post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
See title... I've tried and tried, but I fail at life...

Please provide step by step.

I already have the newest driver.

It's 5:30 here so I'm going to bed. I did this though:

1. Download latest driver
2.
Quote:
sudo apt-get install build-essential gcc-3.3-base
3. Ctrl+Alt+F1
4.
Quote:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
5.
Quote:
cd ./Desktop
6.
Quote:
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run
That was all good and dandy. The problem came with the building of the kernel. It failed... and I'm not sure how to fix it.

I was pissed earlier so I didn't give any information sorry.
