Anyone have any idea at all how to get the NVIDIA drivers to install correctly on Red Hat 7.1?

I am totally ignorant on how to do this. I got it to work flawlessly on SuSE 7.1.......


Thanks in advance....

Cool Whew!

Yep, I updated EVERYTHING.

I actually broke down and called Red Hat about it. When I got ahold of someone, they told me to do a complete install, then get the drivers in the .gz files. Then I meerly extracted them, and did a 'make install' in the kernel directory, then the GLX directory, and alakazam! I have hardware accelerated 3d :-)

Ok. Downloaded the new 1.0-1251 driver tarballs and installed.

Now everything works fine when I am root.

nothing works when I am logged in as any other user :-(
