Did you mean you downloaded the NVIDIA drivers? To run the file, open a terminal and cd to the directory where you downloaded it and then do "sh filename.run" without the quotes. After you install, you'll need to do some configuring, so have a look at this.

Not sure about the glibc problem, but you might wanna consider upgrading from RH 9, as it's out of date now.

As root, type "init 3", that should stop your X server and give you the CLI.

When installing the rpm, see if there are any error messages. Use the command
Code:
 rpm -ivh glibc***
That should give you the error messages. Post them here.

You'll need the glibc-common RPM and certainly a whole lot more. I'd look into using apt4rpm or yum to simplify things a bit. Since RH9 is old and out of support, I would suggest looking at www.fedoralegacy.org for resources relating to updating the system, setting up apt, etc.

It looks like that's because you have an earlier version of glibc on there and you're trying to install the new one without uninstalling the older one. I'm not sure how safe it is to remove it, it could possibly break stuff.

You will need to upgrade the glibc-common package, since you already have an older version. Use the command:
Code:
rpm -Uvh glibc-common**
In linux, you might have noticed, that one package depends on another package. Sometimes dealing with these dependencies can be very troublesome, thats why there are programs like Yum and apt. These programs will automatically take care of dependencies. You could say that YUM is the big daddy of "Add/Remove programs" in windows.

I dont use redhat, so I cant tell you how to use yum, but I'm sure you can get a lot of info on google, or someone here will be kind enough to guide you and give you a few links.

Good luck

Hello there,
many times its easy to install things using some tools e.g
"apt" is a tool for debian ( i found it working for RH 9 also )
"urpmi" is for Mandrake.
"yum" is for Fedora/RH.
"YaST" for SuSE.

regards

APT works on Debian and any rpm based distros but most rpm based distros with their own native package management tools don't use it.
