Re: NVidia official driver
I am trying to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run on my new amd64
system but it didn't find kernel source. How do I can install this driver?
My kernel is 2.6.17-2 and Ive installed linux-headers-2.6.17-2
Never EVER use the NVidia installers - they're a quick route to a broken
1) ensure you have non-free enabled in your sources.list
2) install module-assistant
3) run "m-a a-i nvidia"
4) install the "nvidia-glx" package
5) "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg", and select the "nvidia" driver (this
step won't work if you've edited your xorg.conf by hand before, if so,
make this change by hand)
The above relies on having access to the nvidia packages, which are in
stable & unstable (but not testing). For testing, just grab the packages
manually from unstable:
