    Default NVIDIA 3d drivers work easy with BT2 final

    Thankyou thankyou thankyou is all i can say for that, even if it was not intentional.

    I had tried with other distro's like openSuse and KnoppixDvd without success (due to my n00bness apparently) but these steps ensured 3d capable drivers for my Nvidia and better resolution on my 19" tft

    Install BT2.0 Final to hard disk
    reboot into HDD install of BT
    download the latest Nvidia drivers from nvidia.com (can't post links yet sorry)

    log out of KDE

    open console and type:
    sh /path_to_download/xx-xx-nvidia-xx-xx.run

    click YES to all prompts EXCEPT to download the kernel source when it complains about not finding one.

    click YES to the prompt that asks to configure X on next run

    hey presto, run your startX (should see an NVIDIA splash) and click on your "start-menu" then go to system and see a brand spangly new NVIDIA control panel to set up the resolution you require.

    yummy!

    Aliosity, thanks for the tip! Following your instructions I successfully got my NVidia-equipped laptop running at resolution higher than 1024x768! Thanks!
