Need driver for Geforce MX4000 video card


I have Debian and Slackware installed on my computer.
I have a Geforce MX 4000 nvidia card
I need a driver for this card, and I'm not sure which one to install.

Thanks for help.

Using Debian etch 4.0

I downloaded the Nvidia driver for the Geforce MX4000:
Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run.
I tried installing it:
Code:
sh Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run.
Here is a copy of the nvidia-installer log file:

ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
ERROR: Unable to connect to download.nvidia.com (unknown host)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.
ERROR: You do not appear to have libc header files installed on your system.
Please install your distribution's libc development package.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
I tried installing libc:
Code:
apt-get install libc, but says there was no such package.
why can't I connect to ftp://download.nvidia.com?

Appreciate help in installing this driver.
Thanks.

Try using Synaptic instead of apt-get. Synaptic should show you which packages you have installed, and which are available to install.

Look for linux-libc-dev or something similar.

I don't have a Desktop; that's why I need to install a driver. I'm just using text mode.
