Trouble Installing XGI Z VGA driver for CentOS 6.3


I'm setting up and testing an Acer AT110 F2 server.

After installed CentOS 6.3 x86-64, I download the driver from Acer-support:

I chose the OS as RHEL 6.0 EM64T. cd to the EMT64 folder inside the packed. There is a .run file, and I suppose it should be the driver installer.

(1)When I run it using an user account, it said the user account isn't listed in /etc/sudoers. I tried edit the file, chmod it, but still, It won't let me edit (Even as root level 1).

(2)So I switch to find the group sudo in gnome user and groups, but I can't find it?

(3) I use su to enter root. Then run it. This is the output:

[root@localhost EM64T]# sh ./
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

XGI Linux driver installation for package 2.81.9


XGI Linux driver installation for package 2.81.9

Cannot open X11 installation path /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers. Exit.
I would like to ask:

+Does the package I chose correct? I mean does RHEL 6.0 compatible with CentOS 6.x?

+How can I make the user I want use sudo? (I used root to check the file's permission, even root can only read it...). Can I solve it using gnome-user-and-groups?

+Please help me install the driver.
