Nvidia Drivers


I have been viewing this forum and also been in a few irc channels and day after day you see homos asking HOW DO I INSTALL NVIDIA DRIVERS? OH MY DRIVERS WONT WORK? I would like to know what the hell is so hard about tar zxvf the two tarbells then to go into the kernel dir and do make install then you go back into the glx dir and do make install again, then you edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config SEE THATS ALL THERE IS TO IT, ive done this on two or three different distros with out any problems so stop asking the same fucking questions and just RTFM

404, it's simple if it works. I know about many people who install the driver correctly and it hangs/prints something incorrectly and so on. The thing is that the driver isn't perfect.

BTW tar.gz is not an option for a person who doesn't have a compiler and doesn't want it.
