Trying to find where to download drivers for ASUS 6200 Nvidia Geforce card for ubuntu


Could someone give me some advice on the best website to download drivers for an ASUS/Nvidia 6200 video card?

Also, I will need to turn off x and install this manually as the computer I need to do this on does not have access to the internet...

I have downloaded the latest stable version of the kernel but I'm not sure if this is the source kernel?


I have the latest version of Ubuntu installed as well.

You can get the drivers from nvidia's website. As far as getting Ubuntu to boot into a cli and not X just go to /etc/rc2.d and change S13gdm to s13gdm. then reboot. This will keep the x server from starting. after installation make sure to move the file back to it's original name. S13gdm.
