Installing video card with drivers in Mandrake 9.1


I installed a video card with a bt878 chip and downloaded drivers but cannot install it.

I copied the driver in etc/protm as they sais in the INSTALL doc. Then, when I do ./, it says:

[root@localhost protm]# ./
bash: ./ Permission denied

But I am logged as root as u can see. The driver supports kernel 2.4.7-10 and 2.4.18-3. I have 2.4.21-0

I don't know if this is enough information for u.
Thanks a lot

Go into the directory where you downloaded the driver in Konqueror, and right click it. You need to check the permissions, so that the file is executable, then it should run fine.

Is this a video card with a TV out chip or a TV Tuner PCI card?
If it's a TV tuner card, the command "lspci -vv" (as root) will display information that will help us determine the problem, do the following to get the output as a text file called pci-bus.txt,
lspci -vv > pci-bus.txt
Then cut and paste the section about the card you need to get working.

If it's a video card with a TV out chip then we need to know the make and model and what driver your using for it.
