/bin/sh, /bin/sh is needed by NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261
any ideas how to fix this?
You don't use RPM's with Slack, unless you want to convert them with ->
$ rpm2tgz filename.rpm
to change it to a Slackpack and install again with ->
# installpkg filename.tgz
In Slack you may prefer to compile from source unless there's a Slackpack
already available -- there is not for the nforce chipsets. Unless you want
to use rpm2tgz, you need the file NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz and you
should follow the instructions in STEP 4: Install on the Linux nForce Driver
You will need to read those instructions thorougly, but I believe that after
you've done that, you'll have a good idea of how to compile them correctly.
