Installing a Nvidia driver run package
Will need following items:
1.Nvidia driver run package
2.Puppy version DEVX SFS package
3.Puppy version kernel source SFS
Nvidia driver run package:
Download from official Nvidia web site.
Get the specific Nvidia driver run package recomended for your hardware. (Linux version)
Make sure to get the bit version you need. (32bit or 64 bit)
Put the Nvidia run package in /mnt/home.
Puppy version DEVX SFS package and kernel source SFS package:
First try this in a terminal:
If not listed for download, you will have to go to the specific Puppy version repository to get them.
The DEVX SFS is usually where the Puppy version iso is located.
The kernel source SFS is in the Puppy version pet packages.
To use Getnvidia:
Well, install it.
Download the Nvidia run package, place in /mnt/home
Using SFS-Load-On-The-Fly program.
Load the devx and kernel source sfs packages.
It will walk you through the process.
Along with installing the driver. It also gives option to make a pet and or a sfs package of the driver.
The process of unpacking, compiling, and installing the driver needs free storage space and memory.
The Nvidia package is around 40 to 50 MB.
You need 5 or 6 times that space to run the process. _________________ I have found, in trying to help people, that the things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.
