Re: 2.6 and NVIDIA kernel

I realized that I had not installed any games ( except
gnome games ) at all...
I did find some slow performance to play tuxracer,
chromium, etc...
So, I should installed NVidia driver then. Last night
I installed the driver and thank God I'm
Here's what I did :

debian box sid 2.6.5 and
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run. Doing :

-   ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
-   cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336.pkg1
-   as root doing : make install
-   edit /etc/inittab and change default runlevel to
-   reboot
-   cd to the directory where the NVIDIA...pkg1.run is
-   ./nvidia-installer
-   the installer suggest to change runlevel to 3.
    in my case, I didn't do what it suggest and go on 
     with runlevel 1 by answering 'No'.
-   the installer said that there's no kernel         
     interfaces and suggest to download...say 'NO' !
-   the installer than built its own kernel interface 
     for 2.6.5, just wait and see untill all process  
-   change runlevel via /etc/inittab to 5 ( or
whatever     you wish )
-   reboot.

Have a nice tuxrace..... ;-)
