NVIDIA Problem


Hi,

I have just purchased GeForce 6600GT AGP display card.

I have read the stickies that are here regarding the NVIDIA and Mandrake installations and have followed them all.

The issue I am getting is that upon reboot and typing startx I get

(EE) Unable to open /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a Open failed 2

I have looked into the directory and the file doesnt exist.

There is a libglx.so from which I changed the setting in the XFree86conf-4 but it didnt work giving me more errors.

Was this the right thing to do?, why would it look for .a when .so exists? Is this an error on the nvidia installation script?

Many thanks for any input
Regards
Danny

Sorted. I was about to through my pc through the window!!

Basically, the installer was not using the directory of my kernel source so I reinstalled the drivers like this


sh NVIDIA-WhatEverTheInstallerFileIsCalled --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux
