

2. Set up URPMI : you can go on th MandrakeClub website, choose a mirror-list, choose Official 10.1 if it's your distro versions, you may also chose Club contrib, don't forget PLF (Penguin Liberation Front) to get "unofficial" goodies

3. You can try MandrakeOnline (paying service if I'm not mistaken)

Well I think that's all
Hopes it can help

Cheers

To find out more info about urpmi, go to zebulon.org.uk and easyurpmi. Remember to add an updates repository to you urpmi sources.

Use the Software Update in the Mandrake Control Center.
