X11 nvidia drivers

Didn't want to lose this gem, found on nvidia.com

Symptoms : installed nvidia graphics driver for X11 on Debian 3.0rc1, doesn't work.


if you're sure you xconfig is ok, try adding alias char-major-195 nvidia
to your /etc/modutils/aliases file, then run update-modules

[edit, oh yeah, reboot after that]

driver is from nvidia :

http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-4363/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0- 4363.run

see the readme :


His tip also worked for a nvidia vanta in a compaq evo dv500 for debian 3.0rc1 woody with the backported Gnome 2.2.

Driver instalation script aparantly does not register the module.

This is by far the largest module I've ever seen :
