Subject description: Use 6.06 instead.
 

Can anyone offer advice on installing Nvidia driver for GT630 graphics card? There is a linux driver for the card. Built-in drivers do not handle the display (oversized). Also, some programs (Lightworks) require a proprietary driver.

can the existing Nvidia driver be packaged for Tahr (6.06)?

Many thanks

I'm afraid I got ahead of myself. After spending most of yesterday trying unsuccessfully to install 6.05, I managed to get 6.06 up and running with the proprietary Nvidia driver. Sorry for the bother.

Do you mean that Tahrpup 6.06 comes with the right driver, or that you were able to install the proprietary driver in 6.06 but not in 6.05? If the latter, what steps did you take to install it?

The Nvidia driver can be installed via Quickpet. However, after making a fresh pup in order to resolve other issues I am unable to launch Lightworks, even with the Nvidia driver installed.
