Help with getting NVIDIA's gelato installed

ok, I'm not that great with linux, so in the install documents it says to do this:


* Install (using the installer) I did this
* The gelato installer will by default place the distribution into /opt/nvidia/gelato, though you may override this when installing. I did this. I used the defaults

* You will need to set the environment variable GELATOHOME to point to the directory where Gelato was installed. need help with this!! How do I do this???

* Some versions of glibc can cause Gelato to crash. Gelato may render a valid image and crash at program termination. For RPM-based systems (RedHat), you can check your current glibc version with:
rpm -q glibc
Gelato is known to fail with glibc version 2.3.2-11.9 which ships with RedHat 9. Gelato has been validated for RedHat 9 with version 2.3.2-27.9.7, for RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 with version 2.3.2-95.6 and with RedHat 7.2 with version 2.2.4-13. We recommend updating to the latest version of glibc.

* Older versions of RedHat (eg. prior to RedHat 9) require that $LD_LIBRARY_PATH be set to $GELATOHOME/lib. RedHat 9 does not have this requirement.

* For some features to work, Gelato requires Python 2.2 and gcc 3.2

After installation, the user configuration and licensing must be configured. After installation is complete, you should be able to run the following command without errors:

For Linux (in a shell window):

"$GELATOHOME/bin/gelato" -check

when i run that command, it says no such file or directory.

I am Running FC2.

Please help me!

You need to specify an enviroment variable called GELATOHOME and set it to /opt/nvidia/gelato - this is done like this:
export GELATOHOME="/opt/nvidia/gelato"
More on BASH (your shell) available here.
