the background:
linux 8.0 does not exist. please give the REAL name of the distribution you have installed. i'd presume you mean redhat...

problem:
how do you know? have you tried anything to see what's going wrong? have you looked at your /var/log files?

possible solution:
what driver? what card do you have?

you need help on:
how to click the search button to find a thousand questions all asking how to install source drivers ;-)

It's very dangerous to ask questions when you jump to your own conclusions in the post... there's a good chance that there's somethign else going wrong, and new drivers aren't needed. BUT as you've given next to no useful informatino about your system, we are unable to comment on it.... try skimming through the first link on my siganture, it'll help you get an awful lot more out of place like this. thanks

ra2833, your reaction is way outta line.

I have closed this thread because you do not act in a way that is mature, productive or otherwise enhancing for our community.


As moderator I will be keeping an eye on your next posts. If you choose to display the same childish attitude, lack of respect or otherwise try to disturb the good atmosphere of this board, I will see to it you are dealt with properly.

*If you want to take this up with me, BMG, but you'll be foolish to do so w/o first apologize to the ones you've insulted.
