Cool how to update to 4349 nvidia drivers (slackware)


*note* i assume here that you have already installed
a previous nvidia driver + kernel, thus having such
requirements as the kernel source in place.

1. download these:

glx
kernel

2. extract them, go to a terminal (i exited my wm)
3. go to the kernel-dir, and do a 'make install'
4. go to the glx-dir, and do a 'make install'
5. run startx and presto. done.

i hope it goes as easy for you as it went for me.

kind regards.

Actually, in the top directory of the drivers (NVIDA-Linux.x86-1.0-4349) there is a make file, make install there will do both at the same time.

yes. that is the same; using the two tarballs as i
described will do the same as running the script.
