Hello amd64's list
I'm a newbie to the amd64 plataform, and I'm triying to compile a
nVidia [GeForce FX 5200].
I have trying the method related
download the newest driver from http://www.nvidia.com and run the
installer as root. It compiles a kernel module and install all
necessary files into the right directories.
It works here perfectly.
no no NO NO NO NO NO _NO_ _NO_
nvidia-installer _WILL_ break your installation. Maybe not today,
maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life.
PLEASE, NEVER use nvidia-installer on any distribution with a non-crap
1) apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
2) check the gcc version used to compile your kernel (cat /proc/version)
3) if neccessary, install it and set the CC environment variable (this
is definitely going to be gcc-3.4 or gcc-4.0)
4) m-a a-i nvidia
5) modprobe nvidia, and add "nvidia" to the end of /etc/modules
