failed dependencies: Nforce 2 chipset drivers


Tried installing the latest chipset drivers for my motherboard in the hopes of getting my nic to work. Used the source RPM installation directions off Nvidia's website, was working as advertised till the actuall install part. I get a:

failed dependencies:
/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 page.
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.
