Ok, are there any instructions for installing it ? (Like an "INSTALL" or "README" ?) It seems ridiculous that the only method to install it is to copy it in there. Maybe you should e-mail the authors of it and tell them to make something a little nicer, a little easier, a little more sane.

Sorry I edited that post because I was terribly terribly wrong (I blame the grass!). Sorry

it's 64-bit ... it will also work as 32-bit minus some benefits, of course

Slackware is a 32 bit OS. Nvidia's installer will complain if you try to install the 64 bit version.

i installed the 32 bit driver "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7185-pkg1.run" and it went fine.
i also followed the following instructions:
-----------------------------------
Remove the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")
(or Driver "fbdev")

and replace it with the line:

Driver "nvidia"

Remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLCore"

In the Module section of the file, add the line (if it does not already exist):

Load "glx"
----------------------------------------------------------------------

but i dont think that caused the problem.

I would use 'xorgsetup', because it will, in general, produce better results. For refresh and (horiz)sync:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
	HorizSync    28.0 - 65.0
	VertRefresh  57.0 - 63.0
	Option "DPMS"
EndSection
Only the stuff in red is important.

Remember to put your own values if you have them.

Now, that I see it, don't install ancient drivers "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7185-pkg1.run" unless you have a very good reason to. Get the latest version please:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html

And also, please put stuff like that log you posted in code tags, so it doesn't mess up the page formatting (which is making me scroll left and right at this very moment)

so sorry about that, i didnt notice.
i did download the Linux IA32 Latest Version: 1.0-9755. it all went fine. it even wrote in the xorg.conf file.
the terminal seems a little blurry is it because of the resolution, in windows it is 1280x800.
i am sending the xorg.conf and the log.

I see ... they definitely have support ... let's see, they have support for:

Code:
Operating System:

    * • Microsoft Windows 98 (1)
    * • Microsoft Windows 98 SE (3)
    * • Microsoft Windows ME (6)
    * • Microsoft Windows 2000 (101)
    * • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (2)
    * • All (of the above)
I'm so glad I'm using Micro$oft Window$ ... they have great support for me there.

Is it just me or is this spam ? I'm not sure ... but I'm betting it is.
