How do I install NVIDIA Drivers?


I tried renaming the *.tar.gz files to .tgz and installing them, but that didn't seem to work, can someone help me out, I'm a slackware noob. Thanks!

Hmm, you install it like this:

tar xvzf NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.tar.gz
tar xvzf NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.tar.gz

cd NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191

make install

cd ../NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191

make install

Then you edit your XF86Config file.

the documentation should be more than adequate, but if you search on this site some really good additional guides have been posted.
