New NVIDIA problems. yay!
 
Okay, after spending a while to get my USB drives mounted, I've got a new problem with installing my new NVIDIA drivers:

After I run;
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

I get this;

Verifying archive integrity... _

and that underscore (cursor) just blinks as nothing happens for hours if I let it.

any ideas?

are you following the proper steps

did you exit the X server...did you get that package from a third party site(could be corrupted:confused: ?) did you try the version previous, and see if it does the same?

X server won't even start on my machine until I get the new drivers on. I'm working with a GeForce FX 5200, so I haven't even been able to set up an account other than root.

As far as the drivers are concerned, I got them from NVIDIA's webpage
